Fire has energy of its own and has always been a necessary element in human life. Building a fire has gone from a necessity to a luxury and with time a decorative fireplace has been proven to have a certain inexplicable quality that brings about a soothing feeling.

Since the Victorian era fireplaces have been used to add a hint of class and sophistication to the home. The decorative fireplace not only provides an effective method of heating but also adds a lot of sentimental value to the house.

It is a traditional concept in most homes that families get together at the decorative fireplace. The children do their homework there as the grandmother rocks on her rocking chair. The mother is busy doing her knitting work and the grandfather and father share a smoke or an evening glass of drink.

Sitting with your loved ones in the warmth of natural fire provides a sense of security and satisfaction that cannot be explained with words. Fire emits a divine energy that helps strengthen bonds and gives rise to sensations that calm the body and are soothing to the mind.

With the advance in technology and the increase in modern gadgets people have forgotten the value of being close to natural elements. These days television has become a common pass time and is making family members distant from each other.

The decorative fireplace is an important instrument in keeping the family closely knit as it provides peace during times of disturbance and warmth on cold days. Heat has always been used for healing pain and driving sorrow away. A fireplace is the perfect way to keep your family together.

Fireplace Screen
Originally fireplace screens where designed with the primary purpose of protecting the area directly in front of the fireplace, helping reduce the risk of fire.

Constructed of materials to withstand the extreme heat produced by a wood-burning fireplace, how they looked was unimportant. Modern fireplace screens incorporate the same safety features but with the added benefit of numerous designs and styles to compliment your home’s décor and serve as much as a piece of decoration as a safety feature.

Ranging from a simple one piece flat black fireplace accessory to hand crafted works of art, fireplace screens incorporate the major trends in home décor. Offering finishing’s in a variety of polishes such as: copper, bronze iron, satin black, polished brass, pewter, antique brass, natural iron, ancient age plus combinations of various materials. Decorative screens can also be manufactured from stained glass and incorporate intricate cuts and designs looking more like a piece of art than fireplace screen.

Not limited to just being a safety accessory, fireplace screens can add realism to your gas or electric fireplace, completing the look you are trying to achieve bringing warmth and beauty to your hearth and home. As a final thought, when selecting your screen make sure the size you select neither over-powers your fireplace distracting from the overall look or that it is too small and looks out of place.
