Modern fireplaces: hearths and portals
The acquisition of a conventional wood-burning fireplace is associated with a number of installation difficulties and strict operating rules. In the interior of a city apartment, this seems completely impossible due to the need to install a chimney.
However, today, with the advent of electric models of fireplaces, all difficult moments disappear by themselves.
The electric fireplace works on the principle of simulating a real flame. Various technologies can be used here:
- Projection of bright illumination onto a glass screen
- Flowing fabric strips
- Image of fire on LCD monitor
- Use of illuminated steam
The popular Opti-Myst technology uses a built-in ultrasonic steam generator to produce cool steam. Illuminated by halogen lamps and LEDs, it creates a reliable imitation of a “live” flame. This method is in particular demand due to the fact that the fire in the hearth is very realistic and does not differ from the real one.
In Revillusion’s state of the art technology, a special “Semi-Transparent MiragePanelTM” mirror screen replaces a traditional mirror to magnify the fire effect many times over with visual depth and LED lighting. It also uses a new technology to simulate the shape of the flame, which allows you to create the most realistic fire effect that looks great in a home interior.

Electric fireplaces are easy to use, easy to install (you just need to plug it into a socket), safe, economical (no need to constantly spend money on fuel – just pour water into the tank). And also there are a large number of installation methods (which will allow you to purchase them even for a small apartment) and many design options for every taste. You can purchase a model with heating and crackling sound effects to create the full feeling of a real fireplace.
In the photo: interior design in apartments with a fireplace
In a city apartment, as well as for a private house, the choice of an electric hearth will be the most practical and optimal option.
Electric fireplaces differ in the installation method and the material from which the portal is made.
Types of electric hearths according to the method of installation
The variety of models allows you to take into account any preferences and conditions for placing an electric hearth.
These models of fireplaces have a classic installation option, are located near the wall and are framed by a portal. They have a traditional design and can be made of wood, stone, brick or ceramic. A variety of styles (classic, hi-tech, Provence and others) will allow you to choose a portal that will look harmonious in any interior (even in a small apartment or with a non-standard layout). Such a fireplace will look most advantageous in a spacious living room.
The wall-mounted fireplace does not require complex installation – it is installed near the wall and connected to an outlet. Ease of installation and further operation also makes this type of fireplace popular.

Such fireplaces are located in the corner of the room and do not require complex installation – just fix it against the wall for stability. They are also presented in various styles, can be made of stone, wood or ceramics, decorated with decorative elements.
Corner portals will look equally good in the interior of any apartment: both in a large living room and in a small bedroom. Occupying a corner, the fireplace saves space. The mantelpiece can be decorated with various figurines, photographs, candles, vases and other decor, complementing the composition. Smoldering logs will create a mood of peace, and the heating function will allow you to warm up near the fireplace in winter.

This type of fireplace is a technological panel, inside which there is an imitation of fire behind durable glass. The panel is hung on the wall on special fasteners. This type also does not cause problems during installation and operation.
Wall-mounted fireplaces come in a variety of sizes and can be installed at different heights to complement your interior with a burning hearth.
In the photo: wall-mounted electric fireplace in the interior
This electric fireplace differs from previous models in that it can be built into both the portal and the wall.
Mounting the hearth into the wall is more difficult, as it will require the preparation of a niche and installation. It is best to entrust this process to professionals, however, you can act on your own.
Built-in model suitable for any room and will save the usable space of the room. An electric fireplace will look good both in a classically furnished apartment and in a minimalist or high-tech interior, thanks to the restrained design of the portal. Often, a flat-screen TV is placed above such fireplaces, which allows you to spend really pleasant evenings watching your favorite movie in front of a flickering flame.
In the photo: built-in electric fireplaces in the interior
For lovers of minimalism or modern high-tech style, the best option would be electric fireplaces built into the wall niche.
In the photo: built-in fireplaces in a country house
This version of the fireplace also has a built-in type of installation, but it can be integrated into various objects (tables, cabinets, floors, etc.).
The open design of these fireplaces allows you to enjoy the view of the dancing flames. The peculiarity of such models is that from them you can build a line of any length, from several constituent elements.
In the photo: electric cassette fireplaces in the interior
This type of fireplace is characterized by mobility and the ability to move it to any point in the room if desired. It can be placed near the bed or among the furniture and create a blazing hearth in the middle of the room. Also, using this model, you can zone the room.
The fireplace is usually in the form of an open bowl, which is made in the form of a forged grate in which the coals are located. In some models of electric fireplaces, it is possible to lay out the woodpile at will, and the LEDs built into the firewood create a full-fledged effect of flickering coals and burning logs.

