Project #10665 - Glass Doors for Fireplace
Customer Comments: Hi, We are looking to add glass doors to our fireplace to protect our toddler. We want the doors for safety, but we like how the opening looks with nothing there. Essentially, we want the doors to be as invisible as possible but strong enough to not break if they're hit with a toy. We plan to use the fireplace occasionally, likely with the doors open (unless there's some reason to keep them closed), but we want it to be closed off pretty securely when it's not in use. The opening is 29" wide by 22.5" tall.
There are pictures attached, but we're in the middle of buying new furniture, so most of what's currently in the room will be misleading style-wise. We included a picture of a few items that capture what the feel of the room will be once it's furnished. We're also replacing the current mantel with a barn beam in a color very similar to what's there now and painting the walls greige.
From looking at the website, I think we want steel doors, Carolina or Legend rectangle (those look identical to me in the pictures, not sure why we would choose one or the other). I don't think we want any mesh or screens. Bi-fold doors, vintage iron finish (or honey maple or whatever you all think is going to be the least obtrusive with our stone), with rugged steel pulls or knobs (or whatever you recommend). I'm happy to discuss by phone before and/or after you send the mockups.
Our Comments: Here are the mockups requested after our discussion over the phone. We also added the Craftsman door for others to see on your unique fireplace. The proportions on these mockups are slighly off as your dimensions are much smaller than the pictures we start with. So the frames will be a bit wider in reality than what you are seeing here.
Fireplace Opening: 29" W x 22 1/2" H
Medium Range Steel Doors
Steel doors are more substantial than the less expensive aluminum doors. They are heavy duty and rugged and are more customizable because the frames are laser cut.
High End Hand Crafted Wrought Iron/Steel Doors
Hand crafted doors take on a more rugged natural look for those who appreciate craftsmanship tasteful details.
