A common strategy is to integrate the fireplace into a wall divider structure. This is a really good example of how a fireplace can be a separator between two adjacent spaces.

A particularly interesting type of fireplace is the one that’s ceiling-mounted.

And when space is limited, other design strategies can be adopted. For example, a small cottage can feature a fireplace along the window wall such as in this case. Two sofas positioned in front of the fireplace, facing each other, form a cozy and comfortable seating area. The fact that the fireplace is not particularly large or robust helps as well, allowing the room to stay airy.{found on interiormagasinet}.
