Using Stone Veneer to Prepare for the Holidays

Having a stone veneer fireplace for the holidays is a great choice, and you’ll likely want to spruce it up to truly get the holiday spirit going. While it may feel overwhelming trying to come up with ideas, COVIS has a few tips to get you started on a gorgeous holiday display:

Choose a Theme

What kind of holiday look are you going for? Traditional Christmas, Hanukkah, or Kwanzaa? Winter wonderland? Rustic charm? Once you have a theme in mind, you can start to choose decorations that match.

Add Greenery

Greenery is a great way to add some natural beauty to your fireplace décor. Garlands, wreaths, and branches are the best choices for creating a festive look. Ensure that the greenery is fire-resistant if it will be surrounding your hearth. However, never use fresh greenery around your fireplace. Opt for fire-resistant artificial greenery, pine needles, or holly to create your festive look.

Add Lights

Lights are also essential to holiday décor. You can add string lights, twinkle lights, or even candles to add life to your fireplace. Just remember to keep any candles away from fresh greenery.

Add Stockings and Other Ornaments

Stockings are always a favorite for any holiday fireplace, regardless of personal beliefs. You can hang them from the mantel or from hooks on the wall. Ornaments are also a great way to add some personal flair to your fireplace décor, whether that be with family heirlooms, store-bought ornaments, or even handmade ornaments.

Additional Tips:

Here are a few additional tips to keep in mind while creating a festive mantle and space everyone will gravitate towards this year:

  • Use a variety of textures and materials to create a visually appealing display.
  • Don’t be afraid to mix and match different styles and colors!
  • Use natural elements, such as pinecones, berries, and holly, to add a touch of the outdoors to your décor.
  • Keep the scale of your decorations in mind. You don’t want your decorations to overwhelm your fireplace.
  • Most importantly, have fun and be creative!

No matter what style you choose, decorating your interior stone veneer fireplace for the holidays is a great way to add some festive cheer to your home. If you don’t already have stone veneer installed, contact an expert at COVIS to discuss options for your fireplace and mantle!
