In the spring, summer, and fall, sitting by your outdoor fireplace can be a great way to pass the time. After all, who doesn’t enjoy the smell of burning firewood and roasting hot dogs? Still, it can be hard to enjoy your time outside in the winter. That’s why you need fire features.
Fire Pits and Fireplaces
The first decision you need to make is whether you want a new fire pit or an actual fireplace. Both have huge advantages, and both of them require you to be careful when operating them. Upgrade your outdoor kitchen with a fire pit. Doing this can make your backyard the place to be, even if you don’t have an enclosed back deck, so choose the shapes and sizes that you want. You can also watch the snow fall from your yard while enjoying the glow and warmth of a fire. Ultimately, the choice is yours. Here are few things you’ll need to think about, though:
- How big your patio or deck is,
- How close it is to doors and windows and other common areas,
- How it will look,
- And what you plan on doing with it.
Once you have decided to have a fire pit or fireplace keeping you warm this winter, you need to consider the fuel source it uses. Using firewood seems like the easiest idea, but you’ll probably need to consult your homeowners association, or HOA, before you do anything. After all, you don’t want to create an accidental fire hazard! Make sure the fire can’t get out of control and that you clean up after yourself once you’re done with it to prevent a blaze.
You can also choose gas or propane to fuel your fires. It all depends on what you can do in your neighborhood, and what you can afford.
