Photos of festive fireplaces (Christmas 2018)

As usual, we have been asking our customers and social media followers to feed our twin loves of fireplaces and the Christmas period by sharing photos of their festive fireplaces with us.

And as usual, lots of you have very kindly obliged by showing us how you’ve got your hearths, mantelpieces and surrounding areas decked out for a cosy Christmas.

We’ve received photos of woodburners, multi-fuel stoves and electric fires adorned with a variety of Christmas decorations for the festivities. They look great.

So light the fire, put your feet up and enjoy a well-deserved mince pie as you browse through a selection of festive fireplaces.

As you have probably noticed, Christmas is fast-approaching. Our cut-off date for Christmas deliveries has now passed, with a final dispatch of appliances from our warehouse taking place yesterday.

Last order dates for Christmas 2018 delivery from gr8fires.co.uk

No doubt you’ll want to be warm and cosy at Christmas. If there is something you need from us that is going to help you to stay warm and cosy this Christmas, please get your order in as soon as possible.

If you would like an item to be delivered before Christmas, please place your order before 11.59pm on Sunday, 16 December (the earlier, the better). This will allow us to prepare your order for a final pre-Christmas dispatch from our warehouse on Monday, 17 December.

Ordering by this date doesn’t 100% guarantee Christmas delivery – stock levels, bad weather and other circumstances affecting the delivery companies we work with might still intervene – but, assuming nothing out of the ordinary affects the delivery schedule, all items ordered before midnight on Monday morning will be with you in time for Christmas.

So, whether you’re planning a last minute job to install a wood-burning stove or multi-fuel stove before St Nick arrives, you want to upgrade your electric fire or you need to stock up on stove parts and accessories to get your appliance ready for the busy festive season, this weekend is the time to do so.

In fact, why not place your order now (before it slips your mind, as things tend to do at this time of year). You can shop for what you need at gr8fires.co.uk and we’ll get anything you order on its way to you as quickly as possible.

Happy Christmas to you.

Photos of festive Christmas fireplaces

A nice fireplace is a great feature in the home at any time of year, but it really comes into its own at Christmas. The fireplace becomes a real focal point over the festive period: it’s where Santa Claus arrives to deliver our presents, it is often a key part of our decorations and, of course, we value its warmth during the cold weather and during our days spent relaxing in the comfort of our own home.

At Gr8Fires.co.uk, we’re lucky to have customers who are just as passionate about their fireplaces as we are. Over the year, many of them have shared photos of their festive fireplaces with us so that we can see how they’ve the Christmas spirit to their hearth and mantel.

Here is a collection of those images, which we will add to over time. If you would like to share a photo of your festive fireplace with us, the easiest way is to publish your picture to the Gr8Fires Facebook page or Twitter account. In the meantime, enjoy these festive Christmas fireplaces.
