Screens, Built-ins, and Carvings for Custom Fireplaces
Has this winter renewed your interest in custom fireplaces? If you plan on spending quality time around a blazing hearth, take a look at the options a CustomMade artisan can bring to your remodeling plans: custom fireplace doors, built-in cabinetry for display or storage, and carvings for your fireplace mantel. Keep in mind; a well-designed fireplace, even if you don’t use it for warmth, can make an eye-catching centerpiece for your living room.
Custom fire screens and doors can be practical safeguards and beautiful accents that help your fireplace blend with the overall style of your living room. Imagine the flames dancing behind this hand-forged steel fire screen with flowers and scrolls by Amaral Industries. The steel wire mesh curtains will keep sparks safely contained, and the eye-catching design will frame the glow of the hearth and cast elegant shadows across the room.
David Browne Metal Design created this hand-forged heavy iron custom fire screen with western design elements to harmonize with a client’s rustic living room style. Take a look at the incredible detail in the arrowhead and fletching on the arrow-style door handle.
Built-in cabinetry around your fireplace can help you set a new tone for a room as well as add valuable storage space. Jed Dinger Design took a family room with a fireplace dwarfed by sketchy shelving on either side and transformed it into a beautifully organized space with custom bookcases and a fireplace mantel. The new mantel adds a presence to the fireplace, and the built-in bookcases provide ample and neat display shelves with glass doors as well as concealed storage cabinets.
Custom carvings for your fireplace mantel can add a dramatic, personal touch to your living room décor. Your design and imagery choices are limited only by your imagination and sense of style. Cornerstone Creations, LLC, has hand carved images that range from a lion and grapevine design on a wood mantel to figures from Celtic mythology on limestone fireplace capitals.
