Hole in the wall firebox
Do you already have a bookcase or existing media wall, but want to add the final personalised touch to it? You can easily add a hole in the wall firebox to your existing unit. A bioethanol fireplace can add a cosy and homey feeling to a room, and you can enjoy the glow from the flames while enjoying a good movie at the same time. Even though a bioethanol fire is mainly decorative, it does radiate some heat, so the biofire will certainly add that extra cosy atmosphere on dark nights.
There are different ways to build a fireplace into an existing media wall. You can choose to add a bioethanol burner, or you can build in a bioethanol fire surround with glass in front into the existing bookcase or media wall. Take a look at at our selection of built-in bioethanol fires here.
Open media wall with three-sided fireplace
Do you want to see the flames from multiple sides? You can build an open media wall with a three-sided fireplace into your TV wall unit as well. Choosing this option for your fireplace tv wall means that you can build in a three-sided fireplace and TV into the media wall and see the flames from three sides.
Three-sided built-in bioethanol fires actually comes in two different types - what we call a 3-sided fire or a room divider. The room divider is characterised by having two long sides and one short, whereas the three-sided fire has two short sides and one long. In this case, the fire is a 3-sided bioethanol fire, and you can find our selection of them here: Bioethanol-fireplace.co.uk/Three-Sided-Bioethanol-Fireplace
Built in TV wall unit with bioethanol burner
It is possible to build a fireplace tv wall unit with just a bioethanol burner. If you choose this option it is possible to construct the wall almost exactly the way you desire. You can choose to add a small burner, but also a slim or longer burner. This solution also allows you to be flexible in terms of personalising and selecting unique materials for your fireplace. You can e.g. choose to add tiles both inside and outside the fireplace.
However, there are a few safety precautions that needs to be taken when installing the bio ethanol burner into a TV-wall, such as the distance between the burner and TV. You can read about the different options for installing the TV and bio ethanol burner in the guide Installation of a TV over the Fireplace.
See-Through Media Wall
Another unique way to build a media wall, is to build a see-through media wall, and add a see-through fireplace and a TV on one side of the wall. It is, therefore, possible to view the flames from both sides of the room. A good example would be to separate the kitchen and living room, and add a TV on one side of the fireplace TV wall. This solution can be customised to fit exactly into your home and needs, and we have a wide selection of products within our assortment that are perfect for a dividing wall with a built-in see-through fire.
However, this type of installation is not possible in every house or apartment. We will be happy to advise and guide you in finding the right solution for your fireplace tv wall. So please do not hesitate contacting us for advice!

How to build a false wall for tv and fireplace
The installation of a fireplace TV wall is not always simple, however, there are several different solutions and possibilities on how to install a TV media wall.
The most simple option for installation is to have a recess in the wall to place your bioethanol burner with a shelf under the TV to protect it from the heat of the bioethanol flames. You can also mount your TV on a recess instead of placing a shelf under the TV. Another option is also to make a hot air duct inside the wall that carries the hot air behind the TV.
Be sure to read our guide on how to install a TV over the fireplace.
Wall Mounted Electric Fireplace
It is also possible to hang a wall mounted electric fireplace below a TV and thus creating a TV wall unit with electric fireplace. It will still be a fireplace TV wall but without the hassle of building a recess in the wall.
A fireplace TV wall cannot be combined with a traditional gas or wood stove fireplace, as the heat and fire would damage the TV. Because TV's already generate a lot of heat, there is a risk of reducing the TV's lifespan if the dissipation of heat is at a high level. So, it makes sense to hang a wall mounted electric fireplace or bioethanol fireplace on a media wall.
However, not all fireplaces can be installed on a wall with a TV hanging above it. The fireplace needs to be 'closed' at the top, as the heat will therefore not rise up into the TV. The distance between the fireplace and the TV also needs to be taken into consideration, but it is also possible to install a shelf between the fireplace and the TV to minimise the heat exposure that gets to the TV.

Hanging bioethanol fireplace and tv on same wall
There are some safety measures that needs to be taken when installing a bioethanol fireplace TV wall to ensure that the fire and heat does not damage the TV. This includes the distance between the fireplace or bioethanol burner and the bottom of the TV. If the TV is installed too close to the bioethanol fireplace or electric fireplace, is can potentially damage and reduce the lifespan of the TV. However, by following the safety measures, the TV will not be overheated by the ethanol fireplace.
Automatic Remote Control for Bioethanol Burner
It is also possible to install an automatic bioethanol burner into your fireplace tv wall. It will then be possible to control the burner automatically with a remote control. This means that you can enjoy your favourite show and switch the ethanol fireplace on at the same time - it does not get much easier than that!
You can choose between a manual and automatic bioethanol burner. The manual burners are manually operated, whereas the automatic burners are automatically operated by a remote control. You can find more information about the difference between a manual and automatic burner in our guide here.
