With the coldest days of winter ahead of us many homeowners are thinking about cozying up by the fireplace for a little warmth and relaxation. The truth is, in the same way an interior fireplace can serve as your comfort zone for the cooler months indoors, an outdoor fireplace packs just as much punch for the outdoors. Outdoor fireplaces are now considered one of the “must have” accompaniments to any outdoor living space combination. Outdoor fire features make the perfect partner to a backyard patio or porch, and outdoor fireplaces are often used to add style and ambiance to a screened porch or 4-season room.
An outdoor fire feature exudes ambiance and expands your entertaining and recreational opportunities within your outdoor living space. Many homeowners in the Greensboro, and Winston Salem area agree that an outdoor fireplace is well worth the investment. Here is a glimpse into a few outdoor fireplace ideas that are sure to turn up the heat in any setting!
Using a rustic, natural stone or tumbled hardscape on an outdoor fireplace adds textural interest to an outdoor gathering space or outdoor room.

Using an outdoor fireplace as the center of your seating arrangement in a patio, porch or other outdoor room makes the space appear anchored. An outdoor fireplace makes the perfect gathering spot for good times with family and friends!
You can use the height and dynamics of your outdoor fireplace to serve as the focal point of your backyard or outdoor room addition. A large hearth provides additional seating for guests when the fireplace is not in use.
Freestanding outdoor fireplaces add interest and character without compromising the structure of your home and can turn an ignored area of the landscape into an outdoor retreat. An outdoor fireplace adds tons of character to any space. It also ensures your outdoor living area can be in use even after the sun goes down or as the seasons change.
Available in a wide range of sizes, shapes and materials, a fireplace is the ideal finishing touch to your backyard. Whether you are looking to create a small, intimate space for the family, or a warm and inviting area for entertaining larger groups during colder weather, a custom fireplace is the answer.
