Glass Doors for Small Fireplace - Project #11049

Customer Comments: Hello! I will soon have a gas log set installed and want a sleek, minimalist set of doors and a screen. I have a 2 year old so safety is very important. My fireplace is small and awkward so I really want to keep it looking as open as possible - avoiding a thick frame if I can. It's limewashed stone and it's a rough opening. I took dozens of measurements and the smallest measurements are 32 1/16 inches tall × 28 1/2 inches wide.

Our Comments: Here are some examples of very minimal fireplace doors. Some can be made to overlap or fit inside the opening. Due to the small width we are showing these examples as twin doors but they can all be made as bifolding doors if desired.

Fireplace Opening: 28 1/2" W x 32 1/16" H (smallest measurements)

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.
