Fireplaces are an excellent addition to any living room. Having a well-decorated fireplace will light up any room, adding a focal point to focus on, especially on a cold winter day. To install a fireplace, people often need to make some minor changes and rearrangement of the furniture to make room for it. It’s essential to have a chimney if you want that classic old-style effect. However, if you don’t, you can still have a beautiful fireplace if you know how to decorate the surrounding space.
Mirrors are great for adding more space to a room. Homeowners who have small rooms often use mirrors as a way to make their living area look more spacious and welcoming. Did you know that it’s possible to complement your fireplace with a mirror display? The mirror will not only reflect the beautiful fire but also help amplify the light in the room. Make sure to choose a matching style which goes with your fireplace. The width shouldn’t be too wide or too narrow.
You usually can’t go wrong with paintings when it comes to decorating any room, not just the living room. A simple picture can instantly add some depth to a plain-looking room. Victorian and traditional paintings can work quite well for a room with classic decor. To emphasise the focal point of the artwork, owners can pivot recessed ceiling lights toward the picture.
If the owner is an artist himself, or at least he or she loves taking photos, why not display their own artwork in their own home? Printing digital images out will cost one less than buying a pricey painting, plus the photos add a more personal touch to the house. The images could be beautiful memories which remind the owner of his or her happy times. Imagine returning home after a long tiring day at work to see your happier self smiling at you. Doesn’t that feel good?
Chic Wall Clocks
If your room is still missing a proper clock to help people know the time, without having to check their phone now and then, why not decorate your fireplace with a stylish timepiece? These are undoubtedly very affordable and come in many shapes and styles. Again, depending on your current decoration, you have to find a matching style and colour, but that shouldn’t be difficult. Just make sure your clock is a joy to look at.
