Looking for ways to maximise your living area while maintaining a stylish aesthetic? Enter the wall-mounted and inset electric fireplace, two modern and functional solutions that not only provide efficient heating but also add a touch of elegance to any room whilst saving space. In this blog post, we will delve into the world of electric fireplaces, exploring their sleek design, versatility, and creative possibilities.
Wall-mounted and inset electric fires are innovative heating solutions that often save space and offer a contemporary aesthetic. Unlike traditional wood burning or gas log burners that require a qualified professional for installation, these electric counterparts are easy to install and can often be fitted by the savvy DIY-lover!
One of the standout features of wall-mounted electric fireplaces is their ability to save space. Mounted directly on the wall, they eliminate the need for hearths or mantels that can take up valuable floor space. This makes them an excellent choice for smaller rooms, apartments, or homes where every square foot counts.
Wall-mounted electric fireplaces are renowned for their space-saving design, but they’re not the only ones in the game. Inset electric fires, many designed specifically with slimmer depth like the Onyx Fusion electric, also excel at maximising your living space. These sleek appliances can be seamlessly integrated into walls, providing the illusion of a fireplace with little need for extra floor space. Faux chimney breasts can be built to house the fire, but with far less protrusion into the room than a conventional chimney breast complete with a hearth.
One exciting way to incorporate an electric fireplace into your home is by designing a media wall. A media wall combines entertainment features like a TV or audio system with the fireplace, creating a focal point that’s both functional and visually appealing. We love how the Gazco eStudio electric fire looks in this media wall.
The beauty of a media wall is that you can build it completely bespoke to your needs, whether that’s surrounding the fireplace with custom shelving units to display art, books, or decorative items, or simply creating the ultimate entertainment centre.

It might help you to understand the difference between a modern electric fire and an electric stove. Wall-mounted and built-in electric fires are designed for space-saving and integration into the surrounding wall for visual appeal, while electric stoves are freestanding for instant placement wherever you want in a room.
To choose the right electric fireplace for you, consider factors like room size, design preferences, and customisable features, such as flame brightness, colours, and whether or not you need app control.
The design possibilities are virtually endless across both inset and freestanding options, whether your style is contemporary or traditional. Some inset electric fires closely simulate the look of real log burners, giving you the same ambience of a traditional fireplace, but all at the touch of a button. One thing worth remembering is that electric stoves and fires can also be used without the heat, making for ambience all year round – even in summer!
