Providing a warm gathering place, fireplaces are often considered the heart of the home. But when temperatures are comfortable, outdoor fireplaces and fire pits allow you to create an inviting gathering place outside, providing a fresh change of scenery.
A crackling outdoor fire pit can spur conversation, inspire star gazing and set the stage for a fun night filled with roasting marshmallows and popping popcorn. With several outdoor fireplace kits to choose from, Ace Hardware can help you achieve the look and function you’re going for with your outdoor space. Many of our models are even fitted with side tables and grills.
You might also consider purchasing a chimnea. While some simply prefer their attractive design, others prefer the way they emit heat more evenly and help control smoke fumes by pushing them through a tall smoke stack.
Once you’ve set up your outdoor fireplace of choice, remember to add few outdoor chairs or benches to make the space more welcoming. It’s also a good idea to keep fire logs on hand so you can enjoy a fire whenever the moment strikes.
