10 Popular Fireplace Mantel Styles for 2019
The new year is a time that marks new trends, styles and designs. One timeless piece of furniture will always be the fireplace mantel. Whether your home is modern, traditional or somewhere in between, find a Pearl Mantels design that flawlessly accents the vision you have for your home.
1. Distressed Mantel Shelf
A distressed mantel shelf provides the perfect rustic charm for any room. The light distressing of wood enhances the natural beauty and offers an antiqued look that adds a beautiful decorative touch to your room.

2. Traditional Fireplace Surround

3. Reclaimed Wood Mantel
A reclaimed wood mantel is similar to a distressed wood mantel but instead of making new wood look used, it repurposes already used wood into a new piece. They both have features that are worn, but the reclaimed wood tends to have more character due to its naturally weathered look. A reclaimed wood fireplace mantel offers a piece of decor with a unique story and appearance that can not be replicated.
Using reclaimed solid pine, the Pearl Mantels Solid Heart Pine Reclaimed Wood Shelf is a timeless beauty. It is available in a cool-toned, gray Driftwood finish or warm, honey brown Whisky finish that will provide a one-of-a-kind accent to any room.
4. Cedar Log Mantel
The perfect addition to any cabin style home is a cedar log mantel. The natural log displays visible characteristics of gnarly wood, cracks, and knots to offer a simple, yet unique look. Nothing makes a home feel cozier than the warm look and feel of natural wood furniture.
The Pearl Mantels Cedar Log Shelf is made of organic cedar wood with a light, natural, VOC free finish that brings out the natural beauty. This live edge log shelf features matching corbels to provide a strong, bold focal point in your home.

A Henry Shelf by Pearl Mantels offers a modest design that can be used to enhance any room. This shelf is perfect for the modern home due to its clean look and classic color options of black or white.
6. MDF Mantel
A great alternative to solid wood fireplace mantels is MDF. This material is an engineered wood product that is made of wood fiber, resin and wax. Mantels and shelves made of MDF provide superior performance in heat and high temperatures because it does not warp or crack. MDF also provides a smoother finish when painted compared to solid wood.
Pearl Mantels offers many MDF shelves and fireplace surrounds, including the Crestwood. The MDF Crestwood Mantel Shelf is a great option for above a fireplace or on an empty wall. It is available in black, brown or white and has a simple, elegant design.
7. Acacia Hardwood Mantel
Acacia is a durable hardwood that is known for its natural beauty. This is an exotic wood featuring a mixture of light and dark browns to create a unique pattern that could not be reproduced the same. An Acacia fireplace mantel is a strong, water-resistant piece that will provide the perfect update to your fireplace or room.

8. Hidden Storage Mantel Shelf

These storage shelves can be used over a fireplace, under the TV or in any bedroom, bathroom or office. A popular design includes two hidden drawers on each end that simply pull out for easy use. Installing a two drawer storage shelf is a great addition to any present-day home that despises clutter.
