What Is the Correct Spelling:
Fireplace Mantel or Fireplace Mantle?
Really, you can spell it either way: fireplace mantel or fireplace mantle. While the majority of people spell it mantel, as we do here at Agee Woodworks, it can also be found spelled mantle. The dictionary lists both spellings and defines a mantle as “a shelf that projects from a wall above a fireplace; and the finish around a fireplace”. (In England they call a mantel a “chimneypiece".)
Either way you are correct. And whether you are looking for the best quality and prices on a fireplace mantel or a fireplace mantle, at Agee Woodworks you will find both.
Of course, if you were looking for Mickey Mantle you have struck out.
