Outdoor Fireplaces- A Perfect Winter Add On

Published Date: Nov 22, 2017

As winter quickly approaches, some families are left feeling as though their time outdoors is running out. Just because the chilly winter weather is moving in and it’s getting darker earlier doesn’t mean that homeowners and their families will be left gazing out of windows from the interior of their homes. 

In fact, late fall is the perfect time to make one outdoor addition that will not only provide benefit throughout the winter but also in the summer: An outdoor fireplace.

Live More Outdoors

With a custom outdoor fireplace, homeowners will be able to add beauty to their outdoor living space while extending their time outside

Including a paver fireplace in your outdoor living space will easily extend time spent outside and will alleviate the feeling of being trapped indoors during the colder days and nights. An outdoor fireplace also allows greater freedom to stay warm outdoors and enjoy more time bonding with family by the fire.

Many homeowners take pride in their yard, seeing it as more of an extension of their overall living space rather than a separate area. Installing an outdoor fireplace brings this view into action by really bringing the indoors out.

Outdoor Family Activities

Another important aspect of creating an area that will extend the time you get to spend outside is the opportunity to increase the activities you do as a family. It may not be the ideal time of year to hit the campgrounds, but some of the most special parts of camping can be experienced right in your own backyard. Sharing stories around the campfire is a tradition that parents, kids, grandkids and friends alike will remember for a lifetime. 

Just imagine the family curled up in front of the roaring outdoor fireplace on comfy outdoor furniture telling stories about a long-forgotten myth or spooky local legend.

If a weekly tradition is what your family is after, start taking game night to the outdoor fireplace. Set up the patio furniture and outdoor coffee table near the fireplace and round up the troops for an evening of good old fashion fun. With an outdoor entertainment center, families can also choose to have movie nights outdoors by the warmth of the fire. 

The outdoor fireplace is more than just a place for the family to hang in. It also serves as an intimate setting to share alone time with your spouse. Enjoy coffee in front of the fireplace while the sun rises or a glass of wine after you put the kids to bed in the evening.

Another stand-out reason to have a beautiful outdoor fireplace installed is the lasting beauty of your yard. It will increase the value of your home while creating a central focal point. Everything else can radiate outward from this point, ensuring centrality, function, and beauty.
