Project #10895 - Glass Doors for Small Fireplace

Customer Comments: Hi, We have a small firebox on our living room fireplace ( 26" W x 19" H). Thinking it should be surfaced mounted as to not make the opening look smaller than it is. Something simple with a weathered or aged copper or bronze frame.

Our Comments: Here are some doors that will look great on your fireplace. The Savannah and Bungalow doors are not available in copper finishes, so we have included some other doors that can be made that way, although they are not in the same price range. Notice how some of the doors have much wider frames. This will give the illusion that the fireplace opening is larger than it actually is and make it more proportional to the entire brick wall.

Fireplace Opening: 26" W x 19" H

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.

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.
