Electric Fireplaces For Dining Room
A fireplace in the dining room is a luxury touch most often found in historic homes. For homeowners who want the hypnotizing ambiance of a fire while dining, an electric fireplace in the dining room is the perfect solution. Installing most types of fireplaces is expensive and complicated. Traditional fuels like wood and gas contribute to indoor air pollution. Dining room electric fireplaces are affordably priced and support healthy indoor air quality and beautiful ambiance. A freestanding electric dining room fireplace is easy to install. The best electric fireplace for a dining room will have realistic flame effects and heat; for an upscale look, the fireplace design might include a custom mantelpiece or surround.
Why Is An Electric Fireplace Best For Dining Room?
One of the most compelling reasons to choose an electric dining room fireplace is improved indoor air quality, especially in an enclosed space where people are eating. Fireplaces that use combustible fuels like wood, gas and alcohol gel create unpleasant by-products that pollute indoor air, and are expensive to operate. If anyone in your family has allergies or is sensitive to chemicals, an electric dining room fireplace is a healthier choice.
Traditional wood-burning fireplaces may be nostalgic but they’re an expensive, dirty source of heat. Expect a constant indoor smoke smell and soot on the walls. Gas
fireplaces are cleaner-burning, but owners must factor in the price of gas, and you don’t always want the heat. Plus, they can emit deadly carbon monoxide. Modern “ventless” gas fireplaces have even been found to emit unhealthy by-products that pollute the air in your home. At the lowest price point is a faux electric fireplace; they use LED lights to create a focal point, but don’t provide realistic flames or heat.
Wall mounted fireplaces that use alcohol gel fuel may seem appealing at first, because they’re easy to install, but expensive to operate. Despite claims that they’re “clean burning”, like any combustible fuel these fireplaces do emit fumes. Plus, once you buy an alcohol fireplace you’re locked into purchasing fuel refills from that manufacturer. Like other traditional fireplaces, alcohol-gel fireplaces always produce heat. In contrast, electric fireplaces offer the option of flames without heat, so they’re ideal for warm climates or creating ambiance in summertime.
A dining room electric fireplace is an affordable solution that can be installed quickly, with minimal disruption. You’ll enjoy safe, efficient heat with no special venting required. They’re simple to install – just plug it into a standard outlet. You can even convert an existing wood or gas-burning firebox by installing an electric fireplace insert. Create a stylish interior design with a fireplace surround in brick, wood, faux stone, stainless steel, tile, granite, or stucco.

FAQs: Electric Fireplaces In Dining Room
How big of a television can I put on top?
Any Size. There is no limit to the size of the television that you place above the mantel. Keep in mind that TVs are measured diagonally. A 55″ – 60″ inch television looks perfect above your mantel. Of course, you can put something a little bit larger and it will be slightly wider than the mantel, but that’s really not a problem. Smaller is also not a problem. Put whatever size TV above your fireplace that seems like a good fit for your living room, bedroom, dining room, and lifestyle.
Your insert is not wide enough.
