Fireplace Mantel Holiday Decoration Tips

The holidays are here, and for many families, that means it’s one of the best times of year to gather around the fireplace and enjoy each other’s company. At Uintah Fireplace and Design, we have all the contemporary fireplace materials and services you need to both keep the family warm and create a perfect atmosphere centerpiece in your home.

We also specialize in beautiful mantels, from classic styles to more modern ones. For many people, the mantel is the real draw of the holiday season – it offers opportunities to hang stockings, bring new designs and otherwise get creative as part of your festivities. What are a few important trends and themes to keep an eye on while decorating your holiday mantel this season?


The first big area to think about if you’re overhauling your mantel for the holidays is the color scheme you’ll use. This mostly comes down to your own personal preference, but a very popular theme for Christmas and other holidays is the white-on-white design that’s accented by various splashes of color – often rose gold or other drape colors. White is the perfect holiday color, helping blend everything together and allowing you to accent it however you like.

Many homeowners look for a more earthy, farmhouse-style look by infusing natural greens and browns with that same white background. This brings a warm, personal vibe that makes everyone in the room feel right at home.

Additional Textures

Once you’ve defined your basic colors,  you can move into several additional texture areas as well. Common items here for those who celebrate Christmas may include stockings, presents or tree-related items, and there are plenty of other choices as well.

Some homeowners look to bundles of wood or other similarly earthy designs. Others bring contrasts to their primary colors through pillows, greenery, fur or various other materials. There are almost unlimited potential ideas at your disposal here if you’re willing to get creative, and many of them cost little to virtually nothing.

Accessories and Add-Ons

Finally, it’s time to perfect the little details that will make or break your mantel and fireplace designs for the holiday season. We’re talking here about filling the extra space, both with practical items like candles or lights and with decorative pieces – these can go on the mantel or in several other areas, as long as they maintain the overall accent.

As we noted, presents are a prominent addition to any design if you’re a family celebrating Christmas. Some families place stools or other small floor items around to fill the space, plus warm lights to really set the mood.
