How to Decorate a Mantle

You have an old-world charm in your sitting room, replete with a cozy armchair, hardwood cabinets and a fireplace. You must feel like having done impeccably well with your décor aesthetics. However, you can always do a bit more by decorating your fireplace mantle in an unconventional way. Here are a few tricks you may try.

Flowers and Vases

Flowers not only make your room beauteous, they lend rare fragrance to the insides. You can choose that special China Ming vase and decorate your mantle ornately. You can also place chosen carnations carefully. However, you will have to labor daily for creating such natural effect.

Paintings and Murals

Smart life-size portraits or a Picasso looks just right while relaxing by your ingle grate. You may also have relief or murals embedded in the wall space over your mantle. Just keep the colors and textures light.

A Large Wall Clock

One often reminisces or goes nostalgic by the fireplace. An ancient wall clock with large dials and metronome effect helps you go back in time. It also provides fullness to your minimal room.

Bohemian Thought-Process

You can stylize an abacus over the mantle. You may also go for hand made birds wrought at different heights with metal strings. You may also allow your child to show his artistic skills over the mantle and leave it as such.

Christmas Stockings

Christmas is most compatible with fireplace, as Santa Claus is known to leave your gifts through the chimney. You can have your mantle budded with red stockings and mistletoe imitation. You may also place well-packed parcels not containing anything.

Prized Books

You may have collected certain masterpiece books in your life. You may place them in befitting manner over your mantelpiece with rubber-coin protection beneath. These will ensure poise while sitting along.

Bonsai Plant-Pots

You can try a Banyan or Mango at two ends of your mantle. Bonsai plants take less space and give an essence of a miniature world. You will feel like sitting amid greenery.

Halloween Stuff

You may place skulls or a particular dark portrait to match credence with night time. It will also encourage your kids to sleep early. You may improvise through headless statues or images of bleeding hands.


Belgian glass mirrors placed strategically over your mantle really provides an apt frame. It also canvases the outlook of your entire sitting room.

Fiberglass Specials

There are some interesting handiworks done in metal or fiberglass. They have their own charm; at day or night, and lend modernity to this ancient structure.

Some Tips

  • Create mantelpiece in hardwood with fine red varnish. This color generally matches all textures.
  • If ingle-grate is log or wood based, you should be careful about placing inflammable articles above it
  • Go for minimalism and shy away from overdoing the effect over your mantle. The space is meant for your comfort.
  • You should remember to use 1/2 feet space over the mantle for decorations, leaving the other half empty.
  • If it is an electrical fireplace, make sure that mantle decorations do not come in way of connections and wiring.
