fireplace doors

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.

Post a picture---there are two basic styles of doors----some go in the face and cover some of the brick

typically run from the floor,up to just above the top of the opening--the are wider than the opening.

The other is made to fit just the opening--those are the pricey ones--

What you need will depend on how the face of the fire place is bricked in.---Mike---

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.
