Why log burner trends are so popular in the UK 

Here in the UK, we tend to be big fans of cosy features. And what’s cosier than a fireplace?

Fireplaces have been a widely popular feature throughout the history of British architecture, and we’re yet to see a decrease in demand for them across UK homes. 

We have, however, seen some evolution when it comes to different types of fire features. For example, log burners have become increasingly desirable over the years!

Plus, many see a fireplace as the heart of the home, or any fire feature as a focal point of the room, adding an element of charm and sophistication to the existing space. So, it’s important to ensure it appears beautifully presented!

Style aside, many other advantages come with ensuring you have a fully functional fireplace within your home. These include: 

  • It’s a more cost-effective way of heating your home. 
  • Fire features tend to be more eco-friendly and firewood is a sustainable energy source. 
  • There are so many types and styles to choose from. 
  • Creating a warm and cosy ambience will be easier than ever. 
  • Fire features are known to increase home value. 

Popular log burner trends for autumn and winter 2022

So, whether you’re looking to add a stylish fireplace to your home or sprucing up an existing fire feature, see below to discover the most on-trend fireplace designs for autumn and winter 2022. 

Rustic mantels 

The first trend we’re seeing emerge is rustic mantels. If you’re a fan of ensuring your home is rich in character, this would be the perfect trend to incorporate within your own space!

Rustic mantels usually consist of adding reclaimed wood, and it’s supposed to look a little imperfect. The trend at the moment is for a rustic mantel to consist of a neutral tone, adding a homely touch to any fire feature. We really love this one! 

So, if you’re looking for a quick fix that’ll transform the look and feel of not only your fireplace,  but the entire room - try adding a rustic mantel for an effortless yet eye-catching finish.

Exposed brick 

Exposed brick fireplaces are set to be all the rage this autumn and winter season. 

This style is extremely popular amongst those who love contemporary farmhouse decor, but this look can fit into many other style aesthetics. Exposed brick has a very versatile appearance, meaning it’s virtually impossible to create an exposed brick fire feature within your home that looks bad. 

The great thing about experimenting with exposed brick is that you’ll be able to take it in any direction you desire. It’s the perfect balance between traditional and modern, tying in the best elements of each style preference.

For example, take a look at how Heather has styled her exposed brick fire feature within her home below! 

Heather has beautifully achieved that stunning balance between traditional character and contemporary style, which we think looks incredible in her home. Her dog Willow loves her new fire feature too!

Accent wall 

If you’re interested in following interior decor trends, you’ll know that adding an accent wall is a wonderful way to create more of a unique look within your home. So, it’s no surprise that this style has trickled down into fireplace trends! 

Because a fireplace acts as a natural focal point of any room, adding an accent wall gives the feature an extra little zhuzh. Plus, if you have an older fireplace in your home, this is the perfect budget-friendly way of adding a contemporary touch to a timeless feature. 

So, if you aren’t afraid of creating something truly eye-catching, we’d highly recommend picking a shade you adore and painting the wall where your fireplace is located. 

The oh-so-popular marble effect 

It’s the return of the marble effect! If you’re a fan of grandiose design choices, you’ll love this next stylish trend that’s becoming increasingly popular. 

Whether it’s by creating an entire marble-effect feature fireplace or a marble mantel for a subtle nod to the trend, there are no rules to follow when it comes to how you choose to style this trend within your own space.    

Marble is one of the most versatile styles to incorporate into log burner aesthetic, simply because of how many designs and colour finishes it’s available in. Perfect for creating a glamorous yet homely aesthetic!

Natural stone 

Particularly popular for the fireplace surrounds, natural stones are making a comeback. 

Natural stone fireplaces are renowned for their effortlessly luxurious and extravagant appearance, perfect for those who are looking to enhance their space by adding a lavish log burner feature. 

Similar to other trends, natural stone is also very versatile. There are so many ways you can choose to incorporate this look into your home, whether that’s by opting for more of a traditional soapstone finish or swaying more towards a modern grey slate finish. 

Stylish firewood storage 

If you’re planning to add an on-trend log burner to your home, you’ll likely want to ensure your fire feature accessories match the aesthetic you want to achieve. After all, it’s the little details that make all the difference!

It’s always a good idea to invest in fire feature accessories for your home that deliver long-lasting quality, without compromising on style. Plus, if you’re switching to a stove because of you care about the environment - it’s counterproductive to then use a tatty, plastic basket as firewood storage!
