Embellishing your fireplace mantel is a great thing to do because it adds a special quality to the room. There are a variety of easy and creative themes that you can use to decorate your fireplace mantel. The best time to decorate your fireplace mantel is during the Christmas holidays. Christmas is the time when many of us like to decorate as much as we can. When planning your Christmas mantel decorations, there are few things you have to consider.
Don’t paint the fireplace interior with bright colors; instead paint the interior with black fireplace paint. This can cover any ugly stains and make the opening look like new. The color you choose could conceivably clash with your holiday decorations, even if the paint goes with your room during the rest of the year.
Don’t paint the mantel with bright holiday colors. If you do want to paint, check to see if the color competes with the general look of your fireplace and also the room.
The fireplace is the focus of a room and attracts a lot of attention. You may want to decorate the fireplace mantel with many of your favorite holiday decoration pieces, the whole place can look quite overdone and eventually neglected. Instead of cluttering your fireplace, you can go for a combination of selective pieces that go with the room décor, and you can always rotate pieces through your display regularly.
