Our custom Strausburg mantel turned out wonderful! I wanted to share this picture of the completed work. It was just what we were looking for and we are so pleased with the outcome. Thanks again so very much.




I just wanted to say that from start to finish Mantelcraft made this purchase hassle-free. The surround is exceptionally well made and sturdy.  The paint option Is a bargain and looks beautiful.  There are no thin areas, scratches, or other issues. Installation was a breeze and really affixes the mantle to the wall well. This is truly a solid surround and gorgeous.

Hello, Up and done and I am SOOO PLEASED.  This was something my late husband and I had wanted to add for years but never really took the time to shop for.  Just wish he was here to enjoy it too.  My handyman who installed it was impressed with the piece and took down your website information.  He has a poured concrete chimney in his house….said a crane had to lift it in when house was built.  And though he is a professional handyman never got around to doing a mantel for himself.  The variety you offer and the French cleat strip made an impression with him.  And, it took him less time to hang the mantel than it did for him to install a laminate to carpet transition strip in a doorway!  So yes, well satisfied on this end.

We ordered the Victoria, and asked for some small customizing: putting on some appliques we ordered from Heartwood Carving, and an unusual paint color.

The mantle that arrived, well packaged and in perfect shape, far exceeded our expectations. A lot more detail and craftmanship than shown in the photos, a perfect paint job (no brush strokes showing), exact size we ordered, and with the modifications we had requested, perfectly executed.

The Customer Service person, Michael Richards, was responsive and knowledgeable. And he was able to tell us exactly what modifications could be made. I have no reservations recommending Mantelcraft. I'd buy from them again!

I designed a simple modern fireplace wall for my condo.  I was so happy when we opened the box that the shelf was sent in and it is perfect.  The Black paint was applied to a perfect smooth highly reflective surface and is exactly what I wanted.  The design is perfect.  During the wait between ordering and receiving the shelf, I called customer service with questions… All of the personnel were friendly and more importantly, they knew their products!  I would highly recommend this company to everyone.  Thank you!!!!

Best regards.





Basement Transformation Using Oak Beadboard Paneling

Hello Mr. Richards,

I wanted to touch base with you. We completed our house remodel and I thought that I would forward some pictures showing your mantel and what it looked like as a completed project in our home.

Thank you for your assistance - we are very pleased with the MantelCraft addition.

Hi Design The Space!

We are very happy with the Sophie marble mantel in Cararra that we installed with a black slate surround, both from Design The Space. All in all, it was a good customer experience and we're very pleased with the end results. I am sending you a bunch of pictures of our final installation, from different angles. This is in a Manhattan apartment and I think it ended up looking far more sophisticated than one might think for the price!

The fireplaces turned out perfectly and they look great.

Hanford Fireplace Mantel After Being Installed in Living Room Hanford Mantel After Sheetrocking Exposed Brick Hanford Mantel After Being Decorated View of entire living room with a Hanford Mantel


Here are the before, during and after photos of our living room remodel using the Hanford wood mantel. We had an old floor-to-ceiling brick fireplace that stuck out in the room a full 18". With your help, we ordered a mantel with a 19" Return and cut a rectangular opening in the top shelf to allow us to 'slide' the mantel in place around the brick fireplace. Then we sheetrocked the exposed brick above the mantel, painted it, did some other things in the room, and you can see the dramatic impact it all had!

Thank you!!!

Just Delighted! I rarely write reviews of purchases but in this case I must advise I am totally delighted with the Georgetown fireplace mantel you supplied.

Ms. Sloan,

I purchased the Bellemy Fireplace mantel shelf in a custom length (since my fireplace wall was an odd width that no typical mantel shelf would properly fit), and I am beyond satisfied. The customer service from start to finish was fantastic and the piece was built and delivered in two weeks as promised on the website. It arrived carefully packaged and the best part is that craftsmanship of the piece is exquisite! Installation was easy and now I have a mantel to decorate for Christmas! Thank you to all the staff at Design The Space. I am one very happy customer.

Hi Angie,

Here are some photos showing the original fireplace and our new Forestdale fireplace mantel. Thanks to your great packaging there was no damage at all. Due to our hearth and the gas valve locations, the notching the legs for the hearth was challenging and required some hand sawing to fit but everything came out OK. The finish is beautiful and exactly what we were hoping for based on the sample you sent.

I am very impressed with Design the Space and I was very happy to work with you while we figured out the final dimensions and the customization that the mantel required. Your help and guidance was great! I will be glad to recommend Design the Space to my friends. Happy Holidays.

Craig W - Danville, California


Here is our fireplace! We love it! Thank you for making it such an easy process. When my friends ask where we bought our beautiful mantel and I tell them 'on line from' they never thought it would be possible.

Dear Sirs,

Feedback is something that I do not always give out and I really should. So I am taking this moment to provide feedback about my recent purchase.

Overall the experience was great. I had some second thoughts about undertaking a project to redo the fireplace mantle but after having gone through the entire process I have to admit that it was pretty easy.

I was very satisfied with the entire process from Design the Space beginning with the helpful emails and willingness to answer all my questions, to the well packaged crate that arrived safely, including the workmanship on the mantle and the great craftsmanship (thanks Dwayne), and finally the clear directions for installation.

I'm a very happy customer!
