There is a chill in the air now so there’s no better time to start thinking about what stove and more importantly, what style you want to achieve in your home. We have put together the 5 main styles of stove design here for you to get in the stove spirit this autumn.

Carved marble or limestone fire surrounds have been a mainstay in British homes for centuries – and it’s easy to see why. Elegant in shape and proportion, neo-classical styles have outlived many fads and fashions – nothing fits quite so seamlessly into Georgian or Victorian architecture as one of these timeless designs.
Practical and easy to maintain, a wood burner can be located in myriad places around a house – especially new extensions, which have replaced traditional living rooms as the main living area in many contemporary family homes. Radiating heat in all directions, a Scandi-style stove makes a marvellous central feature, or can create a dividing line between working and entertainment zones.
Sleek, contemporary wood burners warm up a room with the minimum of fuss. Another major plus point is that such simple designs allow you to play around with the setting to your heart’s content. Placing the burner on a plinth, carving out a section of the wall to install it in a niche or straight onto a concrete slab to use as a contemporary surround are all easy-to-achieve options.
A stove can be equally at home tucked away in a fireplace or in the centre of the room for all to see. If you choose to show off your hot furniture, it better be able to rotate to show off a great flame picture for all your guests to see. A large window only makes the experience better for all. Play with form and function to create something truly unique – the only limit is your imagination!
