We are moving in a few weeks to a house with an ultra modern electric fire which is hung on the wall. It’s not to our taste at all, we currently have a traditional marble effect fireplace and mantelpiece etc.
Any ideas please on how I can make it look cosy/less like a TV/more Christmassy until we can change it in the New year?
not just me who’s not a fan then. I’m not sure what it looks like when on, we are hopefully moving in end this month. I was thinking of a floating oak shelf above it with a garland on but don’t know if that will just jar with the ultra modern fire?
Have a look and see where external chimneys are located, that's a bit of a clue. Have a bang around the walls to see if something is plastered over where you might expect it. Also fireplaces are usually placed in the most sensible location in a room so think about where youd have put it.
Mostly ask the current owner with the bad taste as they likely covered it up to make their ultra modern room😅
It's a lovely room, apart from the fire! I've never seen anything like that before, I thought it was a tv. I would second a pp in either having the firplace opened up eventually, but I would use it over Christmas (if it's gas it will need professional removal). You never know, it might be really cold.
