We’re at the awkward time in the season where summer is tempting and teasing us, but it’s not officially warm enough to abandon the windbreakers and put away the cardigans quite yet. With Memorial Day coming up and the 4th of July following soon after, it’s time to start preparing your patio or outdoor space for entertaining. But how do you keep guests warm? Extend your evenings with one of these 3 popular heating solutions so you can waste away the night over a margarita and good stories without shivering or grabbing the parkas.
Outdoor Patio Heaters
Outdoor patio heaters like you may find in a restaurant or bar are not just for commercial spaces anymore. Both electric and propane models are available for individual residences in a range of budgets and require little to no assembly. Available in a variety of styles – freestanding or mounted – there’s a model to match any type of patio furniture, whatever your aesthetic.
Fire Pits and Fire Bowls
As much for décor as warmth, outdoor fire pits and fire bowls fueled by gas or propane are one of the fastest growing segments in outdoor landscaping design. Typically crafted from cast iron, copper, stainless steel, aluminum or ceramic, fire pits and fire bowls can be small and flexible enough to fit on a tabletop as a decorative centerpiece or as large as a cocktail table itself.
Create a campfire feel in your backyard with your very own fire ring. The perfect gathering place, fire rings draw people in like moths to a flame and are designed to keeping you warm on even the coolest nights. 100% weather resistant, they’re available in both natural gas and liquid propane models.
