It is very important to be aware of a fireplace mantel and what it is and how it can help you in the larger context of your home and home décor. Make no mistake, a fireplace mantel is decidedly a subsection of home décor but at the same time a fireplace mantel is also something that people will be very interested in for its functional capabilities as well in some cases. Understanding the décor abilities (otherwise known as the visual abilities) of a fireplace mantel is as important as understanding the functional abilities of it and where those two concepts have a nexus in certain types of fireplace mantels will be easier for you to understand when you understand the two concepts separately.
When a fireplace mantel has visual aspects about it that people look at with interest, the point that most people will try to make is that a fireplace mantel is definitely something that people will look at in the context of being excellent things; the are status symbols that people like to adorn their fireplace with specifically because of the excellence that people associate with a fireplace mantel that looks good. This is an important point to keep in mind because it happens to be the leading reason for people purchasing visual fireplace mantel units.
There are also functional aspects to a fireplace mantel that people are interested in and those functional aspects are such that people can actually not only get the good looking fireplace mantel, but they can also get some use out of it. Many people use the fireplace mantel as a base for another construction and that just basically serves as the most functional piece in the room itself. Bookshelves are the most popular thing to do this with and you will see them in many different houses you visit with a fireplace mantel in them.
