Ever wish you could have a roaring fire to gather around with friends and family on your back patio? Outdoor fireplaces are becoming a popular addition to patios and other exterior entertaining spots. A beautiful fireplace can open up your outdoor living space for year round entertaining, and romantic evenings by the fire.
Outdoor Fireplace Options
The great thing about adding a fireplace outdoors is that there are many more options than adding an indoor fireplace. It can be easily placed wherever you want it, going as large or small as you prefer. One of the fun options is choosing the materials to create your new fireplace. Some of the options include:
- River rock. For a rustic, natural look, use river rock to create a cozy fireplace that’s perfect for a backyard fire.
- Brick. For a classic fireplace, choose uniform brick to build an ideal mantel for your outdoor patio fireplace.
- Natural stone. There are several natural stone options which can create beautiful fireplaces for your home. Field stone, flag stone, travertine and many other stones can add an earthy touch to your patio décor.
With your new fireplace, you may want to add a paver patio to surround the fire pit area. This will provide an even, fireproof floor to place your patio furniture. Match the pavers to the fireplace to pull the entire outdoor living area together.
Don’t shut yourself inside during the winter months. Add a new outdoor fireplace so you can expand your living area to the outside, enjoying the fresh air and outdoors all year round. Talk to your local hardscape landscaper about adding a new outdoor fireplace for the New Year.
