However, after a lot of usage they might seem a little tired or needing a little love. We have a few tips and tricks to how to bring your fireplace back to life.
White Wash –
A lick of paint is always a winner. Weather your fireplace is an old 80s brick, or a newer contemporary plated floating fireplace, a simple lick of white paint can clean it up beautifully.
Master the Mantle –
You can buy ready-made mantles that fit most fireplaces these days. Early Settler have a gorgeous selection, but always locally in Brisbane, Restoration Station have a beautiful customisable range.
Frame your Masterpiece –
Framing your fireplace with either chests of drawers or cabinetry can really finish the space. It gives you the space to add a gorgeous lamp or personalise the space with trinkets, meaningful pieces and photos.
Hang it up – So what do you hang over your mantle? Its going to be a statement. So a beautiful mirror, a stunning photograph or an amazing artwork would be perfect. Once you have created your focal point above, you can group some beautiful pieces on the mantle. Don’t forget to add a little life. Some gorgeous greenery or a posy of flowers.
