3 Outdoor Fire Elements to Warm up Your Winter

3 Outdoor Fire Elements to Warm up Your Winter

Dec 22 2017

Do you have a gorgeous area right outside your house in the front or backyard where you enjoy spending time with loved ones all year long? Well, then there is no reason for you to hide out inside at any point during the year, even winter. Sure, there will be some days where it’s far too cold to sit or stand around outside without any added heat. But with a small upgrade to include a fire element, you can create a lovely area where you can stay warm while enjoying the fresh winter air and enjoy your home’s beautiful exterior. Here are three fire elements that will complete this warmth transformation.

Fire Bowls

Fire bowls are great for many reasons. They come in a wide variety of styles and colors, require little to no maintenance, and always look beautiful. If you have ever been to someone’s house and noticed that they had a fire bowl, you were probably very impressed. It just gives off such a regal and elegant look, especially when its complimented with a well-designed paver patio. A fire bowl also serves as the perfect focal point for guests to gather around in chairs and enjoy quality conversations.

Fire Pits

Using a fire pit is a similar concept to a fire bowl, except that a fire pit can be completely customized from the ground up. Some fire pits are circular in shape, while others may be rectangular or even L-shaped. Some shapes are more abstract, it really all depends on what type of look you prefer. Once you work with a design consultant to choose your fire pit style and get it installed, it’s time to put it to good use. Invite friends over for a backyard smores and movie night and gather around the fire pit. Or, instead of heading to the park for a winter play day, turn up the fire pit and let the kids play in the backyard.


Fireplace is suitable for both indoor and outdoor living. If you’re thinking about a way to keep warm while enjoying your front or backyard area, including a paver fireplace is a great idea. A custom paver fireplace adds a more personal touch to your exterior design, as these structures are fully built into the hardscape and often serve as the centerpiece in which an entire project is designed around.

It’s also generally recommended to have a fireplace in outdoor living areas that offer plenty of space. For instance, if you have a smaller area where you’d primarily like to hang out and enjoy outdoor activities or sports in, you may want to reconsider a larger fireplace and opt for a fire pit instead. But if you have a rather large backyard or outdoor living area, then a fireplace will act as a stunning focal point and add plenty of warmth for year-round enjoyment.

The installation of a fire element in your outdoor living space will completely transform how you feel about spending time outdoors during the cooler months!
