Keep in mind is that the fireplace mantle must go well with other architectural elements in the room. Installing a small and relatively plain mantle, when the room includes elements like chair railing or ornate baseboards, might not be a good idea. At the same time, a mantle featuring carved bunches of cherries would look out of place in a contemporary room. Smart thing to do is to go for surrounds that will enhance what you have going on, without causing the room to seem out of balance.
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.
The size of your fireplace: This is probably the most crucial element you need to keep in mind when browsing fireplace mantel ideas and possibilities. You want to measure all dimensions of your fireplace and have them on-hand. The last thing you want to do is guess on the size - you might end up with a mantel that's too short or too tall.
Get rid of your insecurity if you're afraid of installing or replacing a freestanding electric fireplace, the task does not require as much work as you may be thinking. To achieve your goal and get on the cutting edge, it may begin with the single step of purchasing a fireplace mantel. A mantel will give your fireplace a finished polished look, you can even use a fireplace mantel as decor in areas where you don't have a fireplace. And if you don't desire to have a fireplace built, consider an electric fireplace, they are portable and can be moved into any room you choose.
As part of your definite plan for carrying out your desire for great fireplace decorating, place a grouping of floral plates on your mantel. Keep your plan in action, clean out the ashes in your fireplace and fill your firebox with a large artificial fern or a basket of colorful flowers. You know what you want and it is up to you to engage your plans, place twigs in tall vases and place on each on each side of the fireplace mantel. Step forward and ensure that you use the right glass fireplace screen or screen they can do wonders for fireplace decorating.

Making a basement area family-friendly may be a challenge with some basements, but it can be done. When my stepson purchased his home, the cellar was disgusting. It was a dirty pit, dark and dismal with only an area carved out for a washer and dryer. He's lived there more than 20 years now, and over that time he worked at transforming the living space into something truly delightful. There's room for his daughter to have friends over, an extra bathroom, and well-equipped home workshop. He started with nothing but unused space and worked slowly as he could afford to, and the transformation is amazing. If he can adapt his basement for his family's use, so can you!

This is one of the types of garage shelving arrangements used in many places where there is not much space even for a car. There's the advantage of taking your shelving high and wide in which case you will still have access to space on the garage floor. This garage storage shelving can allow you to hold bins where you keep such things as light bulbs, tools, seasonal clothing and shoes. The entire garage floor space can still be used by your car and other items like scooters, push mowers, bicycles and other things you may deem fit to store in your garage.
