Double-sided stoves & fires

A dual-aspect unit could make a stunning centrepiece for your home. Emily Smith takes a closer look at the various ways to incorporate this stylish design element in your project

design details

The Metro 130XT Tunnel Eco Wave gas closed fire by Dru measures 1,300mm wide and can be controlled remotely from your smartphone or tablet. Priced at £4,420 (incl. VAT), it has a heat output of 10.8kW

The warm glow of flickering flames make an attractive and atmospheric addition to any home, oozing with focal feature potential. And where better to place an eye-catching centrepiece than in the middle of the room? While conventional products are traditionally restricted to the peripheries of a space, modern double-sided stoves and fires make this look possible.

A popular solution is to place the unit within a partition wall. Perfect for zoning large open-plan areas, the divider could be protruding out from one wall or standing independently in the middle of a room, so you can walk around either side. One way to make the design really pop is by cladding it in a different covering to the rest of the room – slate can make a real statement, for instance. Take the look one step further by including a cut-out area within the partition to form a stylish log store.
