Each Monticelo full fireplace mantle is carefully crafted to give years of beauty, durability and style to your home and is offered in six wood choices and a variety of finishes.

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 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:

Wood Mantels vs. Facing SystemPrecise 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
Equals Facing Thickness "9" plus (minimum) 1/2"

(Note: The mantel overlaps the outside edges of the facing. Make alterations to your facing prior to measuring for a new mantel.)

Your mantel size may need to be altered due to obstructions on the fireplace, the wall, or the hearth configuration. We will try to address this in our line drawing reply 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, your measurements and selections will be reviewed by Mantelcraft. To insure accuracy, proper fitting 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.

  1. Looks great - easy to install

    Posted by Stefan Koziolek on Feb 24th 2018

    We installed the Monticello mantel and a granite surround to beautify our simple fireplace. The entire process was great: easy to order online, good support to ensure that our order was correct, excellent updates on the fabrication and delivery of our mantel, and the quality of the mantel itself.

    It only took 5 minutes to put the mantel together following the easy to read directions, another 15 minutes to hang the mantel, and 5 minutes to install the scribing pieces on the inside. I wish every project that I've done was as easy.

  2. Simple to install

    Posted by Unknown on Nov 19th 2016

    I was extremely satisfied with the product, it fits perfect and looks great

  3. Exactly what I expected!

    Posted by Shmuel Goldman on Apr 4th 2016

    We recently moved into a newly renovated house and my dream of having a wood burning fireplace was coming true. However, I was left with figuring out how to do all the finishing on the fireplace. I worked with a wonderful salesperson at Mantelcraft named Michael Richards and he helped me not only in ordering my mantel but also in making sure that my granite facing was up to code etc. The mantel came and was installed and everything just fit perfectly. We are looking forward to many years of enjoyment.

  4. Great Piece

    Posted by Cade Henderson on Feb 18th 2016

    The staff was friendly and easy to work with when ordering my mantel and getting measurements. Mantel was very easy to install. Trim pieces were cut to perfection. I would definitely recommend MantelCraft to my friends.

  5. The best online ordering experience I've ever had. The mantel was perfect and beautiful.

    Posted by Sharon Coleman on Sep 7th 2015

    I worked with Michael Richards who was so patient and professional. I just moved to a condo so a traditional matel would not have worked. He offered suggestions and worked with me on the measurements (which was exactly what I received) and it fit like a glove. I will send before and after pictures when our renovations are over...a must see!
    Thank you so much,

  6. So happy!

    Posted by Anna P on Jul 7th 2015

    I stumbled across this website while looking for local places to find mantels. I had no idea what to expect in terms of quality, so I was thrilled when my beautiful mantel arrived. Every detail is beautiful and it was easy to install if you have some idea what you are doing. The service was great also. I called a few times before I was ready to order to make sure I had all the measurements correct and customer service was very helpful. Based on the quality and value, I wouldn't hesitate to order anything from Mantel Craft.

  7. Exceeded Expectations!

    Posted by John Reale on May 8th 2015

    From start to finish I couldn't be happier with both product and service. Mantelcraft staff coordinated everything perfectly. The Monticello mantel was built to a very high-quality standard that I would consider to be among the best in the industry. After a reasonably simple installation, the finished product looks terrific. It's been a real pleasure working with a company that provides such a high level of quality and integrity. My sincere thanks to all at Mantelcraft.

  8. So beautiful!

    Posted by Neena on Apr 28th 2015

    Very happy with this purchase. I emailed before I purchased, and customer support was great. With the instructions on their website, it was easy to figure out what measurements I needed, and they worked with me on getting the right size mantel. It was not difficult to install (I did it by myself! It probably would have been easier with someone else helping though.) The mantel was packaged well for delivery, and cut to my exact measurements. It does help to have a tablesaw in case you need to use the provided inserts - those are the only things you'll have to cut. It was easy to paint (I bought unfinished, paint grade. My fireplace looks beautiful now, and I saved so much money doing it myself with MantelCraft.

  9. Perfect fit, easy to install
