Apologies, I have no idea where to post this question, where to start, or where to look if anyone asked before.
We are looking to add a gas fireplace and framed “chimney breast” into the formal lounge of a typical 10yo project home. Fireplace will be on an external wall (brick veneer).
Looking at Jetmaster heat&glo 5x, for a more traditional look I suppose.
Question is how wide to build the new chimney breast? Internal wall its going on is only 4.5m wide, so we’ll end up with alcoves each side.
Thinking to split into thirds, so 1.5m alcove, 1.5m “built out” chimney breast, then 1.5m alcove the other side.
Looking for ideas, pix etc.

We had a real flame landscape, in our last house which we loved, we were going to put in an Escea this house until we found the real flame landscape was being discontinued…

My thoughts exactly. Get a double between dining/media. Will look amazing

Maybe I'm overthinking it and the simple answer is as you described, just take it to the top floor. Thanks!
