What to do with an unused fireplace?

As you may have heard, Montreal adopted a by-law regarding solid-fuel-burning appliances (ie. fireplaces) this summer. Owners of such appliances have until December 22, 2015 to declare the device (you can do so here). The use of a fireplace during smog warnings is now prohibited. As of October 1, 2018, those devices not recognized by the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) emitting less than 2.5g/hr of fine particles into the atmosphere are banned. 

So what to do with your fireplace? There are many ways to style fireplaces without burning wood.
