Wood Electric Fireplaces
What’s the best electric wood effect fire?
Some of the UK’s leading fireplace manufacturers use natural wood and wood-effect to create beautiful fireplaces that are efficient and stylish. Choosing from these models to find the best wooden fireplace for you will most likely depend on your personal style.
Natural oak is a classic, homely choice for a cosy atmosphere, while darker woods like walnut and mahogany can create an air of grandeur in your chosen room. You will also need to consider the design of your electric fireplace. Wooden beams across the mantel are an effective minimalist touch while full wooden fireplace suites are a favourite of those who are looking for an eye-catching centrepiece.
How do I install a wooden fireplace surround?
Most of our wooden fireplace models are pre-constructed and many benefit from flat-to-wall installation. This means you’ll simply need to place your fireplace wherever you want it in your room, plug it and start using it.
However, some of our models are inset fireplaces, meaning you may need more assistance with installation. If you are not confident in installing an inset fireplace, we recommend using a service like Rated People to find a qualified tradesperson near you.
How can I make my electric fireplace look real?
If you want to create a sense of realism with your electric fire, there are several things you’ll need to consider. First of all, choosing a realistic fuel bed, such as a log or coal-effect bed will make your fireplace appear more realistic.
You may also want to consider one of our models with a 360 flame effect or one that uses Opti-Myst technology to create realistic smoke effects. These models help create the illusion of a real fire without the need for a chimney breast or the constant need for fuel that comes with a gas or wood-burning fireplace.
Do electric fireplaces heat up a room?
Our wood electric fireplaces generate between 1-2kW of heat, meaning they produce around as much as a space heater. Our models are not intended to be the sole heat source of a room but may be suitable for warming smaller rooms.
Most of our models can be used independent of the heat as well, allowing you to enjoy the atmosphere of a fire all year round.
