If you have a fireplace in your home, it is usually the standout piece in the room that draws your attention immediately. This is why it is essential to have a well-decorated mantel to compliment the fireplace and create a cohesive look.

The biggest challenge when decorating your mantel is finding balance in your display items. You want to ensure your layout doesn’t feel cluttered or overwhelming because that can take away from the fireplace itself.

Go Big

When you decide to start decorating your mantel, starting with one large piece, such as a framed picture or mirror, can be helpful as this gives you a center point to work off of, and it will draw the eye in immediately to the fireplace and the display. Take the time to secure the item to the wall, so it doesn’t shift or fall.

Consider Greenery

A live or faux plant on the fireplace can bring a refreshing feel to your mantel display, and it provides a nice pop of color which is great if you’re working with lots of neutrals and whites. Consider something simple, like branches in a clear vase or try out fresh flowers that are rotated weekly.

Bring In Accents

Once you have the more significant part of your design done, you’ll need to fill some of the gaps with smaller decor pieces. These items can be personal memorabilia, candles, vases or anything you’re proud to display. Consider three or four items and determine where they fit best once your display is complete.
