If you have a fireplace at home that you no longer use, here are some ideas as to how you can still maximize this area. All you have to do is decorate your non-working fireplace right now.

Just recently, Elle Décor compiled a list of ways on how you can redecorate or reuse your fireplace at home. First on the list is by using it as an area to store candles and a side table. You can also put a rug right in front of the fireplace where you can sit or lie sometimes.

Also on the list is by using the fireplace as a storage area for books or photo albums. The upper part of the fireplace may be used to store trophies, vases and figurines on.

You can also use your non-working fireplace as an accent for your living room. Move two couches on each side of the fireplace and use it as your wall décor. Make sure to still have a coffee table, but you can also use the upper part of the fireplace as your storage area.

If you have children at home and want to make sure that they won't suddenly enter the fireplace, what you can do is close this area up. You can use different types of bricks and stones to design this part of your living room. After closing up your fireplace, you can just use it as an extra space in your own home.

Lastly, you can also pile up some logs inside your fireplace. This is a very good idea for those who love camping or doing some activities outdoors. At least, it would be very easy for you to get logs and bring them to your next outdoor adventure soon, according to The Art of Doing Stuff.

So what are you waiting for? Make sure to consider these five ideas when redesigning your non-working fireplace at home.
