Double-Sided Cozy Delights!

There’s no doubt that the double-and triple-sided fireplaces are the showstoppers of the collection showcased here. The reasons go beyond the obvious fact that they look incredibly chic and trendy. These contemporary installations also bring in an array of functional advantages that are the key to their growing popularity. For starters, they serve as fireplaces in more than just one room. Couple them with a classic stone wall or a smartly placed partition and they double as cool dividers that create individual spaces in an open floor plan.

Double-sided fireplaces work exceptionally well in small dining and living room combinations. They illuminate both areas gracefully and take up little space in the process. If having two separate fireplaces for the dining room and the living room does not work for you, just get one of these twin-sided wonders and solve your space conundrum with glassy flair!

A Brilliant Focal Point

A fireplace is always a great focal point around which you can design the remainder of the room. Couple it with interesting artwork and you instantly have a wonderful backdrop for your dining room that is both vivacious and dynamic. One of the best ways to draw attention to the fireplace is by keeping the rest of the decor as minimal as possible. While adding interesting accessories to the mantel helps, it is not mandatory.

A special accent wall designed specifically to highlight the fireplace is another great way of putting the focus squarely on the hearth. Painting the mantel in bold hues or incorporating a colorful tile surround are a couple other innovative ways to accentuate the look of the dining table fireplace. But no matter what you do, make sure that you stick to the existing theme and color scheme of the room.

Mantel That Makes a Statement!

The holiday season is indeed here, and most of us are engrossed in the festivities. This is one time of the year when the fireplace becomes all the more important. An intricately and appropriately decorated fireplace mantel is an intrinsic part of the festive joy. Most of us love to dress up the mantel beautifully with everything ranging from family photographs to lovely vases and shiny Christmas ornaments. Dining room walls are notoriously popular spots for displaying unique artwork and fabulous wall arrangements. Yet you can also place these treasures elegantly above the fireplace mantel to easily create a picture-perfect look.
