| You can already see it in front of you: long evenings on the patio, enjoying a nice conversation and a good glass of wine. That dream is no longer limited to the summertime because with an outdoor fireplace on your covered patio you can enjoy your garden all year round. Curious about what you should take into account when choosing an outdoor fireplace? We’ll give you 3 tips!

1. Opt for a closed outdoor gas fireplace

Do you live in a new residential area or does your garden directly adjoin that of your neighbours? Then a closed outdoor gas fireplace is a smart choice. A wood stove on your covered patio can cause smoke nuisance for your neighbours. Fortunately, with a closed gas fireplace you are always safe! And more importantly: it is easy to operate and provides just as much warmth and cosiness as a wood-burning stove. Did you know that you can also connect your gas fireplace to propane gas? This way you can always use a closed gas fireplace, even if your home does not have natural gas. With the help of a smart connection, you can connect several gas bottles together so that you always have enough gas.

2. Choose an outdoor fireplace built-in model

Outdoor fireplaces come in many shapes and sizes: built-in wood fireplaces, freestanding garden fireplaces made of cast iron or steel, and combination fireplaces with barbecue or fire pit function. The disadvantage of these types of fireplaces? They are often difficult to combine with your patio roof and are preferably used in the 'open air'. Moreover, you often have to deal with the aforementioned problem of smoke nuisance. Wouldn’t you rather have the fireplace form part of the patio and cause as little nuisance as possible? Then choose a built-in model from Element4. From a design point of view, this is always the best choice because in this way the outdoor fireplace is beautifully incorporated into the rest of your patio.

3. Combine an indoor and outdoor fireplace

Is your covered patio directly adjacent to the house? Then you have the opportunity to enjoy your fireplace not only outside but also inside. There are various fireplaces that you can use as a combination fireplace; although in practice we mainly see the SKY LARGE TUNNEL-T in people's homes. This stylish gas fireplace has a considerable height and therefore offers a beautiful view from the house into the garden and patio. It’s an architectural masterpiece that will certainly upgrade your home!
