If you have a large room, double sided stove will stand in the middle of the room and provide a sight of the dancing flames from both front and back side. This is because double sided stoves come with doors on both sides. And yes, they can be loaded from both sides if you're perhaps wondering.

If you have a central chimney and need to heat two rooms, a double sided stove is a smart choice as well. Firstly, it ensures that both rooms get the same amount heat.
