In the middle of renovating our house. The original lounge had a fireplace centred on one wall and fitted wall units on both sides. We have made the room smaller and removed all the units but can't afford to remove the chimney brest. Original plan was to build a false wall and have no fire but now that the units have been removed I like the space it gives us. Dilemma is does the fire have to be centred in the room? We are thinking of something modern with no surround. Picture shows false wall to the left of the fireplace which can be removed.
