Despite what you may think; bigger is not always better.
When it comes to home decor, space can be an issue and having a massive electric fireplace could end up dominating the room, leaving little space for other pieces of furniture.
For those with a grand brick chimney, it’s often easy to find a fireplace to fill the space.
But, for those without a spacious chimney cavity, finding a fire that fits can be more of a challenge.
So, with this week’s blog post, we have decided to help you out! There are plenty of slimline electric fires out there that can fit into even the narrowest of wall cavities. We got to work finding some of the best options for you…
What is the thinnest electric fireplace?
At Direct Fireplaces, our range includes some of the thinnest electric fireplaces available. You can find Dimplex electric fires with inset depths as thin as just 55mm, while some of our thinnest Celsi electric fires are just 70mm in depth – perfect for getting into tight spaces.
Whether you want an inset electric fire or a wall mounted electric fire, we’ve got some great options for you.
Find out more about them below…

Delivering consistently classy and often contemporary fires, Elgin and Hall manage to cover the bases with their range of inset electric fires and hole in the wall models.
The Elgin & Hall Pryzm 16-inch Inset Electric Fire with Chollerton Fascia (below) is a prime example of this, with a classy and striking looking fascia, and an inst depth of 140mm (75mm with spacer).
While not THE slimmest in terms of depth, the Pryzm Volta 750 (below) offers a shorter width option meaning this fire won’t require too much wall space.
AGA Rayburn Stratus Slimline Electric Fires
Highly reputable stove manufacturers AGA have released an entire range of electric fires and fireplace suites, under their Stratus brand name.
Within the range are the Rayburn Stratus™ Extra Slim fires – beautifully designed built-in fire is available in three sizes, offering the ultimate choice in slimline fires with a reduced depth. This means the freedom to install in any room in your home because – as with the all Rayburn fires – no is flue required.
This beautifully designed fire is available in three width sizes 75cm, 100cm and 125cm.
Should you need to build a false wall for this fire, it will not take up too much space in the room either thanks to it’s minimal depth. The Stratus XS fire has a 1.9kW heat output which is a great source of heat to take the chill out of the room and comes complete with it’s own remote control to adjust the heat and light settings.
Celsi Slimline Electric Fires
Celsi is another of the best manufacturers of electric fires. On the forefront of developing the most realistic electric flame effects, they are the pride of many living rooms.
You can also find some great slimline electric fire models from Celsi. One of our most popular is the Celsi Essence Ultiflame VR Electric Fire. Available in a choice of finishes including silver, black and brass, it has an inset depth of just 70mm.
The highly detailed log fuel bed is enhanced by 3D wide angle flames, giving a wonderful display that is perfect for contemporary homes.
Alternatively, the Celsi Designer Ultiflame VR Electric Fire is another brilliant option if you need a slim electric fire. Again, measuring just 70mm inset depth, this fire boasts the same effects as the Celsi Essence, but with a two-toned fascia for a bolder finish.
Finally, we want to highlight the stunning Celsi Electriflame Daisy XD Electric Fire. With a slimline inset depth of 75mm, this fire boats a beautiful design that is perfect for almost any fireplace. Keep it modern, like the picture below, with a simple limestone fire surround. Or, create a more traditional feel with a wood surround.
