Imagine the scene: an old cottage, lots of wood, plump sofas and children playing in front of a roaring fire. It’s a classic image and one that always evokes feeling of comfort and warmth.
You can easily bring this cosiness to your home with some clever interior design. To get the look, invest in soft rugs, candles and plenty of throws and cushions.
For the finishing touch, a wooden floor and a wood burning stove are the perfect way to bring warmth to the space. The natural texture and colour of the wood add cosiness, whilst the stove will add heat. However, you don’t have to stick to traditional interior design, as you might expect.
Here are four stoves and wooden floors that are the perfect pairing.
Dark wood and a contemporary stove
This contemporary Flavel Arundel Multifuel Stove is divine. The traditional wood fuel fire is encased in a modern design, effortlessly meshing contemporary and traditional. Pair it with a dark wooden floor with shadowy tones for an atmospheric, cosy space.
Quirky, coloured stove and simple wood flooring
If you’re interested in buying a quirky stove that makes a statement, this Invicta Seville Wood Burning Stove is the perfect choice. Pair it with a simple, pale wood floor to make it stand out, and dark coloured contemporary furnishings. The dark grey walls in the above photo would also be a good choice to make the colour of the stove ‘pop’.
Detailed, textured flooring and a traditional stove
A traditional stove is the perfect complement to detailed, textured flooring. Pick a wooden floor containing lots of different tones for a warm and cosy vibe. You can then contrast the traditional design of this Ekol Crystal Stove with contemporary furnishings for a stylish space.
Neutral tones and an ornate traditional stove
Traditional is the new trendy and this Broseley Lincoln Slimline Gas Stove is simply stunning! With double doors that offer a great view of the flickering flames, this stove is the perfect focal point for a room. Allow it to take centre stage by pairing it with pale wood, simple flooring and neutral coloured furnishings. A textured throw is the perfect way to add cosiness and prevent the neutral tones from feeling ‘cold’.
Wood flooring and wood burning stoves are the perfect pairing and will instantly add cosiness to a space. However, as the above pairings prove, you don’t have to stick to traditional interior design.
