Can You Get Fireplaces With Downlights or Ambient Lighting?

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

The right fireplace will not only create a beautiful focal point within your room, but it will also help set the perfect ambient mood thanks to the gentle glow of the flame. But did you know that you can take the cosy and contemporary aesthetic one step further by choosing electric fireplaces with downlights or other forms of lighting integrated within the fire surround? 

Here, we’ll be looking at some of the benefits of choosing a fireplace with downlights or other lighting and introducing you to our favourite electric fireplaces with integrated downlights and ambient lighting. 

The benefits of having downlights or lighting around your fireplace

By drawing the eye in, adding an extra source of light and casting a stunning glow over your fire, there are many reasons to choose a fireplace which incorporates lights and other downlights.

Set the mood of your room

When you choose a fireplace with downlights or other integrated lights, you can instantly set the mood and tempo of your room. Downlights on your fireplace can also add a contemporary touch to your fireplace unit, even if you choose a more traditional fire. 

Remove the need for additional lighting

You may also enjoy how LED lighting around your fire removes the need for extra lighting in your living space, especially when watching a film or your favourite TV show. 

Which fireplaces come with lights?

Electric fireplaces lend themselves best to the inclusion of downlights and other lighting. You will already be using electricity to power your fire; therefore, you can also use the same electrical outlet to power the LED lights incorporated into your fire. 

The same applies when powering a light bar around your fireplace if you prefer the style of a wall-mounted fire. Both set-ups are a safe and effective option for your home, especially if you have small children and curious pets around. 

How do you install downlights or other lighting around your fireplace?

You can buy fireplace units with downlights and/or ambient lighting included in the fire surround, and we will be introducing you to some of our favourites shortly. At Direct Fireplaces, we stock a fantastic range of electric fireplaces with downlights and ambient lighting, and we guarantee you’ll find the style that suits your home and your budget. 

Alternatively, you could lean into some DIY and work with a professional tradesperson to create your own fireplace with downlights. 

In the most basic form, you would need to create a shelf above your existing electric fireplace with cutouts designed for multiple LED downlights depending on the size of your shelf. Don’t forget to make a cutout for the switch to turn your downlights on and off too. 

Note – it is essential to always consult a qualified electrician when working with sources of electricity. 

Which are the best fireplaces with downlights and/or ambient lighting?

Take a look at some of our Flamerite Fires, available in various styles to appeal to multiple aesthetics. All of the fireplace units that we are about to introduce to you include downlights or creative ambient lighting to really frame your fireplace. 

What’s more, when choosing a Flamerite fire, you can choose between Flamerite’s two control settings, Radia and Nitra.

  • Radia uses a Smartphone App to control your Flamerite Fire, whilst manual control is also available. Radia offers you a dimmable LED effect with flicker control, plus an adaptive 7-day timer.
  • Nitra uses both a SmartPhone App and a Remote, and there are five pre-set scrolling animations, along with all the functions of the Radia flame mentioned above.
