Project #10873 - Fireplace Screens for European Style Mantel

There are now 2 projects for this fireplace: Project #10871 - Glass Door Options | Project #10873 - Other Types of Screens (this project)

Customer Comments: See original comments from Project #10871 Thank you for sending these mock ups (referring to Project #10871)! Its so helpful. When I see these, I'm thinking replacing the door may not solve our issue which is that we don't love the fireplace and its hard to find something that goes well with the gray marble.

Our Comments: Our original impression of the fireplace is that it does not lend itself to glass doors. So after your above comments, we decided to show the types of screens that are normally associate with a European "Baroque" style mantelpiece like yours. I think what you are struggling with is an attempt to modernize the fireplace instead of going with what you have. These recommendations may not go with the rest of your decor, but they do flatter the mantel.

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.

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.
