For an Arts and Crafts Style Fireplace Mantle, sometimes referred to as Mission or Prairie Style, the Bridgewater fireplace mantel surround is a great choice. Be sure to view the alternate image that shows two Bridgewater mantels used together in an Overmantel (or over mantel) installation to frame a flat screen TV.

Note: the Bridgewater Mantel does not use pins and cam-locks to attach the legs. It has leg extensions that fasten to the back of the mantel breast (aka header) using three 1 1/4" screws in each leg. These screws are included.

Calculate the dimensions for a custom mantel yourself by following steps 1, 2 & 3 or,
click here to complete our Fireplace Dimension Worksheet and we will do the calculations for you!
Step 1. Gather Your Fireplace and Facing Measurements.
Choose either the Standard or Full Wall illustration that best resembles your existing fireplace and facing, then note measurements 1-14. (Some answers might be 0.")
Step 2. Determine Mantel Size.
Wood mantels are sized using just 3 dimensions: the mantel opening width, opening height, and mantel return. To determine what dimensions you need, follow these basic guidelines:
Precise Mantel Opening Width
Equals Facing Width "2" less (minimum) 1"
Precise Mantel Opening Height
Equals Facing Height "6" less (minimum) 1/2"
Precise Mantel Return Depth
Equals Facing Thickness "9" plus (minim.) 1/2"
(Note: The mantel overlaps the outside edges of the facing. Make alterations to your facing prior to measuring.)Your mantel size may need to be altered due to the fireplace, wall, or hearth configuration. We will address this in the line drawing we send to you.
Step 3. Enter Measurements, Comments, Wood, Finish & Sizing Options.
Simply enter the 1-14 measurements you gathered in Step 1 in the fields below. If desired, enter a desired shelf height and desired inches of facing showing above and beside the firebox opening. Write a short note, if desired, choose a wood type and finish and the appropriate mantel opening width range, opening height range and return depth range. Enter the precise measurements for each, if you've calculated them. The price in the box at the bottom of the page changes as you make wood, finish and sizing selections.
Once you complete the checkout process, we will review your measurements and selections, and to insure a proper fit and customer satisfaction, you will receive a dimensioned line drawing of your custom mantel via email for your approval BEFORE your mantle is built and BEFORE your credit card is charged.
