Can I install an electric fireplace in a wall?

There are a few ways to install an electric fireplace, depending on whether you plan to wall mount, built-in, or flush mount it. Some models can hang on the wall with special mounting brackets, much like a picture or mirror. Although sometimes a challenge, it’s always a good idea to hide the electric cord as it makes for a much cleaner finished appearance.

Another installation possibility is to bump it out from the wall by framing space and ‘building-in’ the fireplace to the existing wall. This often affords a traditional look, perhaps a 36” wide x 24” high fireplace (or similar proportions), finished with a mantel above it.

A third trendy way is to frame space within a wall. That is flush mount or recess the fireplace between the studs in the wall. Some electric models are designed for a 2 x 6 frame wall and are only 5 ½” deep. This installation lets you have your finishing material right to the glass for a true ‘clean face’ design.

Depending on the finished look you’re after and the type and size of electric fireplace you want, there will be an electric option to satisfy you!
