Hi, we are installing a stove in a new build and I'm looking for some design advice.
The stove is to be located in a purpose built corner alcove approx 5ft high and 3ft wide.

We are looking for suggestions on how to finish the surround. The stove will set set on a plinth approx 9 inches high. We have been thinking about tiles, but there is disagreement on whether to put a tile surround around the front of the alcove. There is concern that a tile surround night look a bit dated. The thought is the tiles will be a marble effect.

Any suggestions (and images) to show what we could do here?

From looking on Google most corner stoves are not put into alcoves and have an exposed pipe to the ceiling.

What are peoples thoughts?

If there is a better forum to ask this question, please let me know!

Thanks.

Pinterest is much better than Google for this.

Good Morning

Whatever you decide to line your alcove with it needs to be made of a non-conbustable material.

A grey slate tile might be nice. Or you could just plaster it and paint to go for a very minimal look.
Alternatively you could have open brick or stone behind the stove.

Hope this gives you a few ideas
