Create a stunning media wall with a sleek and seamless electric fireplace
Media walls are one of the biggest trends for living areas and open-plan spaces, so combine your TV with a designer electric fireplace for ambient heat and light all year round
Living rooms are the relaxing hub of the home, a space where you can unwind at the end of the day and spend a cosy afternoon catching up on your favourite box set or movie. When it comes to planning and designing this space, the first thing to consider is how to create a focal point and for the perfect blend of entertainment, illumination and warmth, a TV media wall with media wall fire is the ultimate centrepiece for your home.
A media wall offers year-round ambience, as it can incorporate your TV as well as a sleek electric fire that can be used to heat the room and provide flickering flames without the heat on warmer days. Media walls can also be designed with storage and shelving for books, framed photos, plants and ceramics, allowing you to fully personalise this functional and stylish centrepiece.
Stovax & Gazco have the perfect electric fires and fireplaces for an ultra-modern TV media wall, all of which are easy to install and will elevate your living space into something truly special. Here are eight inspirational ideas to get you started.
1 Floating cabinets
For a minimal look for a contemporary living space, a floating cabinet is a wall-hung design that appears to be floating in air thanks to its seamless and suspended style. Add integrated downlighting and it creates a stunning illuminated aesthetic after dark and on cosy winter afternoons.
Many inset electric Stovax fires are compatible with an optional mood lighting system to enhance this look, including the eReflex 195 RW with oak log-effect. Fully controllable from the Programmable Thermostatic Eco Remote Control, these flexible LED strips add ambience and are ideal for media wall installations. They can be placed around the TV or under shelves and create 13 vibrant colours as well as a spectrum mode for an ever-changing hue.
2 Textural walls
Turn your TV media wall into even more of a feature by cladding walls either side in textural timber. While flooring has seen a surge in herringbone and basketweave laying patterns lately, now it’s time for walls to take centre stage.
A Fusion electric fire is the perfect partner. It can be installed as a single sided, two-sided corner or three-sided fire and features an authentic birch log-effect, fuel bed uplighting with eight colours, internal log lighting, optional mood lighting and downlighting for the perfect ambience, all day, every day.
3 TV as art
Your media wall can also become a work of art thanks to the latest TV designs that can appear as framed art installations when not in use. Ideal if you don’t want your TV to look like a TV! Add your own artwork on surrounding shelves, bookcases or walls and complement with ambient heat and light from a Stovax electric fire.
4 Wood panelled media walls
A timber panelled wall gives your space a warm and organic feel, adding character to a modern new-build or enhancing a period property. It also adds another textural element and creates a feeling of warmth and comfort, cocooning you in your restful retreat ready to settle down with the warm glow of your electric fire.
5 Room dividing media walls
A media wall doesn’t have to be built as an existing wall, as it also provides the perfect room divider in an open-plan space. Use to create zones within a large kitchen-living area, perfect for entertaining family and friends. A Fusion electric fire can be a two-sided corner or three-sided fire that can be enjoyed from all angles, whether dining, catching up over drinks or grabbing a coffee.
6 Integrated shelving
For a seamless look, built-in shelving within the media wall is ideal for displaying ornaments and framed photos and looks effortlessly sleek with a frameless TV and linear electric fire such as the Gazco eReflex 135RW, which features the latest Chromalight® technologies as well as app control, or the eStudio 165R inset design.
7 Media walls with illuminated shelving
Add a luxurious look to your media wall installation with illuminated alcove shelving on either side of the TV and fire. The Gazco eReflex 195RW is the perfect electric fireplace for this style, as it enhances a large frameless TV and provides instant heat, illumination and ambience at the touch of a button.
8 Two-tone décor
Use your creative flair to produce a two-toned decorative design for your media wall. Paint the lower level in a contrasting colour and enhance it with a minimal eReflex fire with log fuel effect.
Stovax & Gazco electric fires are available from our network of trusted independent retailers across the UK.
