Heating an All-season Outdoor Space
The popularity in outdoor rooms continues to rise. Furnishing a patio and backyard with a simple dining set and barbecue was once the rule. Now those exterior spaces have evolved into a true extension of the home, complete with an elaborate outdoor kitchen, living and dining areas, for a space that brings all of the indoor conveniences and comfort to the outdoors. Consider these tips for making the most of your outdoor room this season.
Separate the space with a fireplace
Outdoor Fireplaces offer a focal point to the outdoor living space and create an inviting ambience for entertaining or just cozying up under the stars. They can help separate an outdoor area, distinguishing the living room area from a dining or kitchen space. From traditional to modern, there’s a fireplace design to suit any home décor.
Add a fire table to an entertaining area
Fire Tables are a beautiful and practical way to integrate a fire element into an outdoor space. An alternative to traditional outdoor dining and coffee tables, fire tables offer a centerpiece for enjoying a meal or cocktails alfresco. Fire tables are available in both chat and dining height and in a wide variety of styles and colors.
Enhance a patio with fire bowls and urns
There’s nothing like the allure of fire to create a relaxing atmosphere in your backyard. You can bring that cozy feeling outside by incorporating fire bowls or fire urns around the perimeter walkway or entrance in your outdoor space. To help you enhance your fire feature, we’ve put together a video explaining how to accessorize your gas fire pit.
Use a patio heater for customizable heating
Patio heaters are one of the best options for fully customizable outdoor heating. Powerful outdoor infrared heaters use radiant energy to heat people and objects in their path, but not the surrounding air, making them extremely wind resistant. Ceiling or wall mount patio heaters do a great job of warming space while blending in to your outdoor decor, while freestanding patio heaters are much more portable giving you a flexible option that can be stored away in summer.
