Antique Fireplace Mantels

These are classic and sophisticated mantels that have long ago been associated with estates and palaces. But now you can get that exact same look in your house.

If you have an older house that is colonial, then an antique fireplace would look fantastic, because it will produce an historical presence.

The vintage mantels were not constructed for today's fireplaces, so even if you buy one from an antique or salvage store, you would still need to make some adjustments to it. For the most part, the mantels tend to be a lot larger, so you'll need to get them trimmed. It would be a good idea to have the measurements of you're fireplace with you when you visit the store, so you get one that would fit your fireplace.

When it comes to accessorizing your mantel, you should keep with the vintage style, and display antique bottles or miniature sculptures. As soon as the mantel is in your room, if you feel it looks clustered, don't worry. By putting a mirror on the mantel, it can create an illusion that the room is bigger.

It is really essential that before you do any type of construction, that you verify the building and fire codes. These mantels are quite expensive, so consider employing someone to do it. Professionals state that this type of job is for professionals only. However, look at it this way, if you decide to sell your house, having a fireplace of this magnitude can increase the value of your house.

So now you can head out and get that antique mantel you've always wanted.Dallas Texas Heating And Cooling\nDallas TX Heating And Cooling
