If you have a traditional wood-burning fireplace in your home, a fireplace screen is an essential element. These panels provide both aesthetic value and serve a practical purpose. Browse for decorative fire screens from Pottery Barn to complete your modern or traditional hearth.
What is a Fire Screen?
A fire screen is a single panel or set of doors that sits in front of the fireplace. They're typically used with traditional wood-burning fireplaces, acting as an extra layer to catch stray sparks or embers and as a barrier to prevent pets from getting too close to the flames. They'll also help you hide a messy fireplace area from guests if you forget to sweep the hearth. If you have a gas or electric fireplace, you can still use these screens as a purely decorative element to make a modern hearth seem more realistic, along with an ornamental log holder and set of fireplace tools.
Decorative Screen Options
The fire screens at Pottery Barn come in a wide range of style options to complement the decor in your living spaces. For modern rooms, look for sleek screens crafted of glass and metal, with brass or silver finishes available. Add glass candleholders and decorative objects made of metal to the mantel to tie the look together.
A traditional-style fireplace screen typically features a sturdy metal frame with a mesh insert. The frame comes in finishes like vintage iron, brass and polished nickel. These screens also often include ornamental detailing along the front and delicate arched tops to add decorative appeal. Lean a rustic blanket ladder on the wall or place a woven basket filled with soft throw blankets nearby to complete the cozy atmosphere.
Shop for a fireplace screen at Pottery Barn to use as a protective layer for your wood-burning fireplace. Choose from a wide selection of modern glass or traditional metal panels to prevent any sparks or embers from escaping your hearth and make the fireplace area look more polished. If you have a gas or electric fireplace, consider adding a screen and other classic fireplace tools to decorate the space and make it feel more like a traditional wood-burning fireplace.
