Napoleon Allure – Making an Electric Wall Fireplace Look Built-In

Napoleon Allure Electric Fireplace

This room may appear to have a built-in fireplace. However, you are simply seeing Napoleon Allure wall-hanging electric fireplace.

Do You Hang this Fireplace on a Wall… or Recess it?

You can actually hang or recess this unit flat into a wall.

If you hang the fireplace, it only extends 5″ out from the wall. Therefore, you can easily build a frame or add molding around it to give it a “built-in” look without having to punch a big hole in your wall. In addition, it comes with a built-in mounting bracket.

Alternatively, you can recess the unit into a wall for a clean, sleek look. The fireplace’s simple and strategic design makes it really easy to install because the vents and touch screen control panel are located on the front.

You can just plug your fireplace into a standard 120V wall outlet, or you can hard wire it.

Note:The package includes a paintable cord cover. So, even if you hang your fireplace on the wall, you can easily conceal the cord out of sight!
