The American Institute of Architects (AIA) Home Design Trends survey reported in 2014 that creating a 'useful and versatile' outdoor living space was a high priority for American homeowners, and the rest of the world is right behind them.
An outdoor fire adornment is a funky feature that will boost the resale value of a home and will also encourage togetherness. As an additional, unique entertaining area that can be changed to suit each season, outdoor fires let homeowners enjoy the outdoors even in the colder months. The cost depends only on the type and style of the desired fireplace: gas or wood, inbuilt or freestanding, custom made or pre-fab.
An example is the the Escea EF5000 outdoor gas fireplace, a contemporary styled fire with push-of-the-button operation and Zero Clearance rating. This fire is an ideal option for adding an interesting touch to outdoor living design's, with simplistic and straight-forward installation and operation.
With the EF5000, users can achieve uninterrupted views, a perfect flame setting instantly and will save time by installing the fireplace straight into a timber-framed structure. The Escea EF5000 doesn’t need to be flued and for homes without a ready-built structure, a ready-to-build steel frame can be purchased for the fireplace making installation extremely simple.
