Step-By-Step Guide: How to Install Oak and Pine Mantels
First, you need to decide where the mantel is going. Use a spirit level and your pencil to draw a level line on the wall, no bigger than the mantel you're fitting.
Mark where the centre point is and then measure the distance between fixing points on the back of the mantel.
You can then transfer these measurements onto the wall.
Drill the holes, and put in the universal wall plugs, then hammer them flush.
Next, screw in the screws, leaving the heads sticking out enough to install the mantel.
Then, install the mantel on the fixings.
