A stove or fireplace is an important purchase. It’s a home feature that often takes a prominent place in your living space and is not changed for many years. You want to make sure it works perfectly for your environment. Obviously you can weigh up all your options online, or by looking in brochures, but the advantages of visiting a physical showroom are plentiful.
Sizing up the options
It’s an opportunity to see the full variety of product options, brands and styles available. Seeing different models in their physical form may help you choose between gas and electric fires or wood and multi-fuel burners if you haven’t already decided. You might have a particular choice in mind, but then be surprised about how nice other products look in the flesh. It helps to see options alongside each other to appreciate the differences and the details. We have set up the showroom with many stoves in their own ‘home’ setting with fireplaces with accessories in-situ to give you a sense of context and so you can get a feel for how it might look in your living space. You can have an virtual look around on our showroom page.
It’s also a great opportunity to have a chat with an expert team. They can explain the benefits and features in relation to your home and your specific requirements such as your budget and the size and flow of your space. You can find out all the things you may need to consider whether it is your first fireplace or stove, or if you are converting or updating an older system.
You can get advice on all aspects of chimneys such as lining, maintenance or even your options if you don’t have one (surprising more than you might think!). A good showroom should be able to advise you on everything right down to the best types of fuel to use in certain stoves and reputable local fuel suppliers.
