5 Modern Stove Designs That Will Knock Your (Warm) Socks Off

5 Modern Stove Designs That Will Knock Your (Warm) Socks Off

Maybe you remember your mee-maw’s wood stove, or maybe great mee-maw’s. They were short, fat, black, and a little boring. It was also warm, practical, charming, quaint, and saved your mee-maw and pop-pop quite a bit of money on their heating bill. Modern fireplaces are all the rage with over 60% of home buyer’s willing to pay extra for them. Just like modern fireplaces, modern stoves are becoming increasingly popular.

Modern stoves tend to come in either wood or gas versions, so if you have natural gas in your home, you are not necessarily stuck dragging wood in every few hours. Gas stoves also provide additional options for venting and, depending on your situation, you may be able to run one without a chimney. Whether you decide on a no hassle gas stove or prefer the ambiance of a real wood, your modern stove will be capable of heating a 2,000 square foot room under normal operation conditions.

Check out these modern stove designs to see why they convey a sense of sophistication and charm.

            Stoves Give Any Room Wow Factor

            Whatever your taste in modern home decor, stove manufacturers like these have the right fit for you. The great thing about a stove like this in your home is that it becomes a focal point and conversation piece. If you’ve ever been in a home with a fireplace or stove that’s lit, people tend to naturally congregate around the appliance. There is something about an open flame that will always draw the eye.

            Stoves Are Practical And Beautiful

            We find that many homeowners want the practicality of a stove as well as the ambiance it creates. Modern stoves are more efficient, safer for your home, and safer for the environment than the stoves of yesteryear. In my part of the US, we have had some epic blizzards that took the power out for up to two weeks. Those of us without a secondary heat source experienced a bitter cold home in addition to burst pipes. Many of these stoves come with an electric blower, which will help move the heat around the room, however even without that feature, these stoves will radiate enough heat so that even open floor plans feel toasty.

            Create an Eye-Catching Logo to Focus Your Brand

            We live in a world where brands surround us. We recognize companies through their logo designs rather than their service or products. Our philosophy is that if it’s a brand, it means it’s good. Why? Because it’s known and recognized by all. Youngsters prefer to wear Nike or Reebok footwear, even if there are the same designs in local companies, just because they will be easily recognized as branded by their friends and family.

            A logo is a statement of a business or a company and a sign of individuality, which distinguishes one brand from another. Even a child would recognize the M of the McDonalds, even from far away. The people use the logo to associate with the brand or the company. Creating and setting up a business is easy, but making it a brand is difficult. To make your business a brand, the most important thing is to create an eye-catching logo design.

            Gauge the Market

            Study your business or company and see the competitor company’s logo designs. Know the business in and out and write down all the important points and use them to create a related logo design.

            Research

            Conduct research about the client and customers and the target market. What is the business about? If the products cater to children then create a colorful and lively logo, while if it is for corporate parties, then create a formal and attractive logo.

            Link It

            Whatever logo you design, keep in mind that it should relate to the company and the nature of business. The logo is used to recognize the brand, so it should have connections with the company’s history and future.

            Use Resources

            There are some applications available for you to download and create a perfect logo. You can use the variety of samples and tweak it a bit to your liking by changing the colors or font.

            Font and Colors

            Always make sure to use bold and striking colors. Study the color therapy and what affect each color has on the onlookers. Choose bright colors for an attractive and appealing logo design. Use creative fonts so that it instantly hooks up the customers.

            Customize

            Learn Photoshop, Adobe, and Illustrator for that eye-catching logo design. Create a customized logo design with abstracts and images, or choose a picture. You can also make use of solid shapes or go with a flow and retro design. A tagline or your company name or your name initials can also be a logo design. Just incorporate it in a unique way, so it stands out from the others.

            The logo is a signature of your brand; it is one of the company’s most valuable assets. A well-designed logo is the one that exposes your business and communicates your message to the public.  Designing an eye-catching logo is not that simple as it sounds; it demands a lot of creative imagination and out of box thinking.  Whatever logo you design, ask your friends and family to view and ask them their suggestions and change and set it accordingly, as they represent the public. A well-designed logo should represent the true and perfect image of a company to the people. Make sure your logo design represents your brand and has striking effects.
