Two-way fireplaces are the perfect room divider.  Having a functional fireplace in several rooms of the home is a dream of many.  That dream is a reality with the two-sided fireplace design, where one central fireplace serves two or more rooms.  Accessibility is convenient and the open floor plan space is divided, marking definite areas in the home while keeping with the open feeling.

A two-sided fireplace doesn’t have to stand alone.  A television can be integrated into the fireplace surround.  This offers a dual-purpose focal point for the room without sacrificing additional space.
