Homeowners are always looking for ways to bring an air of sophistication and luxury to their homes, and the latest designer electric fireplace styles and trends are a great way to do just that. With the advancements in technology, these fireplaces come in a range of styles and designs.  In this article, we will uncover our favourite elegant and sophisticated fireplace options.

Sleek and Stylish Electric Fireplaces

If you’re looking for a contemporary fireplace to complement modern décor, an electric fireplace is the ultimate choice. As electric-powered fireplaces don’t emit smoke and don’t require a flue, they can be integrated into your home in a wider variety of ways than gas fireplaces. This gives you more options when it comes to design and enables you to incorporate a modern fireplace into your home in a variety of new ways. 

With an inset electric fireplace, for example, you can add designer fireplaces to an existing feature wall and create a seamless, sleek finish. The in-built effect allows your new contemporary fireplace to act as a focal point, without it taking up any extra space. This means you can add a modern electric fireplace to virtually any space and enhance your surroundings with added ambience and elevated design. 

Media Walls with Electric Fireplaces

Fireplace walls are increasingly popular, particularly when they’re coupled with media or entertainment centres. Sometimes referred to as lifestyle fireplaces, these features often form the centrepiece of the room and draw the eye in terms of décor. 

A wall-mounted electric fireplace can look exquisite set beneath a widescreen television, for example, and will add a sense of warmth to a modern and tech-heavy media wall. Alternatively, you may opt for an offset panoramic electric fireplace that offers two vantage points. 

With a glass encasement, an electric fireplace can be integrated to the front and side of a media wall, for example. This allows you to enjoy your new fireplace from more than one viewpoint and complements a bespoke media wall design. 

Traditional Features with Modern Fireplaces

If your home is filled with period features, there’s a good chance you’ll want to retain the architectural elements that give the property its character. Of course, this needn’t prevent you selecting any type of interior design you choose and combining traditional features with a modern fireplace can be the perfect solution. 

Perhaps you have a Victorian cast-iron fireplace or a traditional hearth with fireplace surround? Or maybe a large Georgian fireplace is already a feature in your living room? Whatever period features you’re working with, you’ll find electric fireplaces to complement your style. 

A modern fireplace can easily be inset into the firebox opening of a traditional fireplace and, depending on the look you’re going for, you can recreate the appearance of a traditional fire with an electric fireplace or combine modern and classic styles with a contemporary fireplace. 

If you do have a traditional fireplace in your home, switching to an electric fireplace can be a great way to minimise the maintenance and upkeep that’s often associated with classic fireplaces, such as chimney sweeping and smoke. 

Three-Sided Electric Fireplaces

If you want to enhance a space with a feature fireplace, then a three-sided electric fireplace is certainly hard to beat. The perfect addition to any interior design, a three-sided electric fireplace can be seen and enjoyed from a wide variety of angles and transforms a standard part of your home into a statement feature. 

A three-sided fireplace can be a great addition to a feature wall. If a chimney breast has been closed off and replastered, for example, adding a three-sided fireplace that runs the full width of the wall will add a focal point and create a feature wall that never fails to attract attention. 

Alternatively, you can create a feature fireplace in any space by adding a unique surround to a three-sided fireplace. In an open-plan living area, for example, a marble surround and three-sided fireplace can segment the space and adds a statement feature that underpins the flow and feel of the room. 

Bioethanol Fireplace as an Alternative

If you love the look of an open fireplace but you want to avoid the mess and smoke that’s associated with traditional wood-burning fires, then a bioethanol fireplace as an alternative could be just what you’re looking for. As more people explore contemporary ideas for open fireplace styles, bioethanol fireplaces are becoming a top trend in 2023. 

Bespoke Fireplace Designs offer Planika Bioethanol Fireplaces, a well-known brand in the bioethanol fireplace industry, offering a range of innovative and stylish fireplace solutions. Their bioethanol fireplaces are known for their advanced technology, high-quality craftsmanship, and modern designs. 

Planika fireplaces often feature convenient features like remote control operation, automatic fueling systems, and various safety mechanisms. These fireplaces provide the ambience of a real fire without the need for a chimney or gas connection, making them a popular choice for both residential and commercial spaces.

Why Choose a Designer Electric Fireplace?

Designer fireplaces are undoubtedly a fantastic addition to any home, but choosing the right type of fireplace and the right fuel source is critical to success. While gas fires and wood-burning fires do have their benefits, electric fireplaces are a popular choice due to their ease of use and minimum maintenance requirements. 

Furthermore, electric fireplaces can be installed in locations where it may not be possible to use a gas or wood-burning fire (without extensive adjustments, such as installing a flue). 

As technology has evolved, the appearance and authenticity of electric fires has only enhanced. Now, you can choose a designer electric fireplace with HD screens that project a hologram of real burning flames into the fireplace, for example. With advanced lighting, audio and heat options, today’s designer electric fireplaces offer unparalleled innovation and authenticity.