A free-standing or built-in hearth will add zest to the interior and create a truly interesting room design.

Portal design and style
In addition to the variety of installation types, an electric fireplace can also be individually tailored to specific preferences. To do this, you should consider the location in the apartment, the type of hearth and the style of the portal.
According to the material of the portal, fireplaces can be made of wood, plastic, stone or brick.
For classic interiors, a traditional wooden fireplace in light or dark colors is suitable. It can be decorated with additional decor or stucco.

A more lush version of the decor is suitable for the Provence style. A portal stylized as a walnut tree, upholstered furniture around and flowers in pots will create an elegant composition.

If you want to give a unique interior, you can choose an electric fireplace with a corner portal, decorated in marble or ivory with antique decor or antique styling. On the mantelpiece, you can arrange compositions from the appropriate decorations. Such an elegant element of the interior will become central in the room.

Choosing a chalet style for the interior of an apartment, you can install a corner or wall fireplace framed in stone. The naturalness of the materials and the dancing fire will create a feeling of closeness to nature.

Fireplace in the interior of the apartment
An electric fireplace for a city apartment can be not only a beautiful element of decor, but also a completely functional purchase. Many models of electric hearths are able to quickly heat a room up to 20 m2. For this purpose, the heating function is implemented in the fireplaces. Water-powered models can humidify the air in the room, and this can also be attributed to the practical functionality of electric hearths. The fireplace is suitable for rooms of any purpose – a hall, a living room, an office, a dining room, a nursery or even a balcony. The choice of model will depend not only on the design of the room, but also on their dimensions.

Fireplace for small apartments and small rooms
For small-sized rooms, it is better to pay attention to compact models of electric fireplaces. These can be small electric stoves, made in the old English style. They are stylized as cast iron models with a door. An interesting solution would be freestanding foci. For example, the Silverton hearth, which does not require additional framing, will help create a unique corner with a brightly blazing fireplace even in the smallest room. Hearths Volterra and Cellini, thanks to their unusual design, will become the center of attraction for all guests and residents of the apartment. Their compact dimensions allow them to be installed in any room.

