Warming Up with Faux Wood Fireplace Mantels

Warming Up with Faux Wood Fireplace Mantels

It’s a cold, gray day today in Deer Park NY. One of those days you just want to throw on that Snuggie-thing and huddle around the fireplace if you’re lucky enough to have one.

If words like wind chill, bitter cold and probable snow showers are part of your everyday vocabulary during the winter months, then you’ll probably be spending a lot of time around that fireplace, and you’ll want it to look its best – especially for the holiday season.

"The faux wood mantel looks beautiful and was easy to install onto my newly constructed hearth.The wood stove area in my log cabin, is the highlight of my home!" - Kim, Walworth, NY

Warming Up With Faux Wood Mantels

Faux wood fireplace mantels may be a good choice for you if you’re looking to spruce up the look of your fireplace design quickly and inexpensively without sacrificing your aesthetic. The average DIY’er can install one of these mantels in just a day – leaving you lots of time to decide what’s going ON the mantel, whether you want to display photos, awards, decorative pieces or anything else that conveys your sense of home.

Below are a few more examples of previous customers who installed faux wood mantels in their own homes.

"The mantel that I bought from you guys worked out wonderfully. Very good alternative to an expensive real wood beam...The stain applied easily and turned out amazing, you can't tell it's fake! "- Luke M., Austin, TX

Bernadette from Sherwood Park, AB in Canada was getting growing increasingly frustrated in her search for an old barn beam to create a mantel that would coincide with her rustic tastes. Luckily, she had great results with the custom Woodland Mantel:

"I was getting very discouraged...until I came across your site. I ordered a mantle immediately and was completely surprised! We just finished and I think it looks amazing. No one knows it's not the real thing."
