Here is a somewhat unusual but elegant fireplace where the opening is not only small, but taller than it is wide. There is a disproportionate amount of marble on the sides of the fireplace between the legs of the mantel. We have provided three concepts. The first two are designed to make the opening appear wider by overlapping the sides more than the top, while the third option uses a very narrow frame that lets the fireplace be itself. All three options are shown cabinet style doors instead of bifold doors.
See additional notes below (we added 3 addition door options)
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.

After Picture: Their installer originally put the doors on upside down thinking the handles belonged at the bottom. To correct this all they had to do is pop the doors off and flip them over to the correct side and pop them back in.
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.
