There are a few options when it comes to wall mounting, but all of them will give your room that modern update you’ve been looking for:
Wall Mount: This is the easiest way to install an electric fireplace on your wall. You simply hang your fireplace on a bracket that is usually included with your purchase. This means that your fireplace will protrude from the wall approximately 4"-6" as it is on the surface of the wall, not in it. Since it is simply hanging on the wall, you can easily remove the fireplace whenever you want, or move to another room in your home.
Recessed: Electric fireplaces with the ability to be fully recessed give your wall a smooth, custom, built-in look. If you choose a recessed fireplace, please consult a professional electrician as you will most likely be hard-wiring your fireplace into your wall. These fireplaces will have the heaters on the front instead of the top or bottom, so the hot air can flow into your room. Depending on the brand, electric fireplaces can be semi-recessed or fully recessed. Semi-recessed fireplaces will still have a few inches protruding, but part will be recessed into the wall. This is a great option if you are retrofitting an electric fireplace into an existing wall opening.
