A mantelpiece is made to be placed above a fireplace. It frames the opening of the fireplace and décor can be placed on top! We recommend placing it a minimum of 12 inches above the fireplace.
We recommend a mantel to be at least 6 inches for sturdy support.
We recommend supporting it will steel mantel brackets. These are heavy-duty so they're made to support the large piece! However, if you decide to get a floating mantel, you will need a different type of bracket.
A mantel is made to be placed above a fireplace. A shelf can be placed around the walls of the home, but mantels can also be used as thick shelves if you want!
We have mounting instructions so you can do the installation yourself. To install it over your fireplace, please follow the instructions for our wall mounting installation page. Don't forget the drill!
Nope! You can use it as a large shelf and put décor on top!
For our steel mantel brackets, we offer a one year limited warranty. You can read more about it on our warranty page.