Do not forget about the corner models of fireplaces. Their installation allows you to significantly save space in the room, while visually the fireplace does not seem small. On the mantelpiece, you can place interior items, books, photographs, that is, use the fireplace as an additional functional space.
Fireplaces for large apartments and large rooms
The choice of fireplaces for spacious rooms is much wider. You can choose a model not only based on its overall dimensions. Wide hearths, cassette models, classic fireplaces, wall-mounted or built-in options – it all depends on personal preferences and the design of the room.
In the photo: cassette hearth, wide hearth, wall-mounted hearth in large apartments
When choosing a fireplace for large rooms, it is worth considering that compact models can get lost in space and become invisible, therefore, if you still want to purchase a small model, it is better to style a separate area in the living space for it, possibly different in design from everything else. premises. In this case, you can refer to the Art Nouveau style.
Fireplace in a country house
A fireplace in a country house can be not only wood-burning, but also, which is more practical and no less stylish, electric. Most often, in country houses, space allows you to choose any model of fireplaces in size. You can purchase a ready-made fireplace set with a portal and a hearth, pick them up separately, or you can choose only a hearth and order or make a unique frame yourself.
In the photo: Cassette hearth, fireplace set and wall-mounted hearth in a country house
Some models of electric hearths are suitable for installation in an existing wood-burning fireplace. This is very convenient if you do not want to heat the fireplace, especially in the hot season. For this, a Silverton or Revillusion hearth is suitable. They look like real wood-fired grates with smoldering logs.
In the photo: Revillusion hearth, Silverton hearths in country houses
If the room is made in a modern design, you can install a wall-mounted hearth or a built-in fireplace model. A cassette hearth built into a table in the center of a room or into a wall niche will look unusual. A single line of open fire will look extremely stylish in a spacious room.
In the photo: Cassette hearth in the center of the room, wall-mounted and built-in hearths in country houses
For a classic house or a chalet-style room, models in wooden or stone portals are suitable. For rooms in antique style, you can choose fireplaces with portals decorated with antique columns and carved bas-reliefs.
Modern fireplaces: hearths and portals
Modern fireplaces can be installed in any room.
Most often, the kitchen area in city apartments is a fairly limited space. Therefore, when choosing a fireplace, you should pay attention to more compact models or hearths that do not take up much usable space. For a kitchen in a modern style, a wall-mounted hearth is suitable; it is mounted on the wall using special brackets. The frame is made of durable plastic, and the fire in the hearth looks like a real one. If the kitchen is in a classic style, a classic corner fireplace will do. It will not take up much space and will look like a real wood-burning fireplace.
In the photo: corner fireplace, wall-mounted fireplaces in the kitchen
The living room is usually the largest room in the apartment. If you want to make the main focus on the fireplace, then it is better to purchase a large fireplace or place it in the center of the room. You can use a fireplace for zoning, for example, visually separate the space of the living room and kitchen, as often this is one space, especially in studio apartments. To do this, you can build a cassette hearth into the plasterboard wall, so the flame will be visible both in the kitchen and in the living room. For placement in the center of the room, a cassette hearth will also be the best option. For installation against the wall, you can choose any fireplace, depending on the style of the living room.
In the photo: a large fireplace in the center of the room
The bedroom is a place to relax, so the fireplace will be a great addition to the interior. If the bedroom is spacious, you can organize a separate fireplace area with a fireplace and a couch or chairs opposite the hearth. For a small room, a wall-mounted or built-in fireplace is suitable. It is better to place the hearth opposite the head of the bed so that you can admire the flame while lying in bed. For lovers of photography and antiques in an apartment, it is better to choose a fireplace with a portal.
In the photo: electric hearths in the bedroom
The living area of the attic can also be interestingly decorated with an electric fireplace. If the attic is made using an abundance of wood and natural textures, install a chalet-style fireplace. It can be a hearth in a wooden or stone portal. For a modern attic, an interesting solution would be a cassette hearth, it will divide the space into zones, if necessary, or become a bright accent of the interior. You can even not use the portal, but come up with an unusual frame yourself.

Since the balconies stopped storing unnecessary things, it has become part of the living space in many city apartments. A cozy place to relax is often organized on the balcony, and a fireplace will come in handy there. Since the space of the balcony or loggia is not very large, it is better to purchase a small hearth. A compact stove or a free-standing hearth will fit perfectly on the balcony. If the area allows, you can install a wall-mounted fireplace. An interesting solution would be a cassette hearth on the windowsill.

