How to Keep your Lounge Clean When You Have A Fireplace
One of the most common concerns of homeowners with fireplaces is the mess they can make on the carpet. However, you’ll be pleased to know that there is a selection of fireside accessories available to you that can keep the mess to a minimum whilst allowing you to use your fireplace time and time again.
Here are the products we recommend to keep your carpet clean whilst also improving the appearance of your fireplace:
Heath saver - we all know that fireplaces and stoves are a stunning and comforting addition to any home. However, when it comes to loading and unloading fuels and ashes, you need to be careful or else you’ll end up with a mess.
Heath savers are a useful fireside accessory that can not only make ash clearing easier, but they can also improve the appearance of your fireplace. Simply pop one of these in front of your stove and let it catch any cinders and hot ash whilst looking gorgeous. When it comes to emptying the ash, all you need to do is pick it up and tip out the waste. So easy yet so effective.
At Mood Living, we also offer multiple designs of heath savers so you can find the perfect one to match with your living room theme or match with the latest interior trends.
Ash carrier - if you own a fireplace, then you’ll know the all too common problem of having to remove all the ash that accumulates over time. More often than not, people will just shovel up the ash and put it in a plastic bag to dispose of, but this isn’t the best way to go about it as the ash will just spill out all over your lovely carpet.
Instead, use reliable fireside accessories such as ash carriers to make your life easier whilst reducing the mess made to your lounge. These shovels are so easy to use and they can ensure the mess is kept to a minimum. Simply scoop up the ashes and put them in the ash carrier to safely transport ashes to the waste without the risk of any escaping onto your carpets.
Fireguard - fire guards are not only useful fireside accessories, but they can also add something a little extra to your fireplace. Available in an array of designs ranging from the simple to the elaborate, fireguards can keep wondering pets and children from approaching the out-of-use fireplace and spreading ash and soot around your lounge.
Effective and Attractive Storage Solutions
Are you struggling to find attractive yet effective ways to store the different types of fuel you use for your stove or fireplace? If so, they are fireside accessories that can tick both of these boxes:
Coal bucket - we have a selection of gorgeous coal buckets that can store large quantities of coal for your fireplace whilst also adding a rustic and attractive appearance to your fireplace display. Featuring top and side handles for easy carrying, powder-coated black finish for easy cleaning and stylish designs, you can wave goodbye to using rusty old buckets to store your coal.
Metal briquette bin - are you struggling to keep your fireplace neat and tidy? If so, this fireside accessory is the perfect addition to your home. With the capacity to hold one bale of briquettes, this practical yet stylish metal briquette bin can make your fireplace look tidier and more attractive than ever.
Fireplace Maintenance Made Easy
Let's face it, fireplaces are a beautiful addition to any home. However, without proper care and maintenance, they can slowly start to look a little lacklustre and without the proper fireside accessories, cleaning your fireplace becomes one of those chores you keep putting off.
Coal shovels, whilst a simple fireside accessory, can actually solve your fireplace maintenance problems and make it quicker and even more enjoyable experience. With a nice deep shovel, you can get large scoops of ash out of your fireplace in one go, which can feel super satisfying, especially for cleaning enthusiasts! The raised edges will also prevent any spillage, so your cleaning duties don’t have to involve cleaning up after yourself.
Better yet, these shovels come in a clean and classic design, perfectly blending in with your other fireside accessories and look great propped up against your fireplace for a rustic appearance.
Boost the Performance of your Fireplace
It's time to amplify the performance of your fireplace. But how? Grate savers are fantastic fireside accessories that can not only reduce your fuel bill but also increase the heat output of your fire.
All you need to do with your grate saver is place it in the centre of your grate to prolong the life of your fire gate whilst also increasing the performance of your fireplace. This is an absolute must for those chilly nights where you need your fire to heat up your entire living room and keep your family cosy and warm.
