The instructions with the fire completely contradicted this and said: "for best effect leave 600mm clearance between the floor and the bottom of the fire and do not put anything on the wall closer than 1 metre above the fire" and given that the fire is 560mm high it is patently obvious that there is no room for a… Read more
