Glass Doors for Small Kitchen Fireplace - Project #10994
Hello, This fireplace is located in our kitchen and has been used for cooking by the previous owner. We need a narrow profile and door(s) insert as the external stones are uneven. The fireplace is 25 1/16" Wide and 25 1/16" High. The mantle is a new piece of granite. Am looking for a more rustic look if possible. Thank you.
We have created some mockups showing various rustic designs for your small fireplace. These would be made about 1/4" smaller than the opening on the top and sides and the gap would need to be filled with mortar as shown.
25 1/16" W x 25 1/16" 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.

Low End Aluminum Doors
Aluminum is an excellent material for fireplace doors because it does not rust and can handle high temperatures when treated with powder coated finishes. Although this would not be considered a rustic design, we included it because it is the least expensive custom door if budget does not allow for any of the other options on this page.
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.

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.
