Mantel Surround With Granite Hearth

Custom Mantel with Granite Hearth

Scope of Work: Mantel Remodel With Granite Hearth
Town: Randolph, NJ
Timing: 3 days

This Randolph, NJ living room featured a floor to ceiling brick fireplace surround. The hearth was a cement slab and the mantel was a basic wooden shelf. The homeowners wanted a different look for their living room’s focal point. We drew up a design that they loved and helped them select a beautiful piece of granite to be used for the hearth.

 These Randolph NJ homeowners wanted a more modern look for their living room. They requested that we replace the brick with a custom wood mantel surround. Luckily, the existing brick surround did not protrude far from the wall. This allowed us to build the new surround over top the existing brick. If we needed to remove the brick, that would have required a lot more work.
We drew up a design which included picture frame moulding details and a natural stone hearth. Then the homeowners came to our showroom in Morristown, NJ to select the stone they wanted to use for their hearth. Natural granite is a perfect choice because it can withstand high temperatures. The granite hearth’s warm tones complemented the rest of the room’s decor.
In addition to the cement hearth upgrade, the floating mantel shelf was also transformed. We integrated the mantel into the entire design and extended it beyond the width of the surround.
Lastly, we painted the entire structure a soft white which really draws the eye to the beautiful granite hearth.
