COASTROAD Hearth & Patio
Mantels come in all shapes and sizes, but using a little experience, I'd say the gas fireplace in the photo above is about 32" tall, the tiled surround and trim is about 8" high (6" tiles + 2" trim), the orange bit of wall is about 5" high, the mantel shelf header is about 9" high and the shelf itself is about 1 1/2" thick.

So, the total is about 55 1/2" +/-. I would say that 54" is an <i>average</i> height in a room with an 8' or 9' ceiling. That is measuring from the top of the hearth. If you have a raised hearth, all bets are off, because you have to reconcile the relative distance from the top of the hearth with your overall desired height. Be careful about lowered combustible (wood) mantels more than the gas insert instruction manual allows.

I would also strongly recommend sketching up the whole thing to visualize it before starting to swing a hammer. Mistakes made on paper (or the computer) are cheap.

Love this! Glad someone else thinks this looks great. I just painted my remodeled livingroom a shade like that and want to paint my (unusable) fireplace the same. I've chosen a darker, burnt orange color to use, as I'm going to paint my front door the same color to stand out from white exterior trim and a dark, brownish/gray teak colored siding. Will post pics when project is done. Thanks for the encouragement.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Kelly Porter added this to Cozy Up With Warm Clay Colors
Soft clay tones work very well with other light hues. Used as an accent, this shade of persimmon adds interest without overwhelming the room.
In this living room, the fireplace becomes a statement piece with a coat of orange paint. Finishing the mantle and surround in white spotlights the architectural detail, while pale yellow walls help the orange to pop without allowing it to steal the show.
Samantha Schoech added this to Color Guide: How to Work With Orange
Orange helps bring out the architecture of this fireplace in an otherwise architecturally muted room.
In this case a grouping of vases offsets a painting that's been shifted to the left. The placement plays up the energy of the bright orange fireplace and keeps the architecture from feeling static.
Orange. An often-forgotten color, orange can instantly warm up a room in even the subtlest accents. From tangerine to coral, a shade of orange can work in your home. More: Houzz guides to decorating with orange
This is a lot of bold color, but it works here because there is nothing else competing with the hues. Bright colors are best paired with toned-down and neutral furniture, textiles and accessories. This is also a great example of using assertive color to call attention to desirable architectural elements, such as a fireplace.
