Fireplace Design A real burning issue.


Mantlepiece and grate styles have altered but the basic structural elements of a fireplace have not radically changed for hundreds of years. The early combination of a large stone or brick opening with a chimney built over it evolved from the obvious fact that smoke rises, rather than from a scientific understanding of how a well-designed flue system works. Consequently early wood and later coal-burning fires were very inefficient and it was not until a certain Benjamin Thompson (also known as Count Rumford) produced his thesis on the principles of fireplace design in 1799 that smaller grates and improvements in the internal shape of the openings were introduced.

A brick or stone enclosure forms the basis of the fireplace. Variously known as the fireplace opening or recess or builders opening, it may be set flush with the wall or built out into the room, forming a chimney breast. This chimney breast rises through the height of the house, emerging through the roof to form a chimney stack. At the top of the opening the gather and flue combine to carry the smoke up the chimney. If the chimney is shared by several fireplaces on different floors, it may contain more than one flue.

The masonry over the fireplace opening is supported by a lintel or a brick arch. Old inglenook fireplaces used massive oak beams, whereas a strong iron strap usually supports an early brick arch. Later fireplaces may have a straight arch supported by angle iron, and by the twentieth century cast concrete lintels were the norm.

A hearth, constructed from non-combustible materials such as stone or tile-faced concrete, projects out into the room to protect the floor from falling ashes. In most old houses the hearth was set flush with the floor, although sometimes a superimposed one was used to raise the level. The space within the fireplace opening, known as the back hearth, is usually level with the hearth itself. A dog grate for burning wood or coal can be placed on this back hearth. However, by the mid-nineteenth century the mass produced cast-iron register grate which filled the opening, had become the fashion.

To complete the assembly, a mantelpiece or mantel or fireplace surround, as it is often called today is fitted to frame the grate or fireplace opening. The mantel may be constructed from stone, slate, marble, wood or cast iron. The walls around it may be finished with wood paneling, or more commonly with plaster, and in some cases the mantel extends upwards to form an impressive chimneypiece. Mirrored overmantels were introduced in the late eighteenth century, and these became the classic feature of Victorian sitting rooms.

Within this fireplace an open fire burning wood or coal is a cheerful sight, but if it is your only source of heat, as it was for centuries, this romantic image can soon fade especially if the fire does not burn properly. Getting a fire started and keeping it alight then becomes a challenge, if not a chore. For wood and coal fires to burn well a good supply of air is needed under the grate, as well as a means of escape for the hot gases and smoke. With the fuel safely contained within the fireplace opening on a grate, free circulation of air is possible and waste ash can fall through the grate so the fire is not stifled. If the chimney is inadequate or the flow of air is restricted the fire will not function effectively.

    Purchased the large and small for my Kitchen and added some small plants. I really like how it turned out. I also spray painted the metal holders black to tie in my pantry barn door that has black hardware.

    So easy to assemble. Looks great on my porch. Love the fact that it provides extra seating when needed.

    Ordered the garden set for my elderly parents. The rattan effect furniture is scratched and has slight damage. Didn't realise this until the furniture was out of the box and on the patio in the daylight. It's too much hassle for them to return. Very poor quality furniture. I was going to order a bed for my sons room but have now changed my mind and have ordered from another company.

    These are so elegant and love they are faux wicker with faux bamboo. I needed to buy these for a client's doctor's office so they need to stand up to all ages, weather and needs and this nails it on the head. Thank you I highly recommend these dining chairs and they are stackable!

    Ample storage in a robust and well dimensioned box. Easy to put together and clear instructions. One star lost as the top cover has a small crack which was there on delivery and I'm awaiting for www.boisecloggers.com to get back to me in order to rectify. It has been a few days and no response, however given the current Covid19 situation, this is more than understandable. Let's hope it does not rain in the meantime! ;)

    Great start to my new garden. Look great as they blend with the colour of my fence. Really worth the money. Only thing I would add is it would be good if you could order them in a smaller quantity.

    Grundsätzlich echt chic, schnell zusammen gesteckt und dann auch stabil. Lediglich ein wenig negativ, nicht 100% passgenau.

    Chairs look great and are very comfortable. But, the colour is nothing like in the picture. They are a dark teal. Could you find out if it is possible for me to stain them? Do I need to sand first? Thanks, Jane
