victorian-corbel

VICTORIAN CORBEL FIREPLACE

An Archtop really helps to finish a Victorian mantelpiece, they were the most popular style of Overmantels for a great many years. The Arched shape of the mirror will complement the Arched metal inserts commonly found in this style of mirror.

FRENCH STYLE FIREPLACE

This French style of fireplace is more curvy and ornate than many English styles, and can benefit from a slightly plainer style of frame. The frame will not ‘compete’ with the decorative embellishments of the fireplace.

Georgian

GEORGIAN FIREPLACE

The grandeur and majestic style of these Regency, Georgian and Neo Classical mirrors will perfectly compliment this style of fireplace.

Contemporary fireplace

CONTEMPORARY FIREPLACE

Contemporary fireplaces are defined by their simplicity and clean lines. We would recommend any mirror from our contemporary section, which adhere to the same design ethos. For something a little different, You could also try the juxtaposition of one of our stunning Antiques.

STANDARD AND BESPOKE OPTIONS

Alongside our standard sizing options, all Overmantels mirrors are available to order as bespoke builds, allowing you to craft a truly unique mirror for your space. To find out more simply select bespoke sizing in the quote options above and let us know your prefered dimensions.

HOW TO MEASURE

The diagram above shows a mantelpiece and the dimensions you will need to fit an Overmantel mirror above a fireplace. The fireplace shown consists of a mantel shelf and two pillars or uprights which hold up the shelf.

A) The maximum height of the mirror frame should be at least 5-10cm below a cornice, or 3-6cm below a picture rail.

B) If the mirror has feet that extend wider than the width of the mirror frame you must ensure that they do not extend past the end of the mantelpiece shelf.

C) The width of the glass should be greater than the ‘site’ or ‘aperture’ of the fireplace.

D) The uprights of the mirror frame should sit over the uprights of the mantelpiece and never be wider than them.

These guidelines only apply to mirrors where the frames fall vertically over the pillars of the fireplace. We have several standard sizes which fit over most average fireplaces.

However, if nothing fits, we can custom make your mirror specifically for your space.

Obviously, in other positions such as above sideboards, radiator covers and other types of furniture, the dimensions of that particular piece of furniture will give some suggestions as to the size of the mirror above it.

You may just want to cover a large area of wall with a free hanging mirror, in which case we can make whatever size mirror you want to fill the space.
