We're having a wood burner installed into our chimney breast. There was a fireplace but it was a fake 1930s tile one which had to be demolished to make the hole big enough. So now we just have a plain plastered chimney breast where the stove recessed. We've got a slab of slate for the hearth. We were going to tile the 'hole' where the stove sits. But with no mantlepiece of fireplace just wondering whether it will look rather bare.
Does anyone have any smart designs for what goes around a wood burning stove?
Our house was built in 1970 and our decor is simple. Aiming for Danish look... Although not tidy enough to achieve it.
Ours is on a raised brick platform with the same bricks on the wall behind and the stovepipe goes straight up through the ceiling the bricks are like this only ours are only two high not 5 like this. lakeviewdream.blogspot.com/2010/12/update-december12-2010-inside-view.html I want to put one in the next house, it has a slate chimney breast and a slab of slate of the hearth so would look nice with a wood stove on it.
