Fireplace design idea #2: Sun Room with see through fireplace

In this version of the Summerlyn, a popular floor plan for 2014 new homes, the sun room features a see through fireplace with views into the great room. A white column entrance lends formality to this distinct space, with direct access to outdoor living. A tile fireplace surround coordinates with the beige wall color.

Below is another custom fireplace design that uses wainscot paneling to create visual height - which draws the eye upward in this two story room filled with windows.

With a built in bookcase offering open storage, this room is suited for multiple purposes. It can serve as a traditional great room designed for entertainment or it can become a cozy reading room for relaxation by the fire.

These are some great ideas for fireplaces.  In my area, there isn't that much new construction (no room/high real estate prices), so more often it's about remodeling existing fireplaces.

I love fireplaces that divide the space, so you see it from different rooms of the property. Also outdoor fireplaces are very popular in my area.
