There are many reasons why someone would want a custom
fireplace as opposed to one off the shelf so to speak. In many cases, a
standard size fireplace will look out of place because a wall is so big. Or you
just cannot find one that fits your style perfectly. In cases like this, a
custom fireplace is the perfect solution.
veneer is not real stone. It is made of plaster in a factory to look like field
stone and it is so well done that most people cannot tell the difference by
looking at it. Genuine field stone is beautiful, but it has a could of
drawbacks. First of all is the cost and second it is very heavy, limiting what
you can do with it. The lighter veneer lends itself to indoor use also, which
is not that easy with the real stone. Have you ever tried to attach real stone
to a wall?
Stone veneer can make a small fireplace fit a large wall and
a beautiful custom fireplace. Normal size fireplace mantels and surrounds are
made to fit an average size wall, however, if you have a larger than normal
wall, it can get lost. Take a look at how they did this fireplace using stone
veneer. See how they carried the stone down the wall and made a seating area
right in front of the fireplace. It makes the fireplace perfectly proportioned
to the wall and the rest of the room.
Another way to make a fireplace fit a large
wall is to simply have a custom built mantle and surround, but the one thing
you cannot enlarge is the firebox. It has to fit the chimney and that is the
way of it. So now you have a large space between the firebox and the mantel and
surround. You need to make it look like part of the fireplace and that can be
done using different materials. For instance, think how nice it will look with
granite surrounding the firebox and meeting up with the fireplace and surround.
It would add a touch of class and you can coordinate the color of the granite
with the color scheme of the room. Our primary goal is to build superior custom
fireplace mantels using only the finest materials. If you need a mantel for
your own home, we will deliver an attractive handcrafted mantel that you will
be happy with for years to come.
Odhner & Odhner custom designs
mantels to fit your individual tastes and requirements. Whether it is a "Shelf
Mantel" mounted above the firebox, or a full "Surround Mantel" which encloses
the firebox on three sides, your mantel piece is sure to be a topic of
discussion for years to come. What ever your reason may be a custom fireplace
will make your room your own, one that will not be like any other anywhere.
