When we think about having a cosy woodburning stove we probably all think of having a traditional fireplace in a living room. Following on from our blog all about alternatives to a traditional fireplace, we have also seen an increased number of stoves going in to more unusual locations!
The spike in popularity of log cabins, yurts, camping pods and summer houses has meant a rise in the number of mini-stoves we have seen being installed in to these types of structure. The nature of these outdoor installations means that they are unable to be connected to mains heating and therefore using a mini wood-burner is an ideal solution. Creating a cosy, warm feeling inside an otherwise “outdoor” space. These types of installation usually require either a heat shield panel if against wood or in the case of a yurt they’re almost always positioned in the centre of the structure.
We have also seen a recent increase in the number of installations of stoves in other rooms in peoples’ homes, we’ve enjoyed installing recent projects in both conservatories and bedrooms.
Conservatory installations provide a great focal point and another usable living space which in winter months may otherwise be neglected. Conservatories are often cold and closed off in winter as heating a big glass space can be costly. By installing a wood burning stove you are providing a heating source that is not only a fantastic design feature but is also a clean air compliant appliance which will help combat climate change by using clean burn technology.
Bedrooms, although this may seem unusual, are actually quite a traditional setting for a fire. In homes – before central heating – a lot of people had a fireplace in the bedroom and many homes still do have this as a decorative feature. The trend towards re-opening these fireplaces and chimneys and then fitting a beautiful EcoDesign Ready stove means that your bedroom is always toasty and warm. Lazy Sunday mornings are elevated to a whole new level of comfort with a stove and kettle topper, at this time of year you need not even venture downstairs to snuggle up by the wood-burner if you have one in your bedroom!
We have a full range of stoves in our showroom, from mini stoves for your holiday pod to a large conservatory warmer.
