Stoves are no longer a staid choice for a home. The design of modern electric fires has come on leaps and bounds recently, with stunning looks that will heat up your home in more ways than one…

Fire of the future

Remember your grandma’s electric bar fire? Consign it to the past. There’s been a huge change in the design of electric fires over the last few years, with incredibly sleek, design-led ranges arriving on the market, perfect for modern homes.

Boating ultra-realistic living flames and ‘log’ beds that look perfect, fires such as those in the Polaris range from Charlton & Jenrick are tailor made for those who crave great aesthetics as much as the comfort and warmth that a fire can bring.

Flair without fuss

Applying the latest technological advancements, Polaris electric fires deliver good looks and excellent performance, without the numerous downsides of gas or solid fuel fires. There’s no carbon dioxide or carbon monoxide to worry about, as electric fires are fume free. Your house doesn’t require a chimney, and there’s no stress with regards to living in a smoke control area – you won’t generate any.

It’s easy to maintain as well – no carrying the ashes out and carrying logs back in on a freezing, frosty morning or when it’s raining outside. Every convenience has been considered, with a remote control to adjust the heat and lighting.

Hot looks

All of the Polaris fires come with options that puts you in control of your fire and how it looks. That includes different flame colours and speeds, different brightness settings for the fuel bed, and a choice of colours. You can opt for LED mood lighting too, ideal as part of your design scheme or if you want to make your fire a focal point.

The style versatility also extends to the shape of the fire, with the 840e ideal for wall-hanging, the 1000e a landscape fire ideal for feature walls and, perhaps most dramatic of all, the 1600e, which at 1.6m wide is ideal set into a room divider. One, two and three-sided arrangements are available on all of the fires, giving you even more ways to design the perfect home. Discover more with Charlton and Jenrick.
