The degree of decoration on a Victorian fireplace mantel revealed social class and the social importance of a room. In working-class houses the fireplace was plain, but the over-mantle was very ornamental and made of wood, which was stained or painted. The industrious middle classes were able to mass-produce designs that would have only been previously available to the wealthy, and thus they had impressive fireplaces in the drawing and dining rooms - fireplaces presented in other rooms too, such as bedrooms, but these were on a much smaller scale. The wealthy were lucky enough to be able to choose any decorated designs that appealed to them.
Fireplace design ideas are plentiful. A fireplace can really make the room, so careful planning and consideration are important. Having a typical or traditional fireplace is not as suitable as one might think now days. Once that plain old style fireplace is in your home, you might begin doubting your decorating ability. You should take some time to ponder the idea of designing a very nice and complimenting fireplace. It will become a centralized area of interest for your guests as well as your family members. You will most likely want your fireplace to become a great conversation piece, or maybe it can become the one thing that wraps up the look of the whole room!

Reinhardt Quelle does fireplace remodels and custom cabinets in the San Francisco Bay area. After many years in technology, Reinhardt decided to become a full-time parent.
