Corner electric fireplaces are a great solution for smaller spaces. In small apartments, every square inch counts. However, no matter how big or small the space, the corners of rooms can sometimes go unused. Corner models easily install into any open corner. With so many different sizes and styles, it is easy to find one that matches the current decor. These space-saving designs allow for the maximizing of floor space. However, if there happens to not be a corner available, there are also wall mount and petit foyer fireplaces that take up very little wall and floor space. Wall mount electric fireplaces are an excellent choice for small rooms, apartments or rooms where floor space isn`t available. In rental properties, wall mount fireplaces can be simply attached to the wall and plugged in. Inset models are also available for permanent installation and can be hardwired directly to the home`s electricity. Wall mounted electric fireplaces can be installed in bedrooms at the level to allow it to be viewed from one`s bed.

With the higher popularity generally comes thermostatic controls, temperature controlled blowers and multitudinous accessories to decorate the gas log fireplace. Vented gas log fireplaces do require professional installation to check gas pressure, thermocouple safety and check ventilation. Vented gas logs provide a better flame pattern than any other type of fireplace coupled with the convenience of on-off controls to vary flame height.
