LOVE my new electric fireplace
I have been looking at electric fireplaces for YEARS but they always looked so cheap and cheesy.
Well, just saw a beautiful corner one at Lowes that looked very similar to high end gas ones. It has an adjustable thermostat, different flame settings (high/low, blue background flames) and a timer.
DH just set up in our bedroom and it exceeded my expectations.
The mantle is a beautiful dark cherry color, and is very solid.
What I like the most about it is you can adjust the heat setting,and even turn off the heat and have it lit for ambience factor.
Anyway, thought this might help others that have been looking at electric.
It actually has LED lights. It said on the description it should help cut electric bills...guessing it's if you kinda use it like a space heater, rather than turn on your heating for the entire house.
