In recent years, one of the most significant fireplace trends has been the popularity of deluxe fireplace suites.
This comes as no surprise. The grandeur and style, as well as immense warmth, is extremely appealing to a wide range living spaces.
What are deluxe fireplace suites?
The majority of gas fires and electric fires that we sell here are a standard size that will fit into an opening of 22” high x 16” wide. That works perfectly for many people, but for some modern homes those dimensions don’t allow you to achieve the look you are striving for. That’s where deluxe fireplace suites come into the picture.
Deluxe fireplace suites have a wider panel, almost like the widescreen TVs of the fireplace world, which can help create a stunning centrepiece for any room. Framing the fire, whether it is gas or electric, in this wider window really embellishes the effect of the flame and is simply stunning to look at. It’s easy to see why our customers love it.
Also, as they are suites they come complete with hearths and surrounds. That means you get the complete package without having to worry about any additional extras, making them not just good looking but practical as well.
