The Different Types of White Electric Fireplaces

We have divided the list of white electric fireplaces into 3 different categories. These three types of fireplaces represent the vast majority of white fireplaces available:

  1. White Electric Fireplace TV Stands / Entertainment Centers
  2. White Electric Fireplace Mantels
  3. White Electric Fireplace Heaters

White Electric Fireplace TV Stands / Entertainment Centers

Electric fireplace TV stands have become one of the most popular styles, probably even more popular than the mantel and heater styles. This is because they are multi-functional; not only do they serve as a warm, focal point for the room, they also act as a storage unit for the television and related peripherals.

Some key considerations whey choosing an electric fireplace entertainment center include:

  1. Dimensions/Size: Get the right size fireplace entertainment center to not only fit your TV, but your peripherals as well. For example, measure the width of your peripherals and compare them to the size of the shelves to make sure they’ll fit.
  2. Doors vs Open Shelves: A style choice, but know the pros and cons. Doors can be transparent or opaque depending on what you would like to store or display. Open shelves are generally cheaper and appropriate for peripherals that need remote control access.
  3. Modern Features: There are quite a bit of new features being integrated into these electric fireplaces, including Amazon Alexa Voice Control and LED backlighting.

White Electric Fireplace Mantels

Mantel electric fireplaces are a more traditional and sophisticated type of fireplace to place in your room. Compared to the TV stand or heater, the mantel fireplace is designed with style first, function second.

Mantel Styles

While selecting the style of mantel fireplace is a personal choice, it is a good starting point. Before you get into features and sizing, knowing what style you want is key.

Do you want a more traditional, classic style? Look for design elements such as crown molding, pillars, and intricate carvings and designs.

Looking for a more modern look? Look for clean lines, simple designs and maybe even backlighting.

Mantel Size

Next, consider the size of the mantel fireplace.

Most mantel electric fireplaces will be between 34″ and 43″ tall,  25″ to 48″ wide and between 11″ to 15″ deep, however, one particular fireplace, the Real Flame Crawford comes in at under 10″ deep and was specifically designed to save space.

Fireplace Features

The majority of mantel fireplaces have adjustable settings and a remote control, with differences in the amount of adjustability.

Higher-end fireplaces will include thermostats that shut off the heat when a target temperature is reached, while other units will allow you to control backlighting, flame effects and even set a timer.

The best mantel electric fireplaces will have flames that not only look real but sound real. For example, the MagikFlame Artemis has digitally sampled sound and internal speakers to mimic the sound of a crackling fire.

White Electric Fireplace Heaters or Stoves

The best electric fireplace heaters have features that either make it more realistic or convenient. Features such as multiple viewing angles, an operable door and adjustable settings will either make the flames more realistic or make it easier for you to operate.

Single vs Multiple Viewing Angles

A key feature of higher-end electric fireplace heaters is the number of viewing angles built into the heater.

These premium models will allow you to view the flame from three sides: front and both sides. This is accomplished by having glass pane on each of the 3 sides. Cheaper units will only have glass pane on the front, and side views are not available.

Faux vs Operable Door

Another key feature of top electric fireplace stoves is an operable door.

Higher-end fireplace stoves allow you to open the glass door, which provides for a more realistic experience similar to a traditional wood stove. You can operate the stove with the door open or closed.

Adjustable Settings and Remote Control

While all electric fireplace heaters allow you to adjust the heat output (BTU), the higher-end models will come more customization options.

For example, features such as adjustable thermostats, brightness settings, and  LED backlighting are available to add to the convenience of operating the fireplace.

In addition, not every electric fireplace heater will include a remote control. For heaters that do not come with a remote, a control panel located on the unit itself will be where you control the fireplace.

Wall-Mount Electric Fireplaces

We did not cover wall-mounted electric fireplaces but we do have a dedicated article on the best wall-mount electric fireplaces. This is because there were not enough white electric fireplaces to include in this review.

 

Southern Enterprises Rollins Convertible Corner Electric Fireplace

Pros
  • Beautiful design elements including Faux Stone, glass doors, brick interior
  • Rich feature set including LED cabinet lighting and remote control
  • It is a convertible fireplace which means it can fit both a corner and against a wall
Cons
  • On the smaller side if you have a TV larger than 50″
  • One of the more expensive options

Check Price

The Southern Enterprises Rollins white electric fireplace is one of our favorite electric fireplaces. It has a transitional design that will look great in any living room. With faux stones, a brick interior firebox, and tall, glass cabinet doors, it’s design stands out amongst other electric fireplaces.

Feature-wise, it includes a remote control that can control its heat, temperature, flame size, log brightness, backlight, as well as other features. LED lights are also included and can be switched on and off by touch. Finally, it is also a convertible fireplace, which means it can fit into a corner of a room, or flat against a wall.

On the downside, it is a smaller fireplace, and can only hold up to at 50″ TV and heat a room up to 400 sq. ft. It is also more expensive than other fireplaces in its category. This is to be expected since the features and design of this white electric fireplace do go beyond its competitors.

MagikFlame Artemis White Mantel Electric Fireplace

Pros
  • Ultra-real flames, effects and sounds
  • iOS and Android app to control
  • Includes background nature sounds
  • High reliability parts and craftsmanship
Cons
  • Very expensive
  • Sensitive to viewing angles

Check Price

The MagikFlame Artemis white electric fireplace mantel is a premium fireplace that features top-of-the-line technology and craftsmanship. It measures at 52″w x 43″h x 15’d.

There are several big differences between this premium fireplace than the others on this list.

First, the underlying technology is different. The Artemis uses HD projection and holographic glass to present the fire and its effects. As a result, the logs actually look like they are burning, whereas other cheaper units show the flames behind the logs.

Second is the sound. A real fire is not just flames; a real fire has sound. With built-in speakers, the Artemis adds crackles and pops of real burning logs to further up the realism.

Third difference is the material and craftsmanship. MagikFlame produces its fireplaces in the USA, whereas most competitors use manufacturers in China. The Artemis is made out of real wood, where competitors use cheaper materials.

Of course, all these premium features do add up to the cost, and the Artemis costs a pretty penny. Still, if you are looking for the top-of-the-line fireplace and do not want to sacrifice on realism, quality, and features, the Artemis is for you.

Real Flame Crawford Electric Fireplace

Cons

Check Price

The Real Flame Crawford white mantel electric fireplace is a simple, modern looking fireplace measuring in at 47.4″ w x 9.5″ d x 41.9″ h.

The unique quality of the Crawford fireplace is that it is very thin. While other electric fireplace mantels are typically 13″ – 16″ deep, the Crawford is only 9.5″ deep.

This means that it’ll take up less space and a smaller footprint, which is great for smaller rooms or narrow areas. However, this also means that you need to anchor the fireplace to a wall to prevent it from tipping it over.

The fireplace is made out of wood and veneered MDF. It includes a remote control and has a programmable thermostat, timer, and brightness settings. It is also available in chestnut oak.

The Crawford is an excellent choice if you are looking for a modern, white fireplace and want to maximize space.
