Small Package – Big Expectations
UK fire and fireplace manufacturer, Be Modern has announced the launch of a range of electric fireplace suites introduced to the Social Housing Sector, with compact living as the main focus.
Small space living has many benefits including lower rental costs, smaller heating bills and less cleaning. However, homes or flats with less floor space have limited storage room and quite often no room for finishing touches that really make a house a home. The new mini range of electric fireplace suites from Be Modern are modern in design yet practical in size, taking up very little floor space. This provides an ideal solution to living situations where standard sized fireplaces may be too large.
With home sizes decreasing and new build properties a noticeable 7% smaller than the recommended size, it’s no surprise that luxuries such as fireplaces are being overlooked. However, the Devonshire (pictured left) and Perthshire (pictured right) are Be Moderns solution for homes that yearn for a localised heating source either for practicality to save money on heating costs or aesthetics.
Roy Whitnall, Director of Trade Sales commented, “We have seen an increase in housing associations asking about suites small enough for very limited living areas, even more so in London and the South of England. Our aim with these suites is to offer residents the opportunity to have a focal point in their rooms that doesn’t invade the available living space.”
Feedback from customers has been very positive and we are hoping these fireplace suites will bring a little luxury for residents living in urban environments.”
The Devonshire is available in Natural Oak finish and the Perthshire is available in Ivory finish. They both come complete with a new electric LED fire featuring a stylish glass front fascia. The Devonshire also features a Chrome trim for a contemporary touch.
Available to Social Housing organisations nationwide, Be Modern invites all social landlords and installers to contact the Be Modern marketing department and arrange a product demonstration or viewing at a local merchant.
