RE: electrical outlet in fireplace mantle? (Follow-Up #3)

This is the type of outlet I used. The plate is flush with the mantel top and the actual outlet is recessed into the mantle so the plug completely disappears.

electrical outlet in fireplace mantle?

posted by: sammiecanada on 05.05.2010 at 11:58 pm in Fireplaces Forum

We are going to be doing renovations and getting a new mantle built. I am wondering if it's possible to put in an electrical outlet on the outer part of one end of the mantle? My husband rolled his eyes at me but I like to put up Christmas lights on the mantle and instead of having to get the extension cord to reach the other plug I thought it would be a nice feature. Has anyone done this? Any photos?
Thanks so much for any help.
