An outdoor room can provide homeowners with a means to "get away" while still in the comfort of their homes, and outdoor fireplaces increase that comfort factor.
In turn, many fireplace companies, including Lennox Hearth Products, have broadened outdoor fireplace choices to accommodate outdoor room designs that tend to shift from region to region.
Homeowners in the Eastern, Midwest and Northern regions of the U.S. must contend with seasonal changes and are generally unable to use outdoor living spaces year-round. Some, however, battle the elements with covered decks, patios or screened porches.
Because of milder weather, West Coast and Southern homeowners lean towards the use of open courtyards or balconies.
Today, more and more builders are designing transitional spaces fusing inside with outside, allowing for year-round activity and increased flexibility with furnishings, lighting and finishes. Outdoor fireplaces are particularly welcome in cooler climates because they prolong the time a homeowner can use their outdoor rooms. There is also high demand in warmer climates where fall and winter evenings can be chilly, because outdoor fireplaces allow homeowners to stay outside longer.
