Plaster Fireplace Mantel: A Practical Choice for Quality and Design

Blog |August 9th, 2016

Once the fireplace structure is in place, the final stage of the installation is the addition of a mantel or surround to highlight it in an attractive, durable manner. While there are a number of different choices from which to select, you should consider the merits of a plaster fireplace mantel or surround. Plaster surrounds hold up over time, are customisable to fit the size of your fireplace and complement a variety of decor styles along with their other attributes.

Fireplace Mantels of Plaster Are Durable and Attractive

Plaster mantels or surrounds for fireplaces are non-flammable and durable just as other plaster elements are in a home. With the proper care, a mantel from this material will last as long as the house does and beyond at times. On top of this, it will highlight your fireplace in an attractive manner to create a focal point for the room.

Order the Mantel to Fit Your Fireplace

Each plaster fireplace mantel or surround is made to order. The dimensions of your fireplace will dictate its width and height. It will fit perfectly for this reason without the need for additional trims or adjustments.

Plaster Fireplace Surrounds Complement the Majority of Decor Styles

You will discover styles of plaster mantels that will complement decor styles ranging from modern to traditional. While certain ones are formal in nature, others are simpler or geometric in appearance. Select the one that complements your home in the ideal way.
