Outdoor lovers have many options when it comes to what type of heating accessories to add to their patio or garden to get a taste of nature without venturing beyond their home. Outdoor heaters are essential when it comes to creating a cosy ambience or heating up an outdoor space in the winter. Choose from fire pits, chimineas, or fire drums to create the perfect setting alongside comfortable outdoor furniture.
Fire pits come in all shapes, sizes, colours and materials, as well as permanent and in-ground or portable options. The range of materials includes cast iron, metal, stone or ceramic, and round, square or oval shapes. Some fire pits are also versatile and let you use it as a planter or a watering bowl. Finally, you can also purchase accessories, such as a grille, to capture the embers or a barbeque pit grill to roast some meat or vegetables.
A chiminea is another option to heat up your outdoor living space and create a more homey feel. Like fire pits, it comes in different styles and materials, such as clay, ceramic, cast iron or metal. Consider the amount of outdoor space you have to decide on an appropriate size. Accessories to consider are a grill for barbecuing, a cover to protect from the elements, and tiles to place down on your patio to protect it from the heat of the chiminea.
A versatile option, fire drums can be used to create camp fires as well as burn logs and even burn rubbish. It may either be cut longways or in half standing up, depending on how large you’d like your fire to be or what you’re planning on using it for. Alternatively, you can also purchase a fire drum cut out as a pot belly wood heater to be used more like a chiminea.
