    Electric Fireplaces

    THE COMFORT OF ELECTRIC FIREPLACES

    Now you can enjoy that comforting, cozy feeling of relaxing in front of a fire in any room of your home. With a wide range of electric fireplaces to choose from, The Home Depot makes it easy for you to set the right mood, and the right temperature, with just the flick of a switch.

    FABULOUS FIREPLACES

    An electric fireplace is a welcome addition to any home, including condos, and is a great source of supplementary heat. They're also easy to operate, and come with little or no installation costs. With so many styles and features to choose from, it's never hard to find the perfect electric fireplace for your home.

    Wall-Mount Electric Fireplaces

    Wall-Mount Electric Fireplaces

    Wall-mount, plasma-style electric fireplaces have the advantage of taking up no floor space, making them ideal for small living spaces such as condos and townhomes. These fireplaces can easily be installed on any wall using a bracket or drywall studs, and offer a contemporary look and feel to any room. They're also perfect for adding a romantic touch to bedrooms, and their sleek design and shimmering crystal ember beds provide a unique focal point for any living space.

    Electric Fireplace Inserts

    Electric Fireplace Inserts

    An electric insert provides an array of design possibilities by giving you the freedom to match your fireplace surround or mantel to your existing home furnishings. You can get the look you want by surrounding your insert with natural stone, glass tiles, or a traditional wooden mantel, or by installing your fireplace insert directly into your existing fireplace opening, creating the perfect substitute to an ashy, messy, wood-burning fireplace.

    To learn how to get three very different looks with an electric fireplace insert, check out our Focal Point: Fireplaces.

    Electric Stove Fireplaces

    For a more traditional look, nothing compares to the old-world charm of a cast iron and steel electric stove. Electric stove fireplaces provide many of the same features of wood-finish electric fireplaces, but tend to be more compact and portable.

    Corner Electric Fireplaces

    Corner Electric Fireplaces

    If you don't want your fireplace to be your room's focal point, or if space is at a premium, consider the space-saving design of a corner electric fireplace. These models tuck into almost any corner, yet still offer all the ambience, luxury and modern-style of flat-wall electric fireplaces. In fact, some electric fireplaces can be assembled as a wall or corner unit, giving you the convenience to place your new electric fireplace virtually anywhere.

    PURCHASING TIPS FOR ELECTRIC FIREPLACES

    Remember these helpful hints for a more satisfying buying decision:

    • Take measurements to ensure the electric fireplace you purchase is the right scale for your living space.
    • For a uniform look, consider a fireplace that matches the style and colour of your home furnishings.
    • If you want your electric fireplace to be a focal point, its qualities should be interesting enough to covet attention.
    • Consider the realism of the flame design, and if the fireplace uses glowing logs or a crystal ember bed.
    • If you have children or pets, consider buying an electric fireplace with glass that remains cool to the touch when in use.
