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.
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.
