Questions to Ask About Mantels

A fireplace or insert can be wonderful for enjoying the beauty and warmth of a fire in the wintertime. If you are looking for a decorative mantel here are some questions to ask before you purchase or hire a contractor.

  • What type of material and style should I get?
    Depending on the look you are going for, someone hired to custom design a mantel for your fireplace will be able to recommend the type of material. For example, if you want a more traditional look, you might want to use hand carved wood. For a more modern look you could consider marble or some type of cast stone. You may also want to match your existing hearth, or consider changing out the portion of the hearth that extends beyond the opening.

  • Do you want to install an insert and design a piece around that?
    If you are looking for greater heating efficiency, you might want to consider installing an insert, which is a metal stove that slides into the opening and that will burn wood. The chimney must be of adequate height and should be inspected and cleaned prior to installation. Alternatively, an electric stove does not burn any combustible material and so does not require a chimney.

  • What is the price for the materials and installation?
    If you elect to purchase a standard size and install the piece yourself the price will mainly depend on the type and quality of material. Also remember that you can mix materials by for example making the shelf of a different type of material than the legs, and you can also use a veneer.

    Mantels are manufactured out of a wide variety of materials to create beautiful, traditional looks as well as modern and one-of-a-kind designs. Businesses specializing in fire places and mantels are experienced in helping home and business owners find the perfect fire place mantel to complement their favorite rooms. Mantels were originally designed to support the heavy stone or brick used in the construction of the fireplace or chimney. With the evolution of home construction, mantels today are more commonly used as a shelf or shelves for decoration and display. With this in mind, interior designers and homeowners create handcrafted, beautiful mantels out of stone, wood and other materials.

    To add to the overall look of the fire place and mantel, decorative mouldings and facings may be added and installed by a professional or homeowner as a home improvement project. Mouldings are often made out of oak or another type of wood and can be used to trim the fire place shelf or to frame the fire place. Home improvement and specialty fire place stores often stock different types of fire places and wood stoves, including corner fire places, which can be used to maximize space or when remodeling a home. These stores also may sell cabinets and fire place and hearth accessories to keep the area clean and beautiful.

    Once the fire place is complete and the mantel is installed, the mantel can be used to display items including photos, artwork, flowers, clocks and treasured antiques. Whether a homeowner is looking for a standard or handcrafted mantel for his or her fire place, a business specializing in fire places and fire place accessories can provide all the help and assistance needed.
