Summer Ideas For Your Fireplace
Can you feel that? The abundant sunshine and the warm fresh air on the skin make you want to don some sunscreen and shades and hit the beautiful beaches along Tybee Island. While enjoying the great outdoors in the Central Savannah River Area (CSRA) and South Carolina Midlands, leave time for some family fun decorating your fireplace. Just because you’re not using the fireplace doesn’t mean it has to be hidden from sight. You can use the fireplace as a canvas for creating a charming, inviting, and bright space. Here are some of our favorite summer decorating ideas to help get your creative juices flowing:
Create a Beach Theme
Summer is also about carefree days at the beach, so why not bring that feeling to your fireplace? Minus the sand and surf, of course. Use seashells, driftwood, and other beachy relics you can find to decorate around the fireplace. You might even hang a nautical-themed print or painting above the mantel.
Bring the Outdoors Inside
Summer is all about fresh air and sunshine, so why not bring that vibe into your home? Use colorful flowers, green plants, and other natural elements to decorate your hearth. A few sprigs of lavender, a vase of peonies, or a succulent terrarium will elevate the elegance of your interior space.
Channel Your Inner Bohemian
Choose some bohemian-inspired fireplace decor for a more relaxed and carefree appeal. Use bright colors, ethnic patterns, and natural materials to create a stylish and inviting space. Lay out a few throw pillows, a colorful rug, and some candles will yield a high-five.
Scented Candles Set the Summer Mood
Scented candles are a simple yet elegant idea for decorating the fireplace in the summer. Add a vase of flowers and a framed photo to complete the look. You can also hang a mirror above the mantel to make the space feel larger.
No matter your style, there’s a summer decorating idea out there that’s perfect for you. Decorating the fireplace is also an excellent project for the family while the kids are out of school for the summer.
Schedule Your Summer Chimney Inspection
A chimney inspection conducted by a qualified professional is vital in preventing fires from improper maintenance. More than 25,000 chimney fires are reported in the US annually, according to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). The primary cause in most cases was failure to clean the chimney properly.
So, to ensure the safety of your home and family, use the slow summer season to schedule a professional chimney inspection and cleaning. Our trained experts specialize in removing harmful contaminants, including creosote and soot, both of which are byproducts of combustion.
