Key considerations for choosing a LUXury Electric Fire

Posted 6th September 2023

There has been a significant rise in demand for electric fires in recent years. A fantastic design feature for modern interiors, electric fires afford the user a state-of-the-art, ultra realistic flame display with the added bonus of little to no maintenance compared to other fireplace options.

Modern components give the appliance an indefinite lifespan and so it’s important to ensure that you select an electric fire that is right for your home, and your needs.

We spoke to Andy Hitchman, Managing Director of Solution Fires, who advises on several key considerations to be made in choosing the perfect electric fire.

Sizing Up

Everyone’s homes and room configurations are different, and there are an array of different sizes and widths to choose from, however it is important to pick a fire that is right for your space.

There is a fire to suit every home within the new Solution Fires LUX range, which is our latest line of innovation,

with models varying from the LUX75, 100, 125, 150, new LUX175 and the LUX200 for a grand centrepiece. Our new LUX electric fires even allow homeowners to create the extra wide ‘wow factor’ fire element, which can be achieved by sitting any of the LUX range of cassette fires side by side. Front, corner or panoramic options are available, providing endless possibilities.

Flame Effect

Electric fire technology has come a long way, but there is still a big variation in flame effect quality, and things like flicker speed and flame height have a big impact on how realistic the fire looks. Go for a model with crackling fire audio, as this really gives you the look and feel of a real fire. Featuring Solution Fires’ signature high definition, ultra realistic contoured flame effect technology and crackling fire audio, the LUX range offers a visually stunning effect and unparalleled authentic experience.


Many people want to be able to tailor their fire to suit their interior design style and individual taste, and having a customisable element to your fire is a big benefit. Offering a truly bespoke solution, users can fine tune the LUX display with seven new pre-set illumination themes, and a choice of nine independent fuel, flame and downlight colours which can be adjusted by brightness plus a premium, handmade fixed real wood log fuel bed.
