Your fireplace brings warmth to you and your family during the colder fall and winter months, but having a fireplace is also a great way to add warmth to your home’s ambiance. However, your fireplace can’t do it all on its own. Your fireplace says a lot about your home’s style and the way you accessorize your fireplace should do the same. At Northeastern Fireplace and Design, we offer a wide variety of hearth accessories that can add the perfect accent to that cozy look that you are trying to bring into your home’s living areas. We even offer many accessories in the form of tools, decorations, and, in most cases, a combination of both!

Tools and Accessoriesfireplace with mantel and fireplace accessory tools

A lot of homeowners who have a fireplace probably already own some of the essential tools needed to use a fireplace. This would include things like a toolset, andirons, and wood holders. However, there are many fireplace accessories that can make owning a fireplace easier and brighten up your home’s decor at the same time. At Northeastern Fireplace and Design, we want to make sure our customers have access to all the accessories out there that are available to fireplace owners. That is why we make sure that we keep a wide variety of decorative and functional tools and accessories on hand. Below are some of the lesser-known accessories that we carry:

Mantel Shelves

A mantel shelf is a perfect way to accent your hearth. It basically is a shelf that attaches to your hearth, allowing you to display trinkets, photos, or other decorations above your fireplace. It even makes a great place to hang your stockings during the holiday season.


A fireback is a cast iron plate that sits in the back of your fireplace, behind the fire. It works by deflecting some of the heat produced by your fire back into the living area, giving you a more efficient fire. They are often cast with different designs on them, adding a touch of elegance to your fireplace.

Grate Heaters

Grate heaters turn your wood grate into a home heating system. This is done by turning your grate into a set of hollow tubes which cooler air is drawn into, heated up by your fire, and then blown back into your living area. In fact, grate heaters can produce up to 45,000 BTUs of heat, enough to heat a large room!

Other Accessories

These aren’t the only accessories that we offer. We also offer a wide variety of other accessories including lucky hearth crickets, firestarters, toolsets, hearth rugs, and trivets, just to name a few.
