A hanging fireplace screen is the simplest way to protect against wayward sparks. However, with the use of decorative castings, a hanging screen can become picturesque. By thinking of a hanging screen as the frame to the dancing art of the fire within it, you can go a long way in transforming your fireplace from dull to dramatic.
Design Hint: Don’t think a black screen with black attachment bars will just fade away. Instead it accentuates the darkness of the opening. Consider a textured bar of another finish for the screen frame to better complement your fireplace. See more examples of custom hanging screens in our “INSPIRATIONS” section.
