15 TOP Corner Wood Stove Hearth Ideas: Modern, Rustic, Simple, Elaborate

| | ,

When it comes to looking for corner wood stove hearth ideas, you’re not alone!

It’s not unusual to position a wood stove in the corner, though it’s certainly not as common as positioning them elsewhere in the room.

Generally speaking, you can buy or have custom-made a corner wood stove or fireplace hearth from whatever material you like. It’s just a matter of working out which material you like best and your preferred shape.

These examples of wood-burning stove hearths in corners should help give you an idea of what’s available.

This first example from My Scandinavian Home has a small wood stove in the corner on tiles.

Tile can be a good choice for both wood stove hearths and as a heat shield behind. Many people effectively use tiles as part of a farmhouse style fireplace.

The downside is that they can crack a bit easier than some other types of hearth.

I can’t tell if this wood stove hearth is made from wood or tile, but my guess is that it is tile with a wood grain design.

Either way, it looks good, especially with the wood trim around the outside. However, the shape of the hearth is square with rectangular tiles, making the burner sit a little awkwardly in the corner.

I love the firewood rack!

This is a very modern corner wood stove on a pedestal from Fleming Stoves in the UK. 

In the description, they state that the hearth is made from black slate – a heavy-duty material that will no doubt stand the test of time.

I prefer this rounded hearth for wood stoves that have been positioned in corners.

Just for ideas and to show the different options, this is a glass hearth.

Yes, it will protect the flooring and makes the area feel a bit more open, but I think it looks a bit strange.

The glass will be toughened and be suitable for the task, but does it look good to you?

Another corner wood stove hearth idea – no hearth at all!

Instead, this raised burner has a bit of firewood storage underneath.

The risk is that embers and hot ash fall out of the fire and ruin the carpet. You would need a mat there at the very least.

This modern corner wood-burning stove hearth is another example of black slate (not that it’s super easy to see)!

It’s a thin hearth that basically matches the profile of the flooring.

This means the hearth isn’t a feature by any means, but it performs the function of catching sparks, embers, and dirt from wood.

 This small square hearth is a great match with this soapstone wood stove.

There is no trim around the tile, and it’s simply placed down on the existing floor tiles.

For those wanting a more vintage or antique aesthetic, there’s nothing wrong with a corner brick hearth!

It certainly matches this pot belly stove nicely, and you don’t have to worry about keeping it pristine and clean all the time, as you would with a more modern hearth.

This is the Contura 610 Wood Burning Stove on a round hearth plate.

I love the wood burner, but the circular hearth may not have been the best idea for the corner. I imagine it will quickly get dirty behind the burner and be difficult to clean.

Contura sell both glass and sheet metal hearth plates in a range of shapes and sizes.

This is a rather unique teardrop hearth with a wood stove from the Heta Scanline series.

Personally, I prefer the hearths like this which go back right into the corner. It doesn’t feel right when they have a gap at the back, right?

Another triangular corner wood stove hearth with a rounded front side.

It’s a shame they couldn’t have brought it in around the skirting right up to the window though. The space between the side of the hearth and the window isn’t fantastic.

This is the “ACR Stoves Neo 1C Woodburning stove, fitted onto a new Italian-honed slate hearth.”

This is the Danish designed TermaTech TT21R Wood Burning Stove.

It has been placed on a matt black Italian riven hearth. It’s simple, neat, tidy, and perfect for small wood stoves.

Here we have another pot belly, and likely a dual wood and coal burning stove at that.

It’s not the fanciest of hearths, but it raises the fire up, protect a bit of the floor, and makes it something of a feature.

A reclaimed brick hearth would look awesome in most house styles – especially with a big wood stove like this one.

The three-sided front on this hearth is good for wood stoves in the corner as well, it’s symmetrical and easy on the eyes!

This is another example of a corner wood stove hearth with three sides out the front. 

The hearth is made of stone tiles, and behind the wood stove is very nice as well!

Wood Stove Hearths For Corners

Finding the right wood stove hearth for corners does take a bit of searching, and hopefully, these ideas have helped.

In my opinion, it’s best to go to local showrooms to see what hearth materials are available in your area. Once you have the general shape that you prefer in mind, you can have a hearth made out of anything.

It’s easier to buy something off the shelf, but sometimes for corners, it’s best to go custom.

If you have recently installed a wood stove hearth into the corner of your living room, let us know how it went in the comments below!
