Realm of Design has always believed that a Fireplace Mantel should be the center point of a room and which can increase your home value. And according to Remodeling Magazine, creating a striking fireplace mantel is important because it adds not only focus to a room but also adds value to your home. Interior Designer David Kean stated “an engaging fireplace and mantel can provide grandeur for an otherwise ho-hum room or it can “take an already fabulous room over the top.” You can be artistic and creative when designing your fireplace mantel, however, it is advised to stay within the style of your architecture.
So not only does adding an exquisite fireplace mantel to a room set your house apart from the others in your neighborhood, but it is especially important if you are looking to resell your home. Consequently, consider adding a new fireplace mantel or upgrading your old one because not only do you get a beautiful centerpiece but it can potentially make you money as well.
