If you have recently moved into a home with a fireplace, then you may very well be chomping at the bit to try it out.  No one can blame you because a hearth creates a warm and inviting ambiance in your home and nothing is more relaxing than sitting back and just watching the flames.  But before you load logs into the hearth, you need to make sure that you have some fireplace hearth tools to help tend the fire while also complementing your existing décor.

A set of fireplace tools needs to include at least a shovel, broom, and a poker.  You have to keep the hearth area clear of ash because this will suffocate fires and make it very difficult to keep a good blaze going.  The poker is used to help move logs about so that the wood can burn more evenly.  Without these fundamental tools, you will not be able to effectively manage or maintain a fire.

Aside from these functional aspects, you will also want to consider buying a set of tools that complements your décor and the other hearth accessories like you fireplace screen or log holder.  Your tools and the other hearth accessories should have matching finishes in order to unify the hearth décor and create a compelling decorative effect.  However, you will need to keep the overall style of your home and the other furnishings in mind as well when making a purchase.

Rustic fireplace tools are ideal for a cottage, lodge, or just a more casual type of décor.  These tools will most likely feature wrought iron construction and will simply accentuate the surrounding décor.  Brass fireplace tool sets, on the other hand, would perhaps be more suited to a Traditional, Mission, or perhaps even a Victorian décor.  Stainless steel is a great accent to a more modern or contemporary décor.

It is very important to remember that these tools will be exposed to extreme temperatures and caustic materials like ash and soot.  Therefore, it is better to invest more in a quality made set of tools rather than having to purchase a new set every other season.  The initial investment will certainly be more substantial than for a lesser quality set but should actually prove more cost effective in the long run.

Indeed, fireplace tools are the most fundamental of hearth accessories but they can enhance the overall look and feel of the entire room when they properly coordinate with the surrounding décor and overall style of the home itself.  All hearth accessories, including the tools themselves, should all have the same finish and be of the same overall style.  By paying attention to the details, you will greatly enhance the hearth décor and ultimately increase your satisfaction whenever you decide to toss some logs into the fireplace and enjoy a nice evening just staring at the fire!
