Summer Fireplace Solutions

Now that we are moving into warmer weather its time to transform the fireplace to the right season. There is no need to leave a dark, ashy fireplace all spring and summer, especially when your fireplace is the focal point in the room. You can fill the fireplace in many ways, my two favorite choices are plants and wood logs. In choosing the wood type I prefer birch because the white bark doesn’t resemble winter seasons like other woods, such as oak, does. But you can get more creative with the wood you use, try spray painting them with a metallic paint, or even try blue or pink (color of the year!) Since it’s not a permanent change, and its rather inexpensive, I say experiment and have fun.
