A great place to sit and relax is on your covered patio. It is a wonderful place to curl up and read a book, to have a nice dinner, or even sit and enjoy safe coverage during a booming thunderstorm. Often we have outdoor wicker furniture on our patios due to their durability and great looks. The only thing most people are missing is the enjoyment of having a portable electric fireplace on their patio. This allows for an already nice atmosphere to jump to a great and cozy atmosphere.
Covered patios have long been used only in the warm times of the year such as late spring, summer, and early fall. This is primarily due to a patio having walls of screens unlike a sun room which has actual insulated walls. Both rooms tend to have modern wicker furniture, often synthetic wicker furniture due to the ease in which we can maintain this type of furniture. Due to the heat that the portable electric fireplace emits, we can use the covered patio during the colder months and enjoy this room all year round. It is safe to have this fireplace in a covered room due to lack of smoke and it is safe to have around outdoor wicker furniture because there is no worry of sparks lighting the furniture or the furniture padding on fire.
In the cold winter months, often people get what is known as cabin fever. They are stuck in the house while the temperature drops and begin to greatly miss enjoying the outdoors. A portable electric fireplace allows us to use our patios during a larger portion of the year than just the summer. Also, the outdoor wicker furniture sits unused for half the year which seems a terrible waste of nice furniture. Now, we can enjoy the outdoors and our all weather wicker furniture in a warm and inviting way despite the actual weather. It will be possible to sit on your modern outdoor furniture and have a candlelit dinner by the light of the fireplace all year round instead of just having outdoor dinners during summer months.
By adding a portable electric fireplace to our furniture, we are in essence turning the outdoor patio into an all year room essentially making our houses bigger without any worry of new construction at all. The kids can sit in the living room with the television, but there will always be a cozy room with comfortable modern wicker furniture and warmth for you to go to read a good book even when it is cool outside.
