Or spruce up your firebox and give it a little flare! Remove your fireplace screen, andirons and fireplace grate and replace them with beautiful fireplace candelabra. It sits right inside your fireplace where the fireplace grate normally sits. You can light the candles for a romantic evening glow without the heat of a full fire, or just leave them unlit and enjoy the beauty of the candelabra on its own. Decorate your mantel with some freshly picked spring flowers, like tulips or daffodils. Make it simple. You only need a few flowers carefully arranged in a nice glass vase to make a fresh and bold statement. Enjoy your fireplace year round, not just during the winter. It is a beautiful addition to your home that should not be forgotten! Have fun making your fireplace an inviting area to gather around, even without a roaring fire. Think outside the "fire"box!
While these screens will not stop a rolling log they will protect areas outside the hearth from flying sparks from popping wood sap. One of the greatest advantages to mesh screens is that they require no extra space or braces and do not extend past the flush face of the fireplace. Another very common type of fireplace screen is made of iron, brass or steel and mounts in front of or on the hearth free-standing in front of the firebox. These fireplace screens can be a simple flat screen, might be free standing on leg-brackets and could be the more common three-sided screen. Three-sided screens have a center section that spans the width of the fireplace. The two sides are hinged to turn at a thirty to forty-five degree angle thus holding the screen plum straight up. The fireplace screen can have fireplace tools, candles and all manner of artistic décor built into the design.
Spring is finally here. Yeah! So now the fireplace season is winding down. But do not think that means that your fireplace must therefore go unused during the warmer months. Quite the opposite! Keeping your fireplace as the centerpiece of your home is easy. But first there is a little spring cleaning to be done, before we can get to the fun decorating. First order of business is to take care of that chimney. Cleaning your chimney thoroughly is one of the most important things you can do to keep your fireplace clean and safe. Make sure there is no creosote build-up in your chimney. If the creosote builds up, there is a chance that it will catch fire and since creosote burns at an extremely high temperature, it is a very dangerous and fast burning fire.
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!
