Add Beauty To Any Fireplace With A Fireplace Screen
Having a decorative fireplace screen not only adds beauty to your homes interior, but they also provide an important safety barrier as well.
Talk to anyone in the hearth industry and they will all agree, a fireplace screen is a must have item for any fireplace, especially a wood burning fireplace. These types of fireplace accessories give your home a great deal of warmth and ambience.
Naturally, a fireplace screen is first and foremost a safety accessory that helps to protect your home from dangerous sparks and embers that could pop out from the burning logs. It also protects your carpet from getting burn marks, as well as keeping children and pets from reaching into the fire.
A fireplace screen will also guard against a sudden burst of wind that could come through the chimney without warning.
Another popular use for fireplace screens is to decorate your rooms decor. I've seen many custom made fireplace screens that feature hand drawn artwork on them. Others can be specially made to blend in with your rooms colors.
There are fireplace screens in every different design. They can range from an antique design, traditional, or contemporary. They can feature polished brass, chrome, natural iron, copper, and a whole host of other finishes. Your imagination is the limit when it comes time for designs.
Of course, the most basic style of fireplace screen is the black mesh screen built into a copper frame. You can also get multi-paneled glass screens, single glass screens, etc. Have an extremely over-size fireplace? Consider adding a five-panel fireplace screen.
Screens can be purchased as a stand alone item or bought as part of a complete fireplace kit. A fireplace accessory kit will contain the screen, log holder, and complete set of utensils to use in your fireplace.
By having the fireplace screen that you like, you'll give your fireplace that special touch, and make those long days of winter a little more enjoyable.
