Historically, in the absence of central heating systems, fireplaces were used to warm a room and to keep its occupants from freezing in cold weather. With the invention of modern heating technology, fireplaces have become more about ambiance, decoration, and relaxation than heating a room. Many homeowners have chosen to discontinue use of their fireplace, whether year round or seasonally, and make it a decorative centerpiece in their home.
Fireplace candelabras are a great way to retain the atmosphere that a fireplace creates without the maintenance of burning wood. Other than changing the candles from time-to-time, a fireplace candelabra requires no maintenance. They are especially practical for decorative fireplaces that’s chimneys have been closed off since they don’t require any special ventilation.
Once the fireplace has been cleaned of dust and debris, simply place the candelabra into your fireplace opening to instantly transform the look. If the addition of the fireplace candelabra is a permanent change, consider purchasing different colored candles or entirely different candelabras for different seasons and holidays to add festive warmth to the room. Candelabras come in a variety of styles to suit any décor whether you’re looking for something traditional, contemporary or rustic, there’s sure to be something to fit your style.
