A growing trend amongst savvy designers is incorporating fireplaces into a child’s space, whether it be a bedroom, nursery or a play room. If the room already has an old / unusable fireplace, redecorating it as a bookcase or other focal point is a great idea, but it doesn’t eliminate the dust and odours unless it is properly sealed off.
If you’re a homeowner or designer seeking to add a touch of warmth to an otherwise cool room (as the original fireplace was there for a reason), retrofitting a new electric firebox insert into the cavity is a great solution! Or, if creating a brand-new fireplace feature you may want to opt for a wall-mount, media unit, or furniture mantel.
With Dimplex electric fireplaces you can be assured that your child’s space is comfortable and safe. This is because our fireplaces are cool to the touch, while providing just the right amount of heat. This makes them a great option for warming up any space where your children spend a lot of time. Whether our flames are sealed behind glass, or out in the open, you can feel confident little fingers are safe.
In addition, because there is no combustion, there is no concern for carbon monoxide poisoning or sparks flying, which gives homeowners peace of mind from these dangerous situations.
Electric fireplaces also contribute to a healthy indoor environment. They don’t emit harmful emissions or particles, and they reduce dampness and moisture, improving air quality, and making them a favorite among asthma and allergy sufferers.
Warming up a cold space can be difficult, especially when there are kids involved. You are constantly concerned with safety and ensuring your little one’s hands don’t get burned. But, with so many homes having cold corners and basements, especially when the home is older, secondary heat is a must have for whole home comfort.
Fireplaces, in a child’s space can also act as a soothing night light.
Fireplaces are known to be relaxing, which makes them a useful tool when getting your kids to wind down before bed. Set a comfy chair in front of the electric fireplace and you and your little ones can read a story by the flickering flames and glowing embers.
