If you are looking for a fireplace that you can insert into a wall, we have many options for you to choose from. 

Fireplaces installed in the wall are also called "built-in" or "recessed".  These fireplaces are designed to be installed into a niche in a wall.

!! Not to be confused with wall-mounted or "wall mount" fireplaces that hang on top of the wall surface instead. Learn more about wall mounted fireplaces here: Wall Mounted Fireplaces

Some built-in fireplace models can also be installed as wall mounted. This information can be found in product descriptions under "Features".

4 Types of Fireplaces to Install In The Wall

1. In-Wall Electric Fireplaces

2. In-Wall Water Vapor Fireplaces

3. In-Wall Ethanol Fireplaces

4. In-Wall Ventless Gas Fireplaces

These four types of in-wall fireplaces can be installed into any wall including drywall. Electric and water vapor fireplaces don't have any restrictions or special fireproofing requirements. While some models of ethanol and ventless gas fireplaces will require basic fireproofing and maintaining clearances to combustibles - please follow installation instructions located in product manuals. 

There are three ways most people approach installing these "in-wall fireplaces". 

3 Installation Options Of In-Wall Fireplaces

1. Cut an opening in the existing wall and insert the fireplace there. 

This installation option is possible if the fireplace is slim enough to fit inside of the existing wall depth. Most electric and ethanol fireplaces can fit inside 2" x 6" walls and some slim models can even be recessed into 2" x 4" walls. You can use our filters to choose the depth that works for you.

2. Build a bump-out on an existing wall and insert the fireplace there.

This is a popular option because it allows for installation on outside walls and can accommodate deeper electric fireplace models including popular electric inserts, as well as water vapor fireplaces and ventless gas fireplaces.

3. Insert the fireplace into a cabinet or custom shelving.

This option mostly applies to electric and water vapor fireplaces because they don't have any restrictions when it comes to clearances to combustible materials like wood. We have seen people installing ethanol fireplaces into cabinetry as well but they had to use special fireproof materials for those cabinets for safety.

If you know what type of in-wall fireplace you want - electric, water vapor, ethanol, or gas - you can filter this collection by product type and keep narrowing it down from there.
