Do you want to add a modern rustic fireplace to your home – without spending a lot of time or money? The freestanding Real Flame Aspen Electric Fireplace plugs into a wall outlet, and the barn wood mantel give you that traditional built-in look.
Although inexpensive, this complete kit offers several convenient, user-friendly features. Plus, it has realistic flame effects, color-changing flames and a heater than can warm 1,000 square foot space.
Rustic Mantel Style Also Offers Hidden Storage Space:
If you like modern design combined with rustic style, then you’ll probably like this fireplace. For example, it features the weathered barn wood grey mantel with heavy-duty iron metal hardware accents.
At the same time, this unit combines the neutral color with clean lines and square shape. In other words, you get an upscale contemporary fireplace that fits well with virtually any style of home decor.
Note: This mantel also contains concealed storage space. The side posts flip open to reveal hidden shelves that measure approximately 6 1/2″ long x 8″ wide.
Realistic Flame Effect, Changing Colors & More:
This electric fireplace has a traditional look with its mantel and logs. However, you can switch up the flame colors to create a unique atmosphere, depending on your mood.
Plus, you can adjust the flame color or brightness with a click of a button on the included remote control. No need to get off the sofa and throw another log on the fire, right?
You can also turn off the heater and enjoy the ambiance of the flickering flames without heat. Now, you can enjoy your fireplace even in warm weather. Not to mention, you can save money too. =)
Note: Another feature I like about this LED fireplace is its glowing ember bed. This adds another realistic effect to the firebox, and regular gas log sets don’t have this feature.
This model uses ultra-bright Vivid Flame LED technology, which looks more realistic. You can see how the flames and ember bed look in real life in the video below:
How to Assemble and Install the Aspen Electric Fireplace:
Because this fireplace is a freestanding unit, installation is easy. Plus, electric heaters don’t require venting, so you don’t need to have a chimney.
In addition, the electric firebox simply plugs into a standard wall outlet. The mantel itself requires minimal assembly, which basically involves a screwdriver. (See the assembly guide.)
And at 114 lbs, the mantel and firebox provide a sturdy structure without being difficult to put together and move. In other words, this is a satisfying DIY project that won’t take you a lot of time.
