It seems wrong to talk about fireplaces on this beauty of a day, but we all know summer evenings can get positively chilly once the sun disappears. Lately I’ve been enjoying outdoor fireplace vibes – it’s like they’re just beckoning for you to pull up an armchair and luxuriate in good conversation (and wine) with friends.
For my residential clients it seems an outdoor fireplace is a new must have on the wish lists. From a practical point of view I prefer the inbuilt option. They are more space efficient, and with small kids running around a safer option. I also love using the wood storage as a visible part of the design.
I absolutely adore an open fire pit that everyone can gather around, but you need enough space to be able to accommodate this and isn’t suitable for all settings.
