Decorative Fireplace Covers

Decorative fireplace covers can be a wonderful addition to your   room decor.  Whether the fireplace is   in your living room, family room, study, library or bedroom, a beautiful   screen or glass front can make your fireplace even more   beautiful.

Tame fire and keep it in place

A good fireplace cover is an excellent way to keep your beautiful   hearth fire from becoming a bad master and not a good servant – to destroy   the old aphorism.  A wood fire in a   sophisticated fireplace forms an incomparable focal point.  It mixes picture, sound and aroma to create   an ambience that is only possible with a real wood fire.  Unfortunately, it also produces ash, smoke   and, if the wood bursts, the occasional flying coal.  A good cover can keep your log fire in   place – and there’s no reason at all not to make it beautiful while you’re at   it.

Fire screens

Fire protection makes a significant contribution to keeping your   log fire behind the fire dogs.  The   small net prevents large chunks of living coal from popping out of the   fireplace, while the wonderful aroma of burning wood permeates the room.  Most fire screens can be folded or pushed   aside for activities like popping corn, roasting marshmallows or wieners, or   even the occasional baking of apples.    Not all fireplaces are big enough to hold a tea kettle or Dutch stove,   but some are – which can enhance the ambient aroma.  Rolled iron plates with wire mesh are a   great choice and wonderfully decorative.    Sieve grids can, however, also be attached to guides and pushed over   the chimney opening.

Glass doors

Glass fire doors are just as decorative and practical.  Not only do they hold back sparks, but they   also help control smoke and ash.  Their   use sacrifices some of the flavor and possibly some of the open cooking   options, but still preserves the beauty and practicality of an open fire in   your home.  Glass is an excellent   medium for baked designs.  Fire   protection grilles and fire protection doors are ideal as decorative covers   for your fireplace.  They improve the   ability to act as the focal point for a room, while also making a reliable   contribution to keeping sparks and ashes in their place.  Here are ten examples of decorative   fireplace covers to admire or consider.

The three panel fire   screen

Haverhill makes a charming three-part fire protection.  Soft wrought iron arches encircle the   chimney opening, and the sturdy mesh allows visibility, sound, and aroma,   while the crackles, crackles, and pops stay in place.  Suitable for wood fires and gas blocks,   does not require extensive installation.    Just unfold and set up so you can go to work.

Single panel fire   screen

A flat, one-piece fire protection sits flush with the chimney   opening.  Angle iron style legs are   used to support the plate.  Plow &   Hearth has four models of this fire protection type.  Two combine the graceful domed top with   scrollwork, the third features a pattern of geometric metal.  The fourth is a beautiful sheet of metal   and glass with sliding doors in the middle.

Posh three panel   fireplace screen

If you are looking for a classy screen, you will love the   three-part fireplace screen from Willa Arlo Interiors Roberson.  It’s easy to set up.  Simply unfold the sides and place the   screen in front of your fireplace.    Cleaning up is a breeze too.    Simply wipe the rich, gold-colored metal with a cloth.  Its looks are stunning and it does the   job.

Beauty and easy   access

From Plow & Hearth comes a beautiful flat screen with two   doors and a graceful flower pattern.    The outer frame holds the glass and metal patterned panels in place,   while two doors provide easy access to the fire for taking care of – or   toasting a bit of bread if you wish.    If you love elegance with functionality, this is your fire   protection.

Opulent   stained glass fireplace screen

Bring the opulence of a cathedral window to your fireplace with a   three-piece stained glass fireplace screen from River of Goods.  It’s sure to be a conversation piece and an   eye catcher for your room.  Handcrafted   from 239 cut pieces of glass and welded together using the Louis Comfort   Tiffany method, it’s an ideal piece for Victorian decor.

Tree of Life   Fireplace Screen

Imagine campfires flickering among ancient oak trees or gaze at   the mysterious shadows of Yggdrasil as your fire burns brightly behind this   flat screen.  A single door opens for   easy fire fighting.  Easy to set up,   with feet angled to hold it up, and easy to clean, however, speaks for   atavistic memories of lost legends.

Rich simplicity

Enjoy easy set up and management with the Cole & Gray single   sided fireplace screen.  A gold colored   textured tin in a simple, repeating pattern of four pointed stars supported   by an iron frame is charming without being ostentatious.  The price is modest too, making it an   affordable choice for budget-conscious households, but functionality isn’t   sacrificed on the altar of economy.

Single panel   glass fireplace screen

Enjoy a charming, modern design made of tubular steel, black mesh   and glass to avoid drafts and keep your log fire at bay.  The flickering flames behind the glass   enhance the appearance of the screen.    Central hinged doors allow easy access to the fire so your fireplace   is both safe and beautiful.

Foldable   fireplace screen with four fields

If you have a large fireplace or one with an irregular shape, the   four-section fireplace screen from Uniflame Corporation might interest you.  Made of polished brass with upper arches   and ornate hinge tops, it has a subtle elegance that wouldn’t look out of   place with any decor.  In addition,   there is a modest price for the budget conscious.

Understated   elegance with easy maintenance

If you love unobtrusive elegance with easy maintenance of your   fireplace, you will love the small fireplace screen from Plow &   Hearth.  The net is held in place with   graceful iron scrollwork, held together by a sturdy black iron frame that   contains the two doors.  The whole   thing is held in place by angle irons with curly toes that add their own   decorative element.
