Extending your kiwi summer with an outdoor fireplace

In New Zealand’s temperate climate, when summer hits we all like to spend as much time as we can lounging outside. But as the sun sets, sometimes it can get a tad chilly. An outdoor fireplace can extend your time outdoors and there’s something magical about gathering around a warm and flickering flame while watching the night sky.

Whether you have a sprawling backyard or a modest patio or balcony, the addition of an outdoor fireplace can extend your ability to create that indoor/outdoor flow.

The benefits of a gas outdoor fireplace are:

1. Ambience

The clean dancing flames create a warm and inviting atmosphere, making your outdoor living area the perfect place to unwind after a long day.

2. Extended outdoor living season

You can extend the usability of your outdoor space beyond the high summer season of January and February. Enjoy the crisp autumn air into April or even a chilly mid-July winter evening while staying warm by the fire.

3. Fireplaces love friends

Kiwis tend to gravitate towards an outdoor fireplace, and with many safe gas options on the market,  the outdoor fireplace can naturally become the focal point of any outdoor gathering for both adults and children.

4. Elevating your standard BBQ experience

Some outdoor fireplaces are equipped with grills or built-in gas fired pizza ovens, expanding your cooking options. At the very least you can toast marshmallows for a sweet and fun treat.

5. Convenience

Gas outdoor fireplaces offer instant ignition and adjustable flames at the touch of a button. They are easy to control and require less maintenance compared to their wood-burning counterparts. Also no smoke to annoy the neighbours or to blow in your face when the wind picks up.

An outdoor fireplace is not just a functional addition to your outdoor space; it’s an investment in creating lasting memories with family and friends. So, gather around the fire, share stories, and enjoy the beauty of your outdoor haven with the comforting glow of a well-designed outdoor fireplace, all at the click of a button with an instant gas flame.
