Electric fireplaces have become so popular today that hardly do you hear of the traditional wood option. This is because of the ease of use the fireplace brings along. They are energy efficient, cleaner and user-friendly. You can even control the unit with a remote control.
Before going for the options available, there are a few considerations to think of. How big is your house or the room? Does it have an built-in fireplace? Consider the décor of the room too. Go for a unit that complements and enhances the beauty. Functionality is also another option. This is especially for smaller rooms or when you want a unit fitted into the bedroom. Too big a fireplace might look less proportional to the size of the room. You also do not want people tripping over the unit just because it gets in their way.
Below are some options to think of:
The Infrared Fireplace
We have different infrared options that can go well with any décor. From ivory to stone and wood finish, there is a lot to choose from. The beauty of it all is that you can custom make the fireplace to fit your needs. Why would you opt for the infrared option? This works best for larger rooms of up to 1000sq ft. The infrared warms the people and objects around without heating up. It makes it an ideal choice for families with smaller children.
The fireplace comes in different colors, finishing, and sizes. There is always something to choose that can complement your décor. The fireplace is also lightweight meaning that it can be transferred to different rooms easily. All you need is to plug it into a household outlet then control at the touch of a button.
Mantel Home Fireplaces
A mantel fireplace is an ideal option because it not only heats up the room but can also be used as an all in one unit. You can also have it as a media stand. You can place the TV and other electronics on the mantel. Other than these, you can use other decorations but be careful not to put clothes or anything that can heat and ignite quickly when the fire is on.
The beauty of the mantel is that even when the fireplace is not in use, it still enhances the beauty of the room. There are different finishing and colors to choose from. Just placing the mantel at the corner of the room can create a beautiful impression.
If you want an all-inclusive system, make sure to check the weight the mantle can hold. Get a stronger mantel that can accommodate the electronics and other objects you may want to place on top. You can also put flowers or other accessories that add to the beauty around. Mantels are a great idea for smaller rooms because they do not take up a lot of space, but at the same time, they provide the required heating. You can also take a look at the mantels with drawers, some of which have removable shelves.
If you already have a fireplace, you can still use it without making any adjustments. You can get electric inserts that imitate real wood. You will have the pleasure of watching the logs burn and crackle. But unlike wood, they do not burn out or leave behind soot. Just plug in the logs then enjoy the warmth and relaxing ambiance. You can also insert a fire box into an existing fireplace. This arrangement works best for people who want to shift from using gas or firewood or just want to use an already installed fireplace. Instead of the emptiness, a firebox can be an ideal option.
Other than providing the necessary warmth, electric fireplaces are beautiful pieces. Even when not in use, their presence enhances the décor around. There are different options you can go for from traditional mantels to all modern units that can serve different purposes.
