We are not able to have a real fireplace in our house. The MagikFlame electric fireplace is an excellent alternative. It is thick enough to give the feel of a traditional fireplace mantel but can be moved around without trouble. The display creates a multidimensional fire experience that is customizable as well as mesmerizing. The heater provides as much warmth as a traditional fireplace without the dangers or maintenance. We are extremely satisfied with our MagikFlame fireplace!
