There is one element of a fireplace (beside fire) that’s fundamental to have if you’re looking to enjoy the complete experience of it, and that, is a fireplace door.
Fireplace doors are not only important because they provide safety but also they can completely change the look of your fireplace and plus, they come in many different sizes, styles and colors. But to choose the right fireplace door for your chimney can be tricky if you don’t have the expertise of California Customs to guide you.
If you want to have an idea of what kind of door you need, here are some traits that will help you through the selection process:
The first thing you need to do is to measure the fireplace opening. There are many types of fireplaces, some of them are rectangular, some are arched, U-shaped, L-shaped, arched in rectangle, etc. and all of them are different, so it is really important for you to properly measure the width and height of the opening because based on these measurements you will get an accurate idea of what you need.
There are different styles of fireplace doors you can choose from. First, there is the bi-fold doors; these type of doors have two panels per section that fold into each other when you open them. Then there are the twin doors, which are actually like your kitchen cabinets, or the type of windows that can be opened in pairs. Another option is to have a free-standing screen, that’s not properly a door, but complies the same purposes as one.
There are many types of finishes for a fireplace door. At California Customs every single detail is custom made, so whether you are looking for a plated, powdered or any other type of finished, we can make it for you.
