Stylish firewood racks can be a great way to add more flair to your fireplace decor. Many styles match your fireplace’s size, shape, and color. Some even have hooks for holding fireplace tools. Whether you choose to hang them above or below the firebox, these racks will add a touch of style to your fireplace area. A firewood rack made of quality wrought iron will add both function and style to your fireplace area.

Stylish firewood racks match the fireplace in terms of shape, size and color

Stylish firewood racks can add a rustic, traditional or farmhouse look to your fireplace. Depending on the material, you can choose one that is made from handwoven baskets, metal or wood. The leather wood holders can also feature a compartment to hold fireplace matches. There are a wide variety of stylish firewood racks to choose from, so you can find the perfect match for your fireplace.

Liven Up Your Fireplace Decor with a Stylish Firewood Rack

A firewood rack has two distinct functions: storage and display. You can either use it as a fireplace or a shelf or cart to store your wood. The firewood rack also serves as a place to place a log or a bundle of wood. Firewood racks can match the look of your fireplace or your other decor. A stylish rack will not take up a lot of space.

Ceramic tiles brighten up the area around a fireplace

There are many options for tiles around a fireplace, from a simple tile border to a gorgeous focal point. To choose the right tiles for this area, you must decide what the overall look and feel of the room will be. Color, style, and material will all be influenced by the end result. Consider your budget before choosing your tiles. Then, choose the type of material that will best compliment the overall look.

Once you have chosen a material for your fireplace surround, you can start to install the tiles. Tiles for this area are available as individual pieces or sheets. Copper is generally used for a more vintage feel, while stainless steel and aluminum can look like any material. Tiles can be used on top of bricks, so make sure to remove the mantel first. You can also use a thinset covering to fill in the grout lines. Allow the thinset to set overnight. Once your tiles are ready, you must mark the center of the opening of the firebox, as this is where you will be installing the tiles. A plumb line should extend from this center point, so that the tile pattern will be balanced.

Adding a shelf mantel to a fireplace

Adding a shelf mantel to your fireplace is a relatively easy project if you have access to a hammer, a drill, and some wood glue. Before you begin installing the mantel, make sure to mark the location of the support rods on the wall and prepare them by drilling into the backboard of the beam. Once the screws and nails are in place, use a level to make sure the pieces of the mantel are level and flush against the wall. Afterwards, take a moment to admire the finished project and think about where you’ll place a picture on it.

You can start by installing the mantel shelf yourself, or you can hire a handyman to do it for you. If the mantel shelf is made from heavy wood, you can use extra bolts to secure it in place. You may need an extra set of hands to help you lift the mantel onto the bolts and push them in place. Afterward, you may need additional shelf brackets for heavy items.

Adding a fireplace screen

Although it’s a necessity for most homes, a fireplace screen can also look beautiful and complement the rest of the decor in the room. EBTH shares a quick and easy project on its blog to turn an unused or cheap fireplace screen into a beautiful one that matches the rest of the room. Not only will the project save you money, but it will also add a personal touch to your living room.

Before you begin shopping for a fireplace screen, consider the size of the opening in your fireplace. Measure the space on all sides, and add at least ten to twelve inches for the height and width of your fireplace. You can also make the measurements yourself, as websites have a “shop by size” option. Single-panel screens are usually the easiest to fit, and they produce a sleek, linear appearance. Multi-panel screens have more panels, but are more difficult to measure, so you will need to make sure you choose one that is smaller than your fireplace’s opening. Additionally, some screens come with doors. Some are freestanding, while others are built-in and fit right on the fireplace.
