Custom Fireplace Glass Doors for Small Fireplace - Project #11012

Customer Comments: Good afternoon, I am interested in your custom fireplace doors. Attached are three images of our wood burning fireplace in our living room. I am looking for something simple and classic to complement our 100 year old home in Cleveland, Ohio. For the finish, I'm interested in black or something very dark. Also, we plan to replace the hearth tiles in front of the fireplace (most likely with a slate slab) and paint the brick and built-in cabinets white, all prior to adding the doors. I would prefer the standard rectangle doors and black mesh curtains. Classic handles are good, and we would need to add the child safety clips.

Right: 26.5"
Top: 26.125"
Bottom: 26.25"

Our Comments: We have created mockups of several different doors for your fireplace. Some with narrow frames others with wider frames. Because the opening is so small, a wider frame may be considered to bring things back to a better proportion, but this is purely subjective.

Fireplace Opening: 26 1/4" W x 26 1/8" 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.

About Finishes!


Steel Firelpace Surround Facing

Using solid steel to trim the fireplace is a rather new modern technique that creates a modern/rustic look depending on the finish applied to the steel. The steel surround can be made in the same finish as the door or something different for contrast.

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.

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.
