Screen options for fireplace remodel - Project #11499
Fireplace #1 of 2 - See Fireplace #2
Customer Comments: We are remodeling the fireplace, that existing mantle will be removed, it will be a black Venetian plaster with a limestone fireplace and hearth. The mantle is very simple so we would want something less ornate, in a black or iron rubbed bronze. Thanks!
Our Comments: Here are the options we suggested in our email communications. We did our best to create the mockups using the mantel you have chosen along with the plaster.
Fireplace Opening: 43" W x 38" 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.

Framed Mesh Curtain Screens
Mesh curtains are a great choice for fireplaces like this since the curtains slide open and closed. There is no need to remove the fireplace screen and set it on the carpet, which would cause issues. Frame screens can be attached or free standing.
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.
