How did you incorporate your wood burning stove into your living room?
“Our wood burning stove corner has seen a big change after we replaced our old wood burning stove with a new Aduro 9 wood burning stove.
Before, the area around the wood burning stove was boring and didn’t really serve a purpose. I decided to have the brick wall behind the stove plastered and to build a niche for a stack of wood next to the wood burning stove.
With little means, I created a cosy corner with a good chair, a small table and a reading lamp. This way, it turned into a corner of the living room that we can use. It’s lovely to sit next to the stove and enjoy a hot cup of tea, read a good book or just look at the flames.”
What was important to you when you chose a wood burning stove?
“Primarily, it was important to me that I found a wood burning stove which would ensure that I had a great view of the flames and that the design of the wood burning stove was beautiful and clean.
What I really liked about our Aduro 9 wood burning stove was that the pull out drawer was beneath the stove. It’s a good place to hide the things necessary to light a fire because they often look messy in plain sight.”
What difference does the wood burning stove make for you in your home?
“The stove creates good and real warmth. We start using it during the last summer evenings and then all through winter. And the view of the flames creates cosiness and atmosphere in our home.”
What’s your best decorating tip?
“The most important thing is to let the wood burning stove become a piece of furniture in your living room and not just a functional thing in the home.”
