Modern Fireplace Screen Roundup

Modern Fireplace Screen Roundup

Our fireplace was always kind of a dark spot - the tile was a super shiny black, and it felt like it sort of sucked all the light out of the room.  (And it's not that I'm opposed to black fireplaces - it was more the layout of the tile and the shininess of them - like they were leftover from an old bathroom project, and then used for the fireplace surround.  Check out the before here!)  Anyway, I did a quick fix of the tile, which really helped, but I wanted a brighter screen as well to help brighten things up.

(Also - wall color is Teresa's Green by Farrow and Ball.  It's the prettiest, most calming color.  They have Farrow & Ball colors in the system at Sherwin Williams, so you can purchase the colors or get samples there!)

I have been crushing on the one above for awhile, and I finally just went for it, and I love it so much - it really reflects the light in such a pretty way!  The fireplace screen isn't something you might often think about as a piece to transform a room, but I rounded up several modern designs that are also fairly affordable if it's something that might help your space, too - all just in time for the cooler temps that are (hopefully) around the corner as we begin thinking about fall and Christmas mantels!

What do y'all think?  It's such a fun way to brighten up or change up a fireplace without having to do a more expensive overhaul!  Now, I'm ready to put some pumpkins out . . .
