Together with my husband, we always imagined how a fireplace mantel would look in our home. We loved their elegant and, at the same time, powerful appearance that dominates the whole room, no matter how large it is. As a matter of fact, the larger the room, the more powerful the fireplace looks. Since we were living in a larger house, we had to carefully plan our investments in its interior and exterior decoration. We recently were finally able to afford ourselves to make this dream of ours come true.
You can only imagine how excited we were when we started looking through the large offer of fireplace mantels. We thought we knew everything there is about them, but when we started searching for ideas on the internet, we found out there were a lot of different aspects that needed to be considered before we can make the final decision and buy our fireplace mantel.
The style was one of the things we knew ahead. We know there are different design styles inspired by different historic periods and the fireplace mantels used in those times, but we wanted a simple and traditional one for our home. It will provide extra comfort to the whole living room ambiance, since it is one very large room and anything that can enhance the comfort element is very welcomed. Thus the choice of the material from which the fireplace mantel will be made of was easy and logical. Wood would best suit the traditional design style.
Fireplace mantels were previously used to protect the smoke from spreading throughout the room and the whole house. Now, this often is not the case. We, for example, have an electric fireplace (Click Here), and our fireplace mantel is not used for its primary purpose, but for its appearance and importance as decoration element that brings traditional elegance and serves as a focal point of the whole interior decoration.
