Fireplace Remodel with Stacked Stone, Glass Doors and Gas Fireballs - Project #11362

Customer Comments: We are looking to upgrade our current fireplace and would like to work with you to see what solutions you come up with. Our fireplace is not masonry, but it is pre-built. See attached to this email the 3 pictures of the fireplace.

Our preferences are as follows:

- we want the fireplace door to be made out of glass
- french like glass doors ( not the bifold ones)
- the glass frame to be black in color
- the depth of the fireplace is 17in with a length of 26.75. Please recommend us a match lit burner as well (we prefer the burner to be low profile so that it does not take too much of the space- we will likely add the decorative glass to hide the burner)
- we want the look of the fireplace door be modern
- we will want to add the decorative driftwood, white balls (~4in), and decorative white glass
-add in a standard gas valve cover

Thank you

Our Comments: We will start with the two ideas below to see if this is anywhere close to what you are looking to do. We added a black surround around the glass doors in order to bring the fireplace into proportion and hide the internal metal that surrounds the opening. There are other ways to treat this with glass doors, but we felt this was the best.

Fireplace Opening: 42" W x 22 1/2" 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.
