Create 3 layers of décor for your mantel. Always includes layers 1 and 2. Layer 3 is optional depending on your decorating style.
Choose a large object that will be the focal point of the mantel for the center area, such as a mirror, artwork or even a flat screen TV.
Choose objects for the right and left sides of Layer 1 that will add width and visual weight to the overall design.
