Winter’s chill is finally fading and the smell of spring is in the air. It’s time to start thinking about transitioning from our indoor living spaces to their outdoor counterparts. There’s nothing like being outside to help rejuvenate and relax. But when evening comes and temperatures dip just below your comfort level, wouldn’t it be nice to have something to keep you warm and extend the amount of time you can spend outdoors? Outdoor fireplaces and fire pits are the perfect way to bring heat and visual appeal to your outdoor living spaces.
A home’s fireplace is often described by designers as the “central focal-point of any room.” It can command attention simply by its sheer size, but also by the simplicity or ornateness of the fireplace mantel. But what is your fireplace mantel saying right now? Is it slightly dated looking or dirty and stained from years of use, or has your current style changed and you are just looking for something new?
Because each Classic Stone Mantel is lightweight, preparation and installation is much easier and much less costly than traditional solid stone mantels. Our stone mantels are fire resistant and allow for zero clearance from combustible material (no space required between firebox and mantel) making it the perfect choice for gas, wood or electric fireplaces.
One of the most popular products on MantelsDirect.com is the Fireplace Mantel Shelf. Many folks will order a standard fireplace shelf (fixed size), but many more have situations where a standard shelf will just not work. Fortunately, we are able to create custom lengths (D) and heights (H), as well as special shapes including the 'L' and 'U' Wrap Around Shelves to meet situational challenges.
Unlike decorative accents such as picture frames or small vases, mantels are major assets and are often the primary showpiece of a room. Because of this, it is important to choose a mantel that fits in with your decor but also makes the right statement. With over 100 mantels and mantel shelf designs, plus a variety of finishes and custom sizing, Mantels Direct is sure to have the perfect fireplace mantel for your home.
The warmth and ambiance of a fire is natural draw for people to gather. An outdoor fireplace or fire pit can serve as terrific focal point for enjoying the company of family and friends. It can instantly create a draw for a space that did not previously have an anchor. Outdoor fireplaces serve multiple functions from warmth, ambiance to cooking memorable meals.
In April, we discussed three advantages of a cast stone fireplace mantel. It is simple to install, is available in a variety of colors and stone finishes, and comes in styles to complement any decor. Today, we're going to share the four style series in our cast stone fireplace mantels collection. Each series in the cast stone mantels collection carries a unique style and personality and has numerous options to make it your own.
We recently posted an article about the ease of adding an outdoor fireplace to your living space by using a Perfect Outdoor Fireplace Kit. Since that post, a customer sent us several before, during, and after pictures of their outdoor fireplace project that we wanted to share with you. The outdoor fireplace kit used in for the project shown below is the Perfect Outdoor Fireplace BBQ Edition Kit, which comes with a removable grill grate.
Mantels Direct takes pride in offering fireplace mantels to fit all styles, needs and budgets. For this week's post, we compiled a short list of some of the most creative spaces to install our fireplace mantels and shelves.
When the cold winter months roll around, how much do you usually pay in utility bills to heat your home? No matter where you live, supplemental heating is a clever way to increase your home's energy efficiency and reduce those monthly bills. If you think about how much time you spend in each room, you may find that you spend more time in some rooms than others. Supplemental, or zone, heating allows you to keep the thermostat turned down and supplement the heat in the rooms that you use most with electric fireplaces and stoves, gel fireplaces, or gas fireplaces.
Art is defined in several ways. Many people regard it as a hobby- something that you dabble in every now and then, when you have time. Other people, such as fire pit sculptor Rick Wittrig, see it differently. To them, art is a lifestyle, a form of expression, and a source of fulfillment for themselves and others.
Part of the fun of purchasing a new fireplace mantel from Mantels Direct is decorating it once it’s been installed. Here are five creative suggestions to keep in mind when planning your mantel decor: make it seasonal, centered around the fire, layered, and bold.
With the summer renovation season quickly approaching, many homeowners are searching for a way to add beauty and value to their homes. Ironically, the warming of outside temperatures every summer ensures that prospective renovators often overlook remodeling one of the most valuable heating elements of their home, their fireplace. A fireplace mantel upgrade can add thousands of dollars in value to a home and are highly valued by almost every consumer looking to purchase a new house.
As the months of summer steadily approach, many consumers across the U.S. are looking for a way to add ambiance and style to their favorite outdoor space. For many consumers this desire equals the addition of an outdoor fire pit. Despite the appealing nature of providing a warm and cozy gathering spot for friends and family, many consumers are often unnerved by the prospect of placing a large, dark pit in the middle of their favorite outdoor area. Fortunately for these skeptical consumers, outdoor fire pits are available in a variety of styles and designs that can fit seamlessly into almost any outdoor living space.
Today's post is about adding style to one of the most important elements of any home, the fireplace. A fireplace is one of the most important focal points that homeowners neglect. However, this does not have to be the case. With a little creativity and the right tools and accessories, a fireplace can be completely transformed into the formal centerpiece of any home.
As summer approaches, many consumers are searching for a way to add the ambiance of a fireplace to their outdoor space. Unfortunately for many consumers, the prospect of completing the installation of a outdoor fireplace can be very intimidating. Many consumers worry that installing an outdoor fireplace will have to involve hours of lifting bricks and spreading pounds of mortar.
As winter melts into spring, people across the U.S. have begun to migrate out of their living rooms and into their backyards. Blooming flowers and green trees have drawn home owners out of their wintery slumbers and onto back porches and front patios everywhere. Unfortunately, many homeowners find that in the early months of spring the chilly night air forces them indoors and away from their grassy yards and backyard barbecues.
March has arrived and for many Americans this month signifies the arrival of perfect outdoor weather. As spring training starts and baseball teams begin to prepare for the coming summer, many families are starting to uncover their lawn furniture and sweep off their patios in preparation for the coming months. With this change in temperature comes the perfect opportunity to spruce up your outdoor space with a new outdoor fireplace or fire pit. Nothing brings together families and friends like a warm fire on a cool spring evening and now that the snow is melting and warm breezes are sweeping across the country you have the opportunity to enjoy all that spring has to offer.
Nothing adds to the permanent and beautiful nature of fireplaces like stone. A cast stone mantel from Mantels Direct offers ease of installation and an appearance that makes your fireplace look as though it has been in place for a hundred years. Adding a stone fireplace is a fantastic way to renovate your home and can add hundreds of dollars in value to what might once have been an ugly, unused corner of your house. With the easy installation and great prices of cast stone, there is no reason consumers cannot have the stone fireplace of their dreams.
Fireplace accessories are often one of the most overlooked aspects of living room remodels. After the mantel is installed and your new electric fireplace is glowing brightly, many people neglect to add those final touches of ambiance which make fireplaces such a welcoming aspect of every formal space. The fact of the matter is, almost no fireplace setting is complete without the accessories that make the space not only usable but also more complete.
