Outdoor fire features such as a fire pit, or an outdoor fireplace, serve as versatile additions to any backyard. A fire feature offers several benefits, and one of those is helping to bring a nice conclusion to the day during any season! Being a leading designer and builder of custom outdoor living spaces in the Columbia, SC, area, Archadeck of Central South Carolina has helped hundreds of homeowners enhance their time outdoors with a custom fire feature.
Choosing between a fire pit and fireplace is an important decision when designing an outdoor living environment. Both features extend the enjoyment of the space by providing warmth, light, relaxation and ambiance. However, they have important differences that should be considered. Along with the number of people you are trying to accommodate, and the function you want to achieve with your fire feature, the amount you wish to invest is also an important consideration.
An outdoor fireplace truly makes a statement in the landscape or as part of an outdoor living combination space. Fireplaces serve as dominant design features even when not in use, however, they do take up more linear space than a fire pit because more design components are involved. In order to make the best decision to fit your spatial needs and lifestyle, it is important to be aware of the size demands of an outdoor fireplace.
Adding a fire pit to your outdoor space is more economical than adding an outdoor fireplace. Depending on the materials, size and burning medium you choose for your fire pit (gas-burning pits are usually more expensive than wood-burning pits) your price tag could be half of that of an outdoor fireplace. This is a welcome thought for homeowners wishing to create backyard bliss on a budget.
