A fireplace screen must foremost prevent sparks from escaping the fireplace. But it should be acknowledged that it becomes the focal point of the fireplace just as the fireplace is the focal point of the room. It needs to have sufficient decorative interest to help make the fireplace attractive without the fire burning, as is most often the case.
