Choosing the right type of fireplace screen is very important. To do this, you need to consider the design of your fireplace. The screen should not appear out of place. It should match and should look like it is part of the whole thing. Also, you need to consider its size and shape. If you get to see the different pictures of fireplace screens, you will realize that the size and shape is very important. Also consider the material if you want to make sure that the screen is durable.
While other fireplaces & accessories look better when they are clean and shiny, the rustic charm of wrought iron or antique brass cannot be discounted. These metals on fireplace tools and door frames make them virtually maintenance-free because they do not have to be completely shiny to look good. However, these metals have a tendency to heat up, so it is highly recommended that a pair of kitchen mittens be kept nearby in case one has to open the hot doors. As an aid in making a purchase, one should take a picture of the fireplace and hearth, along with the fireplace tools, and take it to the home improvement center. The picture will help the buyer visualize the room and select the right fireplace door to fit the décor.
