September 21, 2021


Media walls offer a slick solution for housing your TV, fireplace and storage, so it’s not surprising this hot new trend is taking off on social media. But if you’re thinking of adding a fuss-free focal point to your space, it’s worth installing an electric fire. Built into the wall with a streamlined finish there is a wide range of state-of-the-art electric fires that will add wow-factor to your living room, as well as warmth.

From fuel effects to smart tech, here’s what to consider…

Create a minimalist look

For a pared-back media wall there’s a huge choice of built-in electric fires to add style to your space. Moreover, there’s no need to worry about heat damaging your TV or décor, or needing to comply with combustible material regulations. Instead, whether you opt for a one- two- or three-sided fire, it can be fitted to give a minimalist floating look for a clean contemporary scheme.

Add a cosy ambience

During the dark winter months an electric fire is the perfect way to create a warm glow for spending time with friends and family. Why not take that welcoming vibe even further with complementary mood lighting? Gazco electric fires come with optional LED ambient lighting so that you can team your favourite flame and ember effects with your lighting scheme. Why not match the colours in your fireplace with eye-catching LEDs around your TV? Alternatively, consider adding an atmospheric glow to shelving and storage.
