Wood Fireplace Mantels
 

If you would like to bring more attention to your fireplace as an architectural feature of your home, consider installing a fireplace mantel.

Fireplace mantels cover the most important sides of a fireplace, the mantel, or the portion on top of the fireplace and the sidings to the right and left of the fireplace.  Complete fireplace mantels are coordinated to maximize their visual impact in a room.

Fireplace mantels are available in several eye-catching styles.  The facings on the mantels and sides might include floral swags with classical scrolls “supporting” the mantelpiece.  If you enjoy the ocean, you might enjoy a stylized shell decoration front and center beneath the mantelpiece with complimentary shell designs on the sides.  Regardless of the style that you choose, your room will have a completely different appearance after installing your complete fireplace mantel.

Fireplace mantels are available in different sizes to meet the sizes of today’s fireplaces.  You will want to make sure that you have enough mantel space to display all of your family treasures if you like using your mantel pieces for this very important purpose.

You can purchase your complete fireplace mantel ready to be finished and installed.  After installation, you will have a new atmosphere in your home.

Full Surround fireplace mantels

Full Surround fireplace mantels are a structure that completely surround the fireplace and can be as small or big as you would like. Full surround took on a new meaning in the 5th century, when builders would construct massive full surround fireplace mantels, the widest being 30 feet, with the flues reaching to a very high window above.

Fireplace Mantels

For hundreds of years, fireplace mantels have been an integral architectural piece that fits above a fireplace. The mantel is an ornamental facing around a fireplace; also called mantelpiece. In medieval times, it was built over a fireplace to catch the smoke, and at a later date, to the decorative framework, often carried up to the ceiling. For many centuries, mantels were the most ornamental and artistic piece of a room, but since fireplaces have grown smaller and modern methods of heating have been introduced, its artistic, as well as its practicality has grown less.
