Custom Fireplace Glass Doors - Project #11184
Customer Comments: Hello! We've been looking through your wonderful website and wanted to ask for help selecting glass fireplace doors for our wood-burning fireplace. Our main goal is to keep smoke entirely out of the room as the fire dies down (we have great flow apparently but still the smoke smell especially at end seeps in), so we'd want glass that could withstand this. If it matters, we may eventually convert to gas.
The fireplace is fieldstone so as we understand a bit of a masonry challenge but doable. The size is 36" wide by 30" tall. A bit hard to measure with the fieldstone. See last photo. Not sure if with this fireplace it's possible to work from afar?
Aesthetically, we are in Massachusetts in a French Provincial home with somewhat European meets New England style. Which is a hodgepodge, I know. Fireplace door-wise this translates to I think something relatively neutral (but not black)--soft gray or tan to blend, we think. We don't like modern but don't want overly rustic. We'd prefer two doors and not bifold. We like handles (not push glass). We like patina but not when it looks fake. We prefer texture--nothing worse than having to clean metal and having it smudge.
That's a long list. We look at everything locally by Stoll and nothing quite hit the mark. The Transitional door came closest. If Pottery Barn made this in a custom glass door (in the pewter), that would come pretty close.
Finally, price-wise we're quite conservative. We'd rather something scaled back but high quality--without a lot of fuss, bulk, or price.
Thanks so much!
Our Comments: I'm sure we can find the perfect door for your fireplace. We specialize in doors made by Stone Manufacturing, the only fireplace door company that makes real patina finishes using solid brass. Based on your description, the only thing you are not going to like about them is the price, they are at the top end when it comes to fireplace doors. So we have created a variety of mockups including some doors that are more affordable we believe you may like.
Important Note: We have created 2 mockups for each one of these door. Be sure to click on the pictures to see the second mockup which shows your entire room setting so you can get a better feel for how these doors look with your decor.
Fireplace Opening: 36" W x 30" 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.

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.
High End Hand Crafted Solid Brass
These doors are hand crafted by skilled artisans from Solid Brass. Very high end, and very refined. These doors are available in real natural patina finishes, which is more so what you are asking for.
High End Wrought Iron
This door is hand crafted by Stone Manufacturing. Because these doors are hand forged they have a unique texture to them with a hand rubbed finish. Not overly rustic, but with small details that you can appreciated in the handles and door stops.
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.
