I have the best secret for you and I can’t wait to share it! I’ve wanted a fireplace in my bedroom since I was a kiddo. None of our houses have had this set up and it’s quite a daunting task to add one. Plus thousands and thousands of dollars! Our current bedroom is a nice size with room to move around. I have had my bed on the mural wall, but started thinking that it would be the perfect backdrop for a simple fireplace. I was SO RIGHT!
You can see above that our bed was facing east and was against the mural wall. I’ve had our bed this direction since we moved in, so I wasn’t sure how everything would fit if we switched directions. Normally adding a fireplace would take a large chunk out of the space, so we did a quick sketch up to see what the bed would look like on the north wall, making room for a fireplace on the mural wall. It fit like a glove!
We also created this 3D rendering just to make sure that we liked the look, and of course we did!
Now onto the magical fireplace…
You’ve probably heard of Napoleon Fireplaces. I’ve known that they do gas, wood and outdoor fireplaces, but I recently learned that they do electric fireplaces as well. When I started looking into them, I knew I wanted something simple, sleek and easy to maintain. I was immediately drawn to the Allure Phantom 60. The best part of this whole thing is that you simply hang the Allure™ Phantom 60 Electric Fireplace, with no gas specialist needed. You can control comfort and mood with the touch of a button and adjust flame height. You can also instantly transition between cool blue, bright orange, or a combination of both.
This wall hanging fireplace protrudes only 5” into your space when hung, and can be installed, fully recessed, for an even more custom look. This really is perfect for a rental, a condo, or anywhere else a traditional fireplace can’t go.
My favorite thing to do at night now is cuddle up in my bed, turn the fireplace on and watch The British Baking Show. HEAVEN! One huge plus about this fireplace is it doesn’t need to output heat unless you want it to. So during these hot months, I have it on the flame option.
I go between the orange flame and the combo (orange and blue) flame, which you can see the two options above.
My favorite thing about this whole process is how easy and how affordable it is to add a fireplace to any room. I can’t be the only one who has wanted a fireplace added in a quick matter! Napoleon is the perfect solution.
