Mantels are an ideal focal point for spaces both large and small. Every project from gentle upgrades in a ranch to a full gut renovation in your townhouse can be beautified by adding a fireplace mantel to your interior design plan.
Today's design options highlighting fireplace mantels vary from traditional motifs to a mélange of styles. Picture distressed faux wood touches in a vaulted modern space. Or simple clean lines to contrast with formal furnishings. Modern mantels may be flanked by bold lithographs in Italian clip frames, large color photos of your exotic vacation or faux river stones.
The space beneath a mantel may also be used to add interest to a room, particularly if the traditional accessories such as wrought iron fire tools and stacks of logs are not part of your decorating plan. Consider large decorative pieces such as pottery in striking colors, ceiling panels or textured walls, such as faux sand or faux bamboo. Very simple changes can bring an inspired touch that will fit within just about any budget and save you the trouble of traveling half way around the world to finish your rooms!
Whether the walls or the floor becomes the focus, the mantel itself adds a richness and texture to every design possibility. By contrasting other interior details in the room, such as brightly painted, lacquered or wall-papered walls, what surrounds your mantels influences the mantel's look as much as what is displayed on it — if anything at all.
Whether adding a real or faux wood mantel, every product we offer is easy to install and a fine compliment to our design products. Our real wood mantels are a great match for all of our real wood and faux wood beam product lines. How you prep, paint, or stain them to compliment and create your interior's style is up to you. The stunning Arcadia line features elegant raised grain. Arcadia mantels are an excellent compliment to faux wood beams' raised grain, sandblasted, Woodland, Mesa,
and Windswept beams. Consider
an Arcadia mantel in your chic country French bedrooms, Federal
style great room, or turn-of-the-century parlor.
Equally beautiful and designed to compliment Timber, Rustic and Tahoe
faux wood beams, the Yosemite mantel
adds beauty and natural charm to the kitchen, New England inn and
any winter hideaway. Whether displaying your decoy collection, grandmother's
watercolors or the children's Christmas stockings, the Arcadia and
Yosemite mantels appeal year-round. They are ready to ship and arrive
unfinished. Both the Arcadia and Yosemite style are constructed
from hearty Douglas Fir pine trees.
