Spring is the a perfect time to try new things. School is just about out for the summer, so you’ll have more time to get out and enjoy the great outdoors. Maybe you want to start a new workout program, taking advantage of the beautiful weather. Sometimes a few new pieces to your wardrobe can make you feel like you’re stepping out in style. Taking a bit of time to repaint some interior walls or adding a few new pictures can really change things up and make you feel good each time you step into your home. If you’re fortunate enough to own a fireplace, then a great way to give your room a bit of pizzazz is to add a new mantel. Whether you want traditional or contemporary, flashy or understated, there are many ideas you can use to make your fireplace a thing of beauty.

Ideas to Jazz up your Mantel

Changing the look of your mantel doesn’t necessarily mean changing the mantel itself. If you just want to do a quick change to brighten up your room, it can be as simple as adding some pictures in decorative frames, votive cups with colorful candles, or decorative boxes or plates. Or use decorative candlesticks and books to give the room a homey, welcoming appeal. But sometimes you’re going for something that will make a lasting difference. If that’s the case, you may want to look at replacing your mantel altogether.

Did you know that there are many styles and materials that you can use for your mantel? If you are looking for a classic, clean look, you might want to go with stone or marble. But there are more ideas out there, as well! If you want to go with a more rustic look, you might want to look at a railroad tie or even a log. These are items you might find yourself, but make sure to find pieces that are straight and true.

If you decide to go with a new mantel, there are many styles and colors to choose from. If you love to change the look of your room on a frequent basis by changing the wall color, you may want to choose a more neutral tone. Or if you want the mantel to be the main focus of the room, go for something bold and vibrant.
