Irrespective of the available space, you can always incorporate a fireplace in your outdoors. This instantly gives the space a lovely and animated focus point. Addition of a fire-pit or a full-fledged fireplace with a glass enclosure also allows you to enjoy the chilly nights under a star-lit sky with comfort.
