How do I determine the size of the screen needed for my fireplace?
While many fireplace screens are bought to enhance the beauty of the fireplace and the room if your main purpose for buying a fireplace screen is to keep the sparks out of your room then you need to know how to measure for the correct size screen. Sizing is very important in order for the fireplace screen to do the job it was meant to do.
Single Panel Fireplace Screen - be sure to measure the height and the length of your fireplace opening. Then look for fireplace screens that are 1-2 inches long and taller than the opening. This is to ensure that sparks do not get beyond the screen and into the room.
Folding Panel Fireplace Screens – because these screens fold you need for them to be 10-12 inches wider than the fireplace opening so you can fold them enough to ensure that they do not tip over. You want them to cover the entire opening. Also make sure they are 1 – 3 inches taller than the opening.
Please keep in mind that not all fireplace screens are designed to keep the sparks out of your room. Obviously the decorative screens that do not have any barrier are purely for decoration. Glass fireplace screens can also cause a problem. Some glass fireplace screens are for decoration only because their glass is not tempered. And stained glass fireplace screens are for definitely for decoration only. Just make sure before you buy a fireplace screen that you know why you are buying it (decorative, functional or combination of both) and you know the correct size to get.
