Fireplaces are super cool, aren’t they? I absolutely love cuddling up next to the fireplace with a cup of hot cocoa in my hand and a warm blanket. Your patio is your place, so why not bring that joy to that space with an outdoor patio fireplace? What’s not to love?
You are going to love this. I absolutely love having an outdoor patio fireplace. It’s so cozy and it keeps me very warm in the cooler months. A fireplace outside will keep your guests there much longer. No one is going to want to leave. Believe me. You might have to kick them out.
Light in the Night
So why get a fireplace for your patio? Of course it gets dark at night, and fireplaces are extra bright. They literally exist to give off heat and light. People will be able to see each other. What a great thing! You will be able to read your book or your magazine about patios.
Don’t be so quick to grab that flashlight when the power goes out. Just light up your fireplace. I love the fireplaces that you actually need wood for. Gas fireplaces are cool, but they are just not as traditional for me, so I stick with the lumber. Either way, they are awesome!
Meet the Heat
That cool, or should I say warm, fireplace in there is going to stop at nothing to keep you and your lovely guests warm on a cold winter’s night. That’s’s the very reason of having a fireplace. You want to get warm and snuggle up next to it to be extra comfortable.
Fireplaces are hot, so if you have any decor around it, you are going to want to make sure they are not flammable and will not melt. Also, make sure nothing falls into the fireplace. Of course, it happens. It may or may not have happened to me. Sure think what you want.
Chill and Dim
Fireplaces are so great! You get to chill next to dim light. You can make it however bright or subtle you want it to be. It’s your patio so make the most of it. Whatever you love about fireplaces, make it happen. You are going to love chilling out next to the dim light.
You are just going to love those romantic evenings away from the kids. Finally, you and your partner get to relax in peace next to the dim light of the cozy fireplace. Maybe you can share each other’s socks or fall back and go to asleep. Just check on the kids and make sure they aren’t tearing up the house.
So, they Glow
Of course, fireplaces glow like crazy. You are just sitting outside and you spot the moon reflecting on the glowing light of the fireplace. It is truly gorgeous and you will find yourself falling in love with your wonderful new fireplace that even the moon can not compare to.
Fireplaces can even cause you to have an epiphany or give you some inspiration. It sure does spark my creativity. You are just sitting next to your cozy fireplace, and that makes you feel comfortable and think good thoughts. You may want to sing or write or dance. It’s your space.
Is it getting a little cold outside? Maybe it’s time for you to go turn that fireplace on and make it useful. Of course, they are pretty, but they also serve a purpose. They are just a pretty face. They can do so much more if you give them a chance. You are going to love it.
I absolutely love those winter months when I can just sit out when the snow is falling and not be a snowflake. Yes, it’s that cold. I actually turned into an actual snowflake once. True story. If I had turned my fireplace on, that wouldn’t have happened. Now, happy fireplacing!
