People have always used fireplaces, pits or bowls to heat them on the colder days and nights, but these days, when our outdoor spaces are looking more like outdoor living rooms, with all the comfort and relaxation that goes with their décor, these heating sources are becoming their integral part. Selecting the perfect piece to complement that décor is not easy at all, but these simple directions will lead you to making a good choice:
Consider your needs. Know exactly what it is that you want from your fireplace or firepit. If your primary goal is to just heat up the outdoor area, the options are much wider, but if you want to also use it for cooking, a store-bought or home made fire pit might be a better option.
Consider the available space. All models differ significantly. Some are built on the ground with a real campfire feel, while others have high chimneys that take a lot of space; some are larger to accommodate greater groups of people around it, and some are table fire models combining two of its functions, heat and a place for the drinks and plates. There are even portable patio heaters to be used where space is limited. Take this into consideration when selecting your ideal model.
Consider the style and design. The outdoor fireplace, fire pit or fire bowl should complement the rest of the outdoor décor. A chimney-style look, for instance, won’t fit everywhere. The style and design you’ll choose should correspond well.
Consider the budget. The available budget you have may greatly narrow your options. But, keep in mind that the quality is not something we should compromise on. If we do, at the end, we’ll only end up paying more for buying several, instead of only one good-quality fireplace or fire pit that will last for many years. Invest in the best you can afford.
