What fireplace accessories do I need?


If you have small children, or just want to avoid any potential danger around your fireplace, a fireplace screen is a great way to keep sparks from coming out of your fireplace, and small fingers from going in. While it's mainly a safety feature, it can work wonders as a decorative accent. Try a more traditional screen with metalwork on its exterior, or take a look at the more simple and modern styles that use glass or sheer screen to avoid obstructing the cozy view. A log rack can help provide an attractive place to store some logs conveniently (so you won't have to go trudging out in bitter winter weather to get some), while an andiron in a unique design is a fun way to keep your logs in place while they're burning. It goes without saying that all of these items should be made out of a fireproof material. Triple check to make sure that what you're purchasing has been tested and safety rated!

What about a portable fireplace?


Try a portable fireplace if you don't have a fireplace in your home already. These playful designs often come in a super modern aesthetic. Best of all, many of these portable fireplaces are ventless, which provides a natural sense of warmth and light without any of the clean up or maintenance of a standard fireplace.
