Fireplace mantel shelves can enhance the cozy atmosphere of your living space with various styles available, from traditional to modern, that deliver warmth and ambiance. If you're remodeling, designing your dream home, or sprucing up a vacation rental, a new fireplace shelf can be an easy and cost-effective way to upgrade your space. Mantel shelves come in a wide variety of wood species, concrete, metal, and cast stone, and are suitable for farmhouse, contemporary, or vintage designs. You can choose from simple modern mantel shelves with clean lines to rustic, hand-hewn beams, and traditional ornate mantels with corbels or breastplates. You have the option of choosing floating mantel shelves that can be installed on a statement wall or above a linear fireplace, perfect for a modern design. Alternatively, attached fireplace shelves are often used in more traditional fireplace designs.
