Media walls are the latest home improvement feature for many a modern home. Gone are the days of the traditional centrally positioned fireplace with a TV on a stand at the corner of your lounge. A media wall now incorporates the two together combing a long landscape fire with a TV mounted above resulting in a real wow factor, making the room feel much bigger and freeing up more space in the room.

We have put together the following points to help you when planning and considering a Media Wall in your own home.

  • TV size: A useful starting point is to consider what size your TV is, as the size of the TV usually affects the size choice of your media fire.
  • Size and Space: Measure the space where you plan to install the media wall. Consider the dimensions of the wall, the height of the room, and your furniture layout. Ensure the size of the media wall complements the room and leaves enough space for other furniture and ease of movement in the room.

  • Style and Design: Select a media wall fire that matches your preferred style and complements the overall aesthetics of your room. Choose a design that aligns with your personal taste and budget.
  • Heat Output and Heating Capacity: Most electric fires have a maximum heat output of 2kW and are designed to be used as a secondary form of room heating, and to give a room a heat boost on a cool summer evening when full home heating is not needed.

  • Flame Effects and Realism: All electric fires and flame pictures are not the same. You really need to view these in a showroom and look for models that offer realistic flame effects with adjustable settings, such as flame brightness, speed, sound effects or colour. You can also look at the different fuel beds – upgraded real logs is an extremely popular choice now. Media fires come in a variety of sizes to suit every room from 900mm to 2400mm.
  • Storage and Organization: Consider the amount of storage and organization you require. Think about the media equipment you have, such as a TV, audio devices, gaming consoles etc. Choose a media wall that provides sufficient shelving, cabinets, drawers, or compartments to accommodate and neatly store your media components and accessories.
  • Lighting: Decide if you want to incorporate lighting features into your media wall. Consider options such as integrated LED lights or backlighting that can enhance the ambiance, provide accent lighting, or improve visibility of the media components.
  • Installation and Assembly: Consider the installation process and complexity of the media wall. Determine if it requires professional installation or if it can be assembled and installed by yourself.
  • Budget: Set a budget for your media wall project. A media wall expert can offer great advice to find a media wall that fits within your budget while still meeting your requirements.
