Sleek and streamlined, space-saving inset stoves from Eurostove are perfect for self-build projects


From self-build projects to new-build developments and home extensions, inset stoves are the perfect heating solution. Sleek, modern and fuss-free, their space-saving design is ideal for smaller rooms, compact living areas or for those who prefer the look of an inset design over a freestanding hearth and stove. As well as freeing up space and complementing a contemporary interior, inset stoves also come with a high heat output and attractive window design that allows for a full view of the flicking flames inside. Eurostove has a range of modern and traditionally-styled inset stoves to suit any home and by planning for an inset stove at the start of a project, the result will combine warmth and comfort with an attractive focal point as the hub of the home.

Inset wood burning or multifuel stoves are built-in units that are installed into a chimney breast or wall, leaving only the front of the stove exposed to create maximum impact. Minimal and fuss-free, these stoves are not only space efficient but they will also perfectly complement contemporary interiors and are the perfect choice for self-build projects, new-build developments and home extensions. Much more efficient than an open fire, an inset stove has a high heat output combined with character, warmth, comfort and a clean finish that is low maintenance and easy to use.

Eurostove has a wide selection of inset stoves to suit every project. The IQ33 multifuel model from Nestor-Martin is a bold and striking four-sided stove that sits flush with the wall. It comes with exclusive Woodbox® combustion technology to produce a high performance burn, which increases the fuel’s energy and adds a warm glow and inviting ambience to any room. It also features white, cast iron protection plates inside that reflect heat back into the room, reducing any heat energy that may be otherwise lost up the chimney and the surrounding wall. With a 9kW heat output, it’s ideal for larger rooms and open-plan spaces and comes with a remote control for easy operation.

Mendip Stoves’ wood burning Christon 750 offers a panoramic view of the flames within, via its wide glass window. A-rated for energy efficiency, the 8.7kW stove features a large insulated chamber to hold logs up to 60cm in length while the steel box-within-a-box design creates good airflow for convection heat to be evenly distributed to the room. Smooth and modern, the stove is available with a three or four-sided frame, allowing the Christon 750 to be installed on a hearth or set up high in a flush wall setting. The purchase of this stove also contributes £10 to the Woodland Trust, helping to plant native trees in the UK and allowing for a sustainable choice.

The Westfire Uniq 32 inset wood burning stove is another great space-saving heating solution, which comes with an insulated fire chamber to reflect heat back into the room. A+ rated for energy efficiency, it comes with easy to use air controls for a complete, cleaner burn that maximises fuel’s energy. With 5.9kW of heat, it’s ideal for all room sizes and its large glass window allows for a full view of the fire inside. A choice of frames offers personalisation with a clean, crisp edge. In a metallic anthracite finish, the stove is suitable for all styles of interior and it also comes with a closed combustion adapter that allows external air to feed directly to the fire to improve its burn.

The Christon 750 and Uniq 32 stoves are both Defra Approved for use in Smoke Control Areas such as our cities and large towns. All three stoves are EcoDesign Ready, making it a great investment for the year to come. The European-wide initiative to lower emissions comes into effect for stoves in the UK in 2022. The PM emissions limit for EcoDesign is 55% lower than for Defra exempt stoves and EcoDesign Ready models can reduce particle emissions by 90% compared to an open fire and 80% compared to an old stove. Upgrading your stove to an EcoDesign Ready model now gives peace of mind as well as helping to protect our planet.

“Inset stoves are a great way of saving space in self-build projects and new-build developments,” says Chris Baines, managing director of Eurostove. “As they are usually installed above the floor within the wall, they leave the floor area clear and also create a seamless, flush-fit effect, which suits contemporary living spaces beautifully.”
