Before you come in to look for a mantel, please measure the actual opening in the wall where your fireplace will go. Besides the width of your chimney, there are fire codes that will determine the minimum size of the mantle. It is a good idea to work with your contractor or whoever is installing your fireplace, as they will be knowledgeable in the fire code allowances.
