Black Montagu with white and grey marble mantlepiece

Selected private projects

Below is a collection of selected customer's projects and pictures, demonstrating real-life private projects with our gorgeous bioethanol fires.

Over the past 20 years, we have received numerous pictures and emails from happy customers transforming their fireplaces and rooms with our products. Sometimes they purchased a fireplace and hung or positioned it where there used to be an empty wall. Other times they just used a bio fuel burner box to insert into their existing fireplace setup.

Carrington Traditional Fireplace is one of our bestsellers.

Bryan is very happy with it and we think it looks wonderful in his home.

“My gorgeous new fireplace arrived at 11am this morning. 2 hours later, this is what it looked like! Thank you, I love it!

Thanks again,

Carrington Bioethanol fire


We received a wonderful email with amazing pictures from Michelle.

She’s recently bought our Black Globe Flame for her home – what a perfect match it is! It looks stunning.

“Dear Bio Fires,
Thank you thank you.  I absolutely love my fire, I just had to send you some pics. Honestly, I really do love my fire, it’s such a perfect fit in my home and gives me that fabulous warmth that you can only get with a real flame. It’s stunning, many of my friends will be contacting you.
My very best wishes
Michelle “

Private project with Black Globe in contemporary living room


Gemma got in touch with us after making this fire surround herself especially to fit our DIY Firebox Insert.

We’re absolutely amazed. Well done!

“I made the fire surround myself 🙂
I do carpentry as a hobby, it’s made of wood and then painted. Also, I made it specifically to fit your fire insert. My house is a new build so lacks character, which is what I’m trying to implement with the fireplace and paneling around.
The hearth is a piece of rough-cut Yorkshire stone I picked up from a local stone merchant. Finally, I’ve used Farrow and Ball ‘Mizzle’ paint on the walls.”

selected private project with DIY firebox Insert

We got a lovely email from John with wonderful pictures of his old and new fireplace and a review.

He transformed his old fireplace with our Lexham Bioethanol Mini-Basket Fire Insert and a new fireplace surround. How stunning!

“I bought a Mini Basket from you a little while ago which I have now fitted in place in my new fireplace. Then, I replaced my previous insert which was from Bio Fires I think around 9 years ago, so I am an existing customer. I thought you might like a picture of the before and after! The fireplace is from a company called Decorative Designs ( The fire arrived aid fitted on perfectly with my new fireplace and decor. It works like a dream and looks truly elegant and stylish and has become the focal point of the room. Definitely a great value, elegant and functional fire insert from a fabulous company.
Thanks, I love the fireplace.”

Our customer Carmen sent us lovely pictures of her fireplace featuring our Polished Steel Bio Ethanol Fire Grate together with this review:

“Looks absolutely fantastic! Thank you Bio Fires.
We had been looking for a long time for the best alternative to a real fire and the freestanding Polished Steel Bioethanol Fire Grate we bought from you has lived to its expectations. In fact it actually exceeded expectations! The basket is stunning and it has a lovely flame fire. Moreover, we also bought the fibre glow and the aura fragrance oil which gives an even more real feel and look. Thank you for the exceptional customer service and prompt deliver. We could not be more pleased and will definitely recommend you to anyone who is looking for an outstanding product and really good customer experience. “

Polished Steel Fascia with white mantlepiece in contemporary living room


Without doubt, we love getting emails like this! A review form a customer who finally has a fireplace working thanks to our product!!!

A redundant chimney does not have to mean that you cannot have a glorious warming fireplace, even in a traditional grate!

“16 years after our builder made a mess of our chimneys, we found out about bioethanol fireplaces and got the DIY kit from your website. Just what the doctor ordered! See a photo”

old grate converted into bioethanol fire with DIY conversion kit


Our fireplace was used in a TV show – Hollywood Me!

Top Hollywood designer Martyn Lawrence Bullard has transformed the home of 28-year-old pediatric nurse Jenny Maine and has gone on full power with ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s inspired 60s chic.

Our Black Onyx fits so beautifully in the mirrored set – we drew one big conclusion – OUR FIRES ADD SOME HOLLYWOOD TO YOUR LIFE! 🙂
