Mantel/Fireplace Design Ideas

The fireplace serves as a striking focal point of the home. As a decorative and functional space in home design, beam mantels can add a rustic, vintage, classic or modern look based on the texture and wood finish you choose. Add an element of depth and texture to your mantel with faux wood beams. Since we utilize a box-beam construction, our mantels are hollow which makes them ideal to cover existing structures.

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. Placement - 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 ones are better suited to larger fireplaces, while thinner beams do more justice in smaller spaces. Color - With faux wood mantles, the possibilities are endless. You don’t have to stick with a one of our factory-stained finishes (even though they are gorgeous). Consider painting or staining the beams to match your furnishings, or even coordinate with the tiling or stone on your fireplace. You’ll find a guide on finishing yourself in our instructions area.
