The weather has finally turned cooler here in Central SC and that means two things; sweater weather and outdoor fireplace weather! As it turns out, both have a lot in common when it comes to their cozy benefits. Outdoor fireplaces and fire pits are now considered the “must have” accompaniment to any outdoor living space combination. Outdoor fire features such as fireplaces and fire pits make the perfect partner to a backyard patio or porch, and outdoor fireplaces are often used to add style and ambiance to a screened porch or 4-season room. You may be asking “what is all the hub-bub about ?” If you have ever had the chance to sit in front of an outdoor fireplace on a crisp autumn evening with friends and family–you already know the coziness of its warmth, the crackle of the fire, and the intoxication of watching the flames as they dance– nothing comes close to the experience. As if that isn’t enough. Lets explore the many benefits of outdoor fire features and how their allure is destined to draw you into their magic like a moth to a flame!
- Extended entertaining options – There is no better way to gather a group of friends and family together than around an outdoor fireplace or fire pit. Outdoor fire features are a great way to extend your party space to the outdoors. An outdoor fire feature exudes ambiance that makes the addition of one to your backyard worth the investment. Can you imagine star gazing with a loved one or enjoying a glass of wine with friends while sitting around one of nature’s most captivating elements?
The yummy factor – An outdoor fire pit or fireplace can provide an opportunity to cook up some delicious snacks. Although not as elaborate as a grill or outdoor kitchen, fire pits and outdoor fireplaces do provide a flame over which you can toast marshmallows, S’mores, hot dogs or even kabobs.
- Warm and cozy – Obviously, fire pits and fireplaces emit warmth. The benefit to the warmth they produce is that you can extend your spring and outdoor entertaining seasons a bit by staying warm on those chilly evenings. No more retreats to the house when the sun goes down either– pull up a chair or two, kick back and enjoy the feel of the fire. It is sure to enliven your mood!
An investment worth investing in – fire pits and fireplaces are a nice addition to your home that can add value if you ever decide to sell it. They are attractive features that can add character and uniqueness and can really help make your home stand apart from others. To gain the most benefit from your fire feature, you want to choose a design that fits in scale with the size of your yard and your home. If there is stone or stucco on your home, you may consider incorporating these to complement the surroundings. You can also bring in architectural elements into the shape of your chimney or mantle. The key to getting the most out of your addition is to have the feature blend and become a natural looking part of your outdoor living area.
