Among all types of fireplaces, panoramic and island ones stand out especially. They are the most noticeable, you definitely cannot pass by! Our tips site has put together a vivid photo selection of such hearths for you to clearly show how interesting panoramic and island fireplaces can be..
Let’s clarify right away that panoramic fireplaces and island fireplaces are not the same thing. Panoramic fireplaces are traditionally called three-sided fireplaces, in which the firebox is fully open or glazed on three sides. They are wall-mounted, or rather protruding from the wall. The portal has already written about what kind of fireplaces are in the interior. We also told that the fireplace can be built into the wall, or it can protrude from it. Such a ledge allows you to open the firebox from two more sides, on the sides.
Island fireplaces are located in the center of the room and are open from four sides. This is definitely the most noticeable element of the interior of the room, making it a real fireplace room, where everyone gathers around the hearth, like around a fire on the street. However, island fireplaces are also often called panoramic, hence the slight confusion.
Island fireplaces are a real art object, the center of attraction for any room. There are disadvantages to such fireplaces – you need a large enough room. Also, center fireplaces are usually designer and expensive. In addition, it is necessary to create an appropriate environment around the island hearth. At the same time, a fireplace in the center of the room allows you to zone the space, for example, to separate the dining room from the living room. Or create a very cozy lounge area.
