The Importance of Hearth Products
When thinking about your fireplace, we often forget the purpose of the fireplace surrounding called the hearth. The floor or ledge on your fireplace that extends into the room, as well as the wall around and above the fireplace is called the hearth. Fireplace hearths serve an important purpose as well as draw attention to the fireplace as a focal point in the room. The following will inform you on the value of fireplace hearth design.
Purpose of Fireplace Hearth
Hearth products were created to serve more of a purpose than strictly a decorative element, they provide a safer fireplace area, and prevent fire hazards. The floor of the fireplace extending into the room is there to prevent burning embers or logs from falling onto your floor and damaging it or even causing a fire. They are most helpful with wood fireplaces and stoves as they not only protect from ash and embers; it is an area where you can place your fireplace tools that you need to use regularly, or even store wood. Hearth areas also create clearance in your room giving a safe distance to stand, or place furniture away from the firebox. The outline of the hearth will also help you to recognize a safe area to place a barrier to prevent children or guests from touching the firebox glass. Fireplace hearths and hearth products are made from non-combustible material, such as stone, brick, or marble.
