Warm Up Your Outdoor Winter Space
Does your patio become desolate during the winter? Spring, summer and fall can find your backyard and patio filled with friends and family, but in winter, everyone stays indoors. If you live in an area with mild winters, you can make your outdoor living space open for all seasons. Add a new fireplace to warm up your outdoor area for year-round enjoyment.
One of the popular trends for patios is a full fireplace, similar to what you would have in a living room. A flagstone or fieldstone fireplace can create a gorgeous addition to your outdoor space while providing a cozy area to enjoy during the cooler months. You can have a one-sided or two-sided fireplace, depending on where it is located and the size of your patio. A full fireplace tends to become a focal feature and you are bound to receive many compliments on your new patio addition.
Want a smaller-sized fire feature? Fire pits are easier to fit on smaller patios and can be installed almost anywhere. They are cozy for gathering a few friends around on a cool night or even on a crisp winter day. A fire pit can be rustic with a “camp-like” quality with natural stone or you can have your designer create a more modern or contemporary design with cement or metal. Either option give you a warm place to huddle around while adding flickering light to your patio area.
Don’t spend another winter ignoring your patio and hiding indoors. Talk to your local hardscape landscaper to discuss the options for adding a fireplace or fire pit to your outdoor winter space.
