Fireplaces & Firepits
Fire pits and fireplaces can help create a charming outdoor living environment as well as add a unique selling point to any home. While increased home value is certainly a benefit of adding a fireplace or fire pit, most families will appreciate the crackling, flickering magic of gathering around a fire together even more. If you’ve dreamed of a built-in fire element in your home landscaping, your first major consideration is whether to choose a fire pit or a fireplace.
First, let’s get some basic definitions out of the way. Fire pits are rings built of stone or manufactured materials. They create a warm atmosphere reminiscent of camping trips. Fire pits create a social atmosphere perfect for groups of five or more. Fireplaces tend to face one direction; in this aspect they differ from the 360-degree access of fire pits. Fireplaces include a chimney, so they may be installed under a cover, for enjoyment even on rainy and windy days. Their more intimate design means that fireplaces create a more romantic, cozy feel, ideal for smaller groups of one to four people.
