Gilda Napolitano Fireplace, 2018-02-10 00:57:46. 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.

In direct contrast to the Georgian, Elizabethan and Jacobean periods, the Victorian era avoided sameness and had a richness that appealed to all. It was customary to decorate mantels with plush velvet pelmets; over-mantels had many shelves and brackets and sometimes the whole mantelpiece was backed with a mirror - plate glass became fashionable around this time. The late Victorians particularly loved Jacobean architecture, with its rich profusion of Renaissance and medieval motifs.

Combustible materials such as wood mantels and paneling must be kept a certain distance from the firebox (generally 6 inches or more). The building code also limits how far these materials project from the face of the fireplace, how large the hearth extension must be, and so on. Codes vary around the country - it is important to evaluate your project relative to the codes enforced in your area.

Therefore you should always educate yourself and make sure to consider the measurements concerned with installation and use. Having a nearby power source of a 100v outlet is sufficient and should be hidden by the unit so as not to interrupt the visual appeal. Focusing on choosing the proper unit is essential to your satisfaction.

Just do not forget that you must be sure that your fireplace is well suited for this idea. Fireplaces have been built to suit just about any need and just about any location in the home.

Are you planning on painting or getting new furniture? What is the style of your house and your existing furniture? Should the mantel be painted or are there other natural woods in the house that you would like to tie in with the fireplace? Tying the look of the fireplace into the style of your home makes it an elegant accent instead of oddity like our pink fireplace was before it was remodeled.
