Thanks to recent innovation in fireplace design and technology, you can now keep yourself warm in the comforts of your own bed and also add a dash of sophistication to your space.

Why choose an electric fireplace for the bedroom?

For one, a chimney or any specialized form of venting is not required with a modern electric design fireplace. In terms of zone heating, the bedroom is the most ideal application for an electric hearth.

Since most electric fireplaces are rated to heat 400 square feet of space, this means it is more than enough to keep your bedroom warm and comfortable. Electric hearths are the perfect answer to zone heating plans.

You can easily control the intensity, brightness and even the colour of the flame, generating a mesmerising, cosy and warm atmosphere that is great for getting some good night’s rest.

Thanks to great strides in technology, you can now gaze at almost realistic flames dancing over your hearth.

One great benefit you can derive from an electric fireplace is that it doesn’t emit any harmful gases or fumes that could endanger your health. Additionally, they’re more cost-effective than traditional fireplaces.

The wall-mounted electric fireplace

Although electric fireplaces come in a wide range of styles and options, a wall-mounted one offers great design flexibility. It often favours contemporary or modern setup, though the surrounds are often available in white or black, which blends in just about any décor.

You also have the option of mounting the fireplace at any height or at a height that viewing from the bed is possible.

Helpful tip: To make sure that a specific design fits in your space, take some thumbtacks and string. Then, layout the rectangular shape of the hearth on the wall. Don’t forget to measure the dimensions.

This will help you visualise the exact size and placement of your wall-mounted fireplace.

Also, make sure to be familiar with all the available colours in the specific model you like.


Electric designer fireplaces add glamour to your bedroom and is perfect for those long dark cold nights. Imagine looking forward to getting into bed and feeling warm and cosy next to a beautiful fire and not having to worry about anything else. Let the fireplace take care of you.
