Do you want a modern yet rustic fireplace that you can plug into a wall outlet? The Georgetown Farmhouse Electric Fireplace comes in a natural wood-look cabinet with barn-style doors. Plus, you can set a flat screen TV on top.
1. You Get a Fireplace and Space Heater in One:
First of all, the firebox provides both heat and ambiance. It can warm up a 400 square foot room, so you can use it for supplemental heat like you would a space heater.
In addition, you can use the fireplace without heat. Just turn on the flame function and enjoy the relaxing atmosphere without paying for extra heat.
2. Stylish and Functional Entertainment Center:
Second, you can use the farmhouse style cabinet as an entertainment center for media storage. Alternatively, it can hold books, games and a variety of other items discreetly out of sight (shelves are adjustable).
The classic barn door design also adds a casual, cozy feel to a room. Plus, the cabinetry acts like a mantel, so you don’t have to spend the time building one yourself.
You can choose from a few different multi-tone barnwood finishes, and they all feature industrial dark metal hinges to complement the natural wood look.
Note: In my own home, I’ve found that natural wood-look finishes don’t show dirt, dust, smudges, etc.. Therefore, they look great with minimal maintenance and don’t require constant cleaning.
3. The Cabinet Can Hold a TV AND Hide the Wires:
Third, the almost 5-foot length of the console allows you to set a flat screen on top. Therefore, you don’t have to buy a mount and hang your television on the wall.
The surface can hold up to 150 pounds of weight. Furthermore, the cabinet easily hides any cables and cords neatly behind it. (The backside also has cord management ports too.)
4. Portable Electric Fireplaces are Easy to Set up & Install:
Fourth, this fireplace is portable, easy to set up and install. In fact, the entire tv console with insert only weighs about 100 pounds. So, one person can easily move and slide it into place.
Unlike gas and wood burning hearths, electric fireplaces don’t require any venting. Just plug the unit into a standard wall outlet and turn it on. Talk about an easy and money-saving install!
5. Compact Design Makes this Fireplace Console More Versatile:
Fifth, this farmhouse fireplace doesn’t take up a lot of floor space. Although it looks large due to its elongated design, the cabinet only measures about 16 inches deep.
Therefore it doesn’t stick out too far from the wall. Consequently, I think you can use this furnitshing in master bedrooms, dens, dining rooms and home offices – in addition to a living room.
What You May Not Know: Because of its compact size, this modern farmhouse fireplace is best suited for smaller-sized living rooms, bedrooms or dens. It won’t overwhelm an average 10′ x 12′ room, but it can look awkwardly small in a large, tall space. For larger areas, choose this 80″ wide farmhouse-style fireplace cabinet.

Note: I really like the modern farmhouse design of this entertainment center. However, I think I like the multi-purpose functionality even more. Essentially, you get 3 pieces of furniture in one, which ends up saving you money.
