The weather outside is frightful, but the fire (in your fireplace) is so delightful.
If you have the privilege of having a fireplace, you’re part of the minority. Just 41% of homes created in 2018 featured them.
The problem is, although your fire is so delightful, your fireplace beam mantel could use a little bit of help.
Fortunately, styling your wood beam fireplace mantel doesn’t have to be complicated. Here are a few tips for enhancing the look of a fireplace mantel wood beam this year.
Let’s get started!
Decorate Your Fireplace Beam Mantel with Objects with Different Heights
One of the most captivating ways to style your fireplace beam mantel is to decorate it with different-height items.
For instance, crown your mantel with picture frames, vases, and candlesticks of various heights to generate visual interest. The eyes of the viewer will instantly be drawn to each project because they are not like one another.
Pillar candles are especially ideal to use as decor on a fireplace mantel. You can even use a pile of books to elevate a figurine or a candle holder as well.
Go Green with Your Decorations
Style your mantel with some greenery as well. Attractive additions include the following:
- Faux topiaries
- Pampas grass
- Dried flowers
Greenery has a way of adding life to any space, and the spaces above fireplaces are no exception. However, note that any dried plant is flammable, so be sure to keep it far enough away from the open flame in your fireplace.
Decorate with One Large Piece
You can also create a powerful focal point above your fireplace mantel simply by handing a large piece in this area.
For instance, place a TV, a large painting, or a circular mirror above your mantel. Make sure that there is still plenty of space to style your mantel with tinier decorative items as well.
Choose Odd Numbers for Your Decor Pieces
Finally, consider sprucing up the look of your fireplace mantel by decorating using odd numbers.
For instance, place three decor items together on one side of the mantel, and repeat this on the other side. The items could be three vases made from glass. Ideally, the vases should be of varying widths and heights to produce the effect you desire.
This design trick is perfect for creating a mantelpiece that is visually stimulating.
