The idea of an outdoor fireplace: This is where something known as an outdoor fireplace comes into play. This product takes the idea of a home fireplace and applies it to an outdoor living area. Resembling a normal fireplace, the outdoor variety is weather proof, very durable, and amazing at directing heat exactly where you want it. With an outdoor fireplace, you can have a fun, safe, and warm time with your family regardless of the temperature outside!
Refacing the fireplace -- If you want to take the project to a whole new level, you can drastically change the look of a fireplace by using different materials on the exterior face of the fireplace. You can create a high-end elegant look with marble slabs, a modern look with concrete slabs, or a Craftsman look with small tiles in different shades and complementary woodwork. You can either add a mantel or remove one. You can change the shape or the size of the mantel to provide different proportions to your fireplace. Another option is to sheetrock or plaster parts of the fireplace. If the mass of the fireplace is too much for the room, you can reduce it by adding sheetrock or paneling to the exterior. There are even veneer stone and brick materials that are fairly easy to apply that can give your fireplace a very traditional look.
Consider the type of material that would be efficient as well as beautiful enough to put that perfect amount of pizazz into your living room. Sometimes you might want to use the standard brick style because it fits, but take that plain brick style and step it up a notch. You can do this by designing a layout that tells your guests that you are far from simple. Just because you want the traditional brick does not mean it has to be built traditionally. You can take any of the available materials and make almost any pattern that your mind can think up. Be creative and allow spontaneity to come into play.
But what if you want a campfire to be a part of your outdoor living room? Well, this is where things get interesting. While you can build a campfire near your outdoor furniture, this can be messy and unruly at times, as anyone who has gone camping before can testify to. One option you have is buying a fire pit and loading up logs in that, however fire pits tend to waft heat in 360 degrees, and upwards. This is naturally not very advantageous if you want to provide some form of heat to your outdoor living room.
