Convert your existing fireplace

If you have a real fireplace but you don't want to keep burning real wood, this is the perfect option. Pop the log into your fireplace and you can have instant warmth and dancing flames with a click on your remote. I've had a wood-burning fireplace and electric, and I will always choose the electric.

Oh it's so cute!

If you don't have a space for a fireplace, you can still have an electric fire. This freestanding option from TURBRO looks quaint and adorable, but also packs a heating punch. You get the dancing flames of a fireplace, and underneath is a heating element that you can set to anywhere from 68-96 degrees. The best part is that since the heater is in the base, the stove itself doesn't get too hot to touch!

Sleek and beautiful

This freestanding fireplace is great for a house with a slightly more modern design. It's got all the bells and whistles that let you set the heat you want. Check the review: "Lightweight easy to move around if necessary. It’s very stylish. It definitely lives up to its promise of heating the room up quickly."

Unique and so cool

Here's an idea that I've never seen before: an electric fireplace integrated into a TV stand. I am in love with this concept. In most living rooms, you either have the TV as the focal point or the fireplace as the focal point. When you've got both, it makes the layout challenging. Solve that problem with this TV stand: fireplace and TV take place of pride in the living room. Also it has that perfect Joanna Gaines vibe that everyone loves.

Classic and elegant

Let's say you're doing a bit more of a house makeover and you want to add a fireplace to your living room. This mantle plus fireplace is fantastic because it's actually freestanding but it looks like it's built in to the house. I love the detailing on this: incredibly classy and lets you feel like you've got an old craftsman home without all the fuss of dealing with an old house. Sign me up!

Recessed fireplace

If you want to make your home look like a rich person on TV, a recessed electric fireplace is absolutely the way to go. Something about these babies just makes your house look incredibly cool. You can watch the incredibly cool flames while getting extra warmth from the heating unit. "What a product! Love this baby! So easy to install. It's recessed as you can see but can be surface mounted or free standing. The 2 stage heater is adequate for medium sized spaces and very quiet. Lots of adjustments for flame size, color and speed. Can be controlled by remote or front panel. Have had nothing but very good comments. Couldn't be happier."

Color options!

What, this is SO cool! This fireplace lets you change the color and speed and brightness of the flames and the stones at the base. I'm in love with the look of the blue stones with the red flames: it gives the whole thing a very "too cool" vibe. Seriously, there's fully 144 different color combinations you can do with this thing: no matter what your vibe it's got something for you.

Cute and efficient

On the other end of the spectrum, this freestanding fireplace is all about looking like a real fire. It's got a lovely white finish, and it's only 22 inches, so it's great for fitting in nooks and crannies to give your space just a pop of ambiance and heat. It's so easy to set up and start using. If you're in an apartment or smaller space, this is the fireplace for you.

Efficient and lovely

"This lil guy may be small but it does the job. I live in a lake house and the dining area is always chilly and with the thermostat being in that room the rest of the house was extremely hot. This did the trick. Dogs love to lay by it too lol" That's definitely what I want to hear, but this fireplace is also so classy looking. I love it.

Use your fireplace

If you've got a fireplace already but don't like to use it for real fire, this insert does exactly the trick. You just have to pop it in and you get realistic flames that warm the entire room. It's easy to use and looks surprisingly realistic.
