Fireplace tools are a great way to tie the look of your fireplace in with the decor of your room. A tool set is a great accessory for any type of fireplace, gas or wood burning. And when you're ready for a different look, getting a new set of fireplace tools is the easiest change you can make.
If you have a wood burning fireplace, a good tool set is essential. You need them to manage your fire and keep your fireplace clean. Without them, you wouldn't be able to stoke the fire, move fallen logs or clean the ash out of your fireplace. However, it's important that your fireplace tools are made from good, sturdy material and are kept clean to prevent them from spreading ash and dirt.
There are a lot of different tools available in fireplaces, but there are only a few essential tools that every tools set should have. Every fireplace needs a poker, spades, and tongs to move burning logs and materials around in your fireplace. Bellows help direct air to increase flames. An andiron or fireplace grate lets air flow under your logs to create a healthy, crackling fire. Fireplace brooms let you sweep up ash and keep your firebox clean and neat.
