What To Do With Your Fireplace In Warm Weather

Just because winter is over doesn’t mean that your fireplace has to look dull and boring. There are many things you can do to enhance this natural focal point and make it the centerpiece of your living space in the summer. Here are five inspiring ideas to decorate your fireplace this summer that will help get your creative juices flowing.

Small Oriental Screen

Summer Decorative Ideas For FireplacesA decorative oriental screen can make your fireplace look more attractive in the summer when you’re not lighting a fire. These small screens are about three feet tall and have decorative canvas prints mounted on bamboo. They are available with many different colors, patterns, and images making it easy to find one that accentuates your home décor.

Flower Garden

An indoor flower garden is a colorful addition to any living space, especially with your fireplace as an impressive backdrop. Displaying flowers in clay pots gives the interior an authentic rustic appearance. There are also decorative planter boxes in different colors, shapes, and sizes that can be arranged for a modern look. Some of the popular indoor flowers include purple orchids, Chrysanthemums, African violets, and Bromeliads, to name a few.



Artwork Display

Decorative Ideas For Fireplaces

Another idea for decorating your fireplace is mounting a prized work of art or a favorite family portrait above your fireplace for everyone to see. You can hang a large piece of canvas art above the mantel or stagger three framed art pieces or photos in different sizes and shapes for an interesting artistic effect. A good rule of thumb is to use the colors in the artwork to complement your living space’s interior colors. You can’t go wrong with black and white images. It’s timeless, classy, and elegant.


Decorative Vases

Arranging two large decorative vases on either side of your fireplace is an elegant way to decorate your living space in the summer. They can stand alone or used in combination with an oriental screen and other decorations like artwork and flowers to create an Instagram friendly living space. Or, add a touch of glamour with a mirror hanging above the mantle. A mirror also creates the illusion of a bigger room, so it’s great for smaller spaces. You can use a traditional rectangular mirror to convey luxury, elegance, or a circular mirror for a more contemporary style.

Mount a TV Over the Fireplace

Mounting a Digital Television over the fireplace creates a centerpiece that brings the room to life in the summer, much like a roaring fire does in the winter. Mount the television about six to twelve inches above the mantle for optimum viewing. You can also connect the TV to your Wifi network and display your favorite images in a colorful slideshow that turns your tv into a digital art frame.

I wanted to give 5 stars but they are very busy which meant I had a good wait for both the inspection/cleaning, then for a quote on repairs and then for the repairs. Their prices seemed a little high to me but I have nothing to compare with as they were highly recommended by someone I trust and other companies had plenty of negatives reviews which kept me from getting additional quotes. I am happy with the work and they promptly returned to fix a mistake that had been made. Chris the inspector, Jennifer in the office, and Alex and his repair crew were all pleasant and took the time to answer all of my questions. Alex and his crew even took their shoes off (it was winter) before entering my house without even being asked! So if you are not in a rush and want to ensure you chimney is as safe as possible then I think you'll be happy with Black Moose.

After a recent sweep of our chimney, it was discovered that our flue tiles were cracked. Black Moose techs were hard working, detail oriented and professional! Nice jobs guys! See you next year for my cleaning!

Excellent I highly recommend Black Moose Chimney and Stove; Kelly and Liam are awesome, they did a great job. Extremely professional, arrived early, went through everything with a fine tooth comb ensuring pellet stove was thoroughly cleaned. They also were respectful of my home, conscientious and cleaned up after themselves. Made sure stove worked prior to leaving and told me to call promptly if anything came up afterward. Will definitely use them again.

We've had Black Moose clean our chimney for a number of years.But recently, we had an emergency situation at our home involving our chimney & oil furnace flue, which was caked full of soot from a malfunctioning furnace. They came & cleaned out both flues in no time, even going up on the roof with snow on it! They cleaned up after their work in the interior rooms where the oil furnace and the woodstove are located. Great work. Reasonable prices. Very nice people. You can't go wrong with Black Moose.

Goods: The technicians know their business, very efficient in cleaning/inspection along with cleaning up after the 'dirty work'.Others: Communications could be more effective. Despite early coordination about scope of work (multiple flues within same chimney) the estimate provided did not reflect this and the final invoice was significantly more than the estimate provided.Quote for follow-on chimney relining was significantly more than that offered by other companies in the area (and far more than neighbors experienced for similar work accomplished by other companies)
