    Introduce glassRather than separate cupboards and shelves, this idea ties them together. A pair of matching tall units, by Hartmann Designs, provides open box shelving for books or ornaments, and space on top for more of the same. The tiny drawers are handy for remotes and the small-scale clutter living rooms often collect. Larger cupboards and the glass door sections allow for more substantial storage, including glassware and perhaps drinks and mixers.Tell us…Which of these ideas would work in your home and why? Share your ideas (or completed project photos) in the Comments section.

    Take your safety seriouslyAs David points out, when you use a wood-burner, “you’re creating a very intense and powerful fire in the middle of your home. The user must treat it seriously in the same way they would any appliance that burns fuel. Steps must always be taken to eliminate the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning or fire damage.”

    Fill your alcovesA combination of bookcases and low-level cupboards is a classic solution for what to put either side of your chimney breast. Here, the homeowners have come up with something a little different, which adds to the bright and airy feel of this period living room: glass cupboards.In each alcove, there’s a smart mix of closed storage, perfect for board games, living room clutter (or messy people…). A small flash of open shelving keeps your best books on display, and then a glass-fronted space shows off pretty glassware. Being translucent, glasses work beautifully when preserving light is a priority. A cupboard like this could also look wonderful with a little LED lighting or a tiny desk lamp inside, and a mini bar or small, retro-style record player.Do you have a glass-fronted cupboard in your home? Let us know what you use it for in the Comments below.

    ‘Johanna’s from Sweden and we’ve spent a lot of time there, so my style is naturally very influenced by Scandi design,’ admits Roland. The pared-back furniture and clean palette in the living room are testament to this, but it is, says Roland, a very practical house, too. ‘The sofas are custom-made with bomb-proof fabric – with three young children in the house, we couldn’t have anything too delicate.’ Pale oak flooring, from The Natural Wood Floor Company, and neutral walls are a common thread throughout the house, while natural fibre blinds from Conrad (an America company) dress the windows in this relaxing space.

    Don’t make the opening for the stove too tall. Consider where we want the mantle to the land and how high the the TV will hang.
