FAQ – How to design a mantel around a raised insert?

One of the most commonly asked questions we answer for our customers is how to approach the raised firebox insert. Some things are best left to professionals. Stop worrying and start reading about how we can help you to create the marble fireplace mantel of your dreams, with ease…

Option 1 – Raised Hearth ( Ideal for fireboxes raised 8″-12″ )

Option 2 – Raised Opening Faced with Matching Filler Slabs ( The slabs are cut-on-site by the installing contractor )

This option is more common with firebox inserts that are raised up 3″ – 6″, in most situations. The slabs can be ‘matching’ or you can elect to go with a contrasting stone if you prefer.
