There’s nothing quite like curling up on a sofa in front of an open log fire with a good book and a glass of wine. It’s cosy, it looks pretty and it heats the whole room. On the other hand, cleaning out the fire the next day can be a messy affair with ash flying everywhere as you scoop out the grate. And if a blast of wind happens to come the wrong way down the chimney, your cheery fire can fill the room with unpleasant puffs of smoke.
So, what do you do if you want a cleaner alternative but aren’t quite ready to completely abandon the fire in favour of central heating? Well, you could always consider a stove instead, which will provide just as much warmth without as much hassle. Companies like Hunter Stoves have a whole range of multi-fuel stoves which add a lovely finish to any room and are the perfect compromise for fire lovers.
Most stoves are made from cast-iron and come in a choice of shades so you can choose one that complements the decor in your house. They also come in a range of sizes so even if your living room is small you should be able to find a stove that won’t take up too much space and overwhelm the room. Many of them will also burn a variety of fuels, including logs for those of you who still like the smell of freshly burning wood.
If you don’t want your home comforts to have too much of an impact on the planet, it’s possible to get stoves installed with pioneering technology that helps to reduce carbon emissions. Hunter Stoves is one company selling a range of stoves with this technology – known as Cleanburn. Not only do these stoves produce less carbon, which is good news for the environment, they are also a lot more economical to run, which is good news for your pocket too – especially when electricity and gas prices seem to go up every year.
If you’re not quite sure if a stove would be right for your house, it might be a good idea to pop down to a show room one weekend and see how they look in different living room settings. Have a chat to the sales team and designers and they will be able to recommend a model to suit your home and your needs.
Many thanks to the designer for sharing the details above.

Wood stoves are fabulous!!! We have a small one in our kitchen and it’s able to heat our entire house on a cold winters day.
I love wood stoves in the right room..my parents have one and it looks so pretty and charming and is extremely efficient, gives off so much heat! Hope you hit the beach and had a great weekend Luciane.
