  2. 2. New And Old Fireplace Mantles Besides the stone, brick, or slate work that is the base, or core, of your fireplace, fireplace mantles play a big role in the look of the entire structure. There are basically two types of fireplace mantles when you truly think about it. There are the mantels that are one big piece, which consists of the top flat area and it stretches down the front of the fireplace. Then there are the fireplaces that are stone or brick all the way up and the fireplace mantles are just the top flat part, which lifts right off from the rest.
  3. 3. Need of repair after years Either way, you are looking at parts that can be removed if the need ever came about. These can sometimes be in need of repair after years of being used or even just simply replaced. And maybe they are in fine shape but you are wanting a different look. Replacing fireplace mantles are an easy fix to that situation. With a few hours of work, you could completely transform a room. All of this because of one slight adjustment and a little bit of time and effort put into a project.
  4. 4. Purchasing Fireplace Mantels Believe it or not, there are several different sizes of fireplaces within homes so it is important to know exactly what it is you are needing. This is especially true if you are ordering fireplace mantles online and having them shipped to your door. The last thing you want is to end up with something too big or too small because then you will have the mess of trying to ship it back so be careful. It could be an awful sight trying to return three or so fireplace mantles.
  5. 5. Search the phonebook You could always search the phonebook or the Internet for places near you that sell fireplace mantles so you can go look at them in person. This may help you in determining which style you would like to go with. Also, you will save yourself a lot of money in shipping charges. Then again, there is always the other option of not purchasing fireplace mantles at all.
  6. 6. Someone you know is crafty If you or someone you know is crafty, then you could always design and build fireplace mantles of your own. This is an excellent way to put a little bit of your heart and your own style into your home. This was the way it used to be done and it can surely be done again.
