Create an inviting focal point in any room by bringing out the hidden potential and true beauty of your fireplace. A Fireplace Mantel upgrade or update isn’t hard to do and is an easy way to take advantage of the latest style trends.
Classic styles are almost always the most popular and are available in a wide variety of materials to suit most any home. Wood fireplace mantels offer great looks depending on the type of wood, the grain of the wood, and can be painted or stained to your specific color needs. These mantels are available in either mantel shelf or full mantel surround styles.
A Fireplace Mantel Shelf is a great way to instantly update a tired fireplace or add visual interest to a fireplace with no adornment. Their unique mounting system make them incredibly easy to install, giving you a great new look with very little effort.
Mantel surrounds, on the other hand, are perfect if you are trying to completely update your room décor. They are available in a variety of materials – wood, stone, or marble. Wood Mantels can be custom sized to fit almost any pre-existing fireplace. They can come either fully finished at the factory or unfinished to be painted or stained at the job site. Mantels Direct offers custom color matching where your mantel will arrive ready to install pre stained or painted to perfectly match your exiting room color.
Stone mantels are quickly becoming the strongest trend, and for good reason. You will be amazed at the variety of styles – from clean and simple lines, to classically ornate or modern and bold. Stone Mantels can also be customized to fit almost any fireplace size or shape. Elegant stone ages gracefully and will add beauty and value to your home for years to come.
For another option, adding an overmantel for height and visual interest is a unique way to finish out a fireplace. An overmantel is basically a mantel or additional framing over the lower mantel surround. A current trend is to incorporate a television to fit within the overmantel. There are several overmantel styles available in matching material to stone mantels. Almost any wood or stone mantel can have an overmantel created to match.
Make the most of your fireplace year round by adding decorative touches that draw the eye to one of the largest features in any room.
