Electric stoves provide a fantastic alternative to more traditional wood and multi fuel stoves. Not only are they easier to operate and maintain but also use an easily attainable source of fuel. If you desire a classic, traditional look, our stoves can also be supplied with realistic log or coal effects. Stoves provide a fantastic addition to a room, helping to provide that homely feel and create a warm, welcoming ambience. They provide aesthetically pleasing and efficient heat sources that are magnificent centrepieces to a room. They also provide additional flexibility in that they do not require a chimney or flue system, allowing them to be utilised in smaller spaces. However, as there is a lot of electric stoves on the market it is all to easy to get lost in the technical jargon. That is why here at East Midland Stoves we have compiled a guide on electric stoves to help you make your decision!
