Do you like to spending time out in nature?
Maybe you’re a master gardener, bird-watcher, corn-hole enthusiast, or just like being outside in the Southwest sun with family and friends.
Whatever the case, if you’re all about being in your backyard, then you should consider adding an outdoor fireplace.
Along with changing the whole ambiance of your outdoor space, there are many other benefits to including this feature.
1. Adds Value to Your Home
The Arizona housing market is always hot.
Although your house may not be on the market now, if you’re planning to sell one day, adding an outdoor fireplace will increase the resale value of your home.
The addition of a beautiful stucco outdoor fireplace to your home can greatly increase its resale value. Potential buyers these days are drawn to outdoor entertainment spaces.
An outdoor fireplace is also going to make your home more memorable. Prospective buyers see that specially designed fireplace and immediately conjure up images of how they will use it one day. It’s added incentive, for sure.
2. Extends the Outdoor Season
Even when living in a warmer climate like that in Arizona, this reason may have as much as an appeal. Some of those winter evening or nights can get a little chilly after the sun sets.
Sitting under string lights by a gorgeous chiminea fireplace, for instance, will cut that chill and allow for the festivities to continue.
Or it will provide you warmth to snuggle with your family while staring out at the bright stars and desert moon.
3. Creates a Focal Point
On a pure design level, an outdoor fireplace gives structure and definition and allows you to add a little drama to your Southwestern outdoor space.
It provides a strong vertical focal point that can adapt to numerous different design elements and styles.
4. Smoke Stays Contained
If you already have a fire pit, you might feel like that’s enough. And it might be, depending on your situation.
But one of the most unpleasant things about a fire pit is the way the smoke goes everywhere. So no matter where you sit, you’re bound to be in the path of the smoke eventually.
It’s much nicer to cozy up near an outdoor fireplace than a fire pit. You get the warmth and glow, but aren’t bombarded with smoke each time the wind changes direction.
When you get right down to it, an outdoor fireplace is just plain practical, fun and attractive.
Not only does it provide light and warmth, but it’s a great place to cook up some burgers or kebabs.
And there’s nothing quite so deterring to pesky bugs than smoke and fire. Because even us desert dwellers still have to deal with a few insects!
