Outdoor Fireplaces Vs. Fire Pits
There are many considerations to make when deciding between an outdoor fireplace or a fire pit. While both make your outdoor space a year-round favorite destination, they can also serve very different functions. So what is the difference between the two, and which is the best choice for you and your home? The guide below outlines a number of the key differences between an outdoor fireplace and a fire pit.
- Typically entertains 4-6 guests at a time
- Acts as a sort of privacy wall dependent on size
- Guests face one way
- Typically requires added seating (chairs/couches)
- More costly than a fire pit
- Typically entertains 10-12 guests at a time
- Smaller structure does not block views/provide privacy
- Guests face each other inwardly
- Optional to stand or have built in seating
- Less costly than a fireplace
Whether you build a wood-burning or gas fireplace or fire pit, the romantic and relaxing atmosphere created by an outdoor fire feature is one that is hard to match. It will add value and appeal to your home, as well as hours of entertainment possibilities. Use your fireplace or pit as wood stoves or grills to prepare a meal outdoors, or heat your gathering area with a wood, gas, or pellet-burning feature to create a cozy and warm setting.
Natural Stone Chimneys in Asheville
Warming your house with wood requires a chimney. A well-crafted, natural stone chimney will add charm and value to your North Carolina home for decades.
