31 Double-Sided Fireplaces With Pros And Cons
A fireplace is always a centerpiece in any home and any space, this is a spot where the whole family gathers. If you are choosing a fireplace, consider having a double-sided one as it has an obvious advantage: it will give interest, coziness and warmth to two spaces, not just one. Apart from being a fabulous designer feature, double-sided fireplaces are also a great way to break up space while sustaining visual and light flow between two areas. Here are some pros and cons of such fireplaces to understand if it’s for you or not.
Pros Of Double-Sided Fireplaces
Double-sided fireplaces are safer than many other kinds of fireplaces due to the sturdy glass enclosing the flame. This is particularly ideal if you have small children in your house. Some fireplaces come with no covers and screens at all, so don’t choose them if you have small kids and pets around.
A modern two-sided fireplace will definitely be a conversation starter as they are extremely stylish and highly uncommon, they will warm up physically and psychologically two spaces at once bringing ultimate coziness to both. My favorite idea is a double-sided fireplace between a master bedroom and bathroom – it’s sure to turn your space into a relaxation oasis.
Double-sided fireplaces are usually located between two full-sized areas. By doing so, the heat is evenly distributed compared to a traditional hearth placed against one wall. With conventional fires, the heat can cluster up in one area rather than scatter throughout the entire space.

Cons Of Double-Sided Fireplaces
This will not be an issue if the two-sided fireplace will be installed in a partial divide that is only 3ft high. But if you’re going to place a double-sided fireplace on a floor-to-ceiling divide, then you have to make sure that you are utilizing proper wall supports. Remember that without correct supports, the fireplace could collapse anytime.
Double-sided fireplace is still a new concept on the market nowadays, which means that it also comes with a higher price tag than the traditional items that have been around for many years. Nevertheless, double-sided fireplaces are worthy of your investment.
