Flat-screen TVs have made their way to our mantels, and they’re probably here to stay. If you’re planning to put your TV over your mantel, then mounting it straight to the wall is an aesthetically clean way to do so. If you can, mount it flush with the wall so it looks less bulky. Alternatively, you can conceal it behind a cabinet.
Whether you’re a fine-art connoisseur or just like gazing at your favorite painting, an art display can be a wonderful addition atop your mantel. You can go for a trendy gallery wall, either hung above the mantel or sitting atop it. Alternatively, you can make a statement with a single large piece of art that reflects your tastes.
