Best Accessories to Update the Look of Your Hearth

It goes without saying that the fireplace is a natural focal point of any room. Updating the look of your fireplace can be as simple as switching out a few accessories. Whether you are searching for something fun and functional or purely for décor purposes, we have some great ideas to share that will fit every style without breaking the bank.

Fireplace Screens

A fireplace screen serves as a barrier between your functioning fireplace and the room. Typically, the frame is made of metal with a mesh panel. They provide an extra layer of protection from either the hot glass of a gas fireplace or the burning, sparking logs from a wood-burning fireplace. Fireplace screens are also a relatively inexpensive way to update the look of your hearth. Ranging from traditional and timeless to more updated and modern, there are many designs to choose from.

Tool Sets

While necessary for wood burning fireplaces, tool sets can bring a fun and nostalgic charm to gas or electric fireplaces. Most sets include one or more of the following: broom, brush, tongs, poker, shovel and bellows. Available in a wide array of styles and finishes, you're sure to find one to perfectly accent your space. Their slim design allows them to fit just about anywhere- even where space is limited.

Hearth Centers & Log Holders

Wood Holders are designed to organize and display firewood, logs or fire starter. They provide functionality for wood burning fireplaces or a purely aesthetic appeal for gas and electric. Like a wood holder, a hearth center can organize and display logs or firewood with the added advantage of providing essential tools. As with most fireplace accessories, both are available in a variety of sizes, styles and finishes.


Decorative lanterns make for a great and inexpensive fireplace decoration. They're easy to use and provide an outdoorsy feel to your décor. They can be utilized with traditional candles or you can opt for a battery operated option. Many battery operated candles have a timer or even remote so they can be easily turned on and off without having to constantly open or rearrange the lanterns. Our lanterns are available in many sizes- ranging from a mere 20-inches tall to an over-sized 36-inches.


Candelabras are a stylish way to add ambiance to your hearth. Whether you choose to use real candles or a flameless option, a candelabra is a sure bet for adding a warm glow to an unused fireplace. They are extremely versatile and can be used inside the fireplace itself, on the hearth or along the mantel. Available in a variety of sizes, styles and colors, you're sure to find one you love.

While we have highlighted a few of our favorite options, there are still many accessories to consider.
Whether it be an oversized mirror, whimsical clock, hearth rug, greenery, or holiday-themed décor, we recommend to always keep safety in mind when choosing décor.
