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.

Categories for best electric fireplaces (plus a bonus):

Wall-Mounted Electric Fireplaces

These are the sleekest of the electric fireplaces on the market. Some have a backlit LED feature to outline the frame in light. Fairly easy to mount, they add a contemporary look to any room.
