Our favourite budget supermarket is selling an electric fireplace with a wood-burning stove effect. The heater will keep you warm during the gloomy winter months, whilst adding a rustic and stylish finishing touch to a living room.

Aldi electric heater

The Aldi electric heater comes in black and white and includes a lattice pattern over the faux stove door. Behind the door is fake coal that begins to glow red, like the embers of a roaring fire, when switched on. It's available online now and in stores this Thursday 29th October.

The heater has two heat settings and thermostatic temperature control which allow you to easily regulate the temperature. However, it is not just the heat settings that are fully adjustable, you can also adjust the flame effect with the dimmer function. You can easily adjust the brightness of the flames to give the feel of a cosy fire.

As always with Aldi, the best part, as well as the stylish look, is the price. Costing just £44.99 the Aldi electric heater is £20 cheaper than a similar version from Argos costing £69.99. Plus, the Argos version is only available in black. So the white version is an absolute steal.

We must admit we are big fans of the white stove. If you are itching to create a proper faux fireplace in your home on a budget see how this DIY-er from our Facebook group the Room Clinic transformed her living room with an electric heater.

If you're worried about keeping a white electric heater clean, Aldi promises that it can be easily cleaned by wiping it down with a damp cloth.

The only thing you will need to bear in mind is that unlike a real stove or fireplace you will need to plug the Aldi electric heater in. So bear that in mind when planning the new centre-piece in your living room.
