Electric Fire Units: This Season's Must-Have Interior Design Feature

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Dec. 6, 2010) - As winter sets in, UK residents will start to turn their attention to heating their homes. There is already a wide selection of options available to homeowners, but few can add as much elegance and style as easily and quickly as an electric fireplace. Standing heaters, gas or electric, provide good heating, but aren't always the best looking home appliances. This makes electric fires the perfect aesthetically pleasing alternative.

Electric fires are available from Kays in a range of affordable designs and styles, allowing homeowners to select a finish that matches their home's interior. Materials used to construct these units include wood, glass, plastic, stone and steel. These home electronics are easy to install and maintain. Homeowners can also put them anywhere, as they need no additional ventilation.

One of the main factors that need to be taken into account when purchasing an electric fireplace is space. The space available in the room where the electric fire is to be installed would determine the proportions and size of the unit. For lounges with ample space a floor standing unit ought to be ideal, but if space is at a premium a wall mounted model may be more appropriate.

These fireplaces are as effective as traditional fireplaces, but without the smoke and lingering odour regular fireplaces emit. This also means that because there are no fossil fuels being burnt, these electric fireplaces are the more eco-friendly option for homeowners.

One of the biggest advantages of these electric fires is their retail price. Ranging from £99 up to £1,000 there is a make and model available for everyone. An electric fireplace from Kays will add an extra dimension and feature to any lounge or living area, creating a focal point for the room's interior. As an energy efficient home appliance, electric fires deliver on all fronts, providing ample heating while enhancing the overall look and feel of a room.
