But there’s another inexpensive and practical way to kill the cold. (Cranking your thermostat up from 0 to 100 real quick, which increases your heating bill by about 3% for each degree you turn up, isn’t one of those ways.)
So let’s explore space heaters. Their compact form and efficient, high-heat output are perfect for adding tons of warmth to any room in your apartment. Sure you may already have a space heater, but is it sexy? Or does it resemble a clunky PC tower from the early 2000s?
This winter, stay toasty and in style with any one of these seven sexy space heaters.
1. Anna Little
Anna Little looks like a speaker, but it’s really the apple of our space-heater eye. At only 9.24” tall and 5.75“ wide, it’s the perfect companion to any small space that needs a little extra heat. Which is easy to adjust thanks to its two power settings.
This sleek, 3-pound space heater is also equipped with a self-regulating PTC ceramic heating element (which prevents it from overheating) and automatic shut-off. Just in case Anna Little fails at this and face-plants instead. Scoop it up for $99.99 from Stadler Form.
2. Crane Mini Fireplace Heater
No fireplace? No problem. Set the mood using a Crane Mini Fireplace Heater. It emits the ember glow you’ve always wanted, minus the mess (and heat if you just want that faux-fireplace appeal).
The price: $89.99.
The payoff: You can warm up while winding down in any room. This super quiet, retro-looking space heater has a convenient handle and body that stays cool while keeping you snug all winter long.
White, orange, black, or red, the stunning Crane Mini Fireplace Heater is sure to turn heads.

Tight on floor space? Take up zero floor space. Mount the slim De’Longhi Mica Thermic HMP1500 on your wall using the included wall-mounting kit. Then simply adjust its thermostat and heat setting to your liking and do your thing.
This sliver also boasts safety features like thermal cut-off so the unit never overheats, power and caution lights to keep you in-the-know, and automatic shutoff if the unit gets tipsy. At $79.00 on Amazon, the Mica Thermic HMP1500 is one attractive space-and-money-saving heater.
4. Dyson Hot + Cool
No “Sexy Space Heater” list would be complete without the Dyson Hot + Cool. Although it’s the most expensive on our list ($299 with free shipping from Dyson), it’s also the most versatile. Whether you’re goin up on a Tuesday in winter, or taking time to sit back and unwind in the summer, summer, summertime, the Dyson Hot + Cool keeps you comfortable with its Air Multiplier technology.
Oh, and it includes a remote control so you can adjust the airflow, oscillation, and temperature like a boss. The only thing the Dyson Hot + Cool won’t do is be your light saber.
If Max could talk, it’d mumble “Sup Jetsons?” This futuristic, award-winning showpiece silently beats the heat in the summer and the cold in the winter through its Kendo-style grill.
Stand it on top or underneath your desk, turn its dial to warm your feet or cool your face, and witness it’s three metal legs guard against accidental blows from roaming coworkers, kids, and Astros. Experience all this adventure for $119.99 at Kohl’s.
