A contemporary home decorating scheme focuses on straight lines, simplistic features and little details. In addition, modern homes focus on bold statement pieces and strong contrasting colors. A fireplace is the best statement piece for a modern home, but large ornamental fireplaces are often viewed as “too” traditional or bulky. To help you kick start your modern décor here’s a look at some contemporary mantels from Mantels Direct.
Mantels come in many materials: marble, cast stone and several different types of woods, and it can be hard to keep them straight. We’re here to help make the decision profess easier on you. We have narrowed it down to light, dark and something in-between so you can simply select an area that best describes your personal taste. Here are some of the most popular picks to help match your home décor.
With either book-top or side shelving cabinet surrounds, your fireplace will easily become a unique piece of furniture. A mantel surround does more than add additional shelving for a fireplace, though; it can also create an interesting focal point. Best of all, the mantel surrounds are available for both corner and wall fireplace units and can be used for electric, gas or wood fireplaces. We have compiled some of our most asked questions to help guide you to the decision that is best for you.
So, you have ordered the mantel and chosen the perfect fireplace insert for your home, but every time you look at the fireplace mantel you can’t shake the feeling that you’re missing something. What could it be? The answer is a simple and common one. In the rush to make the fireplace as perfect as possible for the home, many homeowners forget to add the small, homey touches to the surrounding area. To help you figure out what’s missing around your hearth, we have compiled a list of the top must-haves for your fireplace and mantel area.
Decorating for fall can seem like a challenge, especially for an outdoor patio area. To help keep the entertainment in the backyard, we’ve compiled some of these great fall patio decorating ideas including using autumn colors, hanging a wreath, and messing around with hay, pumpkins and gourds to channel the season.
Although the summer is winding down, more and more people are using their outdoor fire pit ring in to late autumn so they can continue to enjoy the outdoors despite the impending cool, crisp weather. A fire pit helps contain a fire so that everyone can safely enjoy the flame either in a backyard, a patio area or somewhere a little farther away from home, like a camping adventure. These designs can also be used in a covered area, such as a screened-in porch, throughout the year.
Gel fireplaces were introduced as ventless alternatives to wood or gas-burning fireplaces. While installation for the traditional wood or gas fireplaces can require heavy renovations to the home, gel fireplaces do not. They are also a perfect addition to a home that needs supplemental heat for only a short portion of the day. In addition, maintenance and upkeep are limited to routinely purchasing new cans so a flame can be produced.
Mantels Direct aims to provide superior products with modern design, and these Italian wood-fire ovens fit seamlessly into the blend. You and your guests can enjoy all your favorite breads, meats or pizzas in sleek, contemporary designed ovens in the convenience of your backyard or patio area. The larger ovens have storage space for the wood, while the smaller ones have wheels for easy storage throughout the year. Additional features can be found with the shelving space and brick or stone finishes. For a limited time, all these ovens are available with free shipping as well.
Marble work often brings to mind images of the immense and beautiful works of art the Romans and Greeks created. Similarly, marble fireplaces of today provide a timeless, stunning, and functional work of art that can be enjoyed in any home.
DIY projects have become very popular over the past few years. As a result, we have noticed more people wanting to install a full mantel or shelf mantel on their own. While each installation will vary in length of time it takes to complete, we can tell you from experience these projects are relatively simple to do!
It may seem odd, but many people start thinking about their fireplaces during the summer time. That’s because they want to have their fireplace ready to enjoy when the cool and chilly winter months arrive. Now is the perfect time to start thinking about updating your fireplace mantel with a beautiful, elegant Cast Stone Mantel.
Mantel Shelves highlight the beauty of your fireplace. In addition to being available in custom lengths, shelf mantels are also available in several styles, such as, wood and cast stone. Mantel shelves are used in several ways, whether it’s to revamp an existing fireplace or highlight a newly constructed fireplace. Our standard shelves are often our most popular, but we understand that sometimes a standard shelf mantel just won’t do the trick.
You will notice there are several steps associated with measuring for your mantel - the height, width, and depth. For your mantel to best fit within your home or office, you will need the facing and opening measurements for both the mantel and firebox cavity. Facing height, widths, and depths are the overall lengths of your mantel as a whole. Opening height, width, and depth measurements, however, measure the firebox area. Remember, all measurements should be recorded in inches.
It’s the time of the year when sitting outside under the stars with family and friends seems like the perfect way to wind down after a long, hot summer day. Sometimes, though, an unseasonably chilly evening or the looming threat of a brisk fall can abruptly end your stargazing adventures.
Classic styles are almost always the most popular and are available in a wide variety of materials to suit most any home. Wood fireplace mantels offer great looks depending on the type of wood, the grain of the wood, and can be painted or stained to your specific color needs. These mantels are available in either mantel shelf or full mantel surround styles.
As the days get longer, we find ourselves spending more and more time outdoors and well into the evenings. This is where outdoor fire pits have become the staple for outdoor enjoyment. Not just visually appealing and relaxing but also functional, these pits create the perfect mood for an entertaining evening with family or friends.
When you look around your home, does your fireplace look a little uninviting? Let us help you reestablish it as the focal point of your room. An easy update to most fireplace mantels is to add new fireplace surround facing material. “Surround facing” is the material which is between the edge of your firebox and the inside legs and bottom of your mantel surround. Facings are typically brick, granite, marble or other natural stone material. Many older homes may still have the unfinished brick which the chimney was made from.
To create a unique and inviting retreat, consider a Buschbeck Outdoor Fireplace. These beautiful pieces have a modern appeal and can help you create the perfect spot to sit and relax after a long day. Not only can you enjoy the soothing flames, but dinner can simmer over the fire on the grill accessory while you rest in your favorite lounge chair.
We recently featured the Perfect Outdoor Fireplace Kit in one of our blog postings a few weeks back. However, this time I’d like to go into a little more detail about its construction by first sharing a new Perfect Outdoor Fireplace Assembly Video. This great, informative, step-by-step assembly video shows just how easy it is to construct your own outdoor fireplace with just the assistance of one other person. Additionally, I wanted to remind everyone that while these outdoor fireplaces look great on their own, they are also fully customizable. You can add stone, rock, brick, decorative cement elements etc, to make a stunning, one-of-a-kind fireplace.
Every space needs a focal point, and our exquisite collection of Classic Stone Outdoor Fire Pit Tables is a great place to start. These fire pit tables are built by hand and made of a composite limestone. This material is weather resistant and looks like natural stone, but at a fraction of the cost. Each unit is offered in a variety of honed composite limestone finishes, colors and a natural texture capturing the true essence of real stone. When seeing it in person, its unique color and veins are simply breathtaking.
