Picture this: you’re lounging on a cushioned patio chair on the back porch. Fireflies flit around the dark night sky, the kids are running around the backyard, and the ceiling fan is whirring, creating a nice, gentle breeze. You have a book in your lap and an ice-cold drink in hand. In the fireplace, a fire burns merrily, adding ambience to a night of summer relaxation.
C&M Residential creates custom outdoor spaces for homeowners in Marietta. One of our favorite outdoor additions is an outdoor fireplace, which adds ambiance and entertainment to the porch year round. What are our favorite ways to enjoy an outdoor fireplace during the summer?
Benefits of an Outdoor Fireplace
- Roast marshmallows. Do you have kids, grandkids, or a spouse who never grew up? Recapture the magic of childhood summers by making s’mores. You can “rough it” by whittling sticks from the backyard, or just admit that you love roasting marshmallows and invest in metal fire roasting sticks.
- Up the romance. Soft lighting? Check. Ambient noise? Check. Cozy porch? Check. There’s nothing like cuddling up with your spouse in front of a roaring fireplace. Listen to the crickets sing and forget about the world for awhile.
- Throw a party. You love your outdoor fireplace; so will your friends! Fire up the grill, put the drinks on ice, and enjoy a relaxing evening in front of the crackling fire.
Whether you want to install an outdoor fireplace, design an outdoor kitchen, or redo the landscaping in the backyard, C&M Residential is at your service.
