Layered Fireplace Mantel Decorating Ideas For Living Rooms

Home decoration has some basic design elements and one of them is the layered fireplace mantel ideas. Fireplace addition serves as either decoration or energy saving in the room.

Layering is an important part of interior design since it provides perspective, and depth, to the space, and won’t bring a warm feeling. On these hot summer days, only the Southern Hemisphere has a chance to use the fireplace but it still touched my heart.

Who does not like the soft ambiance?

Type Of Fireplace Mantel Decorating

Before talking about the part of the fireplace, let me introduce you to the most common type of fireplace. 

Traditional: It works with wood inside the room. Pellets would be more sustainable for your choice but think about your budget first. 

Gas: The faux wooden logs have a great look and your firebox is always clean. you don’t need to swipe the ashes. 

Electrical: Heat convention is provided by pebble stones or fake wooden logs. 

Rustic fireplace mantels include gorgeous plants, tables, candlesticks, stunning mirrors, greenery, a blog, a stand, hanging, and sweet fireplaces. Brick mantel space to decorate with DIY for the house.

How To Layered Fireplace Mantel Ideas & Surrounds?

There are many different ways to make the layered fireplace

1. Angle, and lining for the pedestal legs and fire surround. 

2. Safer and also leveling give a great layer. They are also good for decorative purposes. To celebrate every season you have an extra lower shelf in front of your fireplace. 

3. The fireplace is usually built-in. The additional floating shelf is mounted to the chimney breast and it is called a layered mantel. 

The layered mantel also has accessories or art frames in front of the fireplace wall and they also give perspective to the room. 

4. Layered with an abstract, television, or built-in storage box: Mantel and/or facing are optional but chimney breast is a must.

The monotonous look would be broken by having any idea of layering in a layered fireplace.
