14 Modern Fireplace Screens for Every Budget

Is there anything cozier than cranking up your fireplace on a cold winter's day (or even a cool summer evening)? Whether wood-burning or gas, it's always a good (read: safe) idea to contain the flames with a fireplace screen. Though I love an ornate brass peacock screen as much as the next guy, it's not always simple to find a streamline, contemporary version to coordinate with a more modern room design. We did a little virtual shopping, and came up with these 14 beautiful options.


It doesn't take much to transform the look of a fireplace, and this simple screen, which also comes in pewter, should do just the trick.

Dimensions: 37.4"W x 30.7"H x 7.8"D

Frame material: Powder-coated metal

A mesh screen lets you enjoy the warmth and flow of your fireplace without worrying about little hands getting into places they shouldn't be.

Dimensions: 41"W x 31"H x 0.5"D

Frame material:: Iron/steel

If you like the look of this screen, note that reviews mentioned it's not actually very brass IRL, but rather more of a brown color. At about 17 pounds, it's quite sturdy and large.

Dimensions: 44.09"W x 32.09"H x 6.5"D

Frame material: Iron

Though the style of this screen might read a little less contemporary and a little more old-world, its fish-scale motif would fit in just as beautifully into a traditional space as it would a modern living room.

Dimensions: 39"W x 30.5"H x 8"D

Frame material: Powder-coated iron

I have a pretty well-known affinity with plaid, which normally would feel awfully preppy or classic in styling, but when rendered in iron and zinc, it takes on a distinctively modern appeal.

Geometric designs have a way of feeling familiar yet modern. The antique silver finish on this screen's frame also throws in a glam touch. Note that this won't ship until March 2017, but the wait is probably worth it!
