Whether you live in the countryside or in the middle of a city, one design trend that’s not going away is the Cottagecore style. If you’ve heard of it and are wondering what it is, you’ve come to the right place.
In home décor, Cottagecore draws inspiration from aspects of rural lifestyles such as simple living and harmony with nature. It’s a home decor style that has seen a big increase in recent years, and it’s here to stay.
In normal times many of us in the UK enjoy a weekend away from home, whether that’s in a log cabin, campervan, or a cosy little cottage let. Now that many of us are spending more time at home, the need for those getaways is greater than ever. But with the luxury of a holiday not afforded by all, what if you could bring the Cottagecore vibe to you?
One way of doing this is with a log burner or fireplace. The right heating appliance can help to create a space that you love to spend time in with family and friends, even in the dead of winter. Paired with some choice furnishings, you can create a space that feels separate from the hustle and bustle of the rest of the house. A home away from home.
For many, one way of achieving the Cottagecore style comes with owning a real log burner or fireplace. A wood burning stove brings provides an authentic appeal to living as one with nature and ties in perfectly with the main inspiration for the style.
Whether you’re looking for a centrepiece to complete the traditional look of your rural home or are developing a cosy corner or room in a townhouse in which to relax, Stovax offer the UK’s leading range of wood burning stoves and fires. With many of our models featuring state-of-the-art high-efficiency combustion systems designed to comply with future Ecodesign regulations, owning a real log burner doesn’t mean you need to live in the past.
All Stovax traditional wood burning stoves are designed to be suitable for a range of homes and styles, however each feature subtle style alternatives that can bring something unique to your interior style.
Staples of our range such as our Huntingdon stoves have proved popular for their gothic styling and choice of clear or tracery door. Meanwhile Stockton or County ranges are designed to coordinate with a range of home interior styles and offer timeless styling, with rounded edges and landscape viewing windows offering a spectacular flame view. For smaller homes and inglenooks, both Stockton and County stoves are available in compact sizes designed to fit in a tight spot.
Finally, the Stovax Sheraton and Chesterfield ranges provide an elegance to their Cottagecore appeal. Both ranges prioritise crisp signature cornicing and bevelling details which frame their large portrait viewing windows. Both ranges offer wide models which offer a wider viewing window for the same great flame view, but with a shallower depth.
It’s a matter of choice which of these great stove styles you prefer for your home, but before making a decision we recommend seeing them up close and in person at your local retailer.
Gas stoves offer the same great log burner appeal but with the ease and convenience of being able to turn the heat on or off at the touch of a button. All Gazco gas stoves come with a remote control for igniting and extinguishing your stove from a distance. Many gas stoves are available for use with both conventional and balanced flues, so in many cases there are options available even if you don’t have a chimney.
Electric stoves offer maximum convenience alongside great flame visuals powered by their Chromalight LED technology. Electric stoves also offer the convenience of a remote control, allowing you to adjust flame visual settings from a distance as well as turn on or off. As the heat and flame visuals can be controlled separately from one another, these are a great choice if you’d like a centrepiece with a flame display that can be used all year round, with or without the heat. Many come with a choice of fuel effects, meaning you can tailor the look to your home.
To complete the look, other ideas of essential items to achieve the Cottagecore vibe commonly include cushions, blankets, and rugs. These provide style and comfort especially during the wintertime, and when combined with a log burner can create the perfect space in which to relax and unwind.
