The fact that fireplaces come in many different heights and widths often leads to one of the most common mistakes made when buying a fireplace surround - failure to measure the fireplace in advance. While some people possess the ability to take a good look at a mantel and know whether or not it is the right size, most of us do not possess that gift. You'd save yourself some time and frustration if you measure the fireplace, including the dimensions of the hearth. This will help you to focus on fire place mantels that are the right proportion for your fireplace.
Keep in mind is that the fireplace mantle must go well with other architectural elements in the room. Installing a small and relatively plain mantle, when the room includes elements like chair railing or ornate baseboards, might not be a good idea. At the same time, a mantle featuring carved bunches of cherries would look out of place in a contemporary room. Smart thing to do is to go for surrounds that will enhance what you have going on, without causing the room to seem out of balance.
