Do you want an electric fireplace that can do more than just heat a room? A multi-functional free standing electric fireplace/TV stand can hold your television and hide clutter too. Plus, it can instantly upgrade your space.
1. This Electric Fireplace has Realistic Flames:
Not only does this multi-functional unit provide storage space, heat and a TV stand, it offers ambiance as well. The Spectrafire Flame technology produces very realistic looking flames, plus the logs and ember bed look like they’re burning as well.
By the way, you can adjust the flame colors, brightness, height and flicker to the visual effect you like best. And, you can do it all using a handy remote control (included).
In fact, you may decide to operate the firebox without the heat, just to enjoy the relaxing effect. Not to mention, by not running the heater, this unit is ultra-energy efficient. (The LED bulbs cost pennies per hour to use.)
2. Fireplace has Powerful Infrared Heater:
Having said that, the Highview Freestanding Fireplace can produce a good amount of heat when needed. The firebox can warm up to 1,000 square feet of space. Plus, the heater includes a fan that efficiently blows warm air out to heat your home faster.
On top of that, the infrared quartz heater helps to retain air humidity. In other words, it acts a natural humidifier and can prevent the air in your home from getting too dry.
3. Console-Style Fireplace Mantel Offers Several Advantages:
Compared to other electric fireplaces, this model conveniently provides storage as well. Use it as a media console, store speakers, gaming equipment, etc..
Not only does this “entertainment center” style mantel give your electric fireplace a finished look, it reduces clutter too. And, you can adjust the interior shelves to customize your storage space.
Plus, you don’t have to cut into a wall and connect wiring to install it like you would a recessed electric fireplace. In other words, you can save a lot of time and money on installation. =)
Note: Instead of real wood, this entertainment center is made of MDF particle board and wood laminate to keep the cost affordable. However, the wood grain finish looks surprisingly realistic, and the solid frame is really durable. (Not to mention, the detailed trim pieces and antique black hardware gives this furnishing a more expensive appearance.)
4. You Don’t Have to Mount Your TV on the Wall:
Hanging a flatscreen television on the wall requires buying a mount, installing the bracket and hoping it holds your tv. A console unit like this can support your flatscreen without having to hassle with a time-consuming installation.
Plus, the cabinet conveniently hides all power cords out of sight. And, it neatly stores DVD players, gaming devices and speakers right next to the TV.
Highview Console Fireplace Review:
Below is a review of the Highview Electric Fireplace Entertainment Center. Keep in mind that the model in the video looks a little different because the shade is “Embossing Oak” VS the darker brown “Canyon Lake Pine” shown on this page.
You can get a better idea of how the flames and logs look up close, as well as the realistic wood grain cabinetry.
Note: This entertainment console does require assembly, but it is fairly simple to put together. Then, you simply plug the fireplace into a standard wall outlet.
However, several people have asked about having someone else fully assemble the unit for them. I suggest contacting a service like Task Rabbit who can do the job for you at an affordable price.
