    How to choose a traditional style

    While traditional-style stoves have kept up-to-date with the latest technical advances, design developments are also afoot.  The whole stove tends to be simpler in design with less finicky detail, with flat-top versions being the most popular.

    Shades of black

    While black is a timeless and versatile finish that fits in with just about every decorating scheme, there
    is more than one version to choose from. The traditional black “anthracite” finish characteristic of Morsø and Aarrow Ecoburn stoves is popular with customers of Stoves Online.

    Painted finishes are available too, but many customers opt for enamel, which offers a hard-wearing finish with a richness and depth of shade.

    For those who prefer to bring colour to their fireplace, enamelled finishes are available in deep greens, reds and blues; also look out for the striking metallic brown finish from Stovax and bronze from Charnwood.
