Dimplex Linear Electric Fireplaces

As temperatures cool and pumpkin spice wafts through the air, the time is also right to think about adding an electric fireplace to your home. Whether you want some ambiance in the living room or some extra heat in the bedroom, the hottest fireplace this fall is the linear fireplace.

What Is a Linear Fireplace?

Linear refers to the shape of the fireplace. They are wide, short rectangles that look quite different from traditional fireplaces and often have a contemporary feel.

A linear electric fireplace is usually wall mounted or recessed into the wall, often higher up the wall than most traditional fireplaces. They don’t require any special preparation or hearth and can be installed on any wall material.

Here are some Dimplex linear electric fireplaces you should definitely pay attention to.

Dramatic Dimplex Prism

One of our widest, this electric fireplace with driftwood is never short on drama. You can switch out the ember bed for acrylic crystals instead of the driftwood for an elegant effect. The stunning Prism flame technology features full-spectrum LED lighting in a variety of colors.

An excellent source of supplemental heat for up to 400 square feet, this is just what you need to take the edge off chilly nights. You can also operate it with flames only for year-round enjoyment.

The unit can be fully recessed, partially recessed, or wall mounted. Opt for either hard wiring it or plugging it into a standard socket.

Dimplex Winslow for Snug Spaces

This model may be one of our smallest linear models at 35”, but it delivers serious ambiance and heat for up to 1000 square feet (can be operated with flames only as well). Unique strip lighting, colorful flame options, and color cycling give this fireplace plenty of interest. It comes with three options for the ember bed so you can adjust to your taste and style: pebbles, crystals, and logs.

The Winslow can be installed on the wall or set on a tabletop and has a curved glass front that makes it appear to be closer to the wall like a partially recessed unit. Control heat output by adjusting the built-in thermostat using manual controls or the multi-function remote control.

Why Do Designers Love Linear Fireplaces So Much?

Linear electric fireplaces are favored for many reasons. Of course, they’re sleek and modern but they consistently turn the heads of designers in other ways too.

Their wider stance makes them better for larger rooms or big walls than other units that tend to get lost in the open formats of today’s homes. They are really convenient to install and require little, if any, construction. A linear electric fireplace is literally plug and play.
