Australia is a country with amazing wildlife and landscapes. With such a beautiful outdoor environment, many of us love to spend as much time as we possibly can in an outdoors setting, but what happens when the weather is bad, or when we can’t venture into the bush? When this happens, you can always bring a little of that outdoor magic inside your home with a wood burning fireplace.
Many social outdoor activities are structured around fires. When we barbeque, we do it on fire; we build a fire on the beach to ward off the chills as the sun sets; and many of us have spent countless hours around various campfires chatting with people, eating great food and enjoying life.
Many modern homeowners are implementing the new ‘transterior’ trend, where you blend life outdoors with life indoors, and vice-versa. With the prices of residential properties increasing daily, renovating your existing home is a more affordable option than buying a new one. Not only can this trend enhance your living space, but some experts even estimate that it can add up to 20 percent to your property’s existing value, especially with us Aussies placing such a high premium on both indoor and outdoor entertainment.
Many homeowners who integrate the ‘transterior’ trend into their properties aim to create an outdoor entertainment area, such as accompanying a swimming pool with a seating area, complete with a sheltered barbequing spot.
To bring the outdoors in, we suggest installing an open wood burning fireplace in your living area. This is a great way to bring the feeling of an outdoor fire inside your home, without any of the mess and fuss associated with it. You get to enjoy the sight of flames dancing over the wood, while hearing the snap and crackle of the fire and indulging in the trademark smell of an old-fashioned fireplace.
