Two-Sided Ethanol Fireplaces
The only thing better than an ethanol fireplace is one you can enjoy in multiple rooms. With a two-sided or multi-sided fireplace, you can do just that! Two-sided ethanol fireplaces refer to fireplace inserts that are open on two or more sides, with the intent of being placed into a custom surround that will allow you to view the fire across multiple spaces.
The benefits of this type of design are endless. You’ll maximize your ethanol fireplace investment by enjoying the fire in more than one room. You’ll also create a sense of harmony and connectivity between two spaces, for a better flow. You can view your fireplace as a way to break up a large great room and create an elegant, unobtrusive division of space.
Where do people typically install their two-sided fireplaces? You can put a two-sided fireplace between just about any two rooms, but some common choices include between a master bedroom and bathroom, a dining room and kitchen, or a living and dining space but often forgotten is a double sided fireplace outdoor! You can even use a fireplace insert to divide up a bigger living space, creating a separate conversation nook or office tucked behind a two-sided ethanol fireplace.
