There’s something captivating with having a fireplace at home. That snugly feeling, wrapped in a blanket, sipping on your favorite cocoa drink while staring at the flickering fire, listening while one by one the wood crackles or simply looking at the beauty of that fire glow will surely soothe your mind and take away all your stress. Others opt to relax by watching their favorite shows on television while getting the warm comfort of the fireplace nearby.
Unfortunately, not all are lucky to have a built in fireplace at home or have the capacity to do so. Most people living in apartment complex and residential buildings cannot own one as there is no way they can build a chimney in there. Others, who loves to travel to different places with their yachts and camping cars, can’t also have one as it is an impossible thing to do.
Thankfully, a new furniture piece is introduced to the market and easily becomes a hit with homeowners. A fireplace and TV stand in one is created to give people the impossible thing—having a fireplace along with a TV stand at the heart of their home.
So how does an electric fireplace work? Simple. The design is engineered to work on any home, without having the need for chimneys, gas lines or ventilation. What is needed is an electric plug to plug in the electrical chimney and viola! You will have an instant fireplace at any place in your home or office. A plus point for this furniture goes to the built- in TV stand, where you can place your television set to watch your favorite shows. You will not only get the comfort and satisfaction you need, but you can also save up some space in your room. You can transfer this piece of furniture at any corner of your house or office, depending on your mode or interior decorating taste.
Before impulsively purchasing one, take time also to consider the pros and cons of owning an electric fireplace with TV stand. There are a lot of factors to take note before swiping your credit or debit cards, or rushing to the nearest appliance store to get one.
Decor design is limitless. There is a wide variety of designs to choose from, which undeniably will suit one’s style preference and will blend with the existing interior decoration at home. Those living in small condominiums and apartments can always opt to purchase a smaller one. Installation is very easy. Unlike a traditional fireplace where there is a need of a permanent connection to a gas line, the electric fireplace and TV stand can be plugged to any available electric wall plug at home. One can conveniently roll it out from the living room to the bedroom at night time, or can always transfer it to any corner of their homes depending on their mode of style and comfort. The TV stand can also be decorated with books or other collector’s item, depending on the taste of the owner.
The biggest benefit of having an electric fireplace is that one can conveniently adjust the heat temperature and there will always be that zero effort for building a fire because one can simply turn it on or off. It does not emit any harmful gases and fumes such as carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide.
There is always a downside to things, though. Common negative feedback from those owning one are that it does not produce the same heat as a regular fireplace does, and it is not usable during power outages. Some say the flames look too artificial, thus they cannot feel the same ambiance that the real fireplace provides.
To sum it up all, the electric fireplace and TV stand is designed for low cost and practical convenience. It’s a great alternative for those who has not enough budget and space for a real fireplace.
