The opening of our fireplace is 21 inches high and 34 5/8 inches wide. I'm looking to go as cheep as I can.(This will be a rental) The fireplace doors that I've found say they fit 22 to 27 inches high. Is there a way I can make this door work? I can't find anything to fit a smaller opening without going high in price.
The bricks create a flat surface. I am looking for the kind that fits in front of the bricks. My question is that since my opening is smaller (21 in. in Height) than the fireplace doors are built for(22 in. in height) how do I deal with the brick that will be showing through the door. We were thinking of running a metal strip across it to make it look like part of the door system. The other Idea was to paint it black.
