Inspiration for yards big and small
A DIY outdoor fireplace kit makes a seemingly complex project achievable. There are a variety of outdoor fireplace kits available so you can select the one that fits your space and budget.
For smaller spaces, the Latessa Fire Pit Kit is a good option with its smaller footprint and beautiful design. This firepit features a high rear wall design that allows you to position it nearer to fences and property lines, plus it blocks fall breezes to protect the flames. You will love the way the light and shadows of the fire dance on the rear wall and project the light forward and up.
For larger spaces and maximum impact, consider the Party Pad Patio Kit that is a circular design that features a patio, seating space and a fire pit. This kit is also designed with two columns that add style and function to the space. They can be used as tables or support for decorative lighting, plants or displaying outdoor art. Choose from different color stone combinations to create your preferred aesthetic.
Entertaining possibilities of outdoor fireplaces are virtually endless: Just imagine hosting a group of friends for cocktails after a long work week. Invite the neighbors over to watch or listen to the big game while enjoying the fresh air. Make memories with your kids by gathering to roast marshmallows and enjoy hot cider while snuggling around the crackling flames.
Be the envy of your neighbors, add to your home's value, and most importantly, extend the time you can enjoy your outdoor space into fall and beyond.
