Buying a chiminea? If you have already bought one in the past and just buying a new one to replace the damaged or old chiminea, you will have a fairly good idea of what to look for. However if you are a first time buyer, and not sure what you should look for while buying your very first patio or yard chiminea, just read on!
A chiminea doesn’t just provide warmth but also add to the aesthetic look of your garden.
There are a lot of things you need to consider while buying a chiminea for your garden, the first being the size. Chimineas are available in various sizes and shapes, and if you have a large garden, opt for an extra large focal point to brighten up the ambience.
Choose a steel model if you wish to move it around, as cast iron chimineas tend to be heavy. Steel chimineas also do not tend to rust, and come in a number of artistic designs. If you want a grilling option you may choose from the many cast iron models that allow you to grill a quick burger on a chilly night. Did you know that you can also use your chiminea to dispose of small waste like newspaper?
