Contemporary Electric Fireplace Options

By Kate Riley October 14, 2019

Hello friends, welcome to another week! It seems October has taken a turn toward winter. Last week, we were enjoying sunny skies in the 70s, now the temperature has dropped and we woke up to a chill in the air. I welcome it. The thing I love most about the colder months is the cozy factor. Enter the sheepskin rugs, chenille blankets, lighted candles, and homemade soup on the stove. :)

Once a week I host various gatherings at my studio: podcast discussions, my friend’s nutrition class, and a bi-monthly “wine wednesday”. To warm up the space for winter evenings, I ordered a freestanding electric fireplace. I did a lot of research and thought about building a DIY mantel and surround for an electric insert, but the price and style was right on this freestanding oak fireplace so I ordered it.

For years many of these freestanding fireplaces have been available in more traditional styles, but good news, here are some contemporary options that will help you add warmth and ambiance to your home!

hollis electric (also red and black)

harper electric (also gray and sandstone)



driftwood & faux stone



aspen chestnut

real flame devin electric



updike electric



shoalhaven electric (also in white)


harper faux stone

cabinet fireplace/heater


crawford slimline


red portable stove / compact freestanding stove


walnut with mantel


mini electric 14” heater



  1. This will be my first winter in my new place. If I’m feeling too chilly, I thought I’d try the infrared ones because I like the concept of not heating the air around me but the objects instead.
