van Ellen + Sheryn in Houzz Feature

How we implemented a freestanding woodburner for our Hidden House project in Ashburton, Devon.

van Ellen + Sheryn’s design for a built in hearth and woodburner features on Houzz

Create order with a plinth

If a freestanding wood-burner and a pile of logs feels a bit messy for your scheme, try this idea. The brick plinth, painted white to blend with the wall behind, corrals the stove, logs and kindling into one neat unit. It also gives the wood-burner an importance in the room, and means the flames are at eye level for anyone snuggling up in an armchair.
