There is nothing as cheerful and warming to the soul as a fireplace. Unfortunately most apartment dwellers are stuck without the joys of a fireplace during those brutal winter nights. Thankfully, there are fireplace alternatives that use tech features to warm up those cold nights.



  1. Fireplace Space Heater: While a Japanese product, if you happen to speak or read the language, we think this is a fine solution for those cold nights!



  2. Basra Tabletop Fireplace: Gregory featured this back in October and it captured our hearts. Compact and cute it is a wonderful way to light up your night and not burn down your apartment.



  3. Conmoto Chimney-less Fireplace: The Conmoto fireplace is a simple device meant to provide heat and flame without the need for a chimney. Now you can enjoy fire without the hassle of installing a wood or gas burning fireplace.



  4. EcoSmart Fireplace: This fireplace uses radical design and ethanol to toast your marshmallows. The fact you don't have to install it and can safely burn it in an apartment makes us excited by the possibilities.



  5. Fire DVD: The classic Fire DVD is the simplest and cheapest of the options listed. While it might not generate any heat, you can still take solace in the fact you have a fire...just don't forget to turn up the electric blanket.
