Decorative wood, marble, granite, concrete mantels and more.


Dating back to medieval times, fireplace mantels were originally designed to project over a fire to collect smoke. Today’s mantels are primarily decorative, typically composed of fine woods, but also available in marble, limestone, granite, brick, or concrete. Modern mantels provide a focal point to make the fireplace the central element in the room. They are also sometimes known as a chimneypiece.


Attractive solid wood mantels transform the fireplace into the focal point of the home. Cherry, walnut, and mahogany are dense woods that make for high quality, exceptionally durable fireplace mantelpieces. For more modest budgets, poplar, maple, and oak are more affordable choices that offer their own unique beauty to the room.



An attractive alternative to traditional wood mantels, metal mantelpieces are completely non-combustible and can be installed closer to the fireplace, which allows them to deflect heat away from entertainment systems installed above the fireplace. They have become increasingly popular with the rise of industrial trends in modern home design.



Another contemporary alternative to traditional wood designs, concrete mantels are becoming more and more fashionable in lofts and other urban residences. Versatile and highly durable, eclectic and eye catching, a concrete mantel can a touch of metropolitan sophistication to any home.

    We stopped by here today to see the options and plan for our fireplace. The sales person was friendly and knowledgeable. He wasn’t pushy at all. We are going to hire them most likely. I will update the review when have more experience with them.

    I had problems with my fireplace that I purchased from Fireplace Pus. The professional and personal service of the technicians that I received from the extremely competent and knowledgeable team of Fireplace Plus was outstanding. They were the best. Of course they solved the problem. They also really nice young men. I could not be more satisfied.
    From the sale to installation, Fireplaces Plus has been excellent. They are very knowledgable and do all they can to ensure customer satisfaction.

    Solid product and solid team. Owner took (literal) ownership of a situation and explained very thoroughly and listened to my rant calmly and patiently. Team followed up with more details.Highly recommend Neal and his team.

    We wanted to do a built in fireplace and called many places but Neal was the only company who promptly followed up and provided a reasonable quote. The install team Juan and Tony came exactly when they said they would and the job was also finished exactly when they said it would end. I’m in awe of the work and this company is awesome! I admire my fireplace every day 🙂
    Highly recommend this company for their knowledge and Kyle is great.

    Anyone looking for a reputable, one-stop shopping experience for gas log fireplaces, needs to look no further than Fireplaces Plus, Inc. in Vernon Hills. Neal, owner and sales rep, starts the process, offering excellent products and sound advice to meet individual needs. His friendly, honest professionalism is evident from the start. His main goal is complete customer satisfaction. We recently had a gas log system in our existing fireplace that fell short of our expectations. Neal immediately took steps to understand what wasn't right and made arrangements to modify our unit. Two different installation crews worked in our home. Both were knowledgeable and adept in their work, offering sound advice on the operation of our product. Our home was left spotless when they left.From start to finish, Fireplaces Plus, Inc. is a five-star operation! Thank you to all of them.

    Went in today prepared to purchase a new glass front for our fireplace. They told me how to fix the issue myself and even demonstrated on one of their floor models. Very helpful and honest.
    Colleen Steward
    Our fireplace was deemed unsafe and we wanted a gas log set, so we needed a company to help. Fireplaces Plus was amazing! Neal was super honest and helpful. They handled everything including demo, tile work, and installation of the new gas log set and remote system. They were friendly, professional, and respectful of my home. I would highly recommend them!

    Great store with huge varieties of electric , gas and wood fireplaces. They not cheap but remember you got what you pay for. Colin was very helpful and knowledgeable about everything I’ve ask for.
    Highly recommend this team, from top to bottom. Everyone who worked on our Flare fireplace project provided exemplary customer service. Neal, the owner, checked in everyday. Adam in the store shared his knowledge. Installers Rich and Matt completed their work efficiently. Juan and Maria were skilled finishers leaving our walls ready for paint and tiles. I would choose Fireplaces Plus every time!

