One of the first things you’ll need to do is choose the right log burner fireplace for your home. There are many different styles and sizes to choose from, so it’s important to select the one that best fits your space and your aesthetic. Once you’ve chosen the perfect wood burner fireplace, then it’s time to start thinking about how you want to decorate it. Do you want to keep things simple with a few candles or vases? Or do you want to go all out and really make a statement?

If you’re looking for some inspiration, then check out these log burner fireplace ideas for decorating your wood-burning stove. With a little creativity, you can transform your wood-burning stove into the focal point of your home.

Corner wood-burning stoves

Corner stoves are designed to fit snugly into the corner of a room, making them a great space-saving option that curates an inviting atmosphere in your home.

If you’re worried that a corner log-burning stove might not fit in with the style of your home, don’t be. These stoves come in a variety of styles and finishes, so you’re sure to find one that will complement your décor. And because they’re so efficient, you can rest assured that your corner wood-burning stove will be a great addition to your home.

JC Bordelet’s Julietta 985 design can transform the corner of the living room with its customisable height and generous 90-degree view of the flames. The closed firebox delivers optimum efficiency and heat output.

Colour coordinate

Brightly coloured stoves have the potential to really stand out in your home and become a focal point. Whether you’re looking for a traditional red stove to warm up your living room, or a bold blue one to add a pop of colour to your kitchen, there’s sure to be a modern log burner that’s right for you. Besides, colourful wood burners are bound to start some great conversations with your guests. You could even colour-coordinate the stove with the colours in your space. 

The Zelia 908 from JC Bordelet is a large central fireplace with a colourful gloss lacquer. In fact, it can be finished in almost any RAL shade – from orange to peppermint green. Make your home stand out with this showstopping piece.

Outdoor wood burner

With an outdoor wood burner, you can enjoy the great outdoors with your friends and family while feeling the warmth of the fire. Burn wood, roast marshmallows and enjoy a few drinks around the fire in your new relaxation space.

A cast iron wood burner will never go out of style. It’s a classic design that will last for years to come with the proper care and maintenance. When it comes to styling traditional wood burners, it’s all about making the space feel more homely. Plenty of cushions and blankets with plush textures will soften the appearance of cast iron in your living space. 

Embrace minimalism

There’s something about log burner fireplace ideas that just ooze hygge. Maybe it’s the way they crackle and pop or the fact that they remind us of cosy winter nights spent by the fire. But whatever the reason, modern wood burner designs are definitely having a moment right now – especially when it comes to minimalist homes.

JC Bordelet’s Alexia 995 is perfect for minimal homes that need a strong focal point. The model features a complex suspended canopy mounted over a base and a gorgeous combustion chamber. 

Whether you’re kitting out a brand new build or simply want to add a touch of Scandi style to your existing home, a log burner is a perfect way to do it. Not only do they look great, but they’re also practical too – providing you with an extra source of heat during the colder months.

Country living room

When it comes to country-style homes, log burners definitely have a place. They can provide a focal point in the room and really help to create a cosy, comfortable atmosphere.

Of course, there are other ways to achieve this same look and feel. For example, you could also use a wood-burning stove or even a fireplace. But if you really want to capture the country aesthetic, then a log burner is definitely the way to go.

Divide and conquer

If you’re struggling to fit your wood burner idea into your home’s design, it might be time to think outside the box. The Eolia 907 from JC Bordelet plays with different angles to add unique dimensions to the space where it’s installed. With its hexagonal base and twisting canopy, the Eolia 907 is just right for homes needing an extra edge. 

Use a log-burning stove to create different areas within an open-plan home. One of our favourite log burner ideas involves placing the stove in the centre of the room to divide the living room and kitchen.
