The mantel design should compliment the style of the room but still reflect the owners personality and taste. This can be achieved by having the mantel custom designed or by selecting a pre-designed layout. Cast stone is an attractive and practical material to use to create a beautiful mantel because of its design versatility, texture and lightweight benefits.  To further enhance the beautiful feature and not only create a focal point but a bold statement piece– include a custom overmantel in the design.
