Make Over Your Mantel: 7 Hot Ideas

By Tiffany Adams


A warm fire may be the main attraction on a cold winter's day, but during the remainder of the year your mantel gets a lot of attention. Make sure its style is a reflection of you as well as the rest of your home. Choose from current trends, including built-in storage, minimalist floating shelves, or natural materials, to make a statement with your fireplace's mantel.

Molding Surround

If you're looking to add character, architectural detailing is just the place to start. Whether you're reviving an older home or want to give a newly constructed house a timeless flair, molding can work wonders. In this living room, a white surround features columns with recessed panels as well as decorative star molding pieces along the top. The custom look pairs nicely with the room's wainscoting.
