Wood burning and multi-fuel stoves are a great way to keep your home toasty – but they also do so much more than that. Whether your interior design is contemporary or traditional, a stove can act as the focal point of the room, creating a space that feels centred and cosy.

Here are seven inspiring living rooms, which show just how versatile a stove can be.

1. A Room with a View

Do you dream of gazing out over the sea while you warm yourself by the fire? This stunning design by Dualchas Architects makes that dream a reality. The minimalist space and sparse furnishings allows the view to take centre stage, while the stove prevents the room from feeling cold.

This impressive double height space is designer David Pocknell’s living room, which has been featured in Dominic Bradbury’s book ‘100 Contemporary Rooms’- and it’s easy to see why. The beamed ceiling does the talking, while the elegant cylindrical stove adds the contemporary touch.

This contemporary design by My Interior Stylist is a great example of how a wood burning stove can act as a focal point for a large space. By placing furnishings around the stove, the designer has created a cosy seating area, without compromising on the modern look of the room.

6. A Sunny Space

We love this cosy design by Bristol-based design firm, Dittrich Hudson Vasetti Architects. With warm colours creating a ‘sunny’ space and, of course, a classic stove, the look would complement the vast majority of rooms.

7. A Cosy Snug

Think stoves can’t be used in small spaces? Think again. This design by Woodford Architecture and Interiors, and Rust and the Wolf is the perfect cosy snug, while the bright sofa adds some colour to the otherwise dark space.

As you can see from these inspiring living room designs, a stove can be the perfect addition to a huge range of interiors – from contemporary spaces to more traditional living rooms.
