Step into any upscale home or home that has had professional landscaping and you will likely see either an outdoor fireplace or firepit. Why? Because professionals know that every homeowner can use a firepit in their backyard. Whether you love to entertain or you simply want to unwind quietly by yourself, a firepit is the ideal locale. There is something tranquil and calm about the glow and warmth that a firepit provides. You will sit down next to it and never want to leave. Firepits are useful year round – whether it is a cold night and you need some warmth or a warm summer night and you have just hopped out of the pool, unwind next to your elegant carved stone firepit. A custom-built, carved stone firepit is a useful addition to any home and below we explain the top 3 reasons why this is so.
- Add Value to Your Home
- A store-bought, run-of-the-mill firepit doesn’t look particularly beautiful and certainly does not add any value to your home because. When you invest in a custom-designed firepit for your home, you know that it will coordinate perfectly with the style of your home and naturally enhance its beauty and value. Should you ever decide to sell your home, it is a feature potential buyers are certain to love. Worth explains why fire pits add value to your home, “Maximize the potential of your outdoor entertaining areas. Erika Granath of Balistreri Realty in Boca Raton, Fla., suggests upgrading to a full outdoor “summer” kitchen. This might include a bar, a pizza oven and a fireplace or fire pit. “Buyers are wowed by great outdoor spaces,” she says.”
- Add Beauty to Your Home
- When you have invested in your home’s beauty, as well as beautiful landscaping, your firepit should not be a flimsy piece of metal you put a few pieces of wood in. First of all – they are not stable and the last thing you need is a fire hazard or someone injuring themselves. Second, they do not look high-end and will detract from the beauty of your home and landscaping.
- Create an Area for Entertaining and Relaxing
- Have you looked longingly out the window on a cold night and wished you could entertain your guests in your beautiful backyard only to realize that everyone will be chilly? With a firepit you will have a great area for entertaining and relaxing for both you and your guests. Add natural stone benches around your firepit for seating and you and your guests will want to linger around the fire all night.
