There are few things that make a room feel as inviting as the flickering flames of a fireplace. But many homes, offices, condos and RVs don't have a fireplace built in, or even have an option for installing a chimney. That's one reason why electric fireplace entertainment centers are so popular. People are able to contribute to the ambiance of the room with a single, attractive, space-saving piece of furniture that serves triple duty. It heats the area, accommodates your television in style, and also serves as an entertainment center. With a fireplace television stand, there are no chimneys, venting or gas lines required. There are no messy ashes clean up, and no stacks of wood to chop or stack. Turning on your electric fireplace TV stand can be as easy as pushing a button. And, if you're using a universal remote control, it's possible to turn on the fireplace and television at the same time.
Considerations for Buying a Fireplace Television Stand
Your fireplace television stand could come out of the box ready to plug in, but if it doesn't, it will need only simple assembly, usually requiring just a few tools. Depending on the style of stand you choose, your entertainment center with fireplace can keep system components, wires and cords, and other media devices tucked neatly away and out of view. If you want your new 4K TV placed at just the right height for optimal viewing, you can use a TV mount in addition to your fireplace entertainment center. This approach allows extra room for items like a sound bar or speakers to provide the audio impact you want.
The Best Fireplace TV Stand for Your Needs
Another reason you may prefer a fireplace TV stand is that the wide variety of types, styles, sizes and finishes virtually ensures that you can find one to perfectly match your architectural style, your décor, or your vision for the perfect media room. At the same time, the space-saving features can give you the freedom to add finishing touches, like home theater seating, that will give a relaxed and perfect viewing experience for movies or sporting events. And finally, since most TV stands with fireplaces can be used with or without heat, you can have the cozy atmosphere you want year-round, even during the dog days of August.
