As a parent to a newborn, you'll likely be quite paranoid about the safety of your child. You'll go to great lengths to ensure that your home is a safe environment for your baby by making sure they have a comfy and safe place to sleep, plenty of safe toys to keep them busy, and a designated and controlled area in which they can play.

Sometimes, finding that space where you can keep a keen eye on your baby can be difficult. It is then that you might want to consider getting a baby gate or building a baby gate to help you essentially cordon off areas of safety. Here are some of the best baby gates for fireplaces available online.

Baby Gates For Fireplaces Reviews


Bonnlo 120.5-Inch Metal Fireplace Fence Guard 5-Panel Baby Safety Gate/Barrier/Play Yard with Door Christmas Tree Fence Hearth Gate for Kids/Pet/Toddler/Dog/Cat, Black

The next option we see is a five-panel option that is designed for easy configuration to match whatever needs you might have.


This versatile fence set is an excellent option for those looking for a customizable option, much like the KINGSO, but on a budget. Cheaper than the other options, the price in no way affects the quality, as it is surprisingly well-made for its price range. The individual gates are detachable from one another, and they can be adjusted to fit anywhere in the house, such as the fireplace, a child's room, or even the yard.

The five sections can be adjusted to work together to create a pentagon shape for a fully-enclosed section, or they could be placed against the wall to create a barrier to keep your kid in one section of the house. The fencing is made entirely of steel for a durable frame that is quite tall, and even works with pets.

One of the most significant issues we've found is in the gate and fence's actual construction. The different parts are very roughly hewn and can be challenging to put together, with the beams and sockets matching up in a very particular manner.


Durable, all-steel design
Inexpensive option
Adjustable and versatile


Roughly hewn parts
Difficult to construct


Toddleroo by North States 3-in-1 Wood Superyard: 151' Long Extra Wide Baby gate, Barrier or Play Yard. Hardware or freestanding. 6 Panels, 10 sq.ft. Enclosure (30' Tall, Stained Wood)

This more rustic design for a baby gate has a gorgeous design that is perfect for those who want a more natural feel to their baby fencing.


Our most expensive option, this "Wood Superyard" is an expansive six-panel fencing that can act as a portable playpen, too. The panels are all configurable to match any shape you require, and the fencing comes with a mounting kit that accommodates modern homes with extra-tall baseboards and angled walls. The panels are extendable and can be easily folded for better storage.

Any issues with this gate are primarily with quality control. The gates often arrive with parts not adequately attached, so grabbing them in a certain way can, for example, cause the poles to fall out.


Rustic design
Configurable with an accommodating installation kit
Easily folded and stored


Often falls apart when held in some ways


Costzon Baby Safety Gate, 115 Inch Length 5 Panel Adjustable Wide Fireplace Fence, BBQ Metal Fire Gate, Pet Isolation Fence with Walk-Through Door, Freestanding Pets Gate (White, Medium)

Our last baby gate is a middle-of-the-road option that takes a nice modern approach to its design.


Constructed with a steel and plastic design, this gate has a durable lock and design that will serve you well throughout your child's toddler years. It's excellent for cordoning off hot and unsafe places, like fireplaces and kitchen stoves, and it uses a freestanding design to create a hexagonal baby cage.

There are two main concerns with its design, namely the lack of wall brackets or mounting kits and an often faulty pivot rod that can cause the door to fall off.


Durable design
Freestanding design for easy setup
Steel and plastic design is sleek and modern


No mounting kits or bracket
Often faulty pivot rod


If you are looking for something stylish the North States 3 in 1 Wood Superyard is the perfect choice but if you need something extra wide I would go with Bonnlo Metal Fireplace Fence Guard.
