Characteristics of Contemporary Fireplace Mantels

Characteristics of Comtemporary Fireplace MantelsA fireplace is the perfect opportunity to create a central focus in a room. When you think of fireplace mantels, you probably imagine traditional mantels, such as the geometric designs of British Colonial, Art Deco mantels, or the rich details of French country mantels. However, if your room features modern furnishings, a contemporary fireplace mantel can emphasize the look you are trying to achieve. SoCal Fireplace Mantels is your preferred source of fireplace surrounds and mantels.

Contemporary fireplace mantels have several notable characteristics that help to set them apart from more traditional mantels. These features include clean lines and simple designs that allow the materials to shine through. For example, the dramatic colors of rich green marble or crimson marble can become lost when the mantel features too many lines or details. The goal of a contemporary design is to reduce the visual elements to make these stunning materials the primary focus.
