Do you want a compact fireplace heater that doesn’t take up much space and can fit in a bedroom or den? The Chateau corner electric fireplace makes great use of otherwise wasted area (corners) – and it looks like a more expensive built-in unit!
1. The Chateau Electric Fireplace Can Save You Money:
These LED fireplaces can add instant warmth and ambiance to a room for minimal cost. Plus, you can use the top surface as a small TV stand (the mantel measures 40 inches wide).
No venting, gas line or chimney is required. In fact, the Chateau fireplace simply plugs into a standard electrical wall outlet. Installation can’t get much easier than this!
Not to mention, this all-in-one package includes the corner electric fireplace with mantel. In other words, you don’t have to buy a mantel separately or build a surround yourself.
2. Contemporary Mantel Style is More Versatile:
This mantel features clean lines with a modern style yet a traditional look. As a result, it fits well in homes having a variety of design styles from contemporary to rustic to beach cottage and more.
Furthermore, you can choose from 3 different wood finishes. Consequently, you can somewhat customize your fireplace to fit the style and decor in your home.
3. Clever Mantel Design Makes Fireplace Easy to Install:
This corner unit looks pretty hefty, due to its over 2-foot depth. However, it has a cleverly disguised hollow backside. Therefore, it weighs less, is easy to set up and move (even for one person).
That said, the mantel does require some assembly, and putting the wood pieces together does take a little time.
Note: By the way, you can fold the top surface down and move this unit against a flat wall instead of a corner. Therefore, if you decide to move your fireplace and use it in a different location, you have lots of options.
4. Brighter, More Realistic Flames:
Compared to cheaper electric fireplace inserts, the Chateau fireplace uses ultra bright LED technology. You may pay a little more, but the flames look brighter and more realistic.
You can also change the brightness and color of the flames. Plus, you can do everything from the palm of your hand with the included remote control.
I paid more for this feature on my own electric fireplace, and I think it’s totally worth the extra cost. Many people don’t even realize that the LED flames are not real fire, especially from across the room.
Does This Electric Fireplace Produce a Lot of Heat?
This fireplace has a built-in heating component, so you get a combo fireplace/space heater in one. However, it doesn’t put out as much heat as other models like the MagikFlame Fireplace (1,000 square feet) or Grantham corner fireplace (400 square feet).
Note: The heater is designed to warm a room approximately 12 feet by 12 feet, so it’s ideal for a bedroom or den. However, it’s too small to heat a large living room or entire cottage.
In addition, the fireplace has a blower to better circulate the heat and warm the space. You can also use this unit without the heat and simply enjoy the flickering flames.
