Fireplaces are a popular feature in any home. Whether you enjoy them for the warmth they provide or the style and focal point, even in the warmest of climates, people still like fireplaces! Adding outdoor fireplaces to a property is a great bonus feature that many people enjoy, since it can add design, style and function to your outdoors, as well as your indoors. If you are considering outdoor fireplaces for your property, we have these four factors to consider when you are in the planning stages:
- Budget– For the majority of us, we need to stick to a budget when it comes to adding anything to our home, including outdoor fireplaces. Determining what your budget will be before you begin can help give you a landing place before you go shopping for features. Additionally, a budget will ensure your outdoor fireplace is a fun feature instead of a reminder of too much expense.
- Size- Small yards can feel overwhelmed by large outdoor fireplaces and large yards can overwhelm small outdoor fireplaces! Decide on a good size for your outdoor fireplace before moving forward with planning.
- Purpose- Are you building an outdoor fireplace to act as a second source of heat for things like pizza making or slow-cooking? Do you want it for a conversation piece on chilly nights? Your purpose for your outdoor fireplace will determine your size, shape, and also fuel source (gas or wood).
- Style- Working with a professional designer can help ensure that your outdoor fireplace looks great with your existing features and exterior design.
