Add some charm with a Mantelpiece

A fireplace can be the focal point of any room, and a fireplace with an exquisite mantelpiece really adds the wow factor. Not just used for displaying photographs and other decorative items, a mantelpiece adds distinctive character and charm to a living space.

House of Home can connect you to a great range of mantelpieces to make your fireplace stand out – available to purchase online or in store from a number of stockists across Australia.

Mantelpieces have become more ornamental over time – starting out as basic wooden framing to now incorporating detailed embellishments and intricately carved designs.

A mantelpiece wraps around an entire fireplace - typically using framing on the sides (these are known as skirts), a shelf on the top (called a mantel shelf) and tiled area underneath. As there are many measurements to consider, it’s important to double check these before purchasing.

Choose the right style mantelpiece for your home

There are a number of mantelpiece styles to suit any living space, and the materials used are also an important factor when picking the right style.

Timber mantelpieces are a popular and timeless option and suit just about any fireplace. Other materials such as stone are used to achieve a more contemporary look and work well in light airy spaces.

If you already have timber finishing in your home, try to stick with something similar for your mantelpiece to ensure a consistent aesthetic.
