What is your idea of a wood stove – a pot-belly stove with a huge black pipe for venting? Think again. Wood stoves are now made from steel, cast-iron or soapstone and are designed to blend in with a home’s interior design. While performance reins supreme, wood stoves are manufactured with windows for viewing and are available in many styles and colors (even red!). And, that pipe…it’s now sleek and can be colored to match the stove.
