Layered Fireplace Mantel Decorating Ideas With Living Rooms
Home decoration has some basic design elements and one of them is the layered fireplace mantel ideas. Fireplace addition serves either decoration or energy saving in the room. Some layered fireplace is used in the living room, entertainment room, master bedroom, kitchen, or in the master bathroom.
Layering is an important part of interior design since it provides perspective, depth, and the most important feeling of living. Without layering, the emptiness of the space 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 around the fireplace while kindled flames are dancing inside the firebox?

Utterly impressive, enhancing the living room’s sleek and elegant style. This electrical fireplace is built-in and recessed the wall. Wall art frame and fireplace frame are made of the same Cambria engineered stone and they are embellishing the slate-covered wall. Open shelves have contrasted with the layered fireplace and high ceilings are a bonus. Two thumbs up fireplace design.

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 or coal and pellet but your design would be tolerable for carbon monoxide 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.
Part Of The Fireplace Mantel Decor Ideas
The next educational session would be how to layered the fireplace. Moreover, it is better to have a little information about the part of the fireplace.
All above-indicated fireplaces have mostly these specifications.
Mantle: Main heat insulation case or jacket in the fireplace, the upper part of the fireplace and can be used as a shelf
Facing or Breast of Fireplace: It supports the mantle and legs of the fireplace.
Pedestal legs or columns (if it is a masonry fireplace): They will be connected to the facing and mantle.
Fire surround (if classical or gas fireplace is in use ): The high-quality bricks, porcelain tiles, marble, granite, quartz and engineered other stones, french limestone, stained concrete, precast concrete, natural slates, travertine are materials not affected by the high heat and at the same time being very decorative.
Firebox: Where the combustion process is taking place
Fireplace screen (optional): If you need to use the fireplace for heating purposes, a screen is a must. There are glass, mesh, metal screen, and foldable fireplace door panels which may be counted as the options.
Heart (optional in masonry fireplace ): The safety barrier to keep your home from the fire and usually it is made of fireproof and durable materials like granite, concrete, stone, brick, cement.
Chimney breast: Traditional name is still valid. The chimney breast is the name of the wall of the fireplace. The electric fireplace also has a wall under the same name.
How To Layered Fireplace Mantel Ideas & Surrounds?
There are many different ways to make the layered fireplace
1. Framed the pedestal legs and fireplace surround: If there is a texture, dimension, angle, and lining for the pedestal legs and fire surround, it is called a framed layered fireplace.
2. Raised hearth: Raised heart layered fireplaces are good to keep home safer and also leveling gives 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. Layered mantle: The fireplace is usually built-in. There is no fire surround, chimney breast substitutes for it. The additional floating shelf is mounted to the chimney breast and it is called a layered mantle.
Layered mantle 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 over the fireplace: Mantle 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.
