You need to follow some easy ways to decorate fireplace mantels and shelves in home just in case some special event is coming and you have not searched online to find some decor idea.
decoration with mirror
These days, many home decorators are decorating fireplace mantels with big mirror in the middle. The mirror reflects the light in the room, for instance if there is a dropping pendant light in the middle of the room, the beams would spread in the entire room after reflecting through the mirror. This can make the room setting more attractive and more compelling.
One mirror in the center is good enough. The rest of the place can be beautified by using paintings, frames, and some art work. Don’t put everything on the same place- it will look like you have overdone the decor. Arrange some accessories beside the mantel as well so that it can make a nice impression that each nook of the room has been carefully designed with a plan.
decoration with flowers and pots
When nothing comes handy at all, you have one very nice option for decoration and it’s bouquet of flowers and potpourris that exude fumes when the fire burns. Nobody would ever recommend you to use flammable air sprays in the area where the fire burns in the grate, this would be very risky for you to even keep such liquid nearby that area. Make sure to keep alcoholic products/drinks away as well, they are combustible. What you can do more is use real flowers in light shades such as sun flowers, caca lilies, and something that blossomed in the season to add colorfulness to the room. Everyone would love sitting in the well-scented room where flowers are coherent reminiscent of true beauty of nature.
decoration with picture or paintings
Another way is putting or decorating large picture over the mantels, to pair it, put some small paintings in line, they should be of the same size. If you love artwork on canvas or posters, you can set them there.
You might have saved some paintings which contain photos of your family- you might have captured the best moments while you were at beach or in a party, laughing and sharing good time, why not use a frame for everything and hang it on the wall? The pictures will be a reminder of how beautiful the old day were and how much pleasant every moment was when you were together on a particular place.
Since home is home when you have a family- it’s a good idea to use your memories in the right way, put them on the show so that everyone can see how ideal you all are together.
