Wood Fireplace Mantel

The Beauty And Quality Of Wood Fireplace Mantels

Wood fireplace mantels catch everyone's eye when entering a room. You immediately see the fireplace, but the fireplace mantel is what keeps your attention. I consider the mantel to be the centerpiece of the room.

The fireplace mantel is where most people place their treasured mementos. It gives off the family history so to speak. Another aspect of a wood fireplace mantel is that it accentuates the charm and beauty of the other furniture in the room. It gives the room a visual that is hard to describe.

Having your own wood fireplace mantel is not difficult. In fact, you can install one yourself if you are any kind of do it yourselfer.

Do you have carpentry skills? If so, you may want to make your own custom wood fireplace mantel.

One thing I would highly recommend when looking for what type of wood you would like for your fireplace mantel is to use oak. There are so many benefits with oak. It is strong and durable, as well as extremely versatile. It goes with any room decor. Oak can bring out the warmth and beauty of any fireplace and fireplace surround.

Keep in mind that oak is not inexpensive. A good oak fireplace mantel can run anywhere from $1,000 and up. But, oak will give you a quality that will last a lifetime.

Regardless of which type of wood fireplace mantel you choose, safety has to be a priority. Wood is combustible, so you'll need to check your fire safety code before installation. You want to make sure it is mounted above your fireplace at the correct height, and that it's secured properly.

There is no other wood fireplace mantel that compares to oak. If you're looking to build a showpiece that will last for future generations to come, and oak fireplace mantel is the way to go.
