Electric Fireplaces: An Easy Way to Bring Warmth to Your Home. The fireplace has been the gathering point of the home for many centuries - a source of warm providing a cheery glow to relax in. However, in modern times there are a lot more options for creating that cosy fireplace ambiance - including electric fireplaces. These type of fireplaces are easy, convenient and safe, while still giving off the appearance of a real fire.


In the UK there are plenty of cold and rainy days that are perfect for curling up next to a warm fireplace. At the Fireplace Superstore, we offer an extensive selection of beautiful and elegant electric fireplaces (as well as wood-burning stoves and gas fireplaces). We have been in business for more than 30 years and we pride ourselves on the quality we offer.


History of Electric Fires

The very first electric fireplaces were much different than they are today. They were invented in 1912 but they became widely popular in the 1950s. They were popular because they could be conveniently moved around the home depending on where they were needed. However, the early models were not as safe as today’s designs and there was a risk they could be knocked over - starting a fire.


As the technology developed, electric fireplaces became safer… as well as more stylish. In the 1980s, the technology to created controlled electrical flame effects was created. This allowed designers to create electric fireplaces that looked just like real wood-burning fireplaces. It was Dimplex that patented the first “wood burning” flame effect fireplace in 1995.


This is when electric fireplaces really surged in popularity and many new and eye-catching designs were created. Since the 1990s, every year there have been more exciting, stylish, practical and eco-friendly options to choose from when it comes to electric fireplaces.


Styles of Electric Fires

Electric fires come in a range of exciting styles, so you can choose the one that works best for your home. For example, we have a very modern looking hole in the wall fires, which will look dramatic and be striking with any contemporary interior. We also stock two and three-sided fires where the fire can be viewed from different areas in the room.


Another option is a style of electric fireplace that you can hang on the wall - which is perfect for small rooms where you don’t want the fireplace to take up any of the existing space. Electric stoves are another option, depending on the space and the needs of your household. Come take a look at our showroom so that you can get a better idea of what type of fireplace would work in your home.
