It may only be the middle of November but, before long, we’ll be sipping mulled wine and eating mince pies, while cosying up in front of a roaring fire. This means that ordering your solid oak mantel in the next few weeks is essential, if you want it to arrive in time for Christmas Eve.

If you would like your fireplace to be the centre of your Christmas celebrations this year, an oak mantel is a must-have item. Here’s why…

A decorated solid oak mantel makes the perfect focal point

Christmas is the time when we’re allowed to go crazy with the decorations. Less is certainly not more and the odd garland of garish tinsel is a must.

Having a focal point in the room helps to draw the eye to one place, rather than that overwhelming feeling you get when a room is so full, you don’t know where to look.

A solid oak mantel is the perfect place to put your stamp on this year’s seasonal style. Keep an eye out for our next blog. We’ll let you in on some top tips and tricks to help create stunning seasonal displays on your oak beam.

Buy yourself a Christmas present that will last for many years to come

More of us are becoming aware of how our buying habits are impacting the environment. One-use or short-life presents or decorations are becoming a thing of the past.

Oak has been used throughout history to build everything from houses to boats. This extremely hard-wearing wood should last for many, many years to come. This makes a fireplace beam something that will probably outlive all of us.

So if you want to spend your hard-earned cash on one thing for your house this Christmas, make it a solid oak mantel to go above your fireplace.

An oak beam will actually save you money at Christmas time…

Spend to save, I’ve heard it all before,we hear you say. But bear with us.

As well as the presents and food, a large chunk of our Christmas budget is blown going out for many evenings of parties and drinks. This leaves us feeling exhausted and broke.

While we’re not saying you should go all ‘bah humbug’ and avoid all the festivities, being selective about the parties you attend will not only benefit your liver, but also your wallet.

Having a beautifully decorated oak fireplace beam in your house makes cosying up in front of the fire much more attractive than heading out for yet another glass of Prosecco.

Order before it’s too late…

Last order date for our solid oak beams will be around the 5th December this year – so don’t hang around!
