Outdoor Living: Fireplace or Fire Pit?

Outdoor Living: Fireplace or Fire Pit?

Earlier we posted an article talking about the trending style of modern fireplaces that have been very common this year. Although these sleek fireplaces offer a fun and new twist, sometimes you just want a classic.

Fire accessories instantly give you an opportunity to enhance your outdoor living space making them a season round, favorite destination. The American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLS) recently conducted a survey and found that fireplaces and firepits are the most desired outdoor design element of 2015. However, this presents us with a challenge. Should I purchase a fireplace or a firepit to enhance my backyard?

   

Both options make an immediate statement and provide enough heat to keep your outdoor space open all year. But they each provide a slightly different feel that you may not be aware of. We decided to put the two head to head and figure out which one is best for you. When deciding between a fireplace and a firepit make sure to take these points into consideration to make the best choice.

Regardless of what you decide, Reading Rock has great options to meet your needs. We recently have added the Stone Age Standard wood burning fireplace to our collection. Fireboxes can be added and the fireplace comes in the two popular sizes of 36” and 48”. We also provide Hearth and Home Technologies outdoor fireplace options for both wood and gas.
