Fireplace screens provide both increased safety and a touch of style. Fireplace screens are one of the focal points of fireplaces. When people look at a stove that has a friendly, warm, crackling fire in it, chances are they’ll notice the fireplace screen as well.
Since fireplace screens are what we look through to view a crackling fire, the type of fireplace screen that you choose can make a lasting impression. Should you want a wrought iron fireplace screen, or perhaps a low profile fireplace screen constructed of tempered glass with metal along the base? With all the various fireplace screens from which to choose, your imagination is the only limiting factor.
For a contemporary look, why not try a Bebop fireplace screen? This stylish and modern fireplace screen features glass and steel materials. The glass is all that you see as the metal is only along the base portion to affix the screen to your hearth. The glass swoops up in gentle curves and will not detract from the fire one bit.
For something a little more traditional, how about a black twisted rod fireplace screen? This lovely fireplace screen is made from wrought iron and features simple colonial design. It is one of the most popular and standard types of fireplace screens.
For a little flair on the traditional fireplace screen, why not try chrome and black fireplace screen. This lovely fireplace screen has three portions; the sides leave of which are made from chrome, while the center portion is a beautiful mesh screen.
For something a little more streamlined, take a look at the single panel, curved fireplace screens. These come in chrome, pewter and other types of materials as well. It is the type of fireplace screen that I have in my home. I love it because it doesn’t take away from the enjoyment of the fire.
Now, for something unique, there are even Japanese screen fireplace screens. Of course, these are slightly different in that they a not intended to a user while a fire is going, yet can make a beautiful decorative area out of your fireplace when there is no fire burning.
There are combination fireplace screens that feature places to hang your fireplace tools on the side panels of the screen. It makes an excellent gift for anyone with a new fireplace. You get a fireplace screen and a full set of fireplace tools, all in one. This piece retails for around $160. For a complete game, that price really can’t be beaten.
