Those of us who work with electric fireplaces think of them as perfect for all 4 seasons. After all, you can operate them without heat, and just enjoy the ambiance anytime. However, we know that fireplaces are a hard sell in the summer, when we’re enjoying warm temperatures and indoor-outdoor living. That’s why I’ve come up with a selection of electric fireplaces that really do invoke a summer vibe, so you can enjoy them for summer soirees, and then keep that feeling going all through the colder months. Here are my picks for summer-lovin’ fireplaces:
Nothing beats the realism of logs molded from real wood, and the OptiMyst flames on this unit will have you reaching for the marshmallows.
Do your summer memories include skimming stones across a lake or pond? The natural pebbles and driftwood in this fireplace will take you back there in an instant.
The crystal ember bed in a black glass frame will remind you of moonlight sparkling on a still lake.
Nothing says ‘cottage’ like a wood stove. This electric version is a fresh update in cream rather than the expected black finish.
As cool as a northern lake, including the rocks around the fire pit, a white glass model will remind you of fires on the beach.
If the Aurora Borealis sparks your summer memories, then this firebox will appeal to you. With icy crystals reflecting colourful – and changing – LED light, you’ll think it’s the night sky in a box.
