Easy Christmas Fireplace Decor Ideas To Inspire
Make A Statement With A Granite Fireplace
A granite fireplace offers many benefits and is much desired both during holidays and throughout the year. For instance, it looks beautiful and is scratch-resistant, long-lasting, and adds value to your home. It is also highly heat-resistant, meaning that your family can use it during Christmas festivities or daily use.
Granite fireplace surrounds enhance the beauty and elegance of your room and, indeed, your entire house. This inviting and cozy place is perfect for a get-together, especially when nights get cold and the holiday celebrations reach their peak.
Coordinate Your Fireplace With Your Christmas Tree
If you have selected a specific Christmas tree theme, make sure to extend it to your fireplace. For instance, if gold is the main colour of your tree’s decorations, use a similar colour for your fireplace and its surrounding area. Stack up beautiful gold-coloured Christmas baubles as well as ornaments on the hearth and hang golden stockings. This kind of monochromatic colour scheme looks modern yet beautiful.
Go Unconventional With Your Fireplace
There is no strict rule that fireplace Christmas decorations have to be traditional. Even a non-traditional colour like pink can add a fun and youthful vibe to your home. Let your fireplace shine by keeping other decorations plain and simple. You may also use pink stockings, garlands, or other flowery decorations.
Embrace Some Rustic Christmas Charm
Do you have a rustic-style fireplace? Use it for exclusive Christmas decorative pieces like putting skies or snowshoes above the mantel. Or surround it with greenery as well as vintage stockings for a nice Christmas fireplace display.
Incorporate Antiques Into Your Fireplace Decorations
Christmas calls for adding beautiful antiques to your fireplace decoration. One smart and easy trick is to use a big antique toy such as a sled or rocking horse as the centerpiece. Incorporate other classic Christmas objects into the display, such as candy jars or garlands.
Choose A Glowing Fireplace
Hang a festive red wreath above your mantel, and pile up plenty of wood on and around the fireplace. Also, put up lanterns as well as candles of different shapes and sizes. You may also want to use tiny twinkle lights. Once the candles are lit, the whole fireplace will glow with a pleasant light.
Choose A Victorian Christmas Theme
Victorian decorations have an old-fashioned charm and ornate beauty, so feel free to adorn your fireplace in this particular style. Keep a pink poinsettia on its hearth and hang antique lace from its mantel. Add beads, flowers, or other baubles to your fireplace decorations, including ribbons and bows for a unique antique look.
Adopt A Natural Christmas Fireplace Decoration
The best way to have a natural Christmas decoration for your house and fireplace is to keep birch logs of diverse lengths inside the firebox. Surround them with Christmas wreaths and green plants and keep baskets of kindling nearby. Place embroidered stockings on the fireplace for a stunning display.
Choose A Blue & White Christmas Theme For Your Fireplace
