For many customers who live in a small home, condominium or apartment, purchasing a full fireplace mantel can be an unappealing and impractical decision. These owners do not have to fully give up on the idea of an electric fireplace or mantel within their homes, though. With compact mantel packages and wall mount electric fireplace options, any home can enjoy a fireplace.
The compact designs still function like any other electric fireplace; they simply fit in smaller areas. Like the larger options, the compact designs are available in plenty of design options and come in the same high-quality wood finishes for those either wanting a traditional feel or a sleeker, more modern design for a contemporary look. Even better, some compact designs are available with infrared heaters to heat areas up to 1,000 square feet.
Compact fireplaces are available in a wide variety of styles, but one of the most popular designs is the Petit Foyer collection. To help explain all the options our compact selections have to offer, we’ve lined up our top choices.
The Morgan Petit Foyer
The Morgan Petit Foyer Electric Fireplace could make a great addition to any office space, especially with its unique drawer design. The unit also comes equipped with a child-lock and remote, so it can fit effortlessly in a hallway setting, too, or even as an end table in a spare bedroom. No matter where it’s placed, the unit will consistently produce enough heat to warm areas up to 400 square feet while also providing a one-of-a-kind flame effect display.
For the full mantel experience without the space issues, consider one of the Chandler units. Available in oak and cherry, the Chandler collection quickly become popular customer favorites in the fall and winter months because these units can produce enough heat to warm areas up to 1,000 square feet and small enough to fit into any living space. Each unit can support a television as well, which could help save small home owners from having to purchase another, often bulkier, piece of furniture for their home.
The Dimplex Cube
Perfect for the homeowners who crave a more contemporary look, the Dimplex Cube blends functionality and modern interior decorating effortlessly. Supported by a chrome stand, the 37-pound heating unit can emit enough heat to warm areas up to 400-square feet, and customers have been raving about the product since it first appeared in early 2011.
“I live in a small apartment but love the ambiance created by a fireplace, said verified buyer Kirk from Tennessee. “My cube is the perfect solution because of its small size, realistic flame, and retro design. The heater is just right for keeping my place warm, and it fits in great with my décor.”
Don’t let a small space stop you from purchasing a fireplace unit. With little set-up and certainly no maintenance or heavy installation work, a compact electric fireplace is an ideal decision for close spaces.
