But let’s face it, a pool can only be used in the summer. Flare Fires can be used year-round. 


2: Focal Point to Tie Together Patio

Flare Fires work tremendously well at tying together a patio or outdoor living space. Like how the fireplace is often the focal point inside the home, a Flare Fire acts much the same way providing a natural gathering point.

If you are like most people we meet, your patio is functional but at the bare minimum. Upgrade your patio and upgrade your life by adding the following 5 key elements for the ultimate outdoor living space.

2. Comfortable Seating

This can make or break your outdoor room. Big comfortable lounge chairs make the patio an inviting place to sit, relax, and have a drink during the warm summer evenings. Do away with the cheap plastic furniture on your patio. The best patio’s these days have large executive style armchairs with oversized cushions for hours of enjoyable comfort. Adding comfort doesn’t have to cost a fortune either. There are lots of styles to choose from to match your ideal outdoor room.

3. Outdoor Kitchen

Tired of running in and out while your guests relax on the patio? Don’t want the house warmer than it needs to be from using the oven in the summer? Every great patio needs a Flare Fire.
