First Things First: Selecting a Location
Outdoor fireplaces pack a big punch in terms of landscape design, when integrated correctly, providing a beautiful focal point for your outdoor living area – however proper location is key. Local ordinances aside, your key to ideally locating your fireplace should be related to guest comfort and how your fireplace will be used, whether as a gathering spot for comfort and conversation, as part of an outdoor dining area, or a cozy, serene retreat. Don’t forget to consider how your new fireplace addition will impact your view from indoors – or provide necessary privacy for your home and yard.
Decking Things Out: Décor
Incorporate design features into your deck accoutrements that bring indoor style to your outdoor living space, but that work in harmony with foliage and architecture. Consider making your fireplace a multi-functional hub for entertainment with the addition of a built-in grill or bar, lush, comfortable outdoor furniture you can kick-back and relax in, tables for convenient access to drinks and media, and built-in storage for firewood and other outdoor entertaining necessities. Ensure ease-of-use any time of the day and no matter the weather with a deck roof or pergola addition and lighting.
Fireplace Types: Which is Right for Me?
Wood burning fireplaces are still quite popular for outdoor living spaces for those that love the authentic smell, crackling sounds, and necessary interaction with the fire-making process. However natural gas and propane models are gaining in popularity as well for ease-of-use, efficiency, and environmental friendliness, though these models will require the addition of a tank or running a connection to your municipality’s gas services. For home’s with no interior fireplace, double-sided or see-through indoor/outdoor models also offer added opportunity for flexibility of use.
