Can You Make Your Own Fireplace Door?

Yes! You can make your own fireplace doors...well, sort of!

Making your own fireplace doors can provide a beautiful custom look for your fireplace.  Most fireplaces come with ordinary, commercial, or standard glass doors, but if you want your fireplace to stand out as a work of art, you can choose to make your own fireplace doors. All you need is metal, fire-safe glass, welding equipment, hinges, handles, and a powder-coat finish---just to name a few things.  At this point, you are probably realizing that making glass fireplace doors is NOT a DIY project for the average homeowner. However,  there is a way you can still make your own fireplace doors.

Design your fireplace doors...and let the experts make them.

We can agree that cutting and welding metal may not be your skillset. The good news is that the craftsmen at Stoll Industries are experts in their trade. One of the little-known facts about Stoll fireplace doors is just how customizable they are. In fact, each door has so many options, one style can look totally different from another. To demonstrate this, let's take a deep dive into one of our most popular door styles and see all the ways you can design it to make it your own.
