Why you need a White Log Burner
While it might seem controversial we know, but stoves are available in more colours than just black, and here is why we think you should consider a white log burner. If you took a snapshot of the stove market today you would be forgiven for thinking that log burners were only available in black. Some manufactures have offered browns, greens and blues for some time, but never white. When cast iron stoves were being enamelled we came close with several brands offering an ivory enamel option on their traditional models. These stoves looked great when placed into a fireplace opening, a contemporary counterpart was still unavailable.
Jotul Stoves introduced the F373 White Log Burner in 2010
Then came the revolution. Advances in the enamelling process meant that stove manufactures were finally able to start offering white versions of their stoves. Among the first to introduce a contemporary white woodburner in the UK, Jotul Stoves introduced the F373 White Log Burner in 2010. While sales were slow at first as with any ‘new idea’ after a few years sales started to pick up and before long the F373 white log burner became a firm favourite for stove owners across the UK. We are huge fans of white wood burning stoves, they offer a beautiful ‘Scandi-chic’ appeal and will brighten up any room. A white log burner will natural become a focal point of any space, no longer simply just a provider of warmth, but an attractive and key element of your homes decor. Here’s 10 of our favourite white log burners available right now:
10. Rocal Prune White Log Burner
While not truly a white log burner, we felt the Rocal Prune deserved a place in our top 10 favourites. The Prune is a more of a two-tone stove, with the bottom half of the stove in black and the top section and flue cover in white. We are big fans of Rocal stoves as a central focal point, there are few stoves that can offer a more impressive in room experience.
