  • Style: Your fireplace mantel needs to be the focal point of the space, but it also must blend with the surrounding décor and other interiors of the space. There are various types of fireplace mantels that are available including rustic mantels, traditional mantels, contemporary mantels, and formal mantels. When choosing a mantel, you need to make sure that the style of your mantel matches the style of your home.
  • Wood: The wood species that you choose for your fireplace mantel hugely affects the final look of your mantel. Most people choose not to paint over the natural wood, so your choice of wood species will determine the color of the mantel. You should also choose the type of wood depending on the maximum weight the mantel will need to withstand.
  • Decorations: St. Charles Hardwoods offers a wide range of wood fireplace parts that can help you make your custom mantel more appealing. When you choose to design your mantel, you need to decide the columns, overlays, molding, surrounds, and shelves that you want to add to the basic design. You can also use our wood appliqués, rosettes, corbels, wood brackets, and more to make your mantel look more ornate and interesting. These parts and embellishments can be attached to wood mantels very easily and greatly enhance the custom look.
