Fireplace Mantels in Luxury Homes


Fireplace mantels can be the focal point of any room. Luxurious fireplaces make a statement by drawing in the eye and giving the room a luxury atmosphere. Fireplaces utilize materials like natural stone and marble while the surrounding fireplace mantels can be ornately carved wood or a simple modern design. These permanent features in a home help to define the style of the entire living space.


Traditionally styled luxury homes usually have a fireplace front and center in the living area or den. The stately Tudor home pictured above is no different. The ornately carved mantel and marble surround are all in black giving a stark contrast to the other subdued colors in the room. Fireplace mantels like this one immediately draw in the eye for a bold statement.


For more understated elegance, the timeless mantel in the residence of designer Barbara Barry blends with the other architectural details in the room. Hand crafted and carved detailed molding adorn every room in this luxury home. The luxurious fireplace is a reflection of the rest of the rooms and the signature aesthetic of the interior designer who currently owns the home. The structure is a synthesis of classic architectural detailing with a commanding presence that is timeless.


Luxurious fireplaces are not just for traditional style homes. This Mediterranean style home has a floor to ceiling fireplace that is one of a kind. The focal point of this room cannot be denied. Attention to details, such as the curved inset that matched the curvature of the windows, are what gives this home architectural depth.

Stunning fireplace mantels can be found in many luxury homes. The additions of architectural features around the fireplace help to make a statement and pull the eye into the focal point of the room. A permanent fixture like a fireplace can be a show stopping work of art.
