Custom Made Fireplace Mantels

If you have a look through newspapers, magazines or on the internet, you are likely to come across many advertisements for fireplace mantels. After all, there is nothing more fitting for a living room or dining room than to have a fireplace as the central point.

A fireplace mantel surrounding the fire looks warm and inviting; it makes your living room somewhere you want to be and relax.

Although there are many offers available for fairly inexpensive fireplace mantels, choose one that is handcrafted and made from real wood, if your budget allows it. It won't be disappointed and more importantly it will be made to fit your individual fireplace space.

Many companies that advertise offering inexpensive fire place mantels mass produce them. They do offer a selection of different sizes, but it's likely you will have to compromise on the size and get one that doesn't fit perfectly.

Additionally, buying a fireplace mantel from an advert or an online site means you only get to see a small picture. Certainly you can get an idea of the type you would like, but think how much better it would be to go and see them for real. Visit a local company that makes fireplace mantels to order. Check out their fireplace mantel displays area. Feel the quality and the craftsmanship that goes into making a custom fireplace mantel.

If they make the fireplace mantels on site, visit the workshops to see just how much effort goes into producing a custom fireplace mantel. Everyone is made to order based on your requirements and the size you need.

Talk to the craftsmen and learn about the skills involved and the care that goes into making each mantel. Once you have been and visited a local company, you won't consider going elsewhere. After all, why would you want to purchase a fireplace mantel from a company hundreds of miles away that you have never seen.

You have no idea of the quality and if it turns up and you don't like it, you have to arrange to get it shipped back. Then you have to wait for a refund, or for another fireplace to be despatched; much better to buy locally from a specialized company.

Buying locally has many other benefits, both directly and indirectly. Firstly it means you are supporting a local business in your area; this help the local economy and keeps employment down. Secondly, you know that if any issues arise, the company will do everything possible to sort them out. Thirdly, if you have problems fitting the fireplace, the company is a call away and they can give you help and advice.

Quite simply, if you want to enhance the look of your living room and brighten up the fireplace, then go for a real wood fireplace mantel that's custom made for you. It's more expensive, and may take longer to arrive, because it's custom made, but you won't be disappointed when it turns up and you get it fitted.
