Who says you need a fireplace to enjoy a mantel shelf in your home? Floating shelves have been trending in modern and contemporary home projects lately, and with their design flexibility and functionality, it’s easy to see why. Mantel shelves can be used in literally any part of the home for a unique storage or display solution, and we’ve lined up some of our favorite ideas just for you.
One of our customers opted to use a mantel shelf above their doorway, creating a dramatic focal point in the room.
In the entryway
It’s the first stop for many guests to your home and more often than not the space can seem cluttered. Bulky coat stands may seem like a good idea in winter, but with warmer weather upon us, they just start to take up space. The Concorde fireplace mantel shelf’s slim, streamline shape could easily accent your entryway while saving precious space at the same time. With multiple wood options available for painting, it could also add a pop of color to your décor, ensuring your home really does leave a lasting first impression.
In the study
To utilize your natural wall textures without covering it up with a bulky freestanding bookshelf, why not make your own bookshelf with a mantel shelf? Create a relaxing, eclectic vibe by alternating various mantel shelves along your accent wall, then use one or two cozy armchairs to create a beautiful and unique reading nook.
In the bedroom
Create a statement piece in your bedroom with a mantel shelf made to match the preexisting furniture. Forego end tables and add a contemporary edge to your favorite space by hanging them adjacent to the bed or instead of a headboard. You could also opt to place them anywhere in the room you want to display pictures or your favorite trinkets.
In the bathroom
Tired of those bulky cabinets taking up precious space in your bathroom? Consider adding a mantel shelf instead. Lightweight and versatile, our natural cast stone fireplace mantel shelves are available in several different shades so you can match your décor in style. Once you’ve hung the shelf, place spare towels, wicker baskets, or other design elements on top. Storing your spare toiletries has never been so stylish.
In the dining room
Thanks to our custom options, you can order a mantel shelf in just about any length. Take advantage of this by adding a unique wood shelf, like the Cascade, in your dining room area. Use the extra space to store plates, vases, or family heirlooms for a modern take on a curio cabinet.
