If you’re thinking of selling your home and want a way to make it more attractive to buyers, a wood burning stove could be the feature you’ve been looking for. Few things say ‘cosy’ better than a real fire, casting its glow and heat over the room. However, traditional fireplaces are difficult to maintain and keep clean – not to mention they’re not energy efficient or environmentally friendly – so an open fireplace isn’t the best way to attract buyers to your property. A woodburning stove is the modern and efficient way to bring the benefits of fire into your home while also potentially increasing its value. If you live in a rural area a wood burning fireplace is ideal; wood fuel is often abundant and a wood burning fireplace is an efficient way to keep a traditional feature.
Investing in a wood burning fireplace gives the impression that your home is up to date, while the aesthetic appearance of a fireplace insert complements the traditional surroundings that many rural properties have. It’s estimated that installing a wood burning stove or fireplace in your home can increase the value by up to 5 percent!
At Contura we have a huge selection of woodburning fireplaces and stoves to bring affordable energy efficient heat into your home while complementing your interior decor. Our Swedish inspired stoves are all built to the highest standards of quality, boasting over 70% energy efficiency and a range of optional equipment to help you get the very most out of your fitting.
Our cast iron fireplaces offer excellent heat retaining properties, meaning they continue to give out heat long after the fire within has burnt out. Masonry stove fireplaces are a fantastic choice for those that want the look of a built in fireplace, while properties with a more modern feel may be more suited to our free standing wood burning stoves, which give you the freedom to turn the fire to suit the layout of your room.
