Matching your TV Size to your Fireplace


Escea understands that while the fireplace is the heart of the home, you can’t watch the latest episode of Grand Designs on our fires (yet?). We’ve endeavoured to get the TV as low as possible above the fireplace so that whether it is Game of Thrones, Suits, or The Kardashians (we won’t judge!), you won’t strain your neck with a TV too far up the wall.

One question Escea gets asked a lot, is “what size fire would be best for my 65inch TV?” – And so we’ve created this design guide, to help you match your TV to the fire or your fire to your TV.

How much does it cost to run a gas fire?

We get asked this a lot – will my gas fire cost me a lot of money to run? It’s a valid question. No matter how convenient and good looking your gas fire is, if it’s going to chew through gas at an exuberant rate then you’re not likely to turn it on very much.

Here’s the thing – not all gas fires are the same.
