What Houzz contributors are saying:
Maintain your door ropesMake sure these fireproof ropes, which create a seal around your stove’s door, are in good order, David advises. “They maintain your control over air combustion and burning speed,” he says. “Without good door ropes, your stove will perform badly.”As Jamie also points out, “Maximising the efficiency of your fuel saves you money.”
A cosy, grey-walled living room centres on a wood-burning stove. The original fireplace surround was removed, as a clear wall suited the energy-efficient wood-burner better. The building team fitted underfloor heating throughout the ground floor and covered it with oak parquet. “The owners chose parquet because the timber is durable and we like the look. The space was wide enough to accommodate herringbone.”The room gained masses of light from a new sliding, glazed door to the hallway.Wooden sideboard, The Shed Interiors.
