In addition to making a beautiful focal point and design anchor for your outdoor living area, an outdoor fireplace from Stone Solutions offers a number of additional benefits. An obvious benefit is the heat generated by an outdoor fireplace, which allows you to use your outdoor living area for more of the year. An outdoor fireplace will let you enjoy the crisp fall weather when it otherwise might be too chilly to sit outdoors. The soft light provided by an outdoor fireplace creates a warm and inviting ambiance. An outdoor fireplace also makes a great centerpiece for your entertainment area, whether it’s to roast s’mores with the kids or enjoy cocktails with the adults.
When deciding where to place your outdoor fireplace, there are a few factors to take into consideration. First, check your local zoning restrictions, which may dictate how close you can place your outdoor fireplace to other structures and the property line and the height of the chimney. In general, you’ll want to locate your outdoor fireplace in a large area with plenty of room for seating with the fireplace facing into your outdoor living area. You should also consider the typical wind direction and select a spot where the outdoor fireplace can act as a wind block. You can also place your outdoor fireplace so that it doubles as a privacy barrier.
Let the experts at Stone Solutions help you select the best style and type of outdoor fireplace your outdoor living area.
