Arizona wood mantles can give a distinguishing look above any fireplace or on any wall. When you make the decision to use custom wood mantles in your home, you will want to use the best quality and longest lasting product. This is an investment. Having a mantle over your fireplace is a look that exudes coziness and comfort. Perhaps you are renovating a country cabin or a rustic home. A custom wood mantle created by Woodland Custom Beams is a unique touch of craftsmanship that will give it the “wow” factor.
A recent trend finds architects and interior designers mixing woods within the same space. If a multicolored, stone fireplace stands alone in the center of a great room, it may face a contemporary kitchen with oak floors and cabinets on one side and a brown leather sofa with cream colored carpet on the other. Two areas reap the beauty and coziness of the same stone fireplace, while the Woodland Custom Beam box mantles on each side may be crafted with completely different woods and finishes. Each of the Arizona mantles provides a very visually distinctive appeal depending on which materials are used to surround each side of the hearth.
The purpose of Wood Mantles is to embellish the fireplace as well as provide a shelf space for mementos, knick knacks, family photos, vases and even trophies. Now the purpose in many homes is to use those Wood Mantles as a place to mount the family flat screen or home theatre screen. Perhaps less aesthetically pleasing to see the mantle bare and almost being wasted for shelf usage, however, a very useful support for the basic structures of the large television screens that today’s family rooms are used for.
Entertainment center duties are now the new norm for the various types of Wood Mantles available, such as rugged oak tree stump, conventional rough knotty pine, mahogany, cherry, birch, teak and many other types of decorative wood.
For suggestions and ideas on using Woodland Custom beams a good place to start would be looking in magazines or on websites. This can give you a variety of looks to choose from. By gathering ideas from these places you will then be able to create the custom look you want to achieve.
