An ode to the classic french fireplace screen
A fireplace screen is necessary to protect people, animals, and the house from the sparks coming off the fire. Finding the perfect beautiful fireplace screen is essential, as you wouldn't want to detract from the beauty of your fireplace with a screen that doesn't complement it.

Ideally, a fireplace screen enhances the charm of the fireplace. We have found the best fireplace screens for you, specifically the traditional decorative French fireplace screen, which adds elegance to wood-burning open fireplaces, gas fireplaces, and electric fireplaces.

Different sizes available
The newly made fire screen comes in various sizes and is always black. It can have between 2 to 6 panels and comes in several heights. While it cannot be custom-made, its available variations make it suitable for most fireplaces, including corner designs. Contrary to popular belief, covering the entire height of the fireplace's interior is almost never necessary. A height of 50 cm (19.6 inches) is usually enough if you're burning a calm fire with dry, suitable wood. Also read: How big should a fireplace screen be?
