If you’ve ever wanted a fireplace but realize you have no room for one as you stare at your TV housed in a large entertainment center, think again. For homeowners who do not have a fireplace or cannot afford one, you can now purchase a fireplace and media center all-in-one.

A good choice is one of the electric fireplace media consoles from Dimplex®. They offer realistic flames along with a thermostat controlled fan-forced heater to keep you warm on chilly nights. As the weather warms you, you can still turn off the heat and enjoy the ambiance of the flame year-around.

Each unit varies in its configuration, but most offer a center fireplace with side and or top storage for your media essentials, whether that be a cable box, DVR, DVD, Blu-Ray player or gaming console.

It is safe, featuring a front glass that stays cool, so the unit is always safe to touch. It is also economical, providing supplemental heat when you need it for only pennies per hour.

It plugs into any standard household outlet and can be operated from an easy remote control unit.

Dimplex offers a variety of models to choose from, many with the option of choosing your own ember bed from logs molded from actual wood or a tumbled glass ember bed if you prefer a more contemporary appearance.

For more information, visit Dimplex or your local fireplace specialty outlet.
