The family is looking forward to having Fireplace Construction in Salt Lake City UT completed in their living room. The room is large enough so that installation will not be a problem, and the new feature will be ready in time for the holiday season. For this family, that starts with Halloween and doesn’t end until just after Valentine’s Day.
Decorating During the Holidays
A fireplace mantel is an ideal place for families to display their style throughout the year, but decorating during the holiday season can be especially fun. The mantel at Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s and Valentine’s Day can be decked out with the appropriate items. The family may even decide they want to continue the tradition all year round, coming up with ideas for St. Patrick’s Day, Easter, May Day, Independence Day and more.
Fireplace Construction in Salt Lake City UT can be done with metal, brick or stone, and the mantel can be made of those materials or wood. Wood also can be installed around the sides and top of the actual fireplace. Granite, slate, marble and fieldstone are possibilities. Shelving can be added above the mantel for additional decorative touches.
Technical and Artistic Considerations
Hiring a contractor such as Stone Mountain Castings & Design ensures that the work will be done according to code and that a certain level of artistry can be provided if the customer wants something really special. The homeowners must decide how large they want each part of the feature to be. A fireplace can be relatively small and tucked into one of the narrower walls in a room, or it can have a sprawling hearth that is the obvious focal point in this part of the house.
Fireplaces and the Weather
No matter how cold the weather gets outside, everyone will feel cozy and warm when gathered in the room where the fireplace is located. During the months when cold weather is rare in this region, the mantel can still be decorated with items associated with the Fourth of July and May Day. The handmade and store-bought decor creates a festive environment. Like us on Facebook.
