There’s no cheaper and easier way to make a dramatic difference in a room than by applying a fresh coat of colour. Whether you’re feeling brave and opt to add in a feature wall – a chimney breast is a great place to do this, by the way – or you just want to apply another coat of the same colour, you’ll be surprised how much of a difference a new coat of paint will make.
Feature fireplaces make ideal focal points in rooms. Adding an oak beam to your fireplace is a really simple way to spruce up your living space.
All of our (with the exception of our 19cm x 14cm beam) are supplied with simple-to-install fixing brackets, suited to the size of your oak beam. You’ll also be supplied with easy-to-follow fitting instructions. Plus, you can always get in touch with us if you have any questions at all.
Just remember that if you are buying your oak beam to install at a later date, make sure to unpack it so that it can breathe. Air-dried oak beams will still have a small amount of moisture in the middle and it’s important that this moisture has somewhere to go.
Not only does adding a natural wood fireplace mantel to any room make it feel really cozy, it’s also the perfect place to create a seasonal display.
Embellish your oak mantel with decorations to suit the time of year. In spring, for example, we love to put various sized vases of tulips and daffodils onto our oak beams, punctuated with pastel-coloured candles.
If you’re hosting a post-lockdown lunch, you could hang some bunting in spring colours from your oak fireplace mantel, to make the room feel extra festive.
Again, your floating shelves can be decorated to match the season. Adding a few houseplants to your oak floating shelves is a great way to bring the outside in and will cheer you up even on those more wet and windy spring days we get in Britain.
As always, we’d love to see your post-lockdown room revamp, so please keep those photos coming in!
