Fireplace Mantels

Barn Beam Fireplace Mantel

Most fireplaces are the focal point of todays homes and your mantel should shout the style of your home.

Vintage barn beams make a dramatic statement and they can be presented to work with most home styles.

Rustic Innovations can custom make your special fireplace mantel or fireplace surround.

We use only beams left over from saving barns. No barns are destroyed just to make your mantel!
