Multi-Sided Gas Fireplaces

A multi-sided gas fireplace will make a serious statement in your home. They come in many different configurations: two-sided, corner (left or right), bay peninsula, or three-sided linear. Whether you’re creating zones in an open concept space, or bridging two rooms together, a multi-sided fireplace will offer a unique and interesting alternative to traditional fireplaces.

Choosing the right multi-sided fireplace for your space can be a big question. How do you want this fireplace to function in your home? Are you looking for heat, or just for the ambiance of a fireplace? These are the same questions you would ask when looking at a traditional fireplace, you’re just looking for a more unique and interesting final design.

A bay peninsula fireplace works perfectly for creating a division between spaces in an open concept home. These multi-sided fireplaces can be finished with a wall right up to the ceiling, or a half-wall to maintain the openness of the space. These fireplaces were very popular a few decades ago and are making a comeback thanks to their versatility. Our favourite bay peninsula fireplace is the Atrium from Marquis.

A see-through fireplace is probably the most common multi-sided fireplace. These fireplaces do a great job of creating a more open feel between rooms, even when a wall is present. Bridge the space between your kitchen and dining room. We think one of the most luxurious ways to use a see-through fireplace is between your master bedroom and master bathroom. One of our favourite see-through fireplaces is the Marquis Bentley. We also love the Astria Montebello – it can even be installed in an indoor/outdoor configuration. This is not a feature all see-through fireplaces offer.

The category with the largest amount of variety to choose from is the three-sided linear fireplace. Most of these models can also be converted to a corner left or a corner right unit. These multi-sided fireplaces are big on drama. They can be installed in most areas you were planning on putting a traditional linear fireplace, so they’re definitely the most versatile of the bunch. They work perfectly in a living space below a TV or large piece of art. A corner configuration can help you to create a unique offset design with your fireplace on one side of the wall and TV on the other. We have a ton of three-sided linear gas fireplaces to choose from, some of our favourites include the Marquis Enclave (available in 48”, 60” and 72” sizes) and the Urbana U Series (available in 30”, 50” and 70” sizes).
