Mirrored Tile Mantelpiece - For the ultimate in sparkle you can tile your entire mantelpiece in mirrored tiles. Or a for somewhat subtler approach just cover the top of the mantel in the tiles. If you are covering the entire mantelpiece you will need such tiles plus adhesive. Measure the tiles and cut where needed with a glass cutter breaking the tiles carefully along the scored line. If you plan to only add mirrored tiles to the top of the mantel you could simply arrange several of them strategically to add sparkle without the need to use the adhesive. Either way your mantel will simply shine.
