Spring is only a couple of months away and we are sure you can’t wait for the days to get lighter and the weather to warm up. Spring is the perfect time to refresh your home's décor and add a light and colour to your interior. Having a seasonal theme on your mantelpiece is the perfect way to ensure that your living room reflects the current season and is renewed on a regular basis. We have got some great ideas for the forthcoming season to bring a little spring into your home.

When it comes to creating a beautiful and well-balanced design on your mantel, use the triangle principle. Firstly, place a large piece like a mirror or framed picture on the wall in the centre of the mantel; this will then create the focal point, and provide good grounding for the rest of the display.

Secondly, choose another focal point to go at one side of the mirror or picture, this should have a little less height; we suggest a vase or candlestick/holder. On the other side of the mantel, place an object again with a different height, doing this should make the display have a sense of movement.

Finally, in the centre of your mantel, in front of the mirror or picture, add some smaller picture frames and ornaments; this will add a sense of depth to the display are provide variety in terms of colour. These spring décor designs can really show off your fireplace in all its glory. If you are looking for a new fireplace, take a look at our great range of electric fires we have for sale.
