Modern mantels have many different looks. The common design features include clean lines, geometric shapes, and an absence of details such as carvings or elaborate details. The mantels can have a regular, square, or rectangular shape, or they can include a more distinctive shape such as a triangular or curved mantel.

In addition to an eclectic look, modern mantels can be made from a number of different materials. Natural stones with pure colors and few internal variations or patterns, such as pure white marble, are popular options. However, cast stone is also commonly chosen because it allows the designer to control the color as well as the shape and smoothness of the resulting stone.
