With Christmas around the corner you are probably busy decorating your home for the season and and gift purchasing. Don’t forget about your fireplace when it comes to holiday decorating and your loved one’s fireplace when it comes to gift giving ideas.
There are many ways to decorate your fireplace year round and during the holiday seasons. A quick search on Google, Pinterest, or Houzz will provide you with oodles of ideas.
To briefly summarize, for year round decor consider fireplace accessories.
- Log holders.
- Steam humidifiers.
- Fireplace doors or screens for the wood burners but can add a sense of realism to a gas fireplace also.
Anything adding a layer of style works great as a gift.
If you have a mantle, showcase your prized possessions throughout the year, whether it be artwork, family photos, vases or even candles and change it up with the addition of holiday decor.
Keep in mind that operating fireplaces produce a lot of heat, so keep your flammable decor at an appropriate safe distance according the fireplace manufacturer’s suggested clearances that can be found in the owner’s manual. Beware, not everything you see on-line or in magazines for holiday decor, work with operating fireplaces and pose serious safety concerns. Rethink hanging those stockings on the mantle if you plan on using your fireplace.
