Remodeling Your Outdoor Space? Consider a Fireplace
You and your partner might not be able to agree on the perfect backsplash for your kitchen or tile for your bathroom but, chances are, you can both agree that a fireplace makes any living space more homey. If you are thinking about investing in a remodeling project, why not consider investing in an outdoor fireplace?
Plenty of studies confirm that a fire feature is the most popular design element for homeowners and prospective homeowners. Adding an outdoor fireplace transforms a backyard into an outdoor living space. Along with the practical value of having a heating appliance to keep you warm on chilly evenings, an outdoor fireplace is also a beautiful design feature that will be the focal point of your backyard.
These are four big advantages of investing in an outdoor fireplace:
#1 – You Will Get a Good Return on Your Investment
It’s easier to justify spending money on a home improvement project when you know that it will increase your home’s resale value. You can increase your home’s value by three times the amount you invest in an outdoor fireplace according to the American Society for Landscape Architects. For example, if you spend 5% of your home’s value on an outdoor fireplace it can increase your home’s value by 15%. That is a great return on your investment! Since more than 80 percent of house hunters are influenced by landscaping and have a fireplace on their wish list, you can be sure that your home will stand out.
#2 – The Installation Process is Convenient
One of the main reasons that homeowners push off improvement projects is because of the inconvenience. Living without a functioning bathroom or kitchen during a remodeling process can be stressful. Having an outdoor fireplace installed is a convenient process. You don’t have to move any furniture or appliances. It can be installed in less than a day.
#3 – You Can Enjoy Your Backyard Longer
With an outdoor fireplace, you don’t have to stay confined inside when the weather gets chilly. You can enjoy relaxing beside a crackling fire in your yard from the crisp days of spring to the brisk days of autumn. You can even light it up in the winter and sing carols around the fire with your friends and family. An outdoor fireplace produces enough heat to keep you comfortable in your backyard anytime of the year.
#4 – It Will Transform Your Backyard into the Perfect Party Spot
If you like posting parties and other get-togethers, an outdoor fireplace will make your backyard an ideal hosting spot. Keeping your guests comfortable when the weather drops along with creating a welcoming ambiance aren’t the only reasons to install an outdoor fireplace. You can also roast hotdogs or marshmallows over the fire together.
