Is an Outdoor Fireplace Just What My Yard Is Missing?
By Botanical Decorators November 18, 2015
The chilly months of fall are here, and with winter not far behind, you may find yourself wishing you had already added that outdoor fireplace or fire pit you’ve always wanted. Well, it’s not too late to put one in before the winter cold sets in! Plus, adding an outdoor fireplace now will ensure that your yard is ready for the brisk months of early spring. By then, you’ll be itching to get back outside after being trapped indoors by snow for months.
If you’re still trying to decide if a fireplace or fire pit is the addition you really want for your outdoor space, see if the benefits below are what you’re aiming for.
Benefits of Adding an Outdoor Fireplace or Fire Pit
Create a focal point for your outside space. Does your yard feel a little bare or drab, especially compared to the rest of your home? A fireplace or fire pit can provide a beautiful focal point for your space, allowing you to build your own oasis around it.
Build a space for entertaining and relaxing. One of the best things about an outdoor fireplace is that it gives you the best of both worlds: a place to gather friends and family, or a place to go when you need a moment of peace. If you wish you had another area for hosting guests, adding a fireplace or fire pit to your backyard will provide just that! At the same time, you’re giving yourself the gift of a lovely hideaway right in your own backyard.
Add value to your home. When we consider a home addition that we want to enjoy for ourselves, we don’t always think about the value we’re adding to our home for the future. Yet, an article in Turf Design Build from earlier this year reported that an update to your landscape design can add up to 14 percent to the monetary value of your home. It also shares that for every dollar a homeowner invests in their outdoor living space, they can expect 60 cents to two dollars back. While you may not want the resale value of your home to be the main focus of your yard improvement, you can’t ignore a stat like that! At least keep the information in mind as you think about adding an outdoor fireplace.
