Cambridge, Ontario – Buying furniture usually means sifting through available styles, making a choice, then finding just the right place for the new acquisition. Owners of the new Brookings media console fireplace from Dimplex can add another aspect to the enjoyment of their new furniture: the ability to change the appearance and functionality of the unit with three interchangeable sets of door panels. The glass door panels provide an open, contemporary appearance to the classic transitional-style cabinetry while the wood inserts show off more of the rich espresso finish and lend a more traditional appearance. For those who use accessory speakers with their flat-screen TV but want an uncluttered appearance, the speaker fabric insert allows them to conceal the speakers within the storage cabinet without sacrificing any of the sound.
The Brookings media console fireplace is an easy choice for those seeking the perfect home for their flat screen TV.
“We wanted a design that would integrate well with both traditional and modern décors as well as being a completely functional center for home entertaining,” says Colin Stewart, Design Director at Dimplex. “In addition, we thought it would practical and fun to provide owners the ability to customize the look and function of their units, so we are including the three sets of door panels to meet that goal.”
Before thinking about which style of decorative door panels to use, prospective buyers of a Brookings fireplace will have to decide which of the two available wide screen electric fireplaces they would prefer to enjoy. One strikes a very modern note, incorporating a warm glowing bed of crushed glass that pulsates softly when the unit is turned on. The other features a beautifully-crafted traditional log set and ember bed for a classic appearance. Both electric fireplaces feature the Dimplex patented life-like flame effect to inspire a relaxed atmosphere, as well as operate safely close to flat-panel TV’s.
Dimplex electric fireplaces are capable of taking the chill off a room with their fan-forced electric heaters and built-in automatic thermostats. Owners can enjoy the tranquility of a fire even in warm temperatures as Dimplex fireplaces can be used with or without heat. The safe, clean electric operation means the Brookings fireplace is easy on the environment and has a small carbon footprint. Both versions operate on any standard 120V household outlet and require no venting or other complicated installation. They can simply be set in place and plugged in. Operation of the Brookings is very economical; average operating costs are less than one cent per hour with the flame operating without heat and four cents per hour with the heater operating.
