Outdoor fireplaces as the main point of one’s landscape have become increasingly popular in Indiana and elsewhere in recent years. These areas provide homeowners with more space for entertaining without having to invite all of their friends inside. When combined with an outdoor kitchen, the outdoor fireplace becomes The Space for some epic memory creation.

What Is It That Makes an Outdoor Stone Fireplace or Fire Pit So Special?

Because of the warm fall and spring nights, Indiana is ideal for outdoor stone fireplaces and fire pits. Yes, it can get hot, but it doesn’t take away the enjoyment of resting around an outdoor fireplace or fire pit with a bowl of ice cream or a glass of wine! However, there are other reasons why homeowners choose to have an outside fireplace, whether it is a modern-style fireplace or a traditional wood fire pit. Consider the following:

  • The ability to extend summer into the fall or to venture outside early in the spring. After all, just because the temperature starts to lower down doesn’t mean those evenings spent outdoors in the back yard are finished.
  • They provide a one-of-a-kind architectural accent to your yard. Instead of a typical yard with little to offer the eye, a stone fireplace or even a red brick chimney adds interest – especially if you plan to sell your Central Indiana property in the future!
  • Typically, a fireplace is not the only addition; there is often a patio or partially enclosed room that gives additional entertaining space. People frequently include televisions, stereo systems, and other features, making the outdoor brick fireplace area a popular location to play.
  • Outdoor fireplaces are the only method to have an outdoor fire on your property in most localities. This is especially true if you reside in a city where outdoor fires are prohibited unless enclosed or confined.
  • A fireplace effectively blocks winds and, on a more personal level, provides additional privacy. The amount of privacy offered by an outdoor stone fireplace can vary depending on its size.
  • You may make the heart as large or thin as you want, allowing you to do many outdoor landscape designs.
  • As a heat source, you have numerous options, ranging from genuine wood to gas logs, fireplace inserts, and others. Choose the heat feature that best suits your demands.

An Outdoor Fireplace or Fire Pit Come in a Variety of Styles

An Outdoor fireplace is designed in the same way as its inside counterparts, with a firebox, flue, chimney, and hearth. They can be either gas or wood-burning, and they can survive almost any form of weather. Because you can manage the degrees of heat, gas is regarded as the safest of the two options; however, you must have gas lines that run where J. Allen will put your outdoor fireplace. Many people like Chimeneas for wood-burning outdoor fires. The Chimenea, which can be made of wood or metal, has a front-loading oven with a chimney or a smoke vent. The most severe issue with a Chimenea is that the unit’s exterior can grow quite hot.

An Outdoor fireplace or fire pit is an excellent complement to any backyard setting. To learn more about having an outdoor fireplace placed at your house, call J. Allen Masonry at (463) 222-4525 or use our contact form.
