What About An Outdoor Cast Iron Fireplace?
If you have space outside and are keen to really transform your garden into something luxurious and magical, then there’s no better touch than an outdoor reclaimed fireplace, wouldn’t you agree?
These make a truly beautiful outdoor focus and if done properly could add serious value to your home. Of course, you will need to make sure you have a big enough garden or you could have something of a problem with smoke if the fireplace is too near the house, so bear this in mind if it’s something you’re interested in.
There are all sorts of different styles you could go for, but make sure you sit down and decide what you want your outdoor fireplace to look like before you spend any money. You could go for a stucco finish on the surround in order to bring in some textural interest, or perhaps go for a herringbone pattern with some brick. You could consider using this pattern on your kitchen tiles inside as well to tie your indoor and outdoor spaces in together.
What we love about the outdoor fireplace idea is that you can create the illusion of a living room outside if you pick your garden seating wisely. Just because its outside doesn’t mean it can’t be luxurious – but do go for weather-resistant fabric and cover everything when not in use.
You could even use a living room rug to tie your seating area together (although you’ll most likely have to bring this in at the end of each day since the British weather is somewhat tempestuous).
