Combining garden heating with Mediterranean style, chimineas are perfect for stretching out long summer evenings well into the night, or warming up a corner of a winter garden. From cast iron and clay chimineas to contemporary steel and mexican-inspired designs, we've got the garden chiminea for you here at Primrose.
Chimineas are essentially outdoor fireplaces. They have a large, round bowl where the fuel is burned and a narrower chimney on top which usually has a removable lid. You can use them to provide heat while you are outside, whether in a garden or patio area or any other outdoor space.
Why choose a chiminea for your garden?
There is a wide range of outdoor heating available, from patio heaters to fire pits, so why choose a chiminea? Not only do they provide heat, they also make a stylish garden feature in their own right and an attractive focal point.
You can use your chiminea all year through. While many people enjoy them on balmy summer evenings or after a barbecue, an outdoor chiminea will help you to make the most of your garden during autumn and winter too.
Many of our chimineas for sale also have the added function of a barbecue grill, so you can impress friends and family with freshly cooked culinary delights!
Metal vs. clay chimineas: which is better?
We supply both metal chimineas in cast iron and steel, as well as clay chimineas. If you are unsure which material is best for you, here are a few things to consider:
Clay is a long-established material for chimineas so if you prefer a traditional, rustic style, similar to the style of the original Mexican chimineas, clay is best for you. Steel or cast iron chimineas have a much more modern, contemporary look.
Colour & pattern
In keeping with their modern style, metal chimineas often tend to be monochrome (usually black, bronze and other similar colours) and without pattern. Clay chimineas on the other hand come in a range of colours from terracotta to bright blue and frequently display a pattern or design.
If you are looking for a chiminea that you can use for cooking, a steel or cast iron chiminea is best for you; most of these are supplied with a grill, whilst very few clay chimineas are.
If you have any queries or need further information about any of the chimineas we supply, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
We stock all the accessories you need to look after and get the most out of your garden chiminea. Our weatherproof covers will protect your chiminea from rain and cold and are available in three sizes so you can find the perfect fit!
Many chimineas are supplied with a handy grill for cooking food, but to make it even easier for you, we also supply a range of cooking utensils ideal for use with a chiminea, from pizza stones and toastie makers to roasting pans for chestnuts. Why not grab yourself a sturdy steel toasting fork and relax with some delicious marshmallows toasting over the chiminea fire?
And of course, how can you enjoy all of this without a good supply of chiminea fuel? We offer a range of fuels and heat logs which will keep your fire going for several hours and are completely environmentally friendly.
