Today’s portable electric fireplaces offer realistic-looking flames, attractive designs, supplemental heat to combat wintry drafts and the versatility to arrange a room to suit your taste.

Real Flame Fresno Electric Fireplace Media Console. This is an easy way to create a faux built-in look in your living room. The firebox is set within a solid-wood media cabinet in walnut, black or white, with six shelves and a spacious mantle. Bed Bath & Beyond, $1,012.99.

Hampton Bay Crestland 13-inch Desktop Electric Fireplace. Nothing beats this model’s portability. At 13.9 x 7.4 x 13 inches, it’s better thought of as a miniature yet still tastefully designed. Place it on your desk to add warmth on a bitter winter day. It heats an area up to 400 square feet. The Home Depot, $59.

Real Flame Foster Electric Stove, This mimics a wood-burning stove, with lifelike flame and a “stovepipe.” And it kicks out enough supplemental heat for a 1,000-square-foot space. The Home Depot, $620.87.

Holly & Martin Frescan Alexa-Enabled Electric Fireplace. Made of wood, iron and glass, this model sports a modern design—a monochrome square box atop an open-frame base. It is remarkably versatile, allowing it to blend with several motifs, and it is especially suited to open-concept spaces. You can adjust the thermostat with Alexa or by remote control. Provides supplemental heat for 400 square feet. Bed Bath & Beyond, $849.99.

Northwest 36-Inch Fire and Ice Electric Fireplace Heater. Constructed of steel and glass, this simple wall-mounted fireplace displays flames that are orange, blue or a combination of both. To achieve something more classic, you could add a surround or do some tiling and build your dream fireplace on a budget. Bed Bath & Beyond, $195.99.
