Log burner fireplace ideas: The kinetic aesthetic

There are several elements to consider when it comes to log burner fireplace ideas. We don’t just love them for their heat. The way they smell, the sound they make, and the light they give create an atmosphere that’s both familiar and relaxing. Even an inactive fireplace can enhance the ambience of any room. So, whether it’s a dormant fireplace or one that burns brightly, we’re here to inspire your kinetic aesthetic.

Log burning fireplace ideasWhen it comes to log burner design ideas, there are so many to choose from. Why not consider an elegant wood-burning stove set within your fireplace? It’s perfect for when the cold weather forces us to snuggle up indoors and bed down for the winter. There’s nothing quite like settling in with a good book, a roaring fire, and a cup of hot chocolate. The Danish even have a word for it: Hygge.

Types of fireplace designs include:

  • A traditional chimneypiece
  • A rustic wood burner
  • A pared-back fireplace
  • An open masonry fireplace
  • A free-standing stove

Benefits of log burners

  • Small environmental impact: The carbon wood takes to grow is countered by the carbon it gives off when it’s burned, which is why it’s considered a low-carbon fuel option. However, it does depend on where it’s grown, how it’s processed, and whether the wood is burned when it’s dry. Wet wood gives off polluting chemicals, so it’s important to make sure your logs stay out of the rain.
  • Reduced heating bills: Whether you use your wood burner to heat one room in your house or you attach it to your central heating, a log burning stove will reduce your yearly heating bills.
  • A warmer house: Fire is the perfect kinetic energy for making your home toasty – sometimes too toasty! (You can probably ditch the blankets…)
  • Softer ambience: A log burner is a sensory treat that evokes tranquillity and warmth inside your home, unrivalled by anything artificial.
