Tunnel Vision This super-sleek Ortal gas fireplace (supply and install $9,389) is like two in one—you get a view from both sides.

The hottest trend is linear, clean, all-glass fireplaces, says Preston Meyer of Hearth and Home Specialties in Calgary.

Go front-facing, peninsula-style or see-through and choose your media kit—stone, glass, log— and then just let the flames do the talking.
