Custom Fireplace Mantels

Custom Fireplace Mantels - What You Should Know

Fireplace mantels are arguably the centerpiece of any fireplace in your home. The mantel is used to store antiques, collectibles, or other personal memorabilia that you would like to share with friends and family. With today's fireplaces, many people opt for a custom fireplace mantel. Here's a look at some of the things you will want to know about a mantel before making any decisions.

One of the first things you will want to decide on is what type of style you want in a custom fireplace mantel. Do you want a contemporary look? Antique look?

Next, you will want to decide on the type of material to use in your fireplace mantel. You can use wood, stone, metal, and even concrete if you wish.

For most homeowners who have a new fireplace, they choose either a wood or stone fireplace mantel. Stone is especially popular because of its uniqueness and class. Not only can you create a one of a kind look with your mantel, but it will also last forever. Stone is simply the most durable material for any fireplace.

If you are considering a stone fireplace mantel, you may want to take a look at marble and granite in addition to natural stones. Just keep in mind that marble can become quite expensive.

For a wood fireplace mantel you can choose to use everything from pine to oak, cherry, walnut and many others. The advantage here is in reduced costs. You can also paint the wood to give it a custom look that matches your rooms color scheme as well.

The charm and elegance that a custom fireplace mantel adds to your home is unmatched. You can find all types of designs and styles, as well as other fireplace accessories on the internet. There are many websites that offer a wide variety of options and online catalogs to browse through.
