We wanted to mount the Dimplex on a ledge stone wall in our living room When the unit came and we opened it, we realized that the firebox looked unfinished. The frame is significantly wider than the firebox and it would look very odd on a wall. It is not possible to stone around it since it vents from the firebox. We did not see the flame and cannot speak to that but aesthetically the dimensions of this unit did not make keeping it an option. Overstock graciously accepted the return. We will need to try a different Dimplex model.
