Why An Oak Floating Mantel Would Make The Perfect 2020 Father’s Day Gift
by Freddie Armstrong
We know that an oak floating mantels may not be the usual first choice Father’s Day present. However, buying an oak floating mantel shelf for your dad may actually be the best Father’s Day gift he’s ever had.
Oak floating mantels are ideal lockdown Father’s Day gifts
Even though lockdown rules are beginning to ease and we’re all allowed a little more freedom, many of us are still spending more time at home than ever before.
Purchasing a present that your dad can enjoy, while sitting on the sofa cradling a cup of tea (or a couple of cans of beer), is the ideal option during these difficult times. Plus, he can partake in a little bit of simple DIY to put the beam up. Dad heaven.
You’re getting a gift that will last
When you buy an oak floating mantel shelf, you know that you are acquiring an item that will stand the test of time.
Oak is a tough, durable wood, which can last for hundreds of years. Indeed, oak is so strong it has been used to build everything from houses to ships.
Instead of getting your dad a gift that will be forgotten or lost in a few months or years, by buying an oak floating mantel, you are giving him something that he can admire and enjoy for many years to come. And all from the comfort of his favourite seat. Win, win.
Oak floating mantel shelves are the perfect place to create a Father’s Day display
If you want to do something extra special for your dad next week, why not send him a few items to put on his oak mantel once it’s installed?
Framed pictures of family, for example, look great on oak floating mantel shelves. And receiving a selection of family pics during a time when many of us are feeling a little isolated, is a really special treat.
A little pile of books can also look great on an oak floating mantel, so if your dad is an avid reader, these could be a great addition to the oak beam, too.
Pick an oak floating mantel that’s perfect for your dad
We have a wide range of oak floating mantel shelves to suit every style. If you’re looking for a more traditional look, the ‘aged’ oak beam works well in both modern and traditional homes.
Our ‘shaped’ beam has a more modern finish, with the gently-shaped bottom edge giving the appearance of a natural-edged beam.
If you’re not sure which mantel to go for, our ‘classic’ beam is a good all-rounder.
