Firewood Storage Solutions: Find a Dry Storage Area
When it comes to finding the perfect place to keep firewood, one of the most important factors you should consider is how dry the area is. Protecting next winter’s firewood from leaks, damp or spills is critical, as the wood will need to dry out over the coming months to ensure it burns properly once winter comes around.
For those who are willing to sacrifice garden or garage space, a log store could be the ideal solution. These simple containers are purpose built to keep logs dry year-round, ensuring that when you next fire-up the log burner, stove or fireplace, your wood will be in perfect burning condition.
Wood stores are not a ‘fix-all’ however, while they do offer a secure solution to firewood storage, they are generally large, clunky and a little unsightly. For those who aren’t willing to sacrifice the space and aesthetic value of their garden, there are other solutions available.
Firewood Storage Solutions: Buy as you Use!
Readers who only use firewood occasionally couple easily sidestep the need for firewood storage altogether.
There are many stylish log baskets or carriers that can sit comfortably beside your fireplace that not only acts as a convenient place to keep a small amount of firewood, but also adds to the overall aesthetic of the room. Vintage or Country Farmhouse interior décor styles benefit massively from small additions such as a small stack of firewood, meaning if you don’t need space for a large store of firewood, this is a stylish solution that could be perfect for you!
