When it comes to creating a space you never want to leave- nothing exudes the feeling of warmth and coziness quite like sitting around a fire.
There’s something to be said about owning a space that illuminates and glows; nothing seems to be hurried or complicated when relaxing by the dancing flames. Whether you’re hosting a large gathering or something a little more intimate, fire bowls create a cozy atmosphere that feels natural and authentic. Here are some things to consider before adding marshmallows to your grocery list:
What are fire bowls?
Waterscapes Pools and Spas offers new fire features that are guaranteed to light up your entire yard. Fire bowls, an alternative to fire pits, are now available to help you achieve your ideal, beautiful, magical fire. Although fire pits and fire bowls serve the same purpose, they do have some notable differences. Fire pits are built in, usually with stone or brick. Fire bowls are lightweight, extremely durable, and offer more flexibility to your outdoor living area.
Expanding your entertainment and socializing space can be as simple as incorporating the warmth of real crackling flames to the center of your outdoor seating. This is a feature that whatever look or style you decide, you can be sure to get the most use out of it.
Choosing a type of fire bowl
While we do offer different options for fire-fuels, such as electronic ignition, gas ignition is our recommended choice, and here’s why:
- They don’t make a mess
Gas fueled fire bowls are simple and to the point. Once your fire bowls is hooked up to a gas or propane source, you can simply push the ignition and beautiful flames appear, instantly enhancing the magic of your outdoor space.
Owning a gas fueled fire bowl may be the most practical choice for Florida homeowners. There’s no need to worry about Florida’s unpredictable weather- gas ignitions are 100% weatherproof and prepared to take on any climate- rain or shine.
Not only does this type of ignition seem to reap many benefits, it’s also the safest option. Propane or natural gas allows you to regulate the size of the flames. In addition, our licensed gas contractors are ready to hook up your fire bowl to your gas connection and ensure that everything runs efficiently and safely.
- Fire-rated media
After you decide on the type of fire bowl you want, the next step is choosing a fire-rated media to fill your bowl. In contrast to decorative glass, fire-rated media is simply tempered glass that is manufactured specifically for the use of fire bowls and fire pits. The good news is they offer you the best of both worlds by aligning mandatory levels of fire safety with your unique stylistic goals. Our fire-rated media is available in shattered glass or lava rock glass.
- Shattered Glass
The most common requested from our buyers is the shattered glass, simply because of how stunning it looks in a fire bowl. Shattered glass is available in a variety of colors, shapes, and sizes to choose from. And if you’re having trouble choosing just one color, shattered glass blends beautifully together!
- Lava Rock Glass
A beautiful alternative to shattered glass is the lava rock glass. Available in various colors, shapes, and sizes; lava rock glass will deliver a radiant, down-to-earth fire place feature in the comfort of your own backyard. They can be used as cost-effective fillers to cover the base of bowl- which exudes a very natural looking flame. Consider lava rocks the ultimate mood enhancer as its bold accents and versatility excel at setting the tone for any evening.
