There’s nothing better than coming home after a bleak wintery day to cosy up to the ambience of your crackling fire – and with Santa Claus’ annual visit fast approaching, now is the perfect time to give your home a festive facelift!
From stockings to scene lighting, we love seeing our customers getting creative with their media wall displays, and we have plenty of ideas to inspire your very own Christmas grotto!
Think Inside the Box
Take full advantage of your Solution Fire by customising your fuel bed display. Evoke a frosty fireside feel by nestling shiny silver baubles amongst the logs of your fuel bed, or re-create the picturesque landscapes of Lapland with sprigs of pine – not to mention that the fresh fragrance of pine leaves will leave your home smelling incredible!
Or for a subtle seasonal switch, why not simply swap out your classic forest log fuel beds for some frosty-toned silver birch logs?
We are obsessed with @house.of.ours’ decadent display.
Deck the walls
Many of us see our fireplaces as the interior focal point of our homes, and with our state-of-the-art media wall fires, there is no denying the wow-factor that your flame display creates in your living space.
At Christmas time, traditional fireplaces truly come to life as they are often draped with festive foliage or decorative garlands, and clustered with tapered candles – and why should this be any different for your modern electric fire?
Opting for a full feature wall with creative, bespoke shelves creates the ideal space to display your decorations, and we are definitely taking notes from @chloe_dowle’s perfectly organised installation!
For a delightful festive spruce up, adding a touch of tinsel to your display can really bring that Christmassy feeling to life – we personally love rich, green-coloured tinsel for that foliage look as it can be elevated by using seasonal foraged goods such as berries and pine cones! And to truly tie in with the rest of your interior, try taking inspiration from @homeonhardwick’s lovely abode by adding some elaborate bows to your tinsel.
Or, for those who prefer minimalist decorations, this pair of neatly-hung stockings make a great alternative, and can be draped over your flame display with no fear of singeing your sack of presents!
Set the Scene
For the ultimate show-stopping effect that will no doubt wow your guests this Christmas, app-controlled, colour-changing LED scene lighting can be added to your installation, creating the perfect centrepiece for hosting festive gatherings… or cosy movie nights! Powered directly from the fire and independently controlled via the solution app, LED scene lighting allows an easy and efficient way to add another visual dimension to your suite.
And to top it off even further, Solution Fires offer six colourful pre-set flame effects, ranging from classic amber flames, to an icy blue blaze, which can be interchanged depending on your mood!
