How To Choose Screens For Custom Fireplaces
A beautiful custom fireplace adds romantic charm, rustic appeal, and sophistication appealing to future homebuyers and guests. They warm a room while offering a centerpiece to gather around with family and friends to relax and enjoy. Custom fireplaces give you the option of creating an eye-catching piece to match the rustic or elegant style in your home.
If your fireplace is not enclosed, it’s important to create a barrier between the fire and your living room with fireplace screens. With custom fireplaces, you want to avoid choosing just any screen. You need a screen to fit unique measurements and add to the appeal of your fireplace. Consider these tips on choosing a screen for your fireplace.
Measure The Right Size
When choosing custom screens, accurate measurements will ensure your screen isn’t too large or too small for your fireplace. Use a tape measure to measure the width of your fireplace at the opening on the top and bottom. Continue by measuring the length of both sides. Always choose the larger measurement if they differ.
Arched fireplaces should be measured just as a square or rectangle opening, but include measurements for both sides as well as the top of the arch. Custom screens can be designed to fit any size opening.
Choose A Custom Design
This is the fun part. A fireplace screen can be designed to create an additional piece of art in your living room. You have the option of choosing moveable screens or adding screen doors to your fireplace for added convenience and an extra level of protection for children or pets.
