  • Post category:Blog

Adding custom elements that extend outdoor living is a popular trend right now as more people are desiring to spend less time indoors and spend more time outdoors. There are many ways you can extend your outdoor living space. One way is to add a custom fire pit or fireplace to your yard. A custom fire feature creates a gathering point for guests, extends the amount of time you can enjoy the outdoors, and provides ample entertainment opportunities.

Here are some ways fire pits and fireplaces extend your outdoor living in Morehead City, Newport, Atlantic Beach, and the surrounding areas.

A Fire Pit or Fireplace Creates a Focal Point and Enhances the Outdoor Environment

These days, more homeowners are trying new ways to extend their time outdoors and spend less time indoors. Adding a fire pit or fireplace to your home helps achieve this by drawing people outside to enjoy the ambiance created from a custom fire feature. Fire pits and fireplaces create a beautiful gathering space for friends and family to gather outdoors and creates a central focal point for your outdoor living areas. Whether you choose a gas or wood-burning feature, a circular or square one, fire pits and fireplaces complement your home’s architecture and enhance its surroundings.

Outdoor Fire Features Extend the Livability and Comfort of Outdoor Spaces

When the weather grows cold and it gets dark outside, your outdoor spaces become unusable. An outdoor fire feature such as a fire pit or fireplace provides heat and light that extends the use of your outdoor living spaces. The heat from the fire provides enough heat for those who gather around it, allowing you to enjoy the outdoor area even on cold nights.

Natural lighting provided by your outdoor fire feature provides ample glow to light up your outdoor spaces and make them usable at night. The light from a fire pit or fireplace is low cost as it doesn’t affect your electric bill and allows you and your guests to enjoy the outdoors without having to cut their nighttime short due to lack of lighting.

Fire pits and fireplaces also provide natural insect repellent as the smoke and fumes created from burning wood deter bugs and other pests.

Adding a Fire Pit or Fireplace to Your Yard Expands Your Entertainment Space

With outdoor living becoming more and more popular, homeowners are looking for more ways to bring the entertainment outdoors with them. Adding a custom fire feature not only allows for extended time outdoors but also provides a means of cooking some food outdoors while entertaining guests.

Much like an outdoor kitchen, a fire pit, in particular, allows you to stay outside while preparing some types of food, rather than having to segregate yourself indoors in the kitchen. This increases your outdoor living space and increases the amount of time you can mingle with friends and family outdoors. Many people enjoy roasting marshmallows and cooking meat over an open pit. Providing your guests with an open flame to do this encourages bonding time and provides the perfect opportunity to spend quality time together.
