First Look: Electric Fireplaces

Posted by: on December 23rd, 2012 | Make A Comment

A great way to add ambiance to your home and gain energy-efficient zone heating at the same time is with an electric fireplace. Our Hampton Bay electric fireplaces feature SpectraFlame LED lighting technology, which translates to a bulb life in excess of 20,000 hours and lower utility bills. They are also very easy to set up anywhere in your home as no ventilation is required, and you can use them with or without heat.

Our Hampton Bay electric fireplaces come in a variety of styles and colors sure to match any décor. You can even find one centered around an entertainment center or media unit with a backlit temperature display that keeps you informed of temperature changes instantly.

Associate Chad Terry highlights our line of Hampton Bay electric fireplaces in this week’s First Look video.

Our First Look series gives Apron Blog readers an inside look by highlighting some of the videos our store associates watch to learn about the new products and services available at The Home Depot.

A Family Friendly Outdoor Living Room

A beautiful outdoor living room by Joslyn from Simple Lovely


In our Style Challenge series, we challenge some of our favorite bloggers from around the web to surprise us with their ideas for creating a stylish and functional space using a single Home Depot product as a starting point. 

Joslyn Taylor from Simple Lovely showcases her family-friendly outdoor living room, a space that feels chic enough for summer entertaining and comfy enough for her two precious daughters! She shows us how she made the Hampton Bay Cibola Sectional Seating Set her own with playful accessories like a chalkboard! and luxe details.

Despite the fact that our family is happiest when we’re outside, we’ve largely neglected our covered back patio since moving into our house five years ago. It really is a perfect spot for any number of activities best enjoyed when accompanied by a little fresh air, and it’s fully visible from the row of floor-to-ceiling windows in our living room. Yet somehow transforming the patio into a truly lounge-worthy space always seemed to fall to the bottom of our to-do list, trumped by some other more pressing house project.

Enter Home Depot. When they asked me to participate in the Style Challenge, I dove right in, happy to finally have an excuse to pull the trigger on “Operation Loungify the Patio”. I knew I wanted the space to channel my earthy, casual (mildly hippie) Northern California childhood, but tempered with a few touches of glam to balance things out. I also wanted maximum cozy comfort — a spot where folks would want to tuck in for an entire afternoon. The Hampton Bay Cibola 6-Piece Sectional Patio Seating Set was a perfect jumping off point. It’s huge, perfect for lots of folks to lounge on, but not overwhelming. I also loved the neutral burnt orange, which would go well with the earthy accessories I was targeting.
