We are getting still getting used to going from heating a 1400 sq ft house to a 3000 sq ft house. While the downstairs can be comfortable, the rooms upstairs are a bit chilly. Our solution? An electric fireplace. We figured it would take the edge off and add a little coziness to our bedroom. We don't have a lot of bedroom furniture either so it's a nice place to put picture frames. (Avert your eyes from the wallpaper!)
We planned on getting the fireplace as our Xmas gift to each other but didn't end up looking until a month later. Turns out that worked out great because all the fireplaces were on clearance at Home Depot! We got a $800 fireplace for $350! It had a couple small scratches but Aaron fixed those with a touch up pen.
The electric fireplace definitely warms the room up and when I'm laying in bed watching the flames I feel like I'm staying at a bed and breakfast. And the best thing? The REMOTE! Hah! I don't even have to get out of bed to turn it off!
