Tile will be in a hering bone design. The hearth will be lowered to the floor, with a grey hard wood on the floor. I saw on YouTube where the firebricks were painted. Is there a special paint for that? The gas valve will be flush against the wall. I also saw on you tube where they used a sheet of metal painted black to cover the bricks. Sitting right behind the fire balls. Looking to purchase soon.
Here are several designs based on our discussion. To paint the inside firebrick and exposed black metal use Rutland Stove Paint, you can buy it on Amazon. The sheet metal you saw on YouTube was likely the fireback made by R.H. Peterson. It is available in black, satin stainless steel or polished stainless steel. We have shown this in some of the mockups. We also included a valve cover and gas key to match the doors.
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.
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.
