It doesn’t always have to be lit: How to make your fireplace a focal point even during the warmer months

Think back to the last time you used your fireplace. Chances are that you won’t be using your fireplace much this summer, just like you didn’t use it last summer or even the one before. Instead of wasting precious space, utilize your fireplace to add additional flair to your home. Transform it from a source of warmth to the center of attention with these ideas from the Furniture Fair Design Team:

Add a pop of color: Brighten up your space and add summer vibes by replacing your standard logs with colorful ones.

Bring the beach to you: Grab those seashells that you’ve collected from the summer’s beach trips and create a mantle display. Small shells and sea glass can be stored in mason jars to create a more manicured look.

Channel your green thumb: Make your home feel more elegant by adding plants to your mantle. Add variety by throwing in draping plants such as a Pothos or a Boston Fern.

Create a miniature art display: Not sure where to store your latest flea-market finds? Your fireplace just became the answer.

Use it for storage: Get your candles, books, blankets, and other items off the floor and shelves by using your fireplace as additional storage space.

Cover up: Don’t want to deal with it? Block off the fireplace with a divider or screen that fits in with the rest of the room.

Mix and match a few of these ideas to create a look that works for your home’s aesthetic. Happy decorating!
