Two-for-One Fireplace


A two-sided wood-burning fireplace is less expensive to install than two separate fireplaces because it requires only one flue and chimney.

Situated between the dining room and kitchen, this fireplace includes an understated yet pretty fireplace surround, which complements the traditional feel created through the furnishings and decorative elements in both rooms.

A two-sided fireplace can create a partial wall or peninsula to divide an area and define its uses. It is particularly effective in a lengthy living room like this one, where the space could look stark and cold without some sort of separation. The dark, eye-catching surround provides contrast to the neutral walls and flooring.
