A fireplace is often the centerpiece of a room. Most often the room and furniture is arranged around a fireplace's location. Family photos and heirlooms are showcased on the mantel and it becomes a place of interest for your visitors. From an interior design standpoint, a fireplace does wonders in setting the stage for the rest of the decor. Many of our customers come to our two stores looking for ways to update their fireplaces. Often times our customers are updating their fireplace from a wood stove to a gas insert or they are replacing their existing fireplace insert which is the perfect time to also update the rest of the fireplace surround. One of our local contractors, Brad Tufts, with Curb Appeal Construction recently completed a fireplace remodel with one of our custom mantels. He was nice enough to send us some before and after pictures of the mantel he just completed. As you can see the customer decided to have the dated red brick removed and replaced it with a flagstone type rock. We helped him pick out a reclaim timber beam to use as a mantel and found some block style corbels to give it a little extra flair.
