The fireplace is one of the areas of your home where you usually sit in front and cuddle up during winter. It is one of the coziest areas in your house where you and your loved ones can take time to enjoy each other’s company.
By decorating your fireplace mantel, you can make this room cozier and more beautiful. You do not have to spend much on this. Just use your creativity and resourcefulness and it is all set. There are many ways to design your mantel. Here are some tips that you can follow.
1. Small art collection gallery
If you are into paintings or sculptures, then why not create your mini art gallery in your fireplace area? You can hang paintings and portraits on the walls around. Then, on the mantel, you can place your favorite sculptures or mini paintings. You can also hang the best painting on the wall above, or if the mantel is narrow, you can use it as an easel to your favorite painting.
2. Simply floral
Do you want a garden scenery in your fireplace area? Or do you simply love flowers? Well, you can place vases of flowers on the mantel. Fill the space with different colored roses, tulips, or your favorite daisies. If you want to save effort and money from buying fresh flowers from time to time, you can use artificial ones instead.
3. Library extension
If you have bookshelves around or beside your hearth, then why not use its mantel as an extension for your library. You can place some books on it along with some decors like candles, a vase, or a family picture. You can also put a small shelf on it where a few books can be placed.
4. Classic ambiance
Getting that simple yet sophisticated atmosphere can be accomplished by going for classic designs. This is perfect if you have a white coloured fireplace mantel which is illuminated with architectural accents. Place decors with classic colours like white or earth-toned hues. Use ornaments like candles, topiaries, and urns. The goal here is to create that harmonious, smooth, balance for an elegant ambiance.
5. Season themed
For a playful scenery, you can change the decorations of your mantel depending on the occasion. You can use different ornaments that represent the season. For instance, you can put wreaths, a miniature Santa Claus, and snowflakes for Christmas. If it is Valentine’s, then you can fill the spot with hearts, flowers, and everything red. You can also extend your decoration to the whole room or house.
