Top 5 Reasons to Install an Outdoor Fireplace

At Empire City we pride ourselves on custom designing and constructing the outdoor living experience you’ve always wanted. Amenities like outdoor kitchens, fire pits, and outdoor lighting add so much to the joy of having a special backyard getaway. One of the features that we bring to your patio stands apart from the rest, however. I’m talking, of course, about our outdoor fireplaces.

There are so many advantages to owning an outdoor fireplace. Below are 5 of the benefits we think deserve mentioning.


1. Warmth and Comfort

It’s a given that a good fireplace can keep you warm and cozy in your den or living room. But having a fireplace outside on your patio is a whole new experience. Feel free to enjoy your backyard getaway even during the cold winter months. An outdoor fireplace will keep you warm throughout the year so you can spend as much time on the patio as possible.

2. Perfect for Parties

A beautiful outdoor fireplace supplied by Empire City will give your partygoers something to remember. Fireplaces provide a warm, lovely focal point for your guests. It also creates a comfortable place to sit and have intimate conversations. Fun activities can take place around the fire as well, like roasting marshmallows or cooking hot dogs. Be sure you keep party safety in mind by adding an outside door or free standing screen.

3. Romance, Romance

Fires have always been known to put people in a romantic mood. Imagine walking out into the cool crisp air of a spring evening, opening a bottle of wine, and cuddling up with your love right by the fire. An outdoor fireplace creates intimate ambiance for any romantic situation. If you’re looking for the perfect place to spend time with your love, have dinner or great and long conversations, an outdoor fireplace is an excellent option.

4. Get Cooking!

Like I mentioned earlier, your outdoor fireplace can be a great way to cook with party guests. Hosting a weenie roast for the kids or adults is a delicious way to utilize such a great feature of your patio. Don’t forget about the holidays, when you can roast chestnuts right in the fire to create a deliciously festive experience.
