23 Double-Sided Fireplace Designs in the Living Room

A double-sided fireplace could also be a good idea for a divider in the interior.

Most homes would have a fireplace especially if you are located in an area where there is winter and where the weather is cold. It would be very comfortable to sit near the fire and read a book or just relax. What adds to the wonderful feel of the space is its manner of arrangement as well as the decors that are added to it. Speaking of fireplace, there are different kinds of fireplace designs that one can use for the home and what we will showcase today are double sided ones that can provide warmth to sides of the house.

A fireplace is usually included as a focal point in the house. With that, it would oftentimes have a beautiful design that will bring some lovely appeal to the space. And of course, it can also provide you the heat that you need whenever you feel cold. But aside from that, a fireplace can also be effectively used as a divider to separate interior rooms. With that, it can be enjoyed on both areas of the house. Let us take a look at some double-sided fireplace designs in the living room below.
