Reclaim your backyard this winter by installing an outdoor fireplace on your patio. Outdoor fireplaces are growing in popularity for a number of reasons. Installing one increases the value of your home, allows for year-round use, provides an attractive source of heat and light, and some units are even designed to function as a barbecue too!
With the overwhelming number of outdoor fireplace designs and finishes to choose from, how do you decide which one will suit your property?
Well, when you want to install an outdoor fireplace, there are a few important factors to consider, and these will guide your choice of unit.
The top considerations include:
- The location and layout of the space in which the fireplace is to be installed.
- Any local area regulations that may apply.
- The fireplace features and functions you want.
- Installation costs.
- Size, materials and construction.
A general rule of thumb is do not place a wood burning unit or any fireplace outdoors where you would be uncomfortable placing a TV.
Here are four of Jetmaster’s most popular outdoor fireplaces to consider.
For Australians who love entertaining, the gas-fuelled Horizon Outdoor Patio Fireplace is a great choice. The innovative design offers a trendy aesthetic that seamlessly brings the indoors and outdoors together. The unit includes a flick switch for quick and easy operation and a design that doesn’t require a flue installation, which means big savings for you.
The Universal outdoor wood fire takes outdoor entertaining to a whole new level. The firebox, which is constructed from durable mild steel, offers radiant convected heat and features a log pan for minimal cleaning. The unit will add a rustic vibe to your outdoor space.
For outdoor entertainers who want to create their own fireplace design, gas fire pits are ideal because they’re easily customised. These popular units can easily be adapted to suit the size and scope of any backyard and come in a range of finishes.
Can’t choose between a BBQ or fireplace. Who says you can’t have both? This is an ideal option for entertainers looking for a fireplace unit that doubles as barbecue and wood fire. Jetmaster’s outdoor barbeque is economical, safe to operate and offer a design with an integrated sliding door for ease of use.
