Do you imagine how relaxing would be to have a fireplace in your home and at the same time not having to go out to get some logs to maintain the warmth but to have a space to store those logs inside your home? Of course the best and most usual place for the logs is to keep them outside, however it’s not so fun to refill your firewood supplies when it’s snowy and chilly outside. A decent storage space inside the home, would be a perfect solution for these situations. So, take a look at these 16 brilliant ideas how to create appealing firewood storage space at home and use them as inspiration to create one just in your home.
One possible solution would be to store vertically the firewood near the fireplace. You can use one single storage line, or eventually divide that vertical storage into a few smaller sections. This would be much easier for you to take the wood out of it and you would not have to reach to the logs only from the top of the pile. This storage type can be easily made out of a recessed wall from the left or right side of the fireplace.
There’s also another possibility to store your firewood and this would be in a horizontal space under your fireplace. You can improvise and make additional partition walls and leave space for your firewood storing, or create a lower partition and put a countertop on top of it while leaving some open space under the fireplace for your firewood. This option lets you more easily take out your firewood compared to the vertical storage.
Sometimes a simple support on wheels made of metal pipes and wood will be a perfect idea for storing the firewood right next to the fireplace. Instead of wasting your time trying to figure it out how to build in a storage space for the firewood in the wall, this is a great solution if you don’t want to make to much changes into your home and still to have one practical and useful solution for firewood storage.
Decorate the living room in rustic style and place some of the firewood that are necessary for these cold winter days in a shelve partition or an integrated circular element with shelves in the wall. Not only the firewood will serve you for keeping the home warm, but also would be an excellent idea for unique and beautiful wall decoration for the space in the living room.
If your fireplace is not attached to the wall and is placed somewhere in the middle of the room, there is a wonderful possibility to create a practical and useful element out of it for firewood storage. Make a whole concrete composition that would leave place for the fireplace, but also would have additional side storage space for the firewood.
