Electric fireplace ideas.

While the installation here is not an electric fireplace, it does give a good idea of how stylish they can be. Things have come a long way since old fashioned designs that simply illuminated a few fire stones inside a hearth and now, electric fireplaces offer all the gorgeous good looks of a real fire, just without any of the running costs, mess or maintenance. This makes them ideal for homes that want the look of a fire, but don't necessarily require an extra dose of heating. New builds that could use a little more personality are the ideal recipients for a well designed and realistic decorative electric fireplace.

Regardless of whether a wood or gas-fired option is desired, or even a faux fire that is powered by electricity, this guide has some terrific suggestions included and should make the process of choosing a modern fireplace so much simpler.
