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.
People actually consider buying a screen a good investment because it must be one of the essential parts of the house. Some screen designs include brass, gold and floral designs, classic and modern designs as well as copper finish and scroll designs. It is recommended to see the different kinds of designs available in the market before choosing what you want because you may need to ensure that the design you choose suits your personal preference and perfect for your home. One of the benefits of a fireplace screen is it hides the woods and the ashes inside the fireplace. You do not have to worry about the measurement of your fireplace because screen for the fireplace is available in different shapes and sizes.
Stone materials vary enormously in colour and composition; whether you opt for limestone, granite, marble, cast stone, slate or even a thin stone veneer each have their own unique look and feel. Of all the stone materials, marble is probably the most expensive and difficult to maintain but if you are after a sumptuous elegant look in your living room, it can be the perfect choice. On the other hand if you don’t want to spend huge amounts of money there is always the cheaper alternative of man-made marble. Limestone can be very captivating if you select a neutral colour that will complement almost any interior design while granite, though not so soft, is also a good choice because it needs very little maintenance.
While we were deciding on that particular fireplace, a few others came to mind. A lazy "S" shape and a circle were two that struck us. Each design is perfect for housing a firebox. Set a fake log set inside and burn some gel fuel. You have a completely original fireplace design because it’s custom made with your personality in mind. It’s not hard to use your imagination to come up with completely original home improvement designs. It will make your home say more about who you are and your guests will absolutely appreciate that. People love when they see interesting designs that they haven’t seen anywhere else. It always seems to spark new ideas and get people more into their own home improvement projects. Grandma’s fireplace was certainly beautiful and traditional. I enjoyed sitting there watching television while she rocked in her rocking chair and made blankets out of yarn. But, contemporary times often call for contemporary measures. If every fireplace were the same, the world would be a boring place.
