There’s no question that 2020 will be one for the record books. With the outbreak of COVID-19 and restrictions associated with the worldwide pandemic, we have never spent so much time at home, with only a very close circle for company. As restrictions ease and our social circles expand, we will still be spending more time at home than normal. It’s going to be a big summer for outdoor entertaining, as we do our best to enjoy the season in our own backyards.  That means we will turn our focus from fixing up our indoor spaces, to attending to our outdoor spaces. We believe that any outdoor space can benefit from the addition of a fireplace. Here are 5 reasons why you need to add an outdoor electric fireplace to your backyard in 2020.

Why you need to add an outdoor electric fireplace to your backyard if you have a pool

If you’re lucky enough to have a backyard pool, adding an outdoor electric fireplace nearby will create a focal point, and a spot for parents to gather while supervising the kids.  Electric fireplaces have heaters; turn on the heat to dry off after an evening swim, or leave the heater off and just enjoy the flames. They are perfect for the pool house, because they take up less space than other fireplaces, so they won’t overcrowd a small room.
