For some, winter means battening down the hatches and succumbing to the toasty allure of the indoors...
Nothing wrong with that — who doesn’t love a soft blanket, a comfy couch and a steaming cup of hot chocolate? But staying inside can also mean missing out on the outdoor charms of the cold-weather months.
Charms, like an outdoor fireplace! Besides enhancing your décor, it provides lovely heat and comfort as the swaying flames soothe and hypnotise your mind into a quiet state of tranquility.
Whilst fireplaces are mainly reserved for use during the cold winter months, they add warmth, style and personality to your outdoor space all year round! You need only to incorporate a nice fireplace into your otherwise ordinary outdoor space to make it more inviting to your guests.
A fireplace is a great focal point for your outdoor space. It can easily transform your patio or deck into a great scene-stealing spot ideal for entertaining your guests. The area around your fireplace is also great for relaxing or socialising – even on a cold winter evening. At any outdoor gathering, firesides are where most conversation takes place.
Outdoor fireplaces are available in traditional wood burning or gas powered. An advantage of using a gas burning fireplace is that you will receive instant heat and warmth without having to feed the flames constantly. However, if you prefer the rustic smell of burning logs, you should consider a wood burning fireplace. After all, there is something romantic about it.
Outdoor spaces are fast becoming an extension of indoor spaces. Needless to say, most homeowners are keen on using their outdoor space in as many ways as possible. When it comes to outdoor fireplaces, we have a vast selection of styles available including, firepits, firebaskets and chimeneas. So, finding the right design that suits your budget, space and sense of style is easy.
Don’t let the cold air and shorter days keep you indoors for the most part of winter. By adding an outdoor fireplace, your garden can be usable all year round!
