At The Mantel Shoppe, our sole focus is creating beautiful fireplace mantels you’ll be proud to display in your home. We’ve perfected our craft over the course of more than 20 years in business, during which time we’ve sold nearly 100,000 mantels. We understand that producing top-quality fireplace mantels requires much more than a painstaking furniture making process; using the best materials is also essential to ensure the attractiveness and longevity of the piece. That’s why every mantel we sell starts with the finest hardwoods.
Red oak is one of the most commonly used hardwoods in furniture manufacturing. The fact that red oak was used to make wagon wheels and railroad ties is a testament to its remarkable durability. We offer a wide selection of red oak fireplace mantels featuring the distinctive reddish-brown hue and prominent wood grain patterns that so many homeowners find appealing.
Poplar is a fairly soft wood that is also less expensive than many other wood types. While poplar in its natural state is light in color and often contains brown or green streaks, it can be easily painted to achieve the desired finish. Our selection of poplar fireplace mantels offers an unbeatable combination of stability, aesthetic appeal and affordability.
Maple wood can be hard or soft, although even the softer variety is one of the hardest woods found in nature. When it comes to furniture making, maple offers the benefit of being extremely easy to work with. Homeowners love our maple fireplace mantels for their superior strength and durability, along with the alluring fine, straight grain patterns that distinguishes maple from other wood types.
Our cherry wood mantels are always in high demand! Cherry wood features a rich reddish-brown color that tends to darken as it ages, which provides an antique look and feel that other woods cannot achieve. Cherry is also easy to stain/finish, making it an extremely adaptable wood for use in furniture making. You can enjoy the beauty of a cherry wood mantel in your home for years to come.
Whether you prefer oak fireplace mantels or any other wood type, you’ll be hard-pressed to find lower prices anywhere else. Because we make all of our wood fireplace mantels ourselves at our Trussville, AL, we don’t have high markups like many of our competitors. We also offer free shipping within the continental United States.
