How do I tell which fireplace accessories I need?
The fireplace accessories that you will need for your home may depend on the type of environment you wish to create. If you have small children, you will want to use a fireplace screen or install fireplace glass doors to keep the little ones away from sparks and the heat of the flames of a wood burning fireplace. A fireplace screen also works well to decorate the space and shield a fireplace when not in use. Fireplace screens come in many different designs and sizes to match any space. The screen can be made of metal to obstruct the view or take on a glass or sheer appearance to protect the area around the fire, but still allow for the movement and bright flames of the fire to be seen.
Other options for keeping your hearth organized include a log rack to stack cut logs before they go into the fire or an andiron to keep your logs in place while they are crackling in the fire. There are low-cost fireplace accessories for every purpose including accessories available purely for decoration. Just make sure that whatever you choose, it comes in a fireproof design. It is critical that each accessory has been tested and safety rated!
