It’s More Than Just a Fireplace
While there are no two words about electric fireplaces being a primary heating source, it also serves the purpose of a functional, decorative piece in your home. There are dozens of styles to choose from. For instance, dark or light wood, glossy, matte — no matter what look you want, you will find an electric fireplace matching your home aesthetics perfectly.

Fortunately, you can remodel the wall by having an electric fireplace with mantel with cost-effective decor ideas. Now, that’s more than just perfect. Right? If you are also looking to give an appealing look to the area around the wall-mounted fireplace, the following tricks might help you with that.
Let’s get started!
Stick to One Color Family
If you are unable to find the type of decor that you’d like to display on your mantle, use the following cardinal rule.
“Stick to one color.”
It will lift off the burden of picking out a curated collection of items. By sticking to a single color, you can find one type of item, such as a collection of vases, to give your home the desired upgrade.
Introduce A Zen Feeling With Natural Elements
Everyone is so stressed with work, family, and other responsibilities. Creating a space that’s not only pleasing to the eyes but also relaxes your mind is something one must look for. These days you can add a natural state to your interiors. You can do the same for remodeling your fireplace mantel. For instance, you can add flowers, potted plants (succulents) to bring natural appeal to your room.
Combine The Shelf With The Mantel
You can add shelves that coordinate well with your fireplace mantel. This is especially a great addition if you are an avid book reader. You can place your book above, and when the time comes, just switch on your electric fireplace and enjoy the warmth and your favorite book simultaneously.
Add Some Lustre With Metal Decors
Adding a large mirror and pairing it with Gold candlesticks is one of the best ideas to upgrade your home decor without investing much. You can also choose to mix metals according to the type of your electric fireplace for a more modern look.
Remodeling ideas are many. But your choice will depend on the type of fireplace you have. For instance, you can upgrade your fireplace by simply showing off your collection or adding layered art to the mantle. You can also choose vintage decor ideas to match your style.
All these remodeling options will give the desired “Oomph” to your home. And the best part is none of these options are costly. So, are you ready to try any of the ideas shared?
