Fireplaces play a vital role in creating a comfortable, warm space. Both wood and gas fireplaces give off a beautiful warm glow that only adds to what you’re creating. Candles and dim lighting can also create similar effects. Display a large collection of candles on a buffet or windowsill to create a fireplace look.
