Decorate a deep corner fireplace mantel
I’ll start this post by saying I’ve never had to decorate a room with a corner fireplace, but based on my experience with floor plans, I can only imagine that it’s tricky. Fireplaces are usually thought of as the natural focal point of a room that everything else has to be positioned around. But, if it’s in the corner, I think it automatically loses it’s position as king (or queen) of the room.
Using a larger piece of furniture—or even art—on another wall not only creates balance but takes some of the pressure off of the fireplace having to be the main attraction. You could do this with bookshelves, an armoire or even a large mirror (see first photo in the post).
(Btw, it doesn’t bother me to mostly block the fireplace if you don’t use it on a regular basis.)
