If you like to keep up with the latest popular interior trends, you will have no doubt seen that media walls are taking the world of interior design by storm. Whilst feature walls have been around for some time, media feature walls are a relatively new idea that has recently surged in popularity, this has been accelerated by the fact that many new build homes are not built with traditional fireplaces or chimneys. The rise of new and efficient inset electric fires means that the two prominent living room features, the TV and fireplace – can be combined into one super stylish feature.

Media walls come in all shapes and sizes, a lot of which are bespoke to your requirements and are built to fit perfectly within your space. Whilst media walls offer endless options for customisation, the basic principles of creating a media wall are the same.
Whether you are replicating a chimney breast or dedicating your entire wall, most media walls are created by building a stud wall either from a wooden or metal structure.
Stud walls are also a great way to hide the unsightly cables that come with modern technology, you will need to make sure that any necessary electrical wires and sockets are run into the wall before its completed.
With many models of electric fires available, you want to be certain that the fire you choose is suitable to be installed into a media wall. The Flamerite Glazer range has been designed specifically to complement your media wall design. With six sizes available and the option to have the fire either 3, 2, or 1 sided, there is most certainly a fire for you.
