One of the most important decisions you need to make when installing a fireplace is choosing the type and style of mantel. This can be a tad overwhelming as there is such a range of materials and styles available these days. A beautiful mantel will always contribute towards the overall look and feel of a room so it is important to get it right. Your choice will of course depend on the type of property you own and how much money you want to invest in adding a fireplace your home. Naturally if you have plenty of cash to spend a custom designed fireplace mantel is always going to be the best option especially if you want a fireplace mantel specifically to enhance the look of the decor in your room. Some of the most spectacular country house fireplaces are made of stone or marble. These not only have a timeless appearance that can add both charm and elegance to any room but they are built from a material that is durable and long lasting. A well-built stone fireplace requires less maintenance and creates a classic and commanding presence which immediately commands attention, making it the focal point of any room.
There is much written about the benefits of an electric fireplace and much is also written about the common differences between electric fireplaces and traditional fireplaces. Of course, both have their value but for many people there are a number of reasons why people purchase an electric fireplace as opposed to purchasing a "real" fireplace. Cost and installation often play a role in the decision to purchase an electric fireplace as opposed to purchasing a traditional fireplace. Of course, this does bring up an overlooked question: what happens to those who have already purchased a traditional fireplace. Do they completely shut down the traditional fireplace and opt to not think about purchasing an electric item? Absolutely not! Instead they can simply install an electric fireplace insert into the traditional fireplace and they will be in business once again!
