Electric fireplaces have come a long way since I was a young little whippersnapper. They used to be these giant, bulky things that either provided you warmth or the look of a fireplace, but rarely both. And they definitely weren’t attractive. But now, a quick internet search for a fake fireplace (or ‘faux fireplace’ for all you fancy pants) and hundreds of results come up!

There are several reasons why these fireplaces are so awesome. First, a fake electric fireplace doesn’t need wood or gas hookups. I may live in North Carolina, but believe it or not, not everyone from this state is a lumberjack. Which means we would have to buy wood or find it which can be a hassle. Especially if you’re young or single or not a giant, strong human. Or live in the burbs where they would post about you on Next Door if you went around scavenging wood.

(can’t you just see it now?! The daily Next Door ‘SUSPICIOUS PERSON SIGHTED’ and there’s 5 photos of me from a Ring camera hauling wood down the street?!)

We have one in our bedroom and it makes the room super relaxing and warms it up on chilly nights (yes, we get those in North Carolina!)

I love that you can plug these in anywhere to make any room cozy and warm. These bad boys have a plug in electric insert so if you have an outlet, you can have heat and ‘fire’! Thank you, electricity. There’s so many styles to choose from which means that if your style is modern, you can find one that’s sleek with clean lines and has a black or metallic type finish. If you’re more on the farmhouse side of things, shiplap! Traditional? Then go for something with wood or a nice white electric fireplace option with chunky crown moulding on it.

It’s so relaxing, sometimes I find myself sneaking upstairs to sip coffee and warm up a bit.

While ours is on the traditional side (for now, we actually have plans to make it look more ‘built-in’ and it will really pop when we finally paint this room), there’s SO many styles to choose from. Here’s a few of our favorites, from sleek and modern to traditional to transitional to ‘Chip and Jo approved’ farmhouse styles.
