Fireplace setup in apartment for decoration

    Hi, I am planning to put a original wooden mantle frame fireplace with cast iron insert and granite hearth. The floor is wooden flooring. Any idea how to fix the wooden mantle frame in to the wall? Do I need a fireplace expert or should I reach out to a handyman who can fix by drilling holes? I’m trying to set it up as a dummy fireplace, only for decoration.

    What makes it original?

    Personally/professionally, I think it's a pretty bad idea. It's an expensive item to install, one that won't. But if you're et on it, the person making it up for you would likely be able to fit the lot.

    Is this for your own place or are you renting it out?

    Main reason I ask is a mate just moved into a two bed apartment with a similar decorative fireplace and to be honest all it's done is limit where he can put the couch and tv! He'd much rather it wasn't there.

    This is for my own place, hopefully I will get the keys soon. The living room is large enough - rectangle shape , so thought to decor with a fireplace for show.
