TV Stand Fireplaces

If you want a design that offers a dual function, look for a TV Stand fireplace. These models are made to hold your television and often include extra storage for media components. These fireplaces are great in more casual spaces, like a rec room.

Be sure to check the maximum weight and size capacity of the unit, to make sure it can hold your television.

Remote Control

A remote control allows you to turn the unit on and off from a distance.


A timer conveniently lets you set the fireplace to auto shut-off, in case you forget.

Flame effects

Fireplaces generally come with 5 to 10 different flame effects, mimicking a flame’s colour and the way it moves. Choose your favourites.

Bluetooth capabilities

Look for Bluetooth-enabled models if you want to be able to turn on the fireplace with your smartphone before you even enter the room.
