TYPES OF FIRE PITS
Outdoor fireplaces come in a variety of shapes and styles. If you want to create a space for conversation, consider a fire pit in the shape of a circle. You can also design a fire pit, like a rectangle, which you can line up against benches so that your guests stay warm. In general, there are two styles of fire pits – built-in and portable.
- Built-in: If money is no object, definitely go for a built-in fireplace. It will be a bigger construction project, but the results will be worth it. You can build them near your patio, or as a stand-alone feature in the backyard. Materials commonly used are brick, tile, stone, and stucco. Atlanta Outdoor Designs can design and install your custom outdoor fireplace in Atlanta GA.
- Portable: For those on a budget, you may want to consider building a portable fireplace. It’s also incredibly convenient, as you can move the fireplace around, whenever you’re in the mood for a new look. Common materials used are cast iron, aluminum, steel and copper.
IT’S ALL ABOUT THE ACCESSORIES
You can really add some pizzazz to your custom outdoor fireplace by complementing it with the right accessories. Balls, firestones, logs, and a designer favorite, fire glass, can really elevate the look of your outdoor fireplace. You can find them a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors. Look through Pinterest to find creative ideas to inspire you.
If you’re in the market to upgrade your current fireplace, consider doing fireplace remodeling. Fireplace remodeling is not only great for aesthetic purposes, but it also adds more value to your home, making it much more attractive to potential buyers. Brick fireplaces are the easiest to replace. Wrap the brick in wood, or tile. The small portion of exposed brick that is left, you can keep within the fireplace itself. The two textures present an ultra smart, modern and unique look.
