We love warming ourselves over an open fire. However, it’s best to use an outdoor fireplace to build your fire in than to just set a fire in your garden.
After all, if things go wrong – you don’t want to end up like this rapper, immortalized in fire, do you?
Would you believe there are more than 350,000 house fires a year in the US too?
So, play it safe and find yourself an outdoor fireplace kit which lets you build a fire in a stylish and attractive fashion.
In fact, why not grab one from our 10 best outdoor fireplace kits. There’s something here for every style and budget.
