What Houzz contributors are saying:
Warm both sides. The divider is vertical, rather than horizontal, in this home. Again, it creates more intimate areas within an open layout. The bonus is the inset fireplace, which is double-sided and a cozy focal point for this seating area and the one beyond. The firewood storage alongside also allows glimpses from one space to the other, maintaining the open feel.
3. Divide with a fireplace. Here, a large open-plan living area is neatly divided with the addition of a tall fireplace with see-through glass doors on both sides, allowing a line of sight from one side to the other while clearly separating the space into two living areas — a main seating area on this side and a smaller den behind. The neat firewood “wall” next to the fireplace is a practical addition and provides another division between the two spaces.
