  • Touchstone Sideline Elite Recessed Electric Fireplace with Black Frame

    Modern Blaze - Touchstone Authorized Dealer

    Touchstone Sideline Elite fireplace is a modern built-in electric fireplace with realistic multicolor flames, minimal black frame and a heating element that is placed in front of the frame allowing the fireplace to be recessed into a wall. Sideline Elite is hardwire ready and can be turned on with a light switch, a smart device, or remote control.

    The Sideline Elite delivers the beauty of a fireplace without any danger of fire, smell, or smoke. The Sideline Elite has 2 heat settings (high and low) with a thermostat that can be set to an exact temperature between 68F and 88F degrees. It will provide supplemental heat to a room up to 400 sq. ft. The flame also works without the heating feature, so you can enjoy it even in the summer.

    Touchstone Sideline Elite fireplace is easy to install and comes with simple and understandable instructions.

    Touchstone Sideline Elite is available in four sizes - 42", 50", 60", and 72" wide. It improves upon the original Sideline model by reducing the frame size, increasing the flame viewing area, and adding all the features you want and need.

    • Touchstone where innovation, smart design, and great customer service have made us the leader in the TV lift cabinet business.

      Over the years we have spent our time listening to our clients and have used that feedback to build products they are asking for, and with over 7000 TV lift cabinets installed we never stop listening. We have spent many long weeks and weekends at home shows talking to people just like you, finding out not only how our TV lift cabinets perform but what features we can add or remove. The result has been some innovations that we are really proud of, including:

      • End of bed cabinets with our own component shelf.
      • Versatile new cabinets that can go anywhere in any room.
      • A new line of low cost cabinets in our Elevate line of TV lift cabinets.
      • Exciting new lift mechanisms that let us set the pace on TV lift cabinet pricing.
      • Convertible cabinets with glass & wood door panel options.

        At Touchstone we oversee every step of the TV lift cabinet production process, from original design to final customer sign off. We use those opportunities to build the best TV lift cabinets available, from the lift mechanism to the integrity of the woodwork.

      I recommend this product
      Touchstone Sideline

      We love our new Touchstone Sideline electric fireplace. Shipping was fast and well packaged. Installation was easy and we use it much more then our old gas unit because you can use it in all seasons of the year.

      Great Fire Place

      I just installed our new electric fire place and we love it. It only took a couple days for delivery. It was easy to install. We love the looks of it and we will use it much more then our old gas unit because of the option of no heat.

      JP's Review

      Excellent product. Looks and works great. It was the final piece to finish off a downstairs remodel. Install was straight forward and simple. Mine took about an hour longer than some of the reviews I've read because I had to relocate some electrical, but no issues. In addition, shipping was quick and communication with Modern Blaze was excellent!

      Great company

      Product was backordered everywhere else except here. Got it and they even had a holiday discount. Will shop here again and will probably do another 45inch fireplace in the master bedroom.
