Fireplace Mantels

Close Up Of A Fireplace Mantel

The inviting warmth and crackling flames in a fireplace naturally draw people to gather around the hearth.  Historically, the fireplace has been an integral part of the home as one of its central features.  Original hearths not only warmed the room, they were the hub of food preparation and family interaction.  With today’s modern floor plans and conveniences, the fireplace has evolved from its original purpose to become a prominent architectural element with a social function.

Within the open floor plans that are so popular today, a well-designed kitchen has become the central feature of the home.  The kitchen and adjacent living spaces are combined, encouraging guests and families to mingle before and after a meal.

Within that large gathering space, the kitchen typically opens to a room featuring a fireplace mantel or an integrated entertainment center, and it makes good sense for these elements to match or complement each other.  With Dura Supreme, your kitchen cabinetry, entertainment cabinetry and fireplace mantels are all available in matching or coordinating designs, woods and finishes

Fireplace Mantels from Dura Supreme are available in 3 basic designs – or your own custom design.  Each basic design has optional choices for columns, overall styling and “frieze” options so that you can choose a look that’s just right for your home.

Traditional Cherry hardwoods look rich and elegant framing a fireplace, especially when the styling and finish complement the cabinetry in the rest of the home.  For this mantel, “Transitional” styling was selected for the refined cove moldings used to create the mantel shelf.  Decorative panels selected for the columns blend perfectly with the cabinetry door style in the kitchen.
