As much as we love our fireplaces, knowing where to store wood can sometimes be a headache. In most of our living rooms, it is usually the fireplace (if we are lucky enough to have one) that is the main attraction, the focal point of the room. However, when it is well thought out, storage furniture for firewood (or log rack) can sometimes go so far as to steal the show! Let’s see how.
1. Reusing an old cart on wheels
If you have very little space around your fireplace to store your firewood , you can provide a mobile support (on wheels) that you can easily move. For example, think “recycle” by reusing an old cart on wheels on which you will install (or have installed) old tubes or wrought iron uprights . The latter can go as high as you want and you will therefore place it right next to the fireplace, which will allow you to store more logs. In addition to being very original, this metal support is also practical with its wheels.
2. Store wood under the fireplace
Store from below. Of course, the situation must still be suitable, but if you have not yet installed your fireplace, here is an idea that may be interesting. We like the idea here of being able to store wood under the fireplace because visually the effect is nice.
3. Design to be planned during the construction of the house
Here again, a design to be planned during the construction of the house and the fireplace. Being able to integrate a storage space directly into the wall of this living room is very practical because it is an “integrated” design . As seen in the photo above, homeowners can store an impressive amount of wood without it being offensive. Aesthetic and practical!
4. Sliding drawer under the fireplace
Why not provide a sliding drawer under the fireplace to store the logs? Useful if you do not want the logs to be visible. On the other hand, we will not be able to store tons of it!
5. Logs are stored in a small space reserved
Here is a very cool wood storage tip. The logs are stored in a small space reserved for this purpose under the concrete fireplace. This design saves a little space in the living room, however you will have to bend down to retrieve them. Watch out for your back and knees!
6. Form of a cupboard or open shelf
One can also compartmentalize storage in the form of a cupboard or open shelf right next to the stove . Here we can see that the owner has reserved a nice space to store a maximum of firewood by taking up the soft tones of this room (very Scandinavian by the way).
7. Reserve a depth of at least 50cm
It is thus possible to create a storage space within the same wall. One will reserve a depth of at least 50cm to do so . It is also the easiest way to store wood. In the example above, the light filament bulbs bring a little softness in a relatively “raw” space although design.
8. Unique storage idea
There are also furniture or accessories that will allow you to store a little wood for the fireplace if you have not planned space beforehand. As can be seen in this living room, it’s open storage cabinet fits efficiently and discreetly into the room.
9. Store the wood sideways
Even more discreet, you can store the wood sideways, just behind the fireplace. A solution for those who do not want the logs to be visible in the room.
10. A nice piece of furniture
In this living room arranged around the fireplace, we can notice that the owners have decided to highlight the wood, unlike some examples above where the objective was to hide any log that protrudes! This is a nice piece of furniture designed to be the continuity of the fireplace in terms of colors and materials . On the other hand, it will be noted that all the logs are cut to the same length. Notice to maniacs ..!
11. Fireplace inserted in a kitchen island
Here is the original idea of a fireplace inserted in a kitchen island . There is the fireplace on the right and the storage space on the left under the island, which allows you to have a few logs on hand to supply the fireplace. Pragmatic!
12. Purely decorative
A very interesting idea and very inexpensive. Be careful, however, this is purely decorative because if you have to remove the belts each time you need a log …
13. Long wardrobe like cupboard for wood storage
It is a magnificent achievement here of course, but you will need a (very large) ladder to get the wood, not to mention that you can lose your balance with one or two logs on your arms on the way down. Finally, never mind, the whole is extremely refined and we love it!
14. Original and decorative
A bright idea that this platform in natural stone (marble) to be able to store wood just below. It’s as original as it is decorative.
15. Storage space located under the fireplace
Accessible from both sides of the wall, this storage space located under the fireplace brings a lot of charm and character to this already “neo-rustic” living room.
16. Space reserved for wood in an exposed stone
We really like here the space reserved for wood in an exposed stone insert. The combination of wood and stone is here the strong point of this piece. On the other hand, we might have personally reduced the size of the wood storage space a bit (a bit massive for our taste).
17. A new idea to store
Here is a new idea to store different types of species and sizes of wood in your living room. You had to think about it!
18. Fireplace or the wood storage space
Words fail here. Whether it is the fireplace or the wood storage space, we are captivated by the aesthetic performance of this project.
19. Above the fireplace
It is also possible to store the wood just above the fireplace, so as not to strain your back. We are here immersed in the purest Scandinavian style with this type of arrangement.
20. Storage built into the corner of the fireplace
Charm to spare. This type of fireplace space arrangement is rather rare, in the sense that the storage space has been built into the corner of the fireplace. An interesting idea to remember if you plan to rearrange your own.
