CandlesFireplace Mantel Ideas for Your Home
In the olden medieval days, the fireplace mantel also known as chimneypiece, was originally meant to catch the smoke from the hearth or fireplace. Eventually, it evolved into an art form, and sometimes elaborate mantels (which would extend even to the ceiling) became the focal point of a room. Over the years, as modern heating technologies, people didn't need fireplaces anymore and they became purely ornamental. It is essential then, for any fireplace because now they are just for designs.
The next step is considering the design of the accent piece. For large brick fireplaces chunky wooden mantels work very well, while for a small fireplace in a bedroom something more demure will be appropriate. You will also need to decide if you want scrollwork or other elements included in the overall design, or if clean and simple lines are a better choice.How to Choose a Good Wood Fireplace Surround
Technically, a fireplace surround is an architectural element which surrounds a fireplace, providing aesthetic and safety benefits. A fireplace with a fireplace surround can add a bit of romance to any room.
Finally, should you decide to go with wood for the fireplace surround, it is also important to determine what type of wood would be most appropriate. If you plan on staining the wood and want to bring out the natural beauty, going with oak or birch are the best bets. On the other hand, if you want a simple look and intend to paint the mantel you could go with a fireplace surround constructed of MDF.

As far as function and decor go, a really easy way to dive in is with a good comforter set. There are lots of nice ones out there, and sets come with matching accessories that make coordinating the decor really easy. If you find a bedding set you like, you can easily pick out towels and maybe curtains to match. Some sets have sheets included, but even if they don't, it's simple to find basic sheets that go with the colors in your comforter set.

You can do an amazing decorating job just by using color. Don't be afraid to use color. Not good with decorating color schemes? Neither am I; however I can pick out at least one color I like. So how do you choose a color? Browse through decorating books, visit a department store home furnishings department or go to your paint store and pick out some paint strips that you like. Paint strips give you great ideas of complementary colors, too!
A focal point can be anything from the front door itself, a beautiful wreath on your front door or perhaps a wicker table, chairs, and colorful table cloth. Or, it could be beautiful hanging baskets, a work of art (painting or sculpture), or perhaps a favorite rocker or swing. Above all, make sure your "focal point" is obvious and it should be a great conversation starter.
