The open plan living seems to be the norm with even the tiniest of urban apartments embracing them. The two-sided fireplace between the living area and the dining room makes perfect sense in here. The fireplace also becomes a part of the kitchen in here and this adds to the overall ambience of your home without any wastage of space.

Beautiful Focal Point

Do not be boxed in by the idea that the double-sided fireplace is just an addition for the minimal, contemporary or modern interior. There are plenty of industrial and traditional double-sided fireplaces that are equally impressive and ergonomic. You can just place a few seats and throw pillows around the fireplace and turn it into the perfect place for family and friends to gather during the Holiday Season and beyond as well. You can take this a level higher, with three-sided and even four-sided fireplaces that serve entire open plan living area with ease.
