If you are anything like me then there is nothing betting than sitting in front of a roaring log fire on a cold winter evening and maybe even enjoying a glass of whiskey. But nothing ruins the mood like running out of wood and having to go outside in the freezing cold to grab some more. This is where having a log holder can change your whole evening.
No one wants a messy stack of wood dumped next to their fire or in a cupboard so why not invest in something that organizes the wood and helps to keep it dry and away from moisture that could ruin it. They are a great way of storing for your daily needs somewhere in your house or right by your fire and on top of that they look great.
Hopefully we all agree that they are a good idea so that leads us to what type of log holder should you use? Well, there are a whole host of different types and sizes not to mention the variety of materials.
You don’t want to store too much inside your home as this can invite unwanted ‘visitors’ into your home. One way avoid this is to make sure you keep it in a warm dry place, which is why having it next to your fire is a great idea.
The ‘best one’ is very dependent on what you are after, are you looking to simply store your wood in a cupboard? If so, then something like a canvas log bag would cover all your needs. Do you want to store it right by the fire? In that case you might want to invest in something that looks the part. There are a number of different styles that you can go for, but not all of them hold a lot of wood. But if you are more interested in one that looks good, why not go for a steel or iron log holder? Another option is a firewood cart. While this is more for those with mobility issues, some of them look the part if you have the room for them. They are a useful purchase and will save you a lot of back pain in the long run, so if mobility is an issue for you, believe me it’s worth it.
So why use a log holder? If nothing else they save you having to go outside, they can look stunning and they really add to the atmosphere. So, if you have a log fire what are you waiting for?
