Project #10389 - Glass Door for in the wall stone fireplace
Here are pictures of our new fireplace. We like the Brookfield in flat black. Our new fireplace is 39 1/4” wide and 37” tall.
We want cabinet style doors that open flat against the fireplace like the picture of our current fireplace which I included.
Normally on an irregular stone fireplace we recommend fitting the doors inside the opening and filling the gaps with mortar. In your case, the stones appear to be relatively flat, so an overlap fit may be possible, but the width of the Brookfield frame may not be sufficient to hide the gaps between the stones unless you chisel off the one stone on the upper left that juts into the opening more than the others. Cutting back this stone will allow the frame to overlap more and cover the gaps. For this reason, we have created several other mock-ups showing doors that have wider frames that would cover the gaps without having to cut back that stone. We have also showed how doors would look fitting inside, in which case we have shown how it would look if the stone was cut back.
Fireplace Opening Size: 45 1/2" W x 28 5/8" 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.
This page was created as part of our Free Fireplace Door Design service. Anyone who has a fireplace and is considering glass doors can take advantage of this program. All you have to do is email us some pictures of your fireplace and we will create digital mock-ups showing you how various fireplace doors will look on your fireplace. This is hands down the best way to shop for fireplace doors. Click Here to Begin Your Own Project!
