Current-day wood burning stoves come in a plethora of wonderful finishes, styles, and sizes. They are designed with your lifestyle and preferences in mind. Almost all modern wood burning stoves are perfectly designed and stylishly finished to meet the special decor and style preferences of different homeowners. That said when shopping, you can be sure to find a good stove that has an inflection best suited for your home decor and style.
While other fireplaces & accessories look better when they are clean and shiny, the rustic charm of wrought iron or antique brass cannot be discounted. These metals on fireplace tools and door frames make them virtually maintenance-free because they do not have to be completely shiny to look good. However, these metals have a tendency to heat up, so it is highly recommended that a pair of kitchen mittens be kept nearby in case one has to open the hot doors. As an aid in making a purchase, one should take a picture of the fireplace and hearth, along with the fireplace tools, and take it to the home improvement center. The picture will help the buyer visualize the room and select the right fireplace door to fit the décor.
