What Is a Firewood Rack?

Fire has been a source of warmth, light, of life itself for thousands and thousands of years. Even today, nothing makes your home so cozy and inviting as a fireplace with flames dancing and crackling, filling the room with a comforting glow. However, for the fire to burn well and to be as delightful as the song sings, you need your wood fuel to be properly seasoned. A simple and effective way to do so is to get a firewood storage that will keep the logs off the ground and organized. Outdoor firewood racks are capacious, sturdy, and rust-resistant; they often come with a cover to protect the wood from rain and snow. On the other hand, most indoor firewood racks are designed to take little space near the hearth. Elegantly made to add a special charm to your room, they are also robust and durable and can hold enough wood to keep the fire burning at least for the night. We have reviewed the five best log racks on the market to help you choose the one that suits you best.
