Have you been putting off purchasing one due to installation worries? Well, with our freestanding fires, the installation process is brilliantly uncomplicated.
Our range of freestanding electric fires can be pulled straight from the box and fitted to your wall. Or, if you pick a stove, it can be placed on any flat floor in your home. All you have to do is plug your product into any standard plug socket. Before you know it, your fire will be fully operational!

Are freestanding electric fires safe?
Freestanding electric fires do not have the same safety concerns as traditional wood-burning stoves. Managing a solid-fuel stove requires you to monitor and control any smoke, carbon dioxide or harmful gases released by your fireplace.
But with modern electric fires, the lack of a real flame means that these safety concerns are eliminated. Instead, you can experience the beauty of authentic-looking electric flames without any worries.
What should I look for when buying a freestanding electric fire?
First, you must consider the room where you want to place your freestanding electric stove. Does your room have any appropriate inset? Or do you have a central flat wall that looks rather bare?
At Fires2U, we offer a range of flat-to-wall or freestanding electric stoves. With many sizes and brands, you can decide whether your style airs more on the traditional or contemporary side of the spectrum.
To get the old-fashioned stove look, a log or coal-effect fuel bed would be a welcome addition to any freestanding electric fire. However, to switch things up, you could go for a coloured or clear pebble effect. Your fuel bed, your choice!
