Fireplace Mantle Decorating Ideas

The fireplace may be the focus of your room and attracts a great deal of attention. If you have a fireplace you could have decorated the mantle with a loadful of your respective favorite decoration pieces till the dust collects and also the whole place looks quite overdone and eventually neglected. Instead of cluttering the best place, you can opt for a combination of selective pieces which go with the room dcor, and you will always keep rotating the displays regularly.

While seeking the decoration pieces, make sure they are sized appropriately, neither too big nor too small for that mantle. Match them to the room dcor and also the color scheme of the space so that they don’t look out of place. Make sure these products are non-inflammable should your fireplace is functional. Avoid books, kerosene oil lamps, wooden dcor, etc. You can display a centerpiece on the mantel, which may function as the focus with the decoration scheme. This could be a piece of art, flowers in a very vases or perhaps a mirror.

For developing a balance, arrange equally sized products in small groups. Don’t put them all in a single row; instead go for that three dimensional look. This can be done by placing the centerpiece toward the leading and other items toward the end in the mantle. Or arrange them in groups of threes in the form of your triangle. Display framed photos, decorative vases and pots, ceramics, royal bone china plates, etc. You can dress up your mantel using a mantel runner and decorate it seasonally with lights and glittery baubels during the winter holidays.
