While fireplaces accentuate the largeness of a room, the rooms do not all come in one size. For smaller rooms, like a childs bedroom, fireplaces were sometimes built in the corner of the room to exploit the space there. In fact, it is now easier to install a new fire place in the corner of a room because the fireplace walls could be tapered exactly just so in order to reflect the heat more efficiently into the room. A corner fireplace door is somewhat smaller than an ordinary fireplace door. They usually come in the traditional accordion-type frame because of the limited space offered by the walls. In choosing a fireplace door from the rack, the purchaser has to ensure that the door is big enough to cover the widest area of the fireplace opening without covering the whole mantle design. The door should overlap the whole fireplace opening in order to serve its purpose, but should not keep the fireplace itself from being seen and admired.
If you decide that sitting next to the fireplace is the way to go, you will need to make sure you have enough chimney rods to span the entire length of your chimney. As you are sitting next to your fireplace, push your brush up through the flue. Continue to add more brush rods as needed until the brush is at the top of the chimney. As you pull the brush back down, you will need to make a back and forth motion to really scrub the creosote off the walls of the chimney. Be sure to shield your eyes, as some of this loosened creosote may fall into the firebox.
5. Put Your Fireplace Candelabra on Your Mantel - For those of us who have gas or electric fireplaces, and do not wish to remove the fake logs during the warm season, consider placing a candelabrum or two on your mantel. This is actually a very classic way of decorating your fireplace. Use fireplace candelabra that are made for smaller fireplaces or zero clearance fireplaces. 6. Put Your Fireplace Candelabra on Your Hearth - If you do not have a mantel, you can place your fireplace candelabra on your hearth just as easily. Be sure to add a little greenery in the spring, maybe a sting of fall leaves in the autumn and some pine needles and cones in the winter for an added special touch.
4. Take Your Fireplace Candelabra Outside - Candelabra made for your fireplace are usually pretty sturdy. They are generally made out of wrought-iron or some other very durable material. This makes them ideal for use outside. Try using your fireplace candelabra as a centerpiece on your patio table. If you have a long picnic table, you can use a candelabrum that is designed for a smaller fireplace. How about using a couple candelabra to decorate either side of your front door, or back door? If you are worried about your candles blowing out from gusts of wind, you can use votive candles surrounded by glass, but your candelabra cannot have center pins for this to work.
