Important features of your fireplace to be aware of when selecting a mantel:

  • The fireplace opening in relation to wood mantel legs and breast board.  Want to make sure wood is far enough away to avoid fire hazard.
  • Mantel sitting against stone or wall. Mounting issues as well as filler/scribe sizes are important.
  • Facing depth for mantel to wrap around fireplace and touch wall—will  affect shelf length and depth.
  • Length of hearth (stone/tile extending out from front of fireplace).  Mantel legs sit should sit on hearth
