Marble, granite, or slate are top choices in natural stone fireplace surrounds, but many opt for Corian or quartz, too. The mantel and mantel shelf can be of the same or different material with both choices equally beautiful. Natural stone can last a lifetime with very little need for maintenance. These materials are also fire safe, perfect for your fireplace surround.
The mantel is the decorative frame around the fireplace and facing. The ledge above the firebox is the mantel shelf. Here at Graves Design & Remodeling, our Master Builders and designers can create intricate, ornate details for a custom mantel all the way through to something sleek and modern for you. We can replicate vintage mantels as well.
We’ll help you every step of the way from design to finish. Our talented designers will give you thoughtful ideas and expert advice on how to create the fireplace of your dreams while staying within your budget.
