Does your fireplace resemble more of a cave like hole in the wall then a cozy and inviting place to get warm and toasty on a cold winter’s night? Does your fireplace mantel or surround look like something out of an episode of the Brady Bunch? Do friends stare at your fireplace in horror and shear bewilderment rather then looking at it in admiration? Has a movie company asked to feature your fireplace in a horror film? Have you walled off the room in which your fireplace sits? Are the only ones using your fireplace the birds and mice that come down it in winter? If you answered yes to one or more of these questions then it is time to head your car towards Mr. Fireplace on Union Ave in Laconia, New Hampshire.
At this wonderful, Mom and Pop style store you will find all sorts of great fireplace overhaul ideas ranging from new mantels to complete new walls of cultured stone. Prices range from around $200 to upwards of $1,000 per mantel. The mantels themselves come mostly in varying styles of wood but you can get surrounds in tile, marble, metal or other types of stone to oomph them up a bit. The surrounds are what sit between the wood of the mantel and the actual edge of the fireplace. Some mantels are very plain while others have intricate carving or molding. Mantels are usually installed for you by the pros at Mr. Fireplace, however, if you are feeling adventurous you can buy the materials at Mr. Fireplace and install it yourself. If you prefer a mantel made of all stone these can be special ordered but are not a standard item for Mr. Fireplace.
If your whole fireplace is a shambles then Mr. Fireplace can fix that as well. They provide chimney cleaning and lining services to get your wood burning fireplace into shape. They also have a huge selection of gas and wood inserts to make that old fireplace look new again and run more efficiently. If that isn’t enough to make your fireplace pop then why not get some new fireplace tools? They have those as well!!
