Best Electric Fires for a Media Wall

Are you looking for the perfect media wall fire for your home? We have a wide range of high-quality, built-in electric fires available at Let’s explore the best media wall electric fires available right now and give you some inspiration for creating the look in your living room.

What is a media wall?

A media wall is a feature wall that typically includes an inset or wall-mounted fireplace, a television and storage space.

Media walls are one of the hottest interior design trends around at the moment. Households across the UK are building false chimney breasts into which they can recess TVs and built-in electric fires. The result is an eye-catching, space-saving design feature; a beautiful focal point for any living room; and a great way to incorporate a contemporary heating appliance into your home.

How to create a media wall

Building a media wall is essentially no different than building a stud wall. That means it’s a very simple job for any builder, joiner or competent DIY-er.

You just need to construct a timber frame with recesses of an appropriate size to house and/or support your appliances, clad the structure with MDF or plasterboard and install your appliances. Find out more about which materials you need to build a media wall.

5 Things to Consider When Choosing a Media Wall Electric Fire

You’ve seen some of our recommended fires, but what do you need to think about when finding the best media wall electric fire for your home? There is so much choice out there that it can be overwhelming trying to select the right electric fire.
That said, there are a few things to keep in mind when buying electric fires for media walls.

Once you’ve made a decision on these factors and your budget, the choice really comes down to personal preference. Let’s explore those things to consider in more detail to help narrow your search.


Which type of media wall fire do you want? This will largely depend on the design of your media wall and the look you want to create.

Do you want a built-in electric fire that is fully recessed within a wall or do you want a wall-mounted electric fire? Do you just want the front panel of the fire to be visible or would you prefer a 2-sided or 3-sided electric fire with multiple glass panels? Do you want to build a media wall or would an electric fireplace suite be better for your home?


While a media wall creates a very contemporary look, some fires are in a more traditional style while others are ultra-modern so it’s worth considering which style you prefer.

Do you want a realistic flame effect that looks like a real fire, a wide range of colour options or a combination of those things? Do you favour an LED flame effect or a holographic flame effect?

What sort of fuel bed would you like for your media wall fire? Should it include logs, coal, pebbles or crystals? Do you want to be able to change the colour of the fuel bed?


Choosing the right size of media wall electric fire for your room will mainly depend on the size of the room and the size of the media wall you’re building.

Media wall fires typically start at 36” wide and go up to 72” wide. You might want to match your fire to the width of your TV or you might want a fire that is either narrower or wider than your TV. If you want a 3-sided electric fire that is flush with the edge of the media wall, you will need to choose a fire that is the same width as the wall.

Heater Direction

If your media wall fire is being recessed within the wall it’s essential to choose an appliance with a front-facing heater. Otherwise, the warmth generated will be wasted inside the media wall and might even cause overheating.

Even with wall-mounted media wall fires, it’s worth considering how the heater direction will be impacted by where the fire is being installed.


You’ll find a wide range of features available on media wall electric fires. These include:

  • Remote control
  • Flame effect colour settings
  • Flame speed settings
  • Flame-only option
  • Fuel bed colour settings
  • Multiple heat settings
  • Thermostat
  • Programmable timer

It’s just a case of deciding which features you would like your fire to have and choosing one that fits your needs.

How Wide Should a Media Wall Fire Be?

We mentioned above that the size of a media wall fire is a key consideration when choosing the best option for your home. The most important factor is that the fire is in proportion to the media wall and the rest of the room.

Most people opt for fires that are the same width as or slightly wider than their TV. But we also see some really interesting designs where the fire is narrower than the TV. You can explore all of these options in more detail in our article ‘What Size TV and Electric Fire Do I Need for My Media Wall?’ to get more inspiration for your home.
