Fireplace screens are the perfect addition to any fireplace. Fireplace screens prevent sparks and ashes from the fire entering you living space but can also be a beautiful accent to your home’s décor.
There are two basic types of fireplace screens, which include flat screen and folded screen styles.
- Flat fireplace screen: Consists of a solid, unbendable structure, which sits directly in front of your fireplace. This type of screen is perfect for those with children or pets that like to get a little too close to the fire.
- Folded fireplace screen: Constructed using panels and sits a little out from your fireplace. The folded fireplace screen is great for those who do not want to have to move the screen each time they tend the fire and for large fireplaces.
Our flat fireplace screens and folded fireplace screens are available in a variety of styles and finishes to compliment any décor. Choose from traditional, antique, contemporary & modern, and rustic designs. Fireplace screens are constructed from a variety of materials including brass, steel, wrought iron, copper, and many more. When choosing the perfect fireplace screen, keep in mind your home’s color scheme and style. If your space features warm colors, we recommend any of our copper, bronze, rust, gold or black fireplace screens. If your space is finished with cool colors, try a brass, stainless steel, pewter, aluminum, or white fireplace screen to add a touch of style.
Before purchasing a fireplace screen, make sure you’ve measured your fireplace to ensure a perfect pairing. If you’re shopping for a folding fireplace screen, we recommend adding 10-12 inches to the width and 1-3 inches to the height to find the right sized screen for you fireplace. If you’re looking for a flat fireplace screen, we recommend adding 1-3 inches. Single panel fireplace screens should overlap your fireplace opening by 1-3 inches for overall spark and ash protection.
