Many people mistakenly think that fireplaces are fall and winter only heating appliances. While you may not want a roaring fire inside when the outside temperatures soar, an outdoor fireplace can provide more than just heat year round!
Adding a new outdoor fireplace to your home is a great way add lasting value, get the most out of your outdoor living spaces, and enjoy time spend with family and friends throughout the year.
Benefits of an Outdoor Fireplace
When looking for a new home, outdoor spaces have quickly become just as important as the indoor ones. A recent survey by the National Association of Home Builders found that the number one most requested home feature were outdoor spaces: porches, patios, decks, gardens, and the most asked about outdoor feature – fireplaces.
Outdoor fireplaces can transform your yard by adding style and creating ambiance. The following are five of the many benefits of building an outdoor fireplace for your home.
1. Add Value to Your Home
Creating a custom outdoor fireplace for your home might seem like a major undertaking, but it is a project with serious return on investment. Outdoor fireplaces are the most requested outdoor feature; building one not only adds value to your and increases its potential listing price, but also helps set your home apart from similar listings in the area.

3. Enjoy Outdoor Spaces Year Round
No matter the season, nothing chases family and friends inside faster than a cold nip in the evening air. Adding an fireplace to your outdoor spaces allows you to get more enjoyment from them year round, even when the weather is cooler. Outdoor fireplaces can extend the life of your outdoor space by warming up cool summer evenings, chilly fall afternoons during football season, and more.
4. Create Outdoor Entertaining Space.
A beautiful fireplace – as well as the heat it provides – serves as a natural focal point in an outdoor space, drawing in friends and family. Tables, chairs, sofas, and other outdoor seating can be positioned around the fireplace to create an entirely new outdoor living space to use throughout the year.
5. Get More Than Just Heat
Outdoor fireplaces provide more than just heat or added value to your home; they can also be used as a source of entertainment! Many homeowners enjoy using their outdoor fireplaces for roasting marshmallows, cooking hot dogs, and more – particularly if you have a gas indoor fireplace. Burning outside also gives homeowners the opportunity to experiment with different types of woods; while fragrant soft woods such as cherry may create too much smoke indoors, they are perfect for outdoor fires.
This year, make an outdoor fireplace the center of your summer celebrations. Contact Coopertown Services today for more information on building the outdoor fireplace of your dreams!
