Having custom fireplace doors made is a great way for you to finish your fireplace, especially if you can’t find any standard sized doors that will fit.
Here are some reasons why having custom made fireplace doors might work for you:
- Arched Fireplace
If you have an arched fireplace, then you know how hard it can be to find a fireplace door that will fit its dimensions. When looking to order a fireplace door, you will want to speak directly to a representative of the company who sells the doors so they can walk you through the process. Be prepared to give them the measurements of your fireplace opening. In addition, the company will send you a clear plastic template that you will tape to the face of your fireplace. Once you have securely taped the template to your fireplace, you will need to trace the opening of the face of your fireplace. This will allow for precise measurements in the assembly of your fireplace doors.
- Stone Fireplace
Stone Fireplaces are timeless. The only downside is that it is difficult to purchase a standard size fireplace doors for them. You can’t just buy a fireplace door that will sit on the face of the fireplace opening; you will need to buy one that installs on the inside of the opening. The installation process is a bit more involved than with a fireplace door that installs on the face of the fireplace. Once you anchor the fireplace door inside the opening, you will have to use mortar to fill in any spaces between the door and the fireplace. It’s a bit more work but the appearance of the fireplace door built into the fireplace is well worth the effort.
- Unconventional Sized Fireplace
Having an unconventional sized fireplace is also another reason why you may need to have custom fireplace doors made. Ordering a custom fireplace door is simple. All you need to do is obtain exact measurements of your fireplace, and send them in to the company you plan on ordering from.
When ordering your custom fireplace doors, you will have many options to choose from. You will have options ranging from metal types to glass colors. No matter the size, shape, or type of fireplace you have, a custom fireplace door can be created just for you!
