Custom media bed options - match box carsElectric fireplaces offer many amazing features that make them a great choice for any business or residential project. They are energy efficient, environmentally friendly, and completely safe for families, pets, or for use in public spaces. 

They also offer customization features, that are unavailable with other types of fireplaces, such as a variety of brilliant color themes and the ability to adjust the flame brightness and flicker.

But, there is one unique customization feature that many people are unaware of, and that is the ability to add decoration to the base of the flame (also known as the media bed).

Many people who take advantage of this feature personalize their fireplaces with driftwood, river rock, sand, pebbles, glass and crystal-like stones. In fact, we use a selection of these materials for our fireplaces and even sell media options for some of our models.

These interchangeable options can add a unique look to your fireplace, ensuring that your final installation matches your personality and design aesthetic.

While these media options are stunning choices for any fireplace, there are alot of other exciting choices that can make your fireplaces one-of-a-kind, and we love to see our customers get creative with their installations!

For example, one of our customers opted for crystal-like embers that give the fireplace an iridescent feel. To push the design further and personalize the installation, they added toy cars to the media bed.

In another installation, a Dimplex customer used Lego pieces to create a unique focal point that was a definite conversation starter.

Here are some Dimplex models that perfect for media bed decoration.
