HELP with asymmetrical fireplace . . . please? How would you design a mantle for this fireplace?
First, ignore the sample mantle hanging there now. The problem I'm having is that the brick on the left side of this fireplace extends all the way to the wall (approximately 32 inches). The brick along the right side of the fireplace is 15 inches shorter than the brick on the left side. How can I design a mantle that looks symmetrical? What do I do . . . center the mantle over the entire hearth, or center it over the firebox? All suggestions are appreciated. Thank you so much.
