Spruce Up Your Patio Space with an Outdoor Fireplace

As we approach the springtime, we are all very outdoor minded. You may be asking yourself now how you can spruce up your yard and your property this season to make time spent outside with family and friends more enjoyable. You might be considering cleaning up or even expanding your patio or adding new features to your yard. If so – and you want a more central outdoor gathering point – nothing beats a fireplace under the stars.

Outdoor FireplaceAn outdoor fireplace is something of a throwback to our ancestors telling stories by the fire beneath the night sky. The only difference is that you can do this now right in your backyard – a place of comfort and relaxation. Whether you have a classic fire pit or Mexican-inspired clay fireplace – a chiminea – an outdoor fireplace is an extremely wise investment. It serves as a natural gathering point for you and your guests and, weather permitting, it can be used year-round. Installing a fireplace is more affordable than you might think, and best of all they have very limited upkeep requirements.

Thinking of something larger or that caters more to your passion for grilling? Some people opt to have a full outdoor kitchen installed. An outdoor barbecue pit or grill and kitchen will allow you to not just host your guests, but also feed them a delicious meal as well. Whether you opt for a fireplace or full kitchen, you’ll make your yard the place to be this summer and every season.

Enjoy the Outdoors More – And Add Significant Property Value!

Standards of suburban living have gone up over the past decades, and you deserve to be right on par with everyone else. Many homes today include an outside add-on of some sort. For example, many homeowners will have their patio redone or have an outdoor kitchen installed. This allows for more space in the outdoor areas of the home and more opportunities to entertain guests.

Outdoor KitchenOutdoor additions are a great way to improve your home and your quality of life. Not sure what to do? Adding an outdoor kitchen or barbecue area is an appealing spot to develop. Not only will this make your home a more luxurious place for you and your family, it will also add significant property value.

There is no better home investment than having an attractive and useful patio installed. This will give your home a much higher value than the price you purchased it for. The cost of the addition will pay for itself when you are able to sell your house for a high profit. Potential homebuyers look for certain things when they are weighing their options. A custom build stone fire pit could not only be the selling point, but it could give you a significant return on investment (ROI).

Fire pits average a 150 percent ROI, while outdoor kitchens can add a 100 to 200 percent ROI, according to Inman. Not only will adding a functional outdoor kitchen or built-in barbecue increase the value of your home, it will give you something to enjoy while you’re living there.
