At present, there is a great alternative to the bulky brick fireplace - a homemade fireplace. Such a fireplace can make and install each person in his apartment, in the country, or a country house or even in the office. Homemade fireplace, unlike a brick, takes up less space, it is much easier and, accordingly, cheaper and easier to install.
The self-made fireplace can be both "working", and "decorative". “Worker” means a real fire can be kindled in his firebox. It is impossible to kindle a fire in a “decorative” fireplace for objective reasons.
Let us examine in more detail the types of homemade ovens.
This fireplace is "working". To create it, you need a metal frame (cast iron, steel and other iron). First you need to fix the metal corners on the floor. Attach iron walls to the corners to make a small box. The furnace must be made of a double layer of metal to increase the productivity of the fireplace.
After the steel frame of the furnace is ready, it is necessary to install a chimney. To do this, use pipes, round blocks. Install the oven door. It will also be metal.
At the end you need to take care of the safety of the structure. Check all joints, seams, prepare the wall adjacent to the fireplace with a special material.
Such a metal furnace is usually not decorated with anything, but sometimes use special cladding materials. Despite the small weight of the structure itself, this furnace can independently heat a small room.
This fireplace is "decorative". He will not be able to warm physically, but he is able to satisfy his soul, since such a furnace looks very elegant, unusual, and uplifting. Decorative drywall fireplaces are much easier to manufacture and install than metal ones. There are no more technical issues here, but more creativity, imagination and creativity. This design allows you to translate into life any design ideas and creative impulses.
Drywall is very easy to install, so it is possible to take the fireplace in any shape.To create such beauty will require: sheets of drywall, metal profile, screws, knife, dowels, puncher, screwdriver. Holes for dowels are made in the wall, then a metal profile is fixed. On the finished frame is fixed drywall. Further, paints, various 3D stickers, toys, etc. are applied to the drywall.
A decorative homemade fireplace is usually tiled with a special glue tile. Other facing options are possible - artificial brick or stone, film. In the firebox have decorative firewood with LED lamps, which will long please their glowing glow. Decorative firewood with LEDs can be purchased at a specialty store in the city.
In addition to decorative firewood, they also use simulated fire. Such a fire can be obtained in several ways:
Such an imitation is not difficult to do. You need a hologram with a built-in flame effect. We embed this hologram in a decorative oven so that the edges of the hologram itself are not visible. For the best effect, we make muffled light in the room.
With the effect of illusion
This requires several mirrors to be installed in the fireplace. At different distances, these glass set at different angles. The image of the flame of fire is embedded in the middle of the furnace. For a more spectacular result, LEDs are used inside an artificial fireplace. Refraction of the light from the mirrors, the glow of the flame seems more voluminous.
At the bottom of the cardboard box, you can metal, put 3 ultrasonic mist generator. Attach a fan to the box. Pour water into the tank and put it on the generator. You will need more special lighting from RGB lamps, which give the effect of a burning flame.
Cold fire with a fan
You will need a cardboard or metal box, to which several triangular patches of fabric are glued. At the bottom of the box install the fan. In the corners of the box we install LEDs (red, yellow, blue) and optical filters. On the sides of the box install mirrors.
C using the liquid crystal screen
This fireplace will require an LCD screen of a size that fits in size for a future fireplace.Install the LCD screen in the frame of the fireplace and turn on the recording of the burning flame of fire.
From old unnecessary furniture
Surely in every house or apartment there is no longer necessary wardrobe, bedside table, etc. and throwing it away is a pity ... Boldly reach for it, you will get an excellent fireplace from the old cabinet. This will require: plywood sheets, screwdriver, acrylic paint, LED tape, putty, various decorative items.
Of these tools, you must build a box with a middle hole for the furnace. Door cabinet remove, they are no longer needed. At the bottom it is also possible to leave a small hole for storing decorative firewood.
When the design is ready, you can proceed to the design of the furnace. Decorate the firebox, putting decorative coal there and sticking LED strip around the perimeter. The result will be a wonderful homemade oven in the style of "Vintage".
From other materials
These furnaces can be built from various scrap materials, for example, from boxes, wood, paper, rods, artificial rattan, etc. The main thing is to make a sketch of the future design, carefully cut, securely fasten the parts together, and then firmly attach to the wall.A homemade decorative fireplace can simply be glued to the wall with a decorative stone or brick on a self-adhesive base. Such design will surely create a cozy atmosphere and comfort in the house.
If the house allows space, then there are such options: in different rooms to make and install different homemade fireplaces. For example, on the first floor install a metal homemade fireplace, or install a fireplace made of brick, and on the second floor install decorative stoves.
Do not forget about the permits for the installation of a "working" fireplace at home. But if you decided to install, for example, an improvised metal furnace, then you will have the following steps: first assess the technical condition of the house itself, then in the EMERCOM (fire protection) we get permission and their recommendations.
Only after a certain time, after the spent nerves and money, you may receive permission to install the fireplace. Cheaper and faster to build and put a homemade decorative fireplace.
