Contemporary Classic Fireplace

Contemporary Classic Fireplace

What we like: Clean and classic look, multi-color adjustable flames

What we don’t like: Noticeable blower sound

Perfect for: Compact spaces

Not so great for: Large rooms and high-ceiling interiors

With its clean and timeless aesthetic, this corner electric fireplace will bring a dominant statement into your living spaces. It uses infrared technology and can be controlled through streamlined buttons to give off a fire-like multi-color glow. Made of solid wood and comes in espresso, dark walnut, and white wood finishes.

Easy to assemble with adjustable flame color and brightness. The blower does have a noticeable sound but it’s not loud that it gets in the way of your relaxing moments. At the same time, due to its size, it has challenges in warming up a large room. We recommend installing this in a small to average-sized room or apartments.

Fireplace with Fluted Sides

Fireplace with Fluted Sides

What we like: Realistic appearance

What we don’t like: Frequency interference with other remote-controlled devices

Perfect for: Rooms 1000sqft and below

Not so great for: Using as a TV mantel

Large and perfectly realistic, this corner fireplace with electric stove is a great addition to your home. Made of solid and manufactured wood, it features artificial logs that give it a convincing representation. It can heat a space of up to 1000sqft, while its mantle can hold up to 30lbs of décor.

Since it can be controlled with a remote, some users have observed that the fireplace’s remote interferes with the TV remote. Because of this, there is a possibility that the heating will turn on and off when you’re switching channels. One way to solve this is by turning off the sensor and using the front buttons for the fireplace. Another solution is by placing the TV somewhere else and not on the mantel to prevent overlapping frequencies.

Buying Guide

To find the best corner electric fireplace insert for your specific setting, here’s what we recommend keeping in mind:

  • They aren’t a one-size-fits-all solution, so you must measure the width, depth, and height of your existing fireplace to be sure that your new insert will be a perfect match
  • If the heating side of things is just as important as the ambiance element, consider the size of your room: for example, in smaller ones (around 400 sq feet) you can easily use a forced fan insert, whereas infrared quarts units are a wiser choice in larger rooms (1,000 sq feet)
  • Still, keep in mind that a corner electric fireplace insert won’t usually be able to warm up a much bigger setting (over 1,500 sq feet)
  • Finally, consider its aesthetic value by choosing a model with the right effect for your preference (e.g. fake flames, warm or blue colors, etc.)

Yes, an electric fireplace insert can be placed in an existing fireplace as long as there’s a source of electricity close by. If there happens to be no power outlet next to your fireplace, you can always install one inside your firebox.

If you are considering investing in a corner electric fireplace insert, you're probably wondering how long it lasts? Well, electric fireplaces can last anywhere between 10 to 20 years, depending on how frequently they are used. For this reason, manufacturers offer warranties that range from one up to 10 years, depending on the model.

Some tips to ensure the longevity of your electric fireplace insert is to clean it regularly. While it doesn't acquire the intense type of training that a chimney fireplace would, you can still use a soft cloth to remove dust and other types of debris that may create fire hazards.
