Add an outdoor fireplace to your yard this summer Image - Bergen County NJ - Oosting Custom Masonry & ChimneyDo you love your outdoor space, but wish you could maximize it by creating an additional gathering space or by being able to spend more of the year outdoors? Consider adding an outdoor fireplace! You’ll realize a host of benefits.

Extend your outdoor season.

Perhaps the biggest benefit of an outdoor fireplace is that it extends your outdoor season. Instead of being driven inside by fall’s chilly nights, you will be able to gather around your outdoor fireplace. When spring’s beautiful days have you eager for outdoor entertainment, your outdoor fireplace can provide the heat you need to enjoy your patio space whenever you desire.

Create a stunning focal point.

An outdoor fireplace can add “wow” factor to any backyard. Like the fireplace within a home, an outdoor fireplace can anchor an outdoor living space. An outdoor fireplace adds a stylish element that friends and family can gather around.

Grow your living space.

When you create an outdoor space anchored by an outdoor fireplace, you essentially grow your living space. An outdoor fireplace and the surrounding area give you more area to relax, entertain and enjoy without having to expand the actual footprint of your home.

Increase your home’s value.

Indoor fireplaces have long been on home buyer’s list of must-have amenities. Large outdoor living spaces have been growing in popularity, and growing your outdoor living space with an outdoor fireplace can help you increase your home’s value. An outdoor fireplace can beautify your backyard and make your home standout when it comes time to sell.

Add an outdoor cooking space.

If you enjoy entertaining your family and friends while cooking on an open fire, an outdoor fireplace can create a unique outdoor cooking space for you! There are obvious campfire foods, such as hot dogs and marshmallows, but with a few accessories, you can use your outdoor fireplace to create entire meals in your outdoor living space.

Choose from a host of options.

If you are trying to set the right tone for your outdoor living space, an outdoor fireplace built to suit your tastes will help you meet that goal! When you design an outdoor fireplace, you have many ways to customize it to suit your needs and your style. Outdoor fireplaces can be wood-burning or gas, freestanding or built against your home’s exterior wall, constructed from a variety of rustic, modern, romantic or classic materials, and any size you want.
