This is a very typical brick fireplace with a raised hearth that has been painted white. The only thing unusual is the opening size, which is just a little taller than average, so none of the stock aluminum doors from Design Specialties will fit. So this is going to require a custom made fireplace door, but since it is such a simple application, it is an open slate and pretty much any style custom door will work. What looks good is very subjective and depends on the rest of the decor in the room. Because we did not see any room pictures, we are operating a little blindly, so we picked a few more doors than usual. We have chosen some custom aluminum doors and some custom steel doors, so the price range and look varies widely. This should give you an idea which direction to go.
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.
