Get More Use Out of Your Outdoor Space This Season

Get More Use Out of Your Outdoor Space This Season

Chilly nights with the breeze coming off of Lake Erie make the perfect setting for an outdoor fireplace or fire pit.


Sitting in front of the fireplace evokes calm, warmth and intimacy. You can create that same atmosphere when you add a fireplace to your outdoor living rooms.

When the night gets chilly, don’t run inside to get warm. Instead, invite your guests to sit in front of your backyard fireplace. When you add a sofa, recliners and chairs with colorful cushions, pillows and throws, you’re creating a space where your family and friends can warm up with a glass of wine and conversation.

Your backyard fireplace is the focal point — for both your outdoor room as well as from inside your home. When you add an outdoor fireplace, you’ll add a hardscape feature that complements your established landscape design.

Fire Pits

Fire pits are lively and fun. When you add a circular seat wall, pillows and throws, you’re inviting a more casual atmosphere to your outdoor living.

You can roast marshmallows and make s’mores as well as tell ghost stories and share memories around a fire pit. Depending on your style, you could even put a fire pit near your pool.

If you prefer a more linear seating design, you can add colorful Adirondack chairs in front or around your fire pit.

Both fireplaces and fire pits come in a variety of styles, and you can match the ones you want to meet your current lifestyle and entertainment needs.
If you can’t decide which one will best fit your backyard goals, then choose both a fireplace and a fire pit for your outdoor rooms. 

You can add the fireplace in the outdoor living/dining and kitchen areas. Moreover, you can add a fire pit on another patio on the next level or in a different spot in a backyard nook.
