Outdoor living with the changing seasons
Outdoor living is In; Indoor Living is Out! As the seasons change, so do the trends, and the ongoing trend hitting homes all over the country is moving your indoor living room to the outside. One of the key elements to this brand new ‘outdoor living space,’ especially in the cooler months, is a campfire or fireplace. Now, in places like the midwest we may have to take a few months off from enjoying our favorite spot outdoors while the snow settles, but we can still dream about that perfect space outdoors that will great us when the seasons change again! For people in warmer regions, they are hitting the time of year when days are a moderate temperature with cooler evenings – perfect weather for cozying up around a campfire. Think about it…what could be better than spending your evenings under the stars, talking with friends and family while sitting around the glow of a campfire? Especially one that gives off plenty of heat and runs for many hours without having to chop wood (runs on natural gas or propane) so you can relax outdoors, without the distractions that may come from being inside (i.e. the television). Living in the Midwest, we don’t get a lot of opportunities to enjoy the nights outdoors (in the summer there are always bugs buzzing in our ears or humidity that makes it too uncomfortable to be outside, and in the winter it’s just plain cold), so once the cool fall or spring night hit, it’s the perfect time to be outside and enjoy the weather! In warmer areas, that time is now… So turn off the TV, head outside, turn on the campfire, and take part in the newest fall trend to hit homes all over the place; Outdoor Living!
