‘Not every room can take a woodburning stove, but electric or gas models make a great alternative,’ says Hannah Stone, Interiors Expert, Gazco. ‘With the good looks of a traditional woodburner, this electric stove, available in two sizes, fits perfectly in an entrance hallway or boot room, but would work just as well in a conservatory, bedroom or study. It simply plugs into a 13-amp socket, so is suitable for any room without a chimney. The stove has two heat settings and three brightness levels and a gas version is also available.’
