Your fireplace has been warming your toes and your heart all winter, acting as the center piece of your room. But with spring here and fire season about over, what do you do with your fireplace? Here we’re sharing some tips for decorating a fireplace for spring and summer?

1. Fill the space with a Candelabra.

Candelabra come in a variety of sizes and designs. Pick your favorite style, load it with candles, and enjoy your fireplace all summer. To “spice” things up, try scented candles!

2. Use a Stainless Steel Fireback to reflect light.

Cast iron firebacks are available with a variety of designs. For a more contemporary look, a mirrored stainless steel fireback will reflect the colors of your room, filling your fireplace with the perfect accent colors. To really capture attention, combine a candelabra with a mirrored fireback. The fireback will reflect the light into the room, creating a warm glow.

3. Decorate it with stacked wood.

If your fireplace is especially dirty and sooty, you may want to clean it before decorating. Read our fireplace cleaning guide for helpful instructions.
