If you’re passionate about making your house a cosy home, we’re almost certain you’ll have heard of ‘hygge’. On International Hygge Day, we’re celebrating ways to bring more hygge to your life.
Pronounced ‘hoo-ga’, the word represents the Danish concept of being content, cosy, and surrounded by everything that makes you feel at peace. It’s about enjoying the simple pleasures that life brings, and is often created when you’re with family and friends, enjoying a hot chocolate by a wood burner, snuggled up under a blanket.
One of the best ways to bring more hygge to your life is to make your home interior a cosy sanctuary – a place where you can shut yourself off from the everyday stresses of life, and relax with family and friends.
Make your home more hygge by considering a log burner. Although you might assume you need to burn real wood to create hygge, it’s more about enjoying anything that promotes relaxation. Gas log burners and electric fires create the same ambient atmosphere as a real wood burner.
To help you on your journey to create hygge in the home, we have selected some examples of log burners that will provide a comforting and peaceful atmosphere in your home.
The gas Vogue Midi T Highline is a freestanding stove from Gazco, which provides a highly realistic flame, and offers up to 4.8 kWs of heat output. Its stylish integrated log store base adds to the overall realistic aesthetic, allowing you to display real logs and complete the wood burning look.
Although hygge promotes putting down technology and switching off, we’re going to make an exception for our remote controlled electric eReflex fire. Its mesmerising flame effects and abundance of colour variations will be all you need to enjoy your evening. Aside from the striking flame visuals, this electric fire range can be enjoyed without the heat function, meaning you can experience a hygge ambience in your home all year round.
If you know that real flames from a wood burning stove are what will complete your hygge interior, consider the Sheraton 5 range. Available as wood burning and multi-fuel models, the elegant appearance and large viewing window of the Sheraton 5 make for the ultimate hygge experience. This stove is also offered in a Wide version, bringing an even more expansive view of the flames – the perfect setting for nestling under a blanket and enjoying a good book.
