Everyone loves a new design suggestion, and here’s one that could revitalise your home, save you money and make use of your summer living space even in the winter. Today we’re talking about stoves as a good choice for any conservatory.
The cosiness of a hearth or fireplace is something everyone loves, especially when the winter months are drawing in. Stoves are one example, and their iconic look will add a special touch to any home. How would it be to have that same source of warmth and ambience available in your conservatory? You might not have considered this option, perhaps because you thought all fireplaces needed a chimney, or you’d only imagined using your conservatory during the summer. But how about using that same aspirational living space throughout the cooler times of the year, even when the sunshine isn’t on tap. Does it sound too good to be true? Well, a stove could be just the thing for you.
Now, there are a few considerations to bear in mind if you’re wondering about a solid fuel burning stove in your conservatory, and we’ll talk about those in a second. But at the very least, you could definitely consider an electric stove. These days electric stoves have the look and feel of the real thing, but they only need a single socket to plug into and the transformation is instant. Electric stoves are light and portable, so you don’t even have to leave it out in the conservatory. You can move your electric stove in and out of any spare rooms, or put it away for the summer, making it a very flexible option. With an electric stove the solution is a no-brainer; whether your conservatory is brick-built, fully glazed, or a separate summer house, if it has an electricity supply, you could have your electric stove up and running today.
But what about a wood-burning or multi-fuel stove for your conservatory? It's an unusual possibility for many homes. You’ll want to work out how much space it has to heat so that you can choose one with the right energy output and efficiency, but with this information in mind there are a number of models to choose from, including a range that is officially permissible in smoke-free zones. Before you make your final selection, check with a heating engineer to find out if you’ll need a flue fitted. You’ll also want to ensure that the place you’re hoping to install your stove and hearth is safe and isn't going to cause a potential fire hazard.
If you get the right model of the stove for your space, you can be cutting down on your fuel bills, upping your eco-friendly credentials, and making your family home feel that much bigger. Even when it’s not being used, the design feature of a working stove is a talking point and brings character to your house.
