It may seem odd, but many people start thinking about their fireplaces during the summer time. That’s because they want to have their fireplace ready to enjoy when the cool and chilly winter months arrive. Now is the perfect time to start thinking about updating your fireplace mantel with a beautiful, elegant Cast Stone Mantel.
Our Cast Stone Fireplace Mantels are made from cast stone making them significantly less weight and easier to handle. The cast stone process involves the stone being set with a “thin cast” allowing it to maintain the look, feel and strength of real stone while remaining incredibly lightweight. Cast stone mantels are easier to install than larger solid stone mantels and include just as many options in terms of finish, color and overall style. And not to mention, they are significantly less expensive than solid stone.
The Chelsea, Claire and Seville cast stone mantel designs have stood apart in regard to sales, as some of our most popular. Each of these mantels are fire resistant and could be a perfect option to set off an electric or pre-existing wood or gas burning fireplace within your home. Although each of the designs are made through the same process and have many of the same qualities, there are differences within the overall designs and styles.
The Chelsea mantel offers a clean cut design making it a perfect addition to a contemporary home, while the Claire offers a ridged finish within the legwork. The ridged, scroll design of the mantel leg offers a great combination of both traditional and contemporary features. Finally, the Seville design is the most ornate of the three designs with its beautiful carvings and design elements along the legs and shelf of the mantel. Because it is so highly decorated, the mantel is reminiscent of a classical look and perfect for completing a formal family, sitting or dining room.
Each of these cast stone mantel designs can be custom ordered to fit your home decor and space. Because they are part of the cast stone mantel collection, the Chelsea, Claire and Seville designs come in natural or honed stone coloring. The honed collection offers a softer, smoother finish while the natural look is slightly rougher, although still just as beautiful. Cast Stone Samples can be requested if you would like to see the finishes and color in person.
All of these designs offer a distinct look that could complete any room within your home. Don’t wait until the middle of winter to realize your electric, wood, or gas burning fireplace could use a little “sprucing” up, call and order your cast stone mantel today.