    We visited Fireplaces Plus in Vernon Hills to purchase two replacement gas log kits for our two fireplaces at our home. The staff could not have been more friendly, helpful or professional! They had everything we needed in stock. Now our fireplaces look new again!
    Ron Friend
    Top notch quality and service. Neil and the crow were all incredible. The Fireplace came out better then we could ever have imagined. We just love caming in the home now and seeing this gorgeous fireplace. Ask for Juan for your stone work, he's truly a Artist.
    Tim Truesdale
    They supplied and installed all the hardware for our three fireplaces and did a beautiful job and not the slightest issue. They also installed our Broilmaster outdoor grill. All was done exceptionally well.... that was in 2001!!! Today Mike came over to restore the grill and it is as new!!! Really professional and detailed work! 20 years of outstanding service is pretty amazing!!!
    The Install guys were awesome. We love the new fireplace..
    Tim Anderson
    Got a linear direct vent fireplace from this place and I’m extremely happy. Me and my husband can’t say enough good things about the exceptional customer service they provide.
    Mirela memic
    Very pleased with my new fireplace AND the customer service. I had a gas insert installed. There were some annoying issues with my fireplace, such as it would not ignite on the first attempt or even the sixth, but would eventually fire up. Despite their busy period, members of Fireplace Plus visited my fireplace for diagnosis and would also call for follow up. They diagnosed the issue and everything works great. I appreciate the extra effort provided to create a satisfied customer, which I am.
    Mimi Laneman
    Professional, detail-oriented and expertise! I was very pleased with our entire experience with Fireplaces Plus. Neal, the owner was who came out to give us a quote. He was so honest, even talking us out of the more expensive option because he said it would be too big for our space. He was super accommodating too. Because of the timing of our remodel, we needed to move fast. I had three other quotes but he stepped up with a last minute quote and also the best price. Our installers came that Sunday, only 5 days later and did a perfect job. They know their craft, were helpful in explaining what we needed to know about it and were actually nice to have around for the afternoon! So personable! I would recommend them to anyone! I will post pics when the mantel is complete. It's going to be a show stopper! Thank you, Neal and Team!
    Colleen Pragalz
    Neal, the owner came to our home to personally verify/diagnose what the issue was. He spoke with Napoleon Fireplaces support, and ordered the necessary part.I was definitely impressed with the customer service provided, and the extra effort shown on our behalf. I’m eagerly awaiting the shipment and installation of the required part to get our FP going!Bottom line - great customer service.

    Personal service. Professional and experienced

    I never got into any of the store locations. I had Neal come to my house and quote turning 2 wood burning fireplaces into gas fireplaces. Previous to this I had two Chimney companies come to my house to inspect and quote. Not only was Neal's price a HUGE cost savings, he treated me like a friend. No BS. Very Honest and trustworthy. Since I had no gas I had to run gas lines to these fireplaces. Neal has partnered with two brothers, Bob and Eric that run gas lines to the fireplaces. They were at my house on time. They were considerate, honest, clean, and trustworthy. This team of guys had a positive attitude, and were friendly. Amazing good men with great knowledge and experience! Thank you guys!
    Robb Tausend
    Great people. Helped me get a log under warranty, and got the parts that I need to fix my fireplace myself. Professional and good customer service, been enjoying our fireplace for over 10 years now.

    Just had a gas fireplace installed. I love it
    William Schatz
    Dan and Danny were very professional and helpful. They did a great job and cleaned up after they were done. I highly recommend Fireplaces Plus!
    Jen Tobergte
    Buying a fireplace from them was the best decision on our old house in Vernon Hills. So much so, that we're getting one put in for our new house in Ivanhoe. Great place - good service.
    Daniel Patrick
    I bought a unit and had it installed a couple years ago. The store and its owner have been very responsive to my questions and some service issue. They were always willing to go the extra mile even though I live 30 miles from the shop. The service technicians were professional and were never rushed, they spent the time to figure out the problem. The issue finally was a factory fault that was figured and easily fixed-Thanks guys- great place - great service- all you can ask!

    Moved into a new home and needed a gas log for our fireplace. Ad came in mail so my wife and I drove to Fireplaces Plus. Robin, Marge and the guy with hair were terrific to deal with and quickly set us up with a Cross Timber log set. Mike and his partner called and set up our installation for a few days later. They were on time, friendly, efficient and helpful in showing us the safest way to ignite the log set without a resounding mini-explosion. Never would have guessed it ourselves. All in all, a wonderful experience and we now have not only a beautiful fireplace setting to enjoy, but the knowledge that when and if the electricity fails, we can still keep the house warm with our gas fired logs.
