If you have small children, you want to consider adding a fireplace screen that is also a fireplace child gate. These screens have optional panels that can extend the screen so that it circles the fireplace. There’s a heavy-duty gate with a childproof latch on it that allows you to tend to the fire. One of the great things about this gate is that it works well with either a built-in fireplace or a wood stove.
