If you love spending time on your patio or deck, youâ€™ve already noticed that fall weather is on the way. Why not get a bit more mileage out of your back yard this year by simply adding a fireplace? Just a bit of extra warmth could make the difference when you want to snuggle up for a cocktail or snack outdoors.
Depending on where you live climate-wise and what kind of equipment your yard can accommodate, your options for outdoor fireplaces can include chimineas, metal fire pits, metal fire rings, and outdoor stoves.
Effortlessly Elegant Outdoor Fireplaces
Today’s incredible selection of contemporary and traditional outdoor fireplace designs can fit seamlessly with the look youâ€™ve already created in your yard. Add a touch of class to a partially enclosed patio with elegant wall mounted fireplace sconces. Grab a portable stove-style model to hang out on your back deck and switch to your front porch as inspiration strikes.
For maximum warmth, add a heater or two. Combined with the comforting ambiance of your outdoor fireplace, youâ€™ll be downright toasty well into the fall. Bring your blanket and a hot drink, but be warned, you might get so comfortable you wonâ€™t want to head in for the night!
Portable Fires for Home and Away
How about a last-minute camping trip? Not only can an outdoor fireplace keep you lounging out back later in the year, but you could choose a portable fireplace and go camping or RVing. If you donâ€™t like crowded campsites, fall is a great time to go. And with your portable outdoor fireplace, youâ€™re ready for chilly weather.
A really clever combination is a fire pit (shown above) with gel-fueled simulated logs. You can have the safety of gel fuel in your back yard, but leave the log set at home when you camp. The versatility to burn wood or gel to suit your mood will leave you smiling even if thereâ€™s a nip in the air.
