Let’s face it; last year presented itself with challenges unlike any others in the past. With Americans spending more time than ever at home, it’s no surprise that many families are taking a closer look at their living space and investing in their homes instead of taking vacations or other expensive excursions. Home improvements have a great return on investment, yet when most people think about home projects, they most likely think of their kitchen and the bathroom as the first areas to work on. However, your outdoor space needs just as much attention. 

Spending time outdoors in your backyard helps the whole family unplug, can help relieve stress, and creates bonds. Creating an outdoor fireplace is just one way to add charm, fun, and warmth to your outdoor space, not to mention it extends the seasons you can enjoy your new area! Here are some more benefits to consider.

Perfect for Entertaining 


Having an outdoor fireplace installed will not only extend your entertaining season, but you’ll be the envy of your neighborhood. Whether you’re entertaining a larger group or want to toast to make s’mores as a family, an outdoor fireplace structure is easy to maintain. A well-designed fireplace will keep the embers inside, reducing messes, and preventing embers from burning your outdoor furniture, pets, or children. 

Adds Definition 


A fireplace can be the focal point of your outdoor patio space, adding definition and a designated area to gather. The possibilities are endless for your design, including your furniture, lighting, and other features to compliment your fireplace. 

Return on Investment


Installing an outdoor fireplace is not only inviting and functional but a great investment and appealing prospect for many homeowners. 

Provides Outdoor Cooking Possibilities 


A fireplace provides so much more possibilities than just s’mores (although that is fun!). Imagine popping your popcorn with friends, making a pizza, or cooking hotdogs over the open fire. A fireplace is not only a functional addition but can provide fun for your whole family! 

Your living space doesn’t stop at your back door. A patio or backyard can truly become an addition to your home. An outdoor fireplace will not only increase the visual appeal of your outdoor space but are great if you like to entertain your family and friends.
