How To.. . Make Your Home Warm

The expert view on warming your home with a wood-burning stove for elegance and energy efficiency
Jacky Parker

1 Stand and deliver

People are viewing stoves as a focal point for a room as much as an efficient way to heat it. Modern stoves with curved shapes and those raised on a pedestal are becoming more popular as customers want to be able to enjoy viewing the fire itself. While the warmth of the flames will ensure that the space is kept cosy. Declan Kingsley-Walsh, managing director, Morsø UK

2 Subtle centrepiece

Simple, functional and efficient, we chose the Jetmaster stove for its contemporary industrial aesthetic – the glass cover and blackened steel finish complement our floor-to-ceiling glazing. The stove sits flush to the wall, so it’s a subtle centrepiece that’s the heart and hearth of the living room. Yet it’s compact and space-saving, sitting snugly above the in-built log store at the perfect height for stoking the fire. Alex Michaelis, co-founder, Michaelis Boyd Associates

3 Clean and simple

I love the look of a contemporary wood burner in a traditional inglenook fireplace. The Chesneys Shoreditch stoves have lovely clean lines and come in colours other than black, such as a gorgeous grey blue. It’s a classic wood burner shape but without the unnecessary decorative details you sometimes see. They work well with mid-century or modern furnishings. Nia Morris, director, Nia Morris Studio
