View Full Version : How to protect free-standing fireplace?

We have a glass-fronted double-sided fireplace that on the one side is in the family room, and on the other side, the sunroom. It is in the middle of the room--i.e., there are no walls around it to which to secure a gate, because it is next to glass doos that lead from the family room to the sunroom. Does anyone have any suggestions as to how to get a gate around it? Or other means of protection?

It's not cheap, but it would do the trick...

BTW, you likely would need extensions for the Playden as well. Do you use the fireplace? Is your baby interested in it? Before I spent that kind of money, I think I would see if it's going to be an issue. There are a number of things in my house that I thought would be real problems that haven't peaked DS's interest at all. And, other things that I thought would be fine but that require babyproofing. So, I would watch your little one and then assess. You may just be able to latch the doors shut and be fine.
