Having a wood-burning stove or fireplace is a luxury this time of year. If you’re looking to get your hygge on, nothing compares to a cozy wood fire. The one big draw-back to having a wood fireplace is how messy your home can get with wood chips and dirt falling off the logs and the extra dust that a fireplace leaves behind.
Plus, a stack of wood is not always the most attractive thing to look at. Here are a few unique ways to store logs and kindling wood to keep your home looking stylish and chic.
While in most cases the fireplace itself is the main attraction, the focal point of the room it’s in, sometimes the accessories and the décor around it can take that role.
Wood-burning fireplaces require wood and storing it in a fashionable way can either be difficult or wonderful, depending on the path you choose. Firewood storage can be a blessing in disguise and can become the beautiful decor feature the room is lacking.
Tall Metal Boxes
A set of metal frames are stacked up on one side of the fireplace. The mix of materials – wood, brick, and metal – adds a charming, cozy feel to space.
An Element of the Decor
The wood storage in this living area is a big part of the room’s focal wall. The matching towers of firewood complement the natural-wood wall and large timber mantel.
Make It a Piece of Art
This metal ring provides an artsy industrial vibe with very practical use. The smaller compartments hold kindling and newspaper while the big section holds a large stash of logs.
One of the lower cabinets on this built-in unit was retrofitted with an arched opening to make an attractive log holder.
If a built-in bench is out of the question, look for a movable bench with a bottom shelf to store firewood.
The underside of a built-in bench is a great place to tuck away firewood. Not only is it convenient, but the logs also look good mixed with the room’s wood accents and wall.
