3 Types of Electric Fireplaces to Install in a 2 x 4 Wall

3 Types of Electric Fireplaces to Install in a 2x4 Wall

This question is coming up a lot: "Can I install electric fireplace in a 2 x 4 wall?"

Not all electric fireplaces can be installed in a 2" x 4" but there are 3 types that can be. Let's take a look at each one of them so that you can decide which type is best for you:

1. Slim Electric Fireplaces 

These slim electric fireplaces are under 4" deep and are able to fit into a regular 2 x 4 wall. Once you install them they will look completely flush with the wall and have a finished look. Some of the most popular examples include Amantii Panorama XS, and Remii Extra Slim.

2. Partially Recessed Fireplaces

Partially recessed electric fireplaces are slightly deeper than 4" but they still can be installed into a 2 x 4 wall. It is accomplished by a partial recess installation. This means that the fireplace will not be flush with the wall and will stick out just a little. Modern Flames Spectrum Slimline and Modern Flames CLX fireplaces are a perfect example of this type.

3. Deep Fireplaces with Trim

These fireplaces can be installed into a 2 x 4 wall with the addition of a special trim that makes this installation look flowless.

Manufacturers of such high-end fireplaces as Dimplex Ignite XL and 2-Sided Napoleon Clearion recognized the demand for 2 x 4 installations and created special trims for their fireplaces to allow for such installations. 

The trim will fill in the gap between the wall and the fireplace making the fireplace look great from any angle.
