For many, nothing says "cozy" or "home" like a real wood-burning fireplace. But for many city dwellers, the closest they can come to such an amenity is a gas fireplace with gas logs. Gas logs are not actually made of wood but consist of ceramic. Homeowners use them when they have a gas fireplace, as such logs help them to create the look and atmosphere of a real fireplace. How you arrange them is key as their positioning needs to not impede or block the flow of gas; furthermore, proper positioning better simulates the look of a real fire.

Many city dwellers have to settle for gas logs on a gas fireplace.

Step 1

Select four medium-sized gas logs and arrange them in your fireplace in a perfect square formation. The ends of each log should touch the surrounding logs. Depending on the shape of your fireplace, the logs will either make a rectangle or square.

Step 2

Arrange the remaining logs in a tee-pee shape inside of the square or rectangle. The tee-pee should be sturdy but not look overly arranged or perfect.

Step 3

Check the position of all the logs. None of them should be obstructing the flow of gas. Adjust if necessary.