It seems that the nursery and the fireplace are incompatible for safety reasons. But this does not apply to electric fireplaces. They are completely harmless to children and animals, so you can safely install an electric fireplace in the children’s room. It follows from the design, as well as from those considerations that the fireplace should not be the main focus. Therefore, you can simply arrange a small cozy recreation area with a compact hearth-stove. A good solution would be a wall model or a built-in fireplace.
In the photo: an electric fireplace in children’s areas
The entrance hall is the first thing we see when entering the apartment. Therefore, a brightly burning hearth in the hallway area is a relevant and unhackneyed design solution. Choose small pockets. It can be a wall-mounted fireplace, which is suitable for a modern-style room, or a built-in hearth next to a mirror. The wall version of the fireplace can be placed in a spacious room. An interesting move would be to install the hearth in the table opposite the entrance to the apartment.
In the photo: electric fireplaces in the hallway
What could be better than soaking in the bath and watching the flames play in the hearth. An electric fireplace can help with this. Of course, it is unlikely that a fireplace can be installed in a small bathroom. But if the size of the room allows, then the fantasies for installing a fireplace are almost limitless. The most popular solution would be to install a cassette hearth with an open flame. It can be placed in a wall niche or in a podium that can be built above the floor. A stylized hearth made of a grate with firewood is an extraordinary solution that will not go unnoticed by guests. Wall and wall fireplaces are also relevant for installation in spacious bathrooms.

