Common makes of fireplace mantels include wood, marble and stone. If you want your mantel to blend in perfectly, these are the things you need to consider:
When it comes to selecting a fireplace mantel, you definitely have choices. Today, mantels come in many different types of material, shapes, sizes, and construction. Modern design has pushed the boundaries of fireplace mantel design farther than ever before.
Usually wooden surrounds can be supplied in Pine, Oak, Mahogany, Cherry, Maple, Beech, Butternut, Choi, Poplar, Basswood...in fact, pretty much any wood you specify. Natural wood is the best choice whether you want an ornate carved fireplace surround or something simple and colonial in style.
Finally, should you decide to go with wood for the fireplace surround, it is also important to determine what type of wood would be most appropriate. If you plan on staining the wood and want to bring out the natural beauty, going with oak or birch are the best bets. On the other hand, if you want a simple look and intend to paint the mantel you could go with a fireplace surround constructed of MDF.
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.
Apart from its other benefits, a fireplace surround is also important for the safety it provides. The surround can provide additional layers of fire protection, making the fireplace less dangerous and more enjoyable.
