What size mantel do I need?

You’ll need to determine the best length, shelf depth, and thickness for your fireplace mantel. The length of your mantel depends on the width and height of your surround.  If your stone/brick goes to the ceiling, you normally come in 2-4 inches from the edge.  If your stone/brick comes up to meet your mantel you normally go 2-4 inches over the end.  Your shelf depth can depend on what you plan on putting on your mantel for decoration.  Standard depth is 9 inches.  The thickness depends on the height of your ceiling.  You want your mantel to be in proportion to your room.  If your ceiling is standard height - 8-10 feet, your mantel should be 5 inches thick or less.

You can also check our Measuring Guide for help in determining the right rustic wood mantel for your fireplace space. As a point of reference, our average size beam mantel is 72 inches in length with a shelf depth of 9 inches and a thickness of about 5 inches.

What mantel style is best for my fireplace?

We can create a mantel that is more or less distressed according to your desire.  Choose from our most popular styles on the Reclaimed Wood Products or look for a custom idea in our Gallery or Facebook or Instagram.  We sometimes have additional finishes that have not been added to our website yet.
