Fall is here, and for many families, that means a retreat into the house and leaving the yard behind until warm weather returns next spring. With an outdoor fireplace, you can change all that by making your yard a spot for outdoor entertaining and family gatherings right up until the snow begins to fall.
An outdoor fireplace lets you create the same cozy, welcoming space as an indoor fireplace, but it has the added advantage of allowing you to enjoy the beauty of your yard. And while an outdoor fireplace is especially welcome in the cool months for the warmth it provides, it also serves as a focal point for your yard in all seasons by offering the ideal spot to create an outdoor room. With seating clustered around an outdoor fireplace or firepit, you bring comfortable living space outside and make your yard a fun place to gather. You effectively add a whole new room at a small fraction of the price!
In the autumn, the warmth of a fire makes your yard comfortable for family meals, games, and just hanging out with friends. Add some hot dogs or marshmallows and your fireplace could serve double duty by providing an opportunity for impromptu outdoor snacking without having to lug out the heavy grill.
Just like an indoor fireplace, outdoor fireplaces come in a variety of styles and finishes. You can match your fireplace to your home’s style and architecture, using it to enhance and underscore your home’s appeal. And, just like an indoor unit, you can choose the fuel type that’s right for you: wood, natural gas, and propane styles are all available. What’s more, an outdoor fireplace is a smart investment in your home’s value. Studies show that when it comes time for resale, an outdoor fireplace is an attractive feature to buyers of all ages, making your home appear more spacious, versatile, and attractive.
