Wood Fireplace Mantels – A Cozy Focal Point Element For The Living Room
A fireplace, no matter what type or design, will always be a focal point in the room. Fireplaces usually have a mantel which is basically a shelf. Originally, the mantel had the role of catching the smoke but it later became a decorative piece and doesn’t necessarily define the shelf above the fireplace but also the framework around it and can also include elaborate designs extending to the ceiling.
Reclaimed wood accent details and interior décor elements are quite versatile. For example, a reclaimed wood fireplace mantel can look very beautiful in a rustic décor but also in a breezy beach house interior or in a contemporary apartment.

Using wood logs to create fireplace mantels is a very interesting idea. The logs can be used either to create a frame around the fireplace or as suspended shelves, in which case they’ll have a strong impact on the décor and will stand out with their organic designs.
