As winter approaches, there’s nothing like the warmth and ambiance a fire creates. For many, a wood-burning fireplace isn’t always an option. Luckily for you, we’ve put together a collection of the best electric fireplaces (as well as some bioethanol options) on the market in every size, style and price range so you can enjoy the warm glow and even the crackling sound of a real fire. The fireplaces featured below offer more than just a pretty image. Most have built-in heaters and blowers to circulate heat in a room. Some use state-of-the-art infrared heat, which is a less drying, more efficient heating system. And they come with a remote so you can control the heat, the flame or both from anywhere in the room.
When square footage is limited, the last thing you need is an obstacle course of furniture to weave through. Stick to the basics of what you need to enjoy your space. This doesn’t mean you need to live in an empty apartment; it means you should select pieces that serve double duty. Some ideas for multifunctional furniture include. An ottoman (even better: a storage ottoman). It can convert your sofa into a chaise sectional or work as a coffee table (with a tray on top for stability) or extra seating. A sofa table. This can serve as a makeshift dining table, a desk or an entryway table. Go the extra mile and choose a narrow 30-inch-high bookcase or a sofa table with shelving. Stacking, self-storing furniture. Nesting side tables have a variety of uses. A bench. It can serve as dining room seating, a coffee table or a low media cabinet.
