You just have to know the precise measurement of your fireplace and you can find a fireplace screen that fits. If you are into traditional type, you should go for the metal fireplace screen. Brass, steel, aluminum and iron are some of the most popular metals used in fireplace screen. Most of these metal screens have a mesh screen that helps prevent ash and sparks from flying. You must remember that metal screens can reach extreme temperature so it is best to be cautious and avoid touching them. There are also stained glass types of fireplace screens and these types come with lead and wooden frames.
Selecting an appropriate stone fireplace means picking a design that is right for your home, for instance there is little point in installing a magnificent and huge fireplace which then dwarfs the room, leaving virtually no actual living space. Do also bear in mind also that once installed the stone is not easily changed so it is important to select a stone material that you don’t easily tire of. This said you certainly can’t beat the permanence and illustrious looks of a stone fireplace which can appear as simply a box in your living room with a hanging mantel or with a mantel that has legs fastened on the wall. For large rooms with tall ceilings, a stone mantel can stretch up to the full height of the ceiling and display paintings or even a old tapestries.
