Easy-to-Install Fireplace that Saves You Money Too?

Before and After Room with Electric Fireplace and Mantel - Easy Decorating IdeasThen, you just push the freestanding electric fireplace against a wall and plug it in. You get the ambiance and warmth of a fireplace without all the work. Plus, you can always move the unit to a different location, since it’s not permanently attached to your home.

For this reason, these freestanding units make a great solution for guest cottages, basements or apartment living. You can quickly turn a plain room into one that is warm and cozy without having to break open a wall.

In addition, electric fireplaces can provide warmth to spaces that don’t have a heat source. Or, you can use them for supplemental heat without having to turn on your home’s furnace. Consequently, they can save you even more money beyond the installation savings.

Hidden Storage Inside Fireplace Mantel:

This mantel has a really unique feature – the hidden media shelf located above the fire box. As you can see from the photo, the shelf is completely invisible behind the cabinet door.

Hidden Media Cabinet Built-in to Electric Fireplace Mantel

This mantel shelf makes the perfect spot for tv electronics, remotes, gaming equipment, etc.. Minimize clutter in the room while also keeping small items easier to find.

The storage area itself measures almost 3 1/2 feet wide, about 9 inches deep and about 5 inches tall. It’s not extra large, but it can fit plenty of equipment.

Well-Designed Firebox Heater:

LED flames can look very realistic in these modern high-tech fireplaces. In fact, the logs and ember bed have a pulsing glow as the flames flicker. It can be hypnotic to watch, and I like these lit-up logs even better than faux log sets in many gas fireplaces.

Fire Box Features, Including Heater Vent, Hidden Control Panel, Realistic Flames and Glowing Ember Bed

While the flames are vibrant and colorful, the heater vent an on-screen control panel look virtually invisible. Therefore, they don’t detract from the ambiance of the fire. Quite the contrary, they blend in with the black metal frame so you don’t really see them.

This package also includes a user-friendly remote to control the flames, heater, timer, etc.. So, you may never even need to use the on-screen panel anyways.

Note: You can use this electric fireplace with or without the heater. In other words you can enjoy the flickering LED flames without paying for heat. LED lights cost pennies per hour, so this alone can turn into a huge cost savings.

Fireplace Mantel with Modern Farmhouse Style:

Real-Looking White Stacked Stone on Freestanding Fireplace MantelAlthough this white mantel has a clean, contemporary look to it, it also has some rustic farmhouse style. The fire box is surrounded by faux stacked stone (which actually doesn’t look fake at all).

Not only does this give the fireplace a modern farmhouse aesthetic, but it also looks more expensive and custom. (No, this is not a cheap, cheesy fireplace.)

Speaking of good-looking fireplaces, the manufacturer recommends not placing a TV on top of the mantel.

Yes, the unit can hold up to 85 pounds of weight. However, a flat screen TV mounted on the wall above the mantel will look much more sophisticated. Thus, elevating the appearance of your electric fireplace even more.

Electric Fireplace Entertainment Center with TV StandNote: Alternatively, you can opt for an electric fireplace entertainment center that doubles as a tv stand. It comes with built-in side bookshelves for additional storage.

This unit has a more casual cabinet feel than a traditional fireplace mantel. As a result, setting a television on top of the cabinet looks fine.
