The solid limestone mantel that adds warmth and beauty to your room might leave your wallet feeling a little empty. Made with a composite material of natural limestone and portland cement, this mantel costs less and is much lighter than natural stone.

The manufacturer says the mantel can be installed with construction adhesive in less than 30 minutes. Color choices are Austin Stone, Del Sol, Desert Sand, Natural and Rustic (shown).

  • Preston Mantel comes in custom sizes and costs approximately $800 (June 2006).
