What media wall fire size is best?

Getting the sizing proportions right for your media wall fire is essential and a deciding factor of whether your wall will look right for your space, especially when installing alongside a TV or sound bar.

We recommend that your fire should be around the same size as your TV or even bigger, however, this of course is down to your own personal judgement. The depth of your breast should normally pretrude the fire out, from the wall, leaving a 15cm upright.

Generally speaking, inset and outset fires are between 1.2 metres to 1.5 metres in length with a 35cm glass height display with some of the larger fires at 2.4 metres in length.

Tips And Tricks

You may want to increase the size of your TV at some stage and so this may be something to bare in mind. Also, people think that you always need to have your chimney breast centre to a room, think outside the box and place it where you believe it will work best for the room.

What fire configuration is best for you?

A media wall fire is available in three different viewing configurations that determine how the fire will be seen. Every display should be carefully configured to match your home interior and layout of your room to truly enjoy the benefit of a fireplace.

Media Wall Recesses

A recess is a great way to add some depth, a great space saving way of storing items and a way to display your items within the main centrepiece of your home. From wood storage compartments to shelving. Configure your wall just how you want it!

We also understand that access to your entertainment equipment can be tricky, that is why we design this in for you! Access through a hatch or from the back of a TV is the general rule of thumb. Compartment downlighting is also a great way to display any items placed in your wall unit.

What are some media wall finishes?

A media wall can be finished in over five different styles. A popular technique is Venetian Plaster which creates a textured 3D effect on your wall that can be finished in different colours and ranging amounts of texturing. Polished plaster also works well along with a copper venetian plaster look for media walls.

These plastering techniques add depth and vibrance to your wall and will make it stand out as a main focal point within your living room.

A feature built-in wall can also be painted, tiled or wallpapered depending on your style preferences. A new and upcoming trend is vertical wooden panelling which is slatted to create a contemporary modern style with depth. It is available in many different shades of timber and looks amazing in black.

Slatted wooden panelling is only available for electric fire inserts and not gas or wood burning. This is because wooden panelling for fireplaces is generally found to be a combustible material.
