All About Fireplace Screens

Never discount the necessity of having a good fireplace screen, or a fireplace screen door. In the hearth industry they are one of the more important products that are sold.

Fireplace accessories such as these add a great deal of charm to hearths and homes, and provide comfort and warmth to rooms.

Of course, the most important aspect of a fireplace screen door is to safeguard the room against sparks that escape from the fireplace. You want to be able to protect your beautiful carpets and attractive floors, as well as create a safety barrier for kids and pets in the home. If the fireplace is kept open, there is the possibility of wind entering the room through the chimney. Fireplace screens can reduce wind interference.

Fireplace screens are also commonly used as decorative accessories. They are usually made of material that can resist heat from fireplaces. You can find many different fireplace screens that are decorated with artistry work that gives a special touch to any room. Moreover, if the screen size is larger, the fireplace looks larger and more attractive.

You can find screens in every variety of style, from antique, traditional, all the way to the contemporary side. The screens are available in a wide variety of colors and polished finishes of antique brass, copper, natural iron, bronze iron, pewter, and satin black.

The style most often seen on a functional fireplace screen is a brass frame along with black mesh. Decorative screens are designed as single to multiple paneled, bowed, glass, fan, and summer screens.

Summer screens add beauty to fireplaces and find usage in summer months.

One of the finest varieties of summer fireplace screens is the fan-shaped peacock screen in polished brass or silver pewter. Five-paneled screens are well suited for fireplaces that have large openings.

Some of the typical categories of fireplace screen doors include traditional spark and flat guards, folding screens, and screens that are attached to fireplaces as curtains or cabinet mesh. Sometimes, the screens are obtained with opening doors that are convenient to add wood or stroke the fire. In some cases, firewood holders and other matching utensils are obtained along with the screens as a complete set.

Having an attractive screen adds a special touch to any fireplace, giving you added enjoyment on those winter nights by the fire.

Electric Fireplace: Modern electric fireplaces models are now more long and narrow format, much like the HD and newest K4 TV LED screens? There are a number of buying decisions to be made when purchasing an electric fireplace.

If buying a wall-mounted fireplace, will you accept an electric fireplace installed "flush mounted directly to the wall". This means that the fireplace box will project from the wall. Depending on the fireplace model, this projection can be anywhere from 3-5 inches. You want to ask yourself, when you enter the proposed room, will you view the fireplace from the side?
