A roaring open fire or wood burning stove offers both a comforting and atmospheric warmth as well as a focal point for a room.

There are a number of practical accessories that can also add to your chosen style. Try to keep to either modern or traditional and the consistency will help tie it all together.



Accessory, log basket, wood burning stove, tongs


I have a traditional style wood burning stove. These tongs belonged to my grandmother and I take pleasure using them knowing that they have been used through several generations. You could easily find something similar in a salvage yard or antique shop.

I used to carry logs into the house using an old builder's bucket so it's been a pleasure to have finally found a wicker log basket that fits neatly in a space near my stove. The handle makes it easy to carry.

Starting a successful fire requires a good amount of kindling. I store mine in a pale grey kindling bucket that I found for sale at my local garden centre.
