7. Use Your Fireplace Candelabra as a Dining Room Table Centerpiece - What if you do not own a fireplace? You can still find great uses for these versatile home décor items. They work great as a centerpiece on your dining room table. Just place some elegant tapered candles on them and add a few sprigs of greenery and you have a beautiful centerpiece in minutes that looks like it took hours to create. This is also a great way to use your fireplace candelabra during the winter months when you are actually using your fireplace for a warm fire. 8. Create Ambiance With Scented Candles - To create a calm and relaxing atmosphere in your home, you can add lavender or vanilla scented candles to your fireplace candelabra. If you want a romantic mood, try a little sandalwood or jasmine scent. For a warm, homey feel, you could use apple and cinnamon. Virtually any mood can be enhanced by a little aromatherapy. Be creative and have fun.
The Purpose of the Fireplace There are different reasons as to why you would need an electric fireplace and one of them can be to warm a living room or a particular room in the house. Therefore, chances are that you could end up having to choose between an electric heater and an electric fireplace. The truth is that both are quite demanding when it comes to electricity consumption and most the time, you cannot rely on an electric fireplace as a main source of heat. In fact, there are no assurances that the fireplace will increase the value of any home. In other words, electric fireplaces can have the best aesthetic value to any home whereby you can still use it to mimic the traditional fireplace without having it warm up the house. On the other hand, you also need to weigh the effectiveness of having such equipment in your home.

Once you have removed all the dirt and soot, you may decide to add an extra sparkle to your freshly cleaned fireplace tools. You can do this by polishing with a brass polisher. Follow all label instructions and warnings when applying this to your tools. You can now enjoy your clean fireplace for the rest of the season, without worrying about flying dust or ash or about a dangerous creosote fire breaking out in the fireplace. Do not forget to close the flue to prevent any drafts and to keep your firebox free from debris. Decorating your fireplace is a pleasure once it is all clean. The fun part is deciding what you will use. How about creating a fresh look for your fireplace by getting a new fireplace screen? There are so many options out there as far as design and style. Some of my favorites are single panel fireplace screens. With a single panel fireplace screen, you do not need to have much room on your hearth. Because it is a flat fireplace screen, it can sit right up against the firebox and takes up very little precious space. As for the design, how about adding the fresh look of spring with a leaf fireplace screen? If you really love that look, you can even get a matching leaf fireplace tool set and log holder to go with it!
