I was hoping to get some other reader info and input on which fireplace logs would look best in my house. I was looking for a fake fireplace log rather than a normal wood burning log obviously and I don’t know where to start my search.
I found what I thought was a pretty good youtube video the other day and wanted to share it with you guys as well, since you probably are looking for a fake fireplace log as well as I.
I did ask my local Lowes store which logs last longer than others and they said that a Blueflame log seems to last longer and look more realistic than other brands. I hope so, because the Blueflame brand is more expensive than others.
One thing I was told to look for was the end of the log, and make sure the end of the log was not white in color. I did not think that would be a big deal because it would evenutally turn black, but from what I was told if its white now it will continue to look white, which is not natural looking.
If you have any comments or suggestions for other readers please feel free to add your input to this blog. My hope is that over time others chime in here and add their pictures and videos etc.
I did a test last weekend. I had a few friends come over to my house and I asked them if the fire I had in my fireplace was real or not…..they all said, “looks real to me” hahahahah, I totally fooled them It was a fake fire place log. I positioned the logs just right and added just enough of the small pebble rock at the base to make it look real. The trick is to make it kinda messy looking, not like its picture perfect because a real log will burn down and break up as it burns.
