When it comes to choosing a wood burning or multi fuel stove for your home, there are a number of considerations to bear in mind. These include the size, shape and material, as well as whether or not to choose an inset or free standing stove? Each of these options have advantages and benefits, and its important to weigh these against your requirements. Here at at JMS Wood Burning and Multi-Fuel Stoves, we are leading stove experts. And this is our guide to everything you should know about free standing stoves.
What is a free standing stove?
A free standing stove is a stove that stands on legs, a base or a pedestal and is not built into a fireplace. These differ from inset stoves, which sit within an existing fireplace.
So, why should you choose a free standing stove?
There are a number of reasons why free standing stoves are the most popular option for home owners across the UK. These include:
- Effective heating- even for large open plan living rooms, a free standing stove can provide the optimum amount of heating to keep your home warm. This is because the heat fro the fire radiates around the entire room, and less heat is lost through transference.
- Stunning designs- free standing stoves are available in a wide range of stunning designs. From contemporary, circular designs that can be the centre piece of your home to stylish, classic and traditional stoves, there are a variety of options to suit any design theme or home style.
- Flexible- free standing stoves do offer the option for being moved or repositioned in the future, although this will require a professional stove engineer. What this means is that you can redesign your living room and fireplace area in the future, without needing extensive work.
