Are you stumped about how to decorate the space above a corner fireplace mantel? Although the idea of a fireplace in the corner of a room may sound awkward, it can make a lot of sense. A corner fireplace does not take up much space and can easily become a focal point in your room. Corner mantels can be built along both walls (so it forms a corner itself) or fitted across the two walls. If you have a deep corner fireplace mantel, you will have even more surface area to play with. 

To make your fireplace look warm and inviting, consider stringing garland or string lights across the mantel, adding a bevy of candlesticks to each end, or centering the mantel with a mirror perched in the middle. For something more practical, look at mounting a flat panel TV above the fireplace. Here are a few corner fireplace mantels that will have you totally impressed.
