It gets cold in the room, and it's really frustrating. I have a wood burning fireplace, and I'm probably one of the last people out there to have one. Many are switching over to gas due to the money it saves, and the positive effect on the environment as logs aren't being burned. I just bought my first fireplace blower and lit up my first fire last week. Man, does it ever make a difference! I can't believe I've gone all these years without one.
Modern fireplace tools in contrast to antique fireplace tools might be compared no more than when they were made. However modern or up to date fireplace tools sets can have a utilitarian and decorative effect on a home hearth. While cast iron tool sets were common, new metals and finishes are in the marketplace. A tool set still consists of a poker, shovel, brush, log mover and tool stand. There might be some variants like combining a log holder and tools on one stand.
