My plan is to build a new mantle and replace the drywall with stone like the pic I sent originally. But before I start building a frame to cover the tile and laying stone, I wanted to make sure I knew it would work with the door.
We have created 2 examples to get started. The way we see it is that the current tile is recessed further back than the drywall. If you want to cover that area with the stone, you will either need to float out that area with non-combustible material or knock down the drywall that surrounds the opening to flatten it.Or, use the option we are presenting below that show the door covering the entire area where the tile current is. We'll go from here.
Note: These mock-ups are not to scale and are meant to help you choose the model of your screen or door, not the finish. Although we may create a general representation of black, iron, bronze, gold and silver tones, you must choose your finish from our samples using the links below. Ask your project manager which samples apply to the items in your project.
Option #3: Stiletto Fireplace Glass Door in Rustic Black. This door requires that you float out the space behind the tile with non-combustible material, or flatten the wall around the opening.

Mesh & Insulation Options
The Mesh options are behind the glass so you can burn the fire with the doors open and still have spark protection. Great for real wood or gas logs since most gas long manufacturers insist that you have a screen in front of the logs when they are burning. Mesh panel doors are the most popular and are best for when there are toddlers present because they will not open backwards whereas the mesh screens are easily pushed in. Insulation goes between the back of the frame and the fireplace facing, providing a better seal.
Black Mesh Curtains - These slide back and forth on a rod behind the glass
Gate Mesh Doors - These are separate doors behind the glass that have a flat wire mesh and a black frame.
Insulation: Provides a better seal between the fireplace face and the door frame.