Portal design and style
There are a lot of design options and style solutions for portals. The most relevant today are several types:
The style of the portal depends on several factors: what material it is made of, the presence or absence of decor, decor style, color schemes. The classical style is characterized by an abundance of decor on the frontal surface, most often there are columns on the sides, sometimes an animalistic bas-relief is used. Hi-tech and minimalism are distinguished by a complete lack of decor, the lines of the portal are straight, plastic or wood is used in the manufacture. The chalet-style portal is made of stone and wood. Oriental-style models use stylized ornaments and color schemes. Modern is distinguished by its functionality and conciseness – this includes multimedia portals made of plastic and glass.
In the photo: a classic, high-tech and chalet-style fireplace
Fireplaces in a stone portal can be attributed to both the classical style and the chalet style. It all depends on the stone and its texture. The combination of stone and wood in one model is a chalet style that is suitable for country houses in country style. Stone fireplaces may differ in color – in this case, it is necessary to choose the color of the portal, taking into account the use of primary colors in the interior.
In the photo: electric fireplaces in stone design
The stone can be natural or artificial. The cost of a natural stone portal will be much higher and its installation is much more difficult. However, it is worth considering that the artificial stone used in the manufacture of modern portals is visually no different from natural, therefore, even with a small budget, you can purchase a stylish fireplace in a stone portal that will look like a real fireplace.
In the photo: an electric fireplace in a natural stone portal and fireplaces in marble cladding
The stone portal can be both wall and corner. For small rooms, a corner fireplace will be an excellent solution, since it does not take up much usable space, but looks no less than a conventional wall model. Not only the portal can be lined with stone, but the entire wall next to which it is installed.
In the photo: corner stone electric fireplaces
In the stone portal, depending on the model, you can install a classic hearth with a back wall, or a cassette-type hearth. In the latter version, the hearth zone in the portal is lined with a coating stylized as a real brick, which makes the resemblance to a real wood-burning fireplace maximum. The hearth can be chosen with glazing or with a flame in the open. Both options look spectacular and stylish. You can also choose a hearth with a heating function.
In the photo: Cassette hearth in a stone portal, Cavendish hearth in a stone portal, Cassette hearth with glazing in a stone fireplace cladding
A wide range of stone portals allows you to choose the right model for any room. Narrow, wide, high and low – for the dining room, attic, bedroom, hallway. The niches for the hearth also differ in size, so it is necessary to select the hearth to the portal not only in style, but also in size. For a fireplace in a stone portal, fireplace accessories will not be out of place, which will perfectly complement the fireplace ensemble. A protective screen completes the stylization of the recreation area with a fireplace.
Fireplaces lined with wood or wooden fireplaces
Wooden fireplaces are a wooden portal with a hearth. We can attribute them to the classical style. But there are also modern design solutions in the spirit of hi-tech and minimalism, when wood paneling is used not only for the portal, but for the entire area around the hearth. In this case, wooden panels are often used to sheath the wall in which the hearth is built. The use of natural materials and textures allows us to establish unity with nature in an ordinary city apartment. When using wooden sheathing, the presence of decor is not welcome. Maximum simplicity and conciseness in design – this is what a person who uses this technique in the interior strives for.
In the photo: wood design solutions near electric fireplaces
Wall cladding is also possible when installing a stone portal. Stone and wood are perfectly combined with each other and will not overload the interior. When installing partitions with a fireplace, plasterboard wall sheathing with wood is often used. The partition is faced with panels on both sides, and the hearth is also visible from two zones at the same time.
In the photo: stone and wood as a design solution for a living room with a fireplace
A wooden fireplace in a classic style is suitable not only for a country house, as it was before the advent of electric fireplaces, but also for a city apartment. A wooden portal can be in a minimalist or country style. Portal colors may also vary. On classic portals, the patination technique is often used to artificially age the fireplace. The use of an ornament on the frontal surface of the portal makes the fireplace look like old castle fireplaces. Often, a stone countertop is installed on a wooden portal, which makes the fireplace authentic.
The variety of styles, colors and installation options will allow you to place a fireplace in any room and interior. The electric fireplace guarantees practicality, safety and ease of use. A realistic flame and heating will create a cozy atmosphere and provide a comfortable stay and many pleasant evenings.
portals and electric fireplaces made of wood
The wording in the title of this article is fundamentally wrong from a technical point of view. Such fireplaces cannot exist in principle, if we are not talking about their non-working (false) versions, which play an exclusively decorative function and are used for interior design.
In all other cases, people, speaking of a similar product, mean wooden electric fireplaces, the portals of which are made of wood. Such facing of the fireplace today is quite common. Moreover, it can be made of natural wood, such as:
- color Oak;
- color Walnut.
Choosing wood finishes
Having decided to purchase electric fireplaces made of wood, first of all, you should choose the fireplace itself, since different designs are designed for different decor fixtures and have their own specific installation features.
Depending on its dimensions and weight, the issue of arranging the site for installation is resolved (for a heavy product, it will be necessary to lay it out, for example, from foam concrete). You should remember the proportion of the purchased heater and the room in which it is planned to install it, as well as the minimum free space in front of the fireplace. For all buyers of wooden models, a favorable discount is provided for the purchase of spare parts for strollers of any type.
Portals can be made by yourself, or you can purchase a ready-made stylish kit that you like. Moreover, in the latter case, you should first determine the amount of work to be done to fit the kit to the existing fireplace, especially if you have purchased elite portals. Design developments can be of great help in this.
Before starting the installation of fireplaces with solid wood portals, each element, the last one, must be carefully adjusted “in place”. Otherwise, you can damage the element so much that it will be impossible to restore it.
All elements of the portal should be pretreated with antiseptics, better for deep penetration, and the work should be done several times, as well as waterproof and fire-resistant impregnations. Sketches are made with sizing, and the necessary components are selected, with a frame made of wood. At this stage, you should decide what you want to receive at the end of the work.
A portal with a wood finish will greatly benefit visually if you carry out its high-quality chemical “aging”. If you wish, you can use artificial technologies that allow you to make a cheap tree “wood of valuable species.” Both the first and second processing are performed before the installation of the portal elements is started. You can visually get beautiful portals at the exit, for the manufacture of which “ivory” is used. Such products can often be seen in the design projects of bars and catering establishments.
In cases where it is expected that the location of the fireplace will be quite humid, it is advisable to use MDF instead of natural wood. Modern decorative panels are quite difficult to distinguish from a natural array.
It is desirable that the portal be made of wood representing a whole piece. It is better to refuse glued options immediately, because. they won’t last long.
Do not forget that overheating of the wooden portal must be excluded in principle, otherwise it will simply crack. To do this, the elements of the portal, including, should be treated with a special impregnation that changes the structure of wood, as a result of which it becomes resistant to prolonged exposure to high temperatures.
