There is no faster shortcut to creating a sense of homey comfort than a roaring fire, and no simpler centerpiece for a room design. And what is more luxurious than a double-sided fireplace that functions as a bold architectural room feature while adding warmth and atmosphere to adjoining rooms and allowing light to pass through from room to room even when the fire isn’t lit.
Double-sided fireplaces can work as practical and aesthetic room dividers that link living and dining, master bedroom and bathroom or break up the expanse of a double living room. Take a look at these double-sided fireplaces in a range of styles to inspire your home and hearth fantasies.
