For a more decorative option, try framing your TV. You’ll still want to add things to the mantel itself, but be sure they are small and don’t clutter the space or block the screen.
When you shop for furniture, consider its visual weight. This concept refers to the perceived heaviness of an object based on size, color and design. Pick out pieces that have a lightweight appearance, as heavier ones will seem to constrict a space for pale colors over darker ones, and select pieces that have legs while avoiding those that are boxy. Glass coffee or end tables will take up less visual space than wooden ones because you can see through them. Any furnishings that don’t obstruct views will make an area seem more open.
Can’t decide on a piece of artwork? Try a mirror instead. You can find them in nearly any shape and size, whether you’d prefer a statement mirror or two matching ones that flank the mantel. A mirror also helps to brighten your living room by reflecting light from a window. You can either hang it or set it on the mantel and lean it against the wall.
