What is the bench in front of a fireplace called?
A fireplace hearth was historically used for heating and cooking from the earliest of times. Today, fireplace hearths have evolved towards more functional and decorative purposes. A hearth is located inside and outside the firebox. The part of the hearth that extends into the room from the fireplace opening is also referred to as the "hearth extension". One of the main purposes of this extension or "bench" is providing a seat close to the fire for heat. The most common example of hearths designed for this purpose are called "raised hearths". Hearths also serve to create a area around the fireplace to keep sparks and embers that pop out of the fire from reaching the floor, thus keeping your home safe, and keeping children and pets away from the fire. You can always add other accessories like fireplace screens, fireplace rugs, grates, firebacks, andirons, wood racks, or bellows to increase the safety, efficiency, and appeal of your fireplace hearth. No matter what the primary purpose is for your hearth, Northline Express has all of decorative and functional fireplace accessories you will need.

With a fireplace screen, you get a classic decorative look, the true sights, sounds, and smells from your fireplace with a added sense of security.

This supercharges your fire, and also drafts smoke and fumes out the chimney instead of into your home. Fireplace grates come is many styles and are made from a number of quality materials. Many of the grates Northline Express offers are made here in the USA.
