Have you fallen in love with the traditional double sided stove featured in Victoria and Neil Robertson’s Country Antrim barn conversion (25 Beautiful Homes, April edition p.50)? Double-sided stoves are a great way to heat two adjoining rooms using a single chimney or flue system. In addition, double sided stoves make a stunning focal point, whether they are installed in a recess or freestanding in the centre of a large room.
Whether you have a large or small area to heat, there is a double sided woodburner to suit your requirements. Most double sided stoves are built to order, so it is best to pick out and order your stove well in advance of the installation date. The StovesAreUs website has a good range of double sided stoves, and some customer favourites are listed below.
The Evergreen ST1050 Elm double sided multifuel / woodburning stove is aimed at the budget end of the market.
