Multiple Options with Outdoor Fireplaces and Firepits

From creating new entertaining spots in your backyard to enhancing an existing deck or patio, there are many ways outdoor fireplaces and firepits can enhance your home. Freestanding or portable fireplaces and firepits are appealing because they can be moved to suit different needs throughout the year. Permanent installations can also give any backyard, patio, or deck a luxurious feel. Of course, these backyard additions may also serve as an excuse to host parties and special gatherings earlier and later in the year due to the extra warmth provided. Keystone Custom Decks offers a wide array of different designs and options, including outdoor propane fireplaces and wood-burning fireplaces.

Paver Patios and Firepits

One way to individualize your hardscape features is with paver patios and firepits. Some popular fire features used to accompany patio designs include two-sided fireplaces, where the feature can be enjoyed from either side, and contemporary open-flame linear fire features. When you work with Keystone Custom Decks, the fire pit will be naturally included in the entire patio design. We have natural stone and manufactured pavers available in an assortment of colors and sizes that can be used to create your fire pit and the immediate area around it. Design-wise, your options are nearly limitless with pavers. If you have an existing patio with pavers, we can match the design or recommend complementary designs and colors to match your new fire pit. Are you starting from scratch in your backyard? If this is the case, we can design, build, and install a patio that includes a backyard fire pit.

Outdoor Wood Burning Fireplaces

Stone, stucco, tile, and brick are common materials for outdoor fireplaces. As far as fuel goes, we can give you a customized fireplace fueled by gas or coal. But if you prefer something that’s both modern and traditional, an outdoor wood burning fireplace from Keystone Custom Decks is worth considering. Possibilities include a traditional chimney-style shape with accessories like a BBQ rack, or designs with a one-piece front, brick-style liners, and mesh screens for added safety. We can even add a place for log storage to your outdoor wood burning fireplace.

Stone Outdoor Fireplaces

Add fireside ambiance to your backyard with a stone outdoor fireplace. Stone is a popular and ideal choice for an outdoor fireplace for many reasons. First of all, outdoor stone fireplaces are durable and fairly low in maintenance. Secondly, there’s a lot more diversity with style with stone fireplaces than you may realize. While you might think of stone as being limited to shades of gray, there are many different types of stone that can be used for a stone outdoor fireplace, such as limestone, granite, slate, and marble, that can give your exterior fireplace a classic, textured, or bold look. A covered porch is one of the most popular places to incorporate a stone fireplace. The porch provides you protection from the elements and helps retain the heat from the fireplace which allows you to enjoy this space in any type of weather and throughout majority of the year! When adding a fireplace into your porch, the space will more feel like an extension of your home, only in an outdoor setting!
