Project #10992 - Fireplace Remodel with Glass Doors and Surround Trims
Customer Comments: Dear Hansen, Please find attached 3 photos of my fireplace and it's surround. I am interested in Stiletto by Design Specialties. Your advise on how this will look in our place would be appreciated as well as your input as to the type of panels, etc. We are planning of painting the tan brick white and possibly adding a mantel above. I just want to make a modification, in addition to the added benefit of the insulation provided by a tightly closed fireplace door, a dab of a modern touch. Thank you.
Our Comments: Here are some diverse concepts to redo this fireplace using glass doors, a mantel and surround trims.
Fireplace Opening: Unknown
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.
Finish Samples: Design Specialties Finishes | Stone Manufacturing Finishes | Hearth Creations Finishes
High End Hand Crafted Wrought Iron/Steel Doors
These doors have many custom design possibilities including the addition of surround trims for a complete fireplace makeover. We can also fabricate a matching metal mantel shelf.
Low End Aluminum Doors
Aluminum is an excellent material for fireplace doors because it does not rust and can handle high temperatures when treated with powder coated finishes. It is also the most affordable.
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.
