How You Should Choose Your Fireplace Mantel
When thinking about fireplace remodels, it is important to try and have an overall plan for what you are trying to achieve with your entire room. In many cases, the fireplace mantel will be the centerpiece of your room, and it is important to know what to look for in a mantel.
Modern designs are becoming one of the more popular styles to pursue when choosing a mantel. This type of design stresses sleek lines, bold colors, and geometrical patterns. It can be as simple as a classy black marble square design, or it can be as avant-garde as a bright red triangular mantel. The key is how it relates to the rest of the room. Some people prefer to have a mantel blend in with the rest of the surroundings, but others want to make more of a statement with their mantel.
Maybe you are picking out a mantel for your cabin in the woods. In this case, it makes sense to go with more of a rustic style of fireplace mantel. Cast stone set in earth tones can really make your fireplace mantel and the rest of the room one with nature.
Subtle flourishes like carvings and exterior decorations can also go a long way in helping to customize the fireplace mantel to your exact needs. Try to think which style, color, texture, and shape make the most sense in your particular scenario. If you would like some professional assistance in making your decision, we can help.
