The winter season brings chilling winds that prevent many of us to enjoy the outdoors. But why should the comfort and beauty of luxury fireplaces stay primarily indoors when you can have it outdoors as well?
One of the current trends in luxury living nowadays is a fireplace that bridges the divide between outdoor luxury and indoor cosiness. In fact, it is considered an architectural marvel in interior design—an indoor/outdoor fireplace.
Although they’re a bit more expensive to acquire and slightly complex to install, you’ll find out the top reasons why the expense and effort you will put in acquiring such unit are well worth all that.
Indoor Comfort in the Outdoors
Interior designers are rushing to keep up with the ever-changing and rising standards for outdoor living. What once was the popular fire pit is now replaced with luxurious, showstopper spaces, ideal for both small and large gatherings.
Homeowners have outgrown ad hoc patios and makeshift backyards, with propane grills and a few lawn chairs thrown in the mix. They want more, something that they can relax to after a long day of work or somewhere they can entertain guests or neighbours.
This led to manufacturers and business owners becoming more innovative in design and approach in order to retain and attract consumers. Now, business owners and manufacturers are offering both style and comfort of the interior be brought into the open.
Taking comfort to a new level, these manufacturers have found a way to connect the exterior with the interior using only a single fireplace. Yes, just one fireplace for your patio and for your indoor space.
Indoor/outdoor luxury fireplaces not only provide warmth and comfort to both sides of the architectural and structural divide but also adds visual splendour to your home.
Unifying Two Spaces
With indoor/outdoor fireplaces, a seamless transition between the outdoor patio and the indoor space can be created. Not only do these fireplaces help bridge the divide but also still keep all the benefits of the discreteness of both spaces.
Additionally, they help create a solid harmony for open, flowing spaces.
Beauty Inside and Outside
Perhaps the most obvious advantage of indoor/outdoor fireplaces is their aesthetic appeal. There are limitless design possibilities, allowing you plenty of room to channel your creativity and personalisation.
Use existing indoor or outdoor fireplace designs you can find, which you can mix and match as you wish. If you prefer a consistent look, then use the same materials for both interior and the exterior.
Meanwhile, if you prefer contrast, opt for more durable and stronger elements such as brick, stucco, stone, and concrete for the outdoor while porcelain, marble, and terracotta could be used inside.
Drive the Chill Away
Indoor/outdoor fireplaces are fully functional, other than helping create a smooth, seamless flow for your home. In fact, they can help extend the life of your patio well past the summer months.
Homeowners consider this as a matter of comfort, while bar, restaurant, and coffee shop owners consider this as the life and death of their respective businesses.
Besides, it’s too much a waste to leave prized real estate idle for months, during the cold season, when you can make the place cozy with the help of indoor/outdoor luxury fireplaces.
