Make A Statement: Fireplace Mantels in Interior Design

Make A Statement: Fireplace Mantels in Interior Design
A fireplace warms not just our bodies, but our souls; they are synonymous with the comforts of home, a place where friends and families gather, books are read, thoughts are collected, and naps are taken. A fireplace is also an opportunity to express individuality, make a statement, and further the design of a space.

Pair Your Fireplace With A Mantel To Match 

A fireplace has four main components: the hearth, firebox, mantel, and lower surround, the most prominent of which is the mantle, the uppermost horizontal shelf above the firebox. Mantels are a timeless focal point alone or accessorized with the right decor. But however you choose to present your fireplace, there are a few considerations to keep in mind, including the depth of the fireplace and mantel.

At MATERIAL Bespoke Stone + Tile, our in-house experts are here to guide you through the process. We customize mantels that can mirror the size, style, and functionality of your existing fireplace. During a consultation, we ensure the mantel is compatible with the fireplace design, type (gas or wood-burning), and existing firebox before customizing your bespoke solution.

Captivating Designer Trends

Rich natural stone offers a perfect blend of texture, color, and warmth. Adoquin, Limestone, Marble, and Travertine are all great options for mantels. Each naturally varies in color, veining, and pattern, making every mantle  a one-of-a-kind design element. Take a cue from the designer highlights below, and draw inspiration for your contemporary fireplace mantel design.
