Considerations For Mantel Ideas & Design

As you dream up ways to incorporate faux wood mantels in your home decor, keep the following design factors in mind.


Where you choose to place the mantel will depend greatly on the size and material of your fireplace. For a stacked stone fireplace, the mantel can be used as a great way to add dimension and division to the design.

For modern fireplaces, faux wood mantels can add texture, warmth and depth to cooler tones and tiling.

Size & Shape

To make the most out of faux wood mantel, focus on shapes and sizes. Thicker beams have a better place on larger fireplaces, while thinner beams do more justice in smaller spaces.


With faux wood mantles, the possibilities are endless. You don’t have to stick with an unstained finish. Consider painting or staining the beams to match your furnishings, or even coordinate with the tiling or stone on your fireplace.
