Large Entertainment Center with Fireplace & More… (DIY)

Do you want an easy, affordable way to install a fireplace, flat screen TV and custom-looking cabinets in your living room? The Monte Vista Entertainment Center with Fireplace provides a complete unit that lets you do all 3.

Monte Vista Antique Grey Entertainment Center with Fireplace

Transform a Plain Room into a Comfortable Space in 1 Day:

Within a day, you can transform a dull space into a cozy, relaxing spot perfect for entertaining. Plus, you can save money and do it for much less than what you’d pay a contractor or even a handyman!

Unlike smaller fireplace media units or TV stands, this entertainment center can take up a big portion of a wall. As a result, it looks more like a custom, built-in shelving unit (and looks more expensive than it costs).

Fireplace Entertainment Center Shelves Offer Lots of Storage:

Not only do you get lots of shelves for living room storage, you get a fireplace mantel and a “frame” around your television. In other words, this is a really affordable way to make your living room (or family room) look like a million bucks.

There’s a spot for a soundbar, blue tooth speakers, stereo and gaming equipment, books and more. You’ve got 10 shelves with plenty of space for all sorts of items.

Electric Fireplace Plugs into a Standard Wall OutletNote: Although not a quick assembly, the Real Flame Monte Vista definitely takes less time than a traditional fireplace installation. Plus, you can just plug the fireplace into the wall and turn it on.

Not to mention, you can easily hide TV and firebox cords behind the bookshelves for a clean, finished look. This wall unit certainly comes with its perks.

Impressive Fireplace Insert Makes Your Room Ultra-Cozy:

The large firebox itself looks pretty impressive. It has a modern linear style that measures almost 40 inches in length, and it looks like a built-in fireplace.

In addition, the unit offers a variety of different flame colors and brightness levels. So, you can change up the visual appearance depending on your mood.

Electric Fireplace Flame Color Options

Note: Well-made LED fireplaces like this model project flickering flames that look real. In fact, some people will mistake your electric flames for a gas fireplace.

They don’t even suspect that you simply plugged the firebox into a standard electrical outlet behind the entertainment center. No venting or chimney required. =)

The fireplace also acts as a heater, and it puts out a significant amount of heat too. In fact, it can heat up to 1,000 square feet of space.

That said, you can enjoy the flames without turning on the heating element. Therefore, you can use your LED fireplace year-round without using a bunch of electricity. (I love this money-saving feature because LED bulbs cost virtually pennies per hour to run – cheap!)

On top of that, you can operate the fire and heat using a handy remote control from anywhere in the room. Plus, you can set a timer for the fire/heater to turn off at a specified time. Talk about convenient!

Compared to typical DIY modular furniture, this media unit offers a more sophisticated and custom-built look. I like how you can save money by “building it yourself”, yet have the media center look like you could have hired a professional cabinet maker.
