Furnish with a Mantel

Sometimes the fireplace can be considered as a furnishing. This is especially true if the fireplace has a mantel. A mantel connects the fireplace with the rest of the room. It can be a shelf to display items or an area to be decorated.

The Deland Grand electric fireplace by Real Flame has a classic wood mantel in either white or gray perfect for adding a hint of luxury to your living room. The appearance of glowing logs and dancing flames requires no chimney or venting but can heat up to 1,000 square feet. Set the infrared heater thermostat anywhere from 72 to 99 degrees. Or turn the heat off completely and just enjoy the flames.

The large 40 inch firebox uses LED lighting to produce vivid flame effects with adjustable brightness settings. Just plug it in and you’re set to enjoy a fireplace anytime.
