Purchasing an electric fireplace with mantel will yield a classic look in any home. Even better, it creates a cozy place to curl up with a good book or to gather with friends and family. That said, there are other things that make an electric fireplace with mantel an excellent choice.
The History of the Mantel
Fireplace mantels (also referred to as chimneypiece), date back to medieval times. These ancient fireplaces with mantels were designed with a hood that extended over a fire grate to capture the smoke. Mantels have evolved over the years, transforming into decorative structures that beautifully accent the fireplace. Many of the ancient mantels were graced with intricate, ornamental designs and extended to the ceiling. Because modern heating methods eventually became the norm, fireplaces in some cases have lost their charm. Thanks to today’s electric fireplaces with mantel, this doesn’t need to be the case, and you have several exceptional options.
Design and Style
Mantels give both a modern and classic look depending on the fireplace you choose. Our Spectrum series provides a modern look, while the Home-Fire series provides a more classic look.

Electric Fireplace with Mantel Functionality
One of the most appealing abilities when it comes to an electric fireplace with mantel is their functionality. They provide the perfect place to show off décor and family photos as well as hiding things like the tv remote. Nothing quite sets the mood like a fireplace with mantel.
Custom or Out of the Box
There are out of the box solutions that may work for your home, however, customizing your mantel will give you the look and feel that you desire. Customizing your electric fireplace with mantel will also give it a more permanent look.
