Warmandtoasty12-17_Layout 1 22/08/2016 12:46 Page 1LINCOLNSHIRETODAY13HOMESAutumn is on the horizon and with it colder daysand nights. There’s nothing more unsettling than ahome that is cold and uninviting, especially when itis supposed to be solace and sanctuary, all in one.But there are ways to brighten up the home, andgive it a warmer edge – and we’re not talkingabout a lick of paint.Heating and temperature control isn’t somethingmany people think of when it comes to decoratingthe home, but it really should be. Often left assomething to be undertaken when the house isalready so cold one could preserve food in yourhand, the oncoming autumn and eventual wintermay prove the incentive needed for many.It’s certainly worth considering how you’reheating your house, however – not least thanks tothe continued debate over rising energy prices.Indeed those in our region who specialise in greenenergy are suggesting that more and more homesare looking at renewable energy thanks to theincrease in gas and electricity bills.Despite this, and the financial incentives of, itremains that the most pressing concern for manylooking to heat their home remains as price andaesthetic. The former will always be aconsideration, but it’s good to see that the beauty,style and overall look of the house remainimportant. Price is also something that has wanedin the last decade, thanks to technology becomingmore affordable to manufacturers. At one point themore modern furniture was only really available forthose with a much higher quality of living, butnowadays can be found sold in many departmentstores and outlets. There is still a strong distinction betweentraditional and modern, especially when it comesto stoves, radiators or heating systems. Naturallythis depends on the overall style of a home orroom, but it’s worth mentioning that modernsystems tend to be more compact, often attachedto walls or taking up less space. This makes themparticularly good for smaller rooms, giving moreopen space for other furniture or just for people toenjoy. Traditional fireplaces and stoves do lend theirown appeal, however, particularly when they act asa centre piece for an entire room.

The goal is always to attract and engageattention, creating a theme that binds together various aspectsof not only the home, but the people who live there. A picturetells a thousand words, or so the saying goes, but the décor ofa home should tell a story about the family that live there.There are a few things to consider when it comes tochoosing the right kind of stove or fireplace for a room.Consider the purpose of the fireplace or stoveIs the system going to be used to heat a room, or is it purelyfor aesthetics? There’s no issue with the latter if that is thecase, many homes have purely decorative fireplaces. Thepurpose of the fireplace or stove is important because it shouldinfluence what is being considered. Some people make themistake of purchasing a fireplace with the intent to heatmultiple rooms, but this does not work out very well. Heatdissipates quickly, and attempting to spread it around willsimply end with a few warmish rooms and the main one beinga sauna. Questions as to whether you want a high-efficiency stove arealso important at this stage as well. Where a house is locatedmight determine whether they are allowed to burn wood andthus create smoke, but there are always gas or electricalternatives available.Plan for how large the room isThe size of a room can determine how large a fireplace orstove might have to be, and this is often a question bestdirected to those who supply them. There is nothing worsethan purchasing and installing a beautiful stove, only to realisethat it only really heats half the room and all the furniture isnow squashed as close to it as can be.PHOTO: SHUTTERSTOCK.COM/CASTECODESIGNThere are a lot of mathematical formulas that can be foundon the internet for best judging how powerful a heater needsto be, but we would still advise seeking the aid of someonemore experienced.The size of a room can also determine what style is used. If aroom is small or already quite busy, then a hole in the wallstove or fireplace can become a focal point without eating intolimited space. If that is not an option, then a smaller stovetucked away in a corner may be the better choice. Naturallythis has the opposite effect if the room is larger, where a too-small unit might look out of place of lonely. Decide on what style best suits the décorThere are numerous styles and fashions when it comes tofireplaces, and stoves and other heaters are no exception.Beyond the basics of traditional or modern, there are also sub-categories such as Edwardian, Victorian, wall-mounted, insert16 ÁThe size of a roomcan determinehow large afireplace or stovemight have to be12-17_Layout 1 22/08/2016 12:47 Page 4AIR POWER ARTAviation and WarbirdThemed Art PiecesAvailable In A Wide Variety of Prints, Canvases And Wall Artwww.airpowerart.co.uk16 LINCOLNSHIRETODAYHOMESor hole in wall fireplaces.One should also ask what kind of fuel is going to be usedhere as well, since this can add to the ambiance. Electric issafe and easy, requiring little installation or care in its use. Itcan be a little slower to heat a room, but the conveniencefactor can really win out.Gas, on the other hand, is much more efficient. It deliversmore warmth and clean, instant heat. Naturally theinstallation requires a little more effort, and care does need tobe taken when using it. Solid fuel such as wood or coal areneither the most efficient or easiest of things to use, but thereis no denying that they offer the most in terms of purepresence. A real display piece, they demand attention andsubtly convey class and style.Keep in mind any peripherals that may be neededA large fireplace that burns wood or coal may be a nicecentral point for a room, but it’s worth keeping in mind thatthe fuel has to be stored somewhere as well. If it’s neverPHOTO: SHUTTERSTOCK.COM/PAUL MAGUIREintended to be used, then wood or coal can be stored in thebasket. But otherwise it’s not uncommon to see a log stack ofsimilar nearby. These can be nice decorative touches in theirown, but only if space for them is planned beforehand.Nobody wants to be carrying logs of wood or messy coalacross numerous rooms. Not unless they are going to befollowed by a vacuum cleaner or mop. Always consider the costsThis is advice not just for the initial costs of a heating system,but also the long term as well. How much will it cost to run,will it require maintenance, will there be a warranty? Thankfullyworking out the running costs of a unit is relatively easy,particularly if it is gas or electric. Simply look at how much thegas or electricity tariff from your supplier is, and multiply it bythe heat input and how often you believe it will be used.If in doubt, a store specialising in stoves or fireplaces willalways be able to offer advice.

This ‘off-peak’ time can encompasseverything from entertaining the little ones, using it as anoffice, indulging a hobby or just about anything else theimagination can conjure up. If the act of eating itself can be relocated to sitting infront of the television, outside when the weather’spermitting or in the kitchen, then the same fluidity shouldbe applied to the dining room. There’s a tendency for anotherwise versatile space to go unutilised, and it’s abouttime that ingrained practice came to a stop. But getting the best out of the dining room meansNot just for diningNever mind the name, there’s more to the dining room than justsitting down to an evening meal. deploying a few crafty tricks. An extending or fold-outtable is a great way of clearing floor space when needed,especially as there are some extravagant extendingoptions out there – a far-cry from the tacky optionsavailable in the seventies and eighties. Another option is to have French doors put in, the buildof your house permitting, of course, which not only lets infloods of light, but also adds a sense of space andbreeziness. Suddenly, the room takes on a new lease of lifeand the possibilities are nigh on endless. A few carefully chosen furniture pieces can extenuatethe room without hampering any other of its new founduses, say a stylish drinks cabinet, a few chairs or a cutelittle writing desk.
