Stained glass fireplace screens can add a new look to a tired out fireplace. Their beauty is timeless and lasts throughout the season. Among my favorites are the Wisteria Stained Glass Fireplace Screen, the Dragonfly/Flower Stained Glass Fireplace Screen, the Iris Stained Glass Fireplace Screen and the Roses Trellis Stained Glass Fireplace Screen. All of these remind me of spring and the wonderful colors that sprout up in this beautiful season. If you are partial to brass, you can find a new brass fireplace screen that will make that fireplace really beautiful this season. The choices are endless when it comes to brass, because this is such a popular and durable material for fireplaces. You really cannot go wrong with a brass fireplace screen!
The Corner Fireplace Traditionally, fireplaces go in the center of the wall. But, we have evolved into forward thinking visionaries. We are no longer limited by the way things have always been. We put fireplaces in the corner. With a fireplace insert and some building supplies, you can have a fireplace that is more unique than the one your best friend has. You can either learn how to do it yourself, because it is completely safe when you use a fireplace insert with gel fuel, or you can ask a friend of yours to help you. Its that easy. Middle of the Room Why have it along the wall? Why have it in the corner, even though that is a great idea? Why not put a fireplace in the middle of the room? You hardly need any supplies from the hardware store. Build a simple brick or rock structure for your fireplace insert and you have the neatest indoor fireplace you have ever seen.
Prefabricated Fireplaces Prefabricated fireplaces, also known as zero-clearance fireplaces, are highly insulated, so they can be installed within an inch of combustible materials, such as wall framing. They are preferred in new construction because theyre much lighter in weight, are faster and easier to install than standard masonry units, and are energy-efficient. Many newer prefabricated fireplaces are prefabricated from metal and installed in wood-frame walls. They generally have a metal shell and a realistic brick-lined firebox. Wood Stoves A wood stove is essentially a metal container for a fire. Made from cast iron or brick-lined, welded plate steel, a wood stove has an inlet for combustion air and an outlet for combustion gases, or smoke. Most modern wood stoves are airtight and allow the amount of combustion air that feeds the flame to be controlled. This control allows a wood stove to burn far more efficiently than a traditional open fireplace.
The flat screen fire-screen can be made of one, two, three or four panels. It might fold up neatly when not in use or may be so aesthetically pleasing that hiding it is undesirable. While a fire-screen serves a clearly defined use-value when used in conjunction with a wood-burning fireplace most homeowners who own gas log fireplaces also use fire-screens. The fire-screen serves as an obstruction to children and pets but is often purchased for its decorative qualities. Fitting a fireplace screen such as the flat panel variety may be relatively easy, as they are not designed to fit flush to the fireplace and can easily over-lap the fireplace width and still look attractive and serve the function of containing sparks on one side and fingers on the other. Not all older brick or cement fireplaces are of a consistent size because most of these fireplaces are built on site as custom designs. While newer fireplace designs are fitted around a standardized firebox, older fireplaces were built custom on site. Newer fireplaces that are customized inside the home use a steel firebox with insulation, heat shields and fire brick already installed. The fire box can be built into a mantle or into a wall of the home with little to no safety features necessary for full functionality.
