What is its function?
Getting a fire pit or a fireplace outside is an ideal informal setting. It is the perfect place to entertain your friends and family and relax after a hectic day. You could have a camp-fire feel in your backyard. This is a great way to add to your backyard’s ambiance, and you could surround it with waterfalls or fountains.
Choosing the design
When you pick a fireplace or a fire pit for your house, whether it is inside or outside, you face a lot of choices. When we are spending so much, there are certain expectations that we have in mind. The fire pits and fireplaces can be customized according to how you want them. You could get either a tile or stone or a block finish to match the exteriors of your house. The fireplace is taller, and there are a wide variety of options. You could go for a traditional look or a modern look, log-style or glass media, brick or stainless steel interior, and stone or brick could be surrounding the fireplace. The fireplace has a minimum height of three feet.
Choosing the type of fire
When you are placing a fireplace outside, you need to keep in mind a lot of things. One is the positioning of the fireplace. The fireplace needs to be positioned in such a way that it blocks wind and reduces heat loss. The fireplace radiates more heat as compared to the firepit and is able to keep the space warmer.
Keep your budget in mind.
Deciding whether you want to opt for a fireplace or a fire pit could be a tough call. The fire pits are a cheaper option as compared to the outdoor fireplace. An outdoor fireplace also includes a surrounding of either tile or brick, or stone, which could add a gorgeous anchor to your outdoor space.
Safety is key
Using a gas fireplace is always a safer option as compared to wood fire pits or wood fireplaces. They won’t contain sparks and ashes flying about. If there are kids around, you won’t have to worry about them trying to touch the fire. The gas fireplace is generally safer and doesn’t require much upkeep.
