A fireplace can offer warmth, ambience, and an inviting focal point in a home. Fire provides the perfect atmosphere for social interaction, and watching the dancing flames is a primal and sensual experience which awakens the senses of sight, of sound, of smell, and of touch. With many wood stoves, fire even touches your sense of taste, offering home-baked bread or meals cooked on the stove's hot surface, just inches from the blazing flames. Fireplaces and Wood Stoves offers you information and shopping links covering the full range of products that you may need for your hearth, including fireplace mantels, patio heaters, and gas fireplaces. The site has been designed to help you quickly and easily find the right accessories for your fireplace or wood stove, whether in a home or a cottage.
