We have a wood stove which we are going to be using soon. I am trying to rearrange the living room so there is nothing close to it. How far does furniture need to be from a wood stove ?

  • I googled this and for the most part it says as far away as possible. It also said you should not smell smoke in your house, this is a sign it is not installed properly. Always always have a carbon monoxcide detector working in your home in addition to smoke alarms. Sparks jump...so no drapes, furniture, or carpeting etc anywhere near the stove.
