Custom Fireplace Designs

A roaring fire blazing in a gorgeous fireplace – there are few home features more beautiful and more relaxing than a fireplace. Not only will it be the center of where your family gathers, but it can make a dramatic aesthetic statement as well. In today’s blog, we’re highlighting gorgeous custom fireplace designs – and exploring what makes them style-showstoppers.

At TurnTech, we’re a custom wood shop that builds one-of-a-kind wood pieces that complete indoor and outdoor home renovations. Working with homeowners and contractors nationwide, our pieces are used to build standout front porches, staircases, fireplaces, tables, and much more.

Our Favorite Fireplaces with Columns

Every single one of these fireplaces has a distinct style that enhances the room around it. See all five of our favorite fireplaces with columns and get inspired to build your own!


Tall statement piece fireplace mantel in home

This custom fireplace is the centerpiece of this living room. Notice the straight maple columns that reach from the base to the ceiling. These tall columns are designed to draw attention to the entire wood-decorated wall. Plus, pay careful attention to the colorful stone around the fireplace that matches the countertops sitting to either side


Ornate wood fireplace mantle

Part of a home renovation project, this custom fireplace design brought an exquisitely ornate feel to the entire space. The highly-detailed molding above the fireplace matches with the molding running at the top of the fixture. The columns sitting on either side of the fireplace accent this through their classic carved style and ornate capitals. Everything about this dominant piece has been designed to showcase the personality of the homeowners.


Traditional mantle fireplace

While the design of this fireplace is somewhat subdued compared to the one above, it still features several intriguing touches. The first thing that grabs your attention about this design is the prominent carving directly above the fireplace. Make sure to notice that the wood columns flanking the fireplace are half-columns and have a flatter look as result. In addition, there is some elegant, yet subtle detail work on the mantelpiece.


modern white fireplace mantel ideas

While fireplaces with columns typically fit into a classical home aesthetic, you can achieve a modern design as well, too. These wooden columns feature a rectangular profile accented with clean, straight lines. All of these angular touches are a hallmark of the modern style. Even the white paint has more a contemporary feel than a stained wood hue.


Contemporary Fireplace Mantle with White Columns

This final project is a fireplace that could pair well with the vast majority of home styles. The round columns are stately, yet not overwhelming, and the use of white paint is well balanced by the light blue paint color. Again, simple straight lines form the mantel. This project shows that fireplaces with columns aren’t only for classical designs, but they can enhance suburban family homes as well.

Justin and team are awesome. They have been providing me custom molding to match my clients existing moldings for my DC projects for years. They are easy to work with. Send them a scale sketch of the profile and you get a cad drawing back the next day to confirm. A week or less (One day if it is a real emergency) your molding is ready for pickup. And their Poplar Woodstock is incredible, straight and dry. Definitely the best wood I have worked with in the last 20 years. Thank you Justin. Jim Lackford

Outstanding service and quality care. I sent my old post to Turntech and Turntech created a custom drawing to fit the old post and then turned an outstanding new post to match my other existing posts. I wanted a pressure treated yellow pine wood and it was no problem for Turntech to use a pressure treated wood and then kiln dry it for turning. I live in Florida and it was easy to coordinate with Turntech remotely by email and phone and then to ship the post to me. They do outstanding work and quality craftsmanship and are willing to make it right if something is wrong. They are very responsive and professional They are a 5 out of 5, I wish I could give a higher rating.
