    This Summer’s Top Outdoor Fireplace Trends

    Google+TwitterEmailFacebook

    Summer is officially here and with last year’s harsh winter behind us homeowners are more eager than ever to take advantage of every minute of these warmer months.  In the past, families often spent this break from school as an opportunity to travel to Disneyland or road trip across the U.S.  With the slower economy and increasingly busier schedules, many are now opting to remain close to home enjoying their own backyards.  Looking for ways to create an outdoor oasis to call their own, many homeowners are choosing to update their standard fire pits to ones that feature not only more convenience but also the “wow” factor they are looking for.  

    Here are three of this summer’s hottest trends for outdoor fireplaces:Outdoor Fire Place

    1. Built-In Seating – Creating a uniform look, adding stone seating to the fireplace area has allowed homeowners to create an inviting entertaining area without the hassle of traditional outdoor furniture.   Long stone benches and cozy “couches” crafted for two are made more comfortable using some simple decorative pillows.
       
    2. Natural Stone – While gas fireplaces have seen a rise in popularity in the outdoor setting, many homeowners still are looking for a natural stone unit in their open-air spaces.  While stucco, rock, and brick remain mainstays in masonry choices, others are also turning to more unusual stones such as porcelain.
       
    3. Bigger is Better – While in the past the typical outdoor fireplace measured in at around 3 ft. tall, homeowners are now installing bigger, more substantial units that can top out at a whopping 10 ft. tall.   With many seeing the backyard as an extension of the home, these larger fireplaces help create and define a true living space.
