When it comes to recommending you an electric fire it comes down to more than just the price. We’ve considered lots of factors including the style, flame effect and fuel bed type.

How Wide Should a Media Wall Fire Be?

When creating a media wall using an electric fire a huge consideration is how wide the fire will need to be. You’ll want to buy an electric fire that is proportionate to the size of the room and if you’re fitting the fire beneath a television a big consideration is whether you’d like the fire to be the same width or slightly larger than your TV.

Which Flame Technology Should I Choose?

Each brand of fire creates its own unique flame technologies so there are plenty of options when it comes to the style of flames within the fire. We recommend watching the different product videos that are available, there are stunning three-dimensional flame effects and plenty of LED effects that add depth and allow customisation to the flickering flames.

Which Fuel Beds are Most Realistic?

Another design element to consider is the type of fuel bed within the fire. Most customers tend to choose a realistic log fuel bed but there are often different types of logs including silver birch and firewood. Pebbles or crystals within the base of the fire could give your new fire a refreshing and contemporary aesthetic this is something to consider too.

Are There Extra Features to Consider?

The final thing you may want to consider is whether you wish your fire to include any extra features. Lots of fires can be operated by more than just a remote handset, would you like your fire to be Alexa or Google Home compatible? Some built-in electric fires incorporate a sound element, allowing you to enjoy the relaxing sounds of crackling logs as well as the flickering firelight. Finally, some electric fires offer LED mood lights that can sit around the fire or within the media wall, these kits add the finishing detail to help create a super stylish end result.
