This is the atmosphere that a fireplace stove can create. Thanks to innovative design solutions, the fireplace becomes a relevant addition to any interior. Before opting for one of the many models that will look perfect in your home, consider some of the nuances of each of them.
Electric or bio-fireplaces are usually installed in the apartment. they do not require a chimney to be installed. In a private house, you can afford a full-fledged wood-burning fireplace-stove, which gives a special warm atmosphere. Depending on the interior idea, the fireplace is installed:
- wall-mounted corner;
- wall front;
- rotary ("island");
When choosing a fireplace-stove, you should decide in advance how much area it will heat and whether water distribution is needed to other rooms. For example, Romotop Tala ovens are designed for rooms up to 220 square meters, while they easily fit into modern design, are compact, reliable, and are manufactured using innovative technologies.
Do not overlook whether the chosen fireplace stove has:
- Different directions of the chimney;
- Regulators of secondary and tertiary air supply;
- Double walls;
- Cold handles;
- Large observation glass;
- Cooking zones.
The most common model with these characteristics is Ferlux Lava. It is not only multifunctional, but in its manufacture, figured castings are used to give a luxurious appearance.
It is better to choose the location and type of fireplace even at the stage of building a house, in which case you can pay attention to closed built-in fireplaces, attached semi-open or open island ones. A closed fireplace stove is a classic option, but requires thick enough walls. The most economical option would be semi-open fireplaces, which can be wall-mounted or corner ones. Open fireplaces have the most disadvantages:
- can be located only in large rooms with high ceilings;
- when using them, there is a high probability of a fire;
- low efficiency of heating the room.
If the fireplace stove is planned to be installed in a finished house, then a cast iron or steel stove becomes an ideal option.
This is a universal version of the heater for both cottages and summer cottages with a small area. Metal fireplace stoves have their advantages:
- they quickly heat the room;
- compact in size;
- safe to use;
- you can watch live fire;
- high efficiency of heat transfer with low consumption of firewood;
- a variety of decoration and design allows you to put a fireplace-stove in the interior of any style;
- can withstand high temperature fluctuations.
A metal fireplace stove is something that everyone can afford for a private house or summer cottage. On the one hand, it is an irreplaceable assistant in heating the room and preparing food, and on the other hand, it is an element of the interior, near which it is always pleasant to gather with the whole family. Such a fireplace can look simple and restrained, or it can have intricate molded patterns.
Economical, time-tested, made of environmentally friendly materials - all this is about the traditional Russian stove. She very often began to appear in modern interiors, only now she is both practical and stylish.
If space permits, then a full-fledged large stove is installed to heat the whole house, which has stove benches, compartments for cooking, baking ovens for storing firewood and dishes. For a summer residence, an option for a corner stove of a more modest size is suitable, but which can easily cope with heating one room.
The design of a brick oven can vary depending on its purpose:
- For kitchen. In this case, it is better to equip the stove with an oven and a cast iron stove.
- An oven with a spacious, warm and cozy stove bench is suitable for a bedroom.
- For the living room, it is worth choosing the design of the stove connected to the fireplace.
- For dividing the interior space. Then one part of the stove will serve as a stove in the kitchen, and the second part will be a fireplace for the living room.
Considering that the brick heats up a lot, a safe design with terracotta or clinker ceramic tiles is selected for the stove. To give a luxurious look, tiles or Majolica are used. The stove can be plastered and covered with heat-resistant paint of any color you like.
Tiled stoves occupy a special place among stone stoves. If plain stoves look minimalist and restrained, then tiled stoves bring a sense of sophistication, wealth and antiquity to the house. Such an element of the interior will help to harmoniously combine modernity and classics. Next to the tiled stove, wooden furniture in the style of a Russian hut, classic and Provence style furniture will look good.
The stove is the central element of the room; accordingly, it is better to select materials for decoration that will only emphasize its majesty. For example, finishing with stone, wood or decorative brick is ideally combined with a Russian stove. The painted version of the stove looks advantageous in a room with leather furniture and massive metal chandeliers in the medieval style.
It may seem that the fireplace stove is a relic of the time, but nothing else creates a warmer atmosphere in the house than this simple piece of furniture. At the same time, now more than ever, the choice of fireplaces is vast, both in size, and in functionality, and in price.
The fireplace stove can perfectly solve any interior task. The corner oven saves space and fits into almost any design. For the Art Nouveau style, you can choose a fireplace with panoramic glazing and give it a leading role by installing it in the center of the room. A fireplace built into the wall will only emphasize the exclusivity of high-tech design. A traditional stove with a stove bench will decorate a house in the Russian style.
Regardless of whether it is a cast iron fireplace stove or a stone stove, it will be able to bring a special atmosphere to the kitchen. You can not only enjoy cooking, but also relax, contemplating the sight of the flame in the oven.
The classic style of the interior assumes the presence of a U-shaped fireplace, decorated with ornaments or columns. It usually has a shelf for decorative items and wrought iron grates. When decorating a classic fireplace, marble, granite or natural decorative stone are used.
The country style is characterized by a D-shaped fireplace with a niche for firewood and decorative beams that can be used as shelves. To make the whole interior look harmonious, you can put wicker furniture, a textile sofa, and decorate with hand-made things in a room with a fireplace.
A fireplace stove, regardless of its size and properties, is able to bring a joyful and cozy atmosphere into the house.
