How often do you sit outside in your backyard, enjoying the patio? If you do this a lot, or want to find a way to enjoy your patio all year round, you may want to consider installing an outdoor fireplace.
An outdoor fireplace is a great way to spruce up your entire living area and truly makes your patio a four-season space. With an outdoor fireplace, you can unwind and relax with a cold drink on warm evenings and enjoy roasted marshmallows or hot cocoa on crisp fall or cold winter nights! No matter how fancy of a space you want, an outdoor fireplace can improve it.
Outdoor Fireplace Options
If you’re interested in installing an outdoor fireplace for your Ellicott City home, you have a lot of choices! The most common material for outdoor fireplaces is stone (sandstone, limestone, granite, etc.), but fireplaces—and fire pits—are available in all different types of other materials:
- Cast iron
- Stainless steel
Each material has its own advantages. Stone complements any home and provides a beautiful look anyone can appreciate. Brick fireplaces are unique and sturdy. Stainless steel is sometimes used for the door of the fireplace (usually set in stone or brick) and is easy to clean. Copper and cast iron (often used for fire pits) are durable and perfect for rustic settings.
Outdoor Fire Pits
What if you want to enjoy your outdoor living space more often but don’t want to build a full fireplace? A fire pit is the next best thing—and we’ve designed many patios with integrated fire pits! Like outdoor fireplaces, integrated fire pits can also allow you to use your patio all year round and help boost the market value of your home in Ellicott City.
