Glass Doors for Cottage Style Fireplace Remodel - Project #11308

Customer Comments: Hi! The opening is 36 1/2" wide and 35 1/2" high. There will be a bluestone hearth and mantle. I am looking for a dark gray or black frame with gray bifold glass doors and a screen mesh door behind the glass. My place has a cottage feel. I appreciate your thoughts and insight. Thanks.

Our Comments: Here is our interpretation of how your fireplace will look after adding the bluestone and doors. We have included some other finishes you may wish to consider for a cottage style home, but all of them can be done in black or gray.

Affordable 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.
