Rustic décor is one of our very favorite interior design styles, and it’s not hard to see why. This school is all about creating spaces that are at once warm, welcoming and inspired by the nature around us. In practice, that means incorporating lots of unfinished wood, neutral tones and earthy textures.

Unfortunately, it’s all too easy for novice fireplace owners to make mistakes when it comes time to order new fireplace doors. Whether the problem is immediately apparent (wrong fit, bad quality) or takes longer to make itself known, there are many missteps that are entirely avoidable if you know what to watch for.
