Who doesn't have fantasies of warming up beside a wood-burning fireplace once the temperature drops? Sadly, you can't just go and start laying down bricks (especially if you own an apartment), but you can do the next best thing: purchase one of the best electric fireplaces that will provide both ambiance and more warmth than you probably ever imagined.
One of the best ways to make your home or apartment cozier in the winter is by investing in an electric fireplace, which come in a variety of sizes and at all price points. Some are free standing and can fit into corners and small spaces. Others are portable, which is great if you want to transport it between rooms. There are even wall mounted electric fireplaces that stay up and out of the way — ideal for parents of small children and anyone with a curious pet.
And today's modern electric fireplaces are also extremely convenient (I mean, way more convenient than having to stock up on firewood and start and tend to a real fire — just saying). Many boast adjustable settings so you can pick and choose the amount of heat they emit, and several come with remote control devices that you can operate from the comfort of your bed or couch.
Sure, owning an electric fireplace probably means giving up the yule log drinking game, because now you'll have your very own fire whenever you want it. But those snug winter nights and your much cheaper heating bill will make it all worth it.
