Now that we've taken a look at the major considerations when buying a fireplace screen, let's take a quick look into some of the common styles available.
Truly antique fireplace screens are extremely hard to find in modern times, but antique replicas are commonly available. If you're interested in having a geometrically intricate design that catches the eye, you can strongly consider pursuing a screen designed in the Art Deco style.
The Art Deco style of design emerged from France prior to World War 1 and was heavily influenced by several styles that all sought to be modern in appearance. What resulted was a series of highly geometrical designs that emphasize symmetry and contrasting shapes to create dynamic images.
Victorian-era brass work replicas are another way you can add a "classic" appeal to your living spaces. These brass pieces are generally large and feature swirling and looping waves and curls, which catch the eye and soothe the spirit.
Contemporary fireplace screens typically commit to a sleek, refined look that goes along well with modern decors. Contemporary screens add refined elegance to most apartments but fit especially well with decors that focus on clean lines and subtle finishes.
If your home sports a modern and minimalistic look, a black screen in the contemporary style should accent your home quite well.
Scenic fireplace designs often feature references to nature, which are then backed by a metal wire mesh. Designs can feature interlocking branches that add a soft touch, depictions of wildlife and nature scenes, starlit skies and even recurring geometric patterns that fit well into a modern home.
Scenic fireplaces tend to cast interesting shadows and can make for a display of their own in the right circumstance.
