Project #10495 - Minimalist Fireplace Doors

Customer Comments: Hello! I would love design help selecting the best glass door option for the attached fireplace. I like the minimalistic look of #1 Stiletto, #21 Carolina, #27 Aspect in black. Could you please assist with selecting the best option for our fireplace? I attached the requested photos. Dimensions: 33"W x 31"H (there is about 1/8" variability depending one where I took the measurement from on both sides. Let me know if you need anything further! Thank you!

Our Comments: We have created the mockups you requested. The stiletto and aspect doors may not be the appropriate choice since they have only a 1/2" overlap and it appears that the lintel may drop down too far to accomodate that. We will verify that with you. So the Carolina is the best choice from the list you supplied. We also included a couple other doors including a very simple sliding door that has no hinges.

Fireplace Opening: 33" W x 31" 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.
