Creating a cosy fire in the winter to warm up the room and to help you unwind and relax is one of the best feelings. There are so many different things that go into a fire, for example there are several types of firewood and fuels for them, so you just need to figure out which is the best for you.

Whatever your preferred ones are, here are a few other things that will help make it that little bit easier when creating the perfect fire this winter.

Fire log

Fire logs are really convenient to use as they reduce mess and are excellent for clean burning. They’ll last for approximately an hour and a half and don’t need any additional fire lighters or kindling. Then, to increase heat you can add other fuels to the fire such as coal or seasoned firewood.


Firelighters are very useful and easy for lighting your fires. They’re odourless and last a lot longer than paper or kindling. These can be used for things like wood burners, BBQs, your house fire and outdoor fires such as campfires. They don’t have a shelf-life so they’re extremely long-lasting. Firelighters are usually environmentally-friendly as the production usually consists of raw materials and recycled wastepaper and cardboard.

This is a range of different fireside tools to help assist you. These are aesthetically pleasing when not in use and all the fire tools are stored on a stand so it’s really neat and doesn’t take up too much space.
