Brighten Up your Pool with Fire Features

August 25th, 2016

When the weather is warm and the sun is setting, brighten up your pool area with a fire feature. Not only will a fire feature extend the use of your pool into the cooler months, but will also create a glowing place to gather around with family and friends. Fire features can range from an outdoor fireplace to a simpler, smaller fire pit that can be placed alongside the water. Light up your backyard with a fire feature and create an elegant atmosphere of warmth and beauty surrounding your pool.

There is nothing cozier than sitting by your Stone Arch Fireplace.

Outdoor Fireplaces

An outdoor fireplace is a great way to enhance your backyard experience. Simply place some comfortable furniture, cushions, and blankets around the fireplace to create a cozy gathering area that everyone can enjoy. When placed next to a pool, the fireplace can keep you warm after taking a swim, create light around your backyard and pool area, or can be a beautiful spot to sit and look out at the water on a warm evening.

Fire Pits

Fire pits are another wonderful option when looking for a fire feature to put near water. Fire pits can be moved to fit your outdoor décor needs and can be used during any season. They come in many styles and designs so you are sure to find one to compliment your outdoor architecture, or to match your existing outdoor furniture. Fire pits can be put to great use when hosting and entertaining guests as a source of warmth and light, and as a place for guests to mingle around.

Fire Bowls

Fire bowls are the perfect fire feature if you are looking for a way to add light and warmth immediately alongside the edge of your pool. Some fire bowls can even be customized to serve as both a fire feature and a water feature, in the form of a fountain. Fire bowls are a smaller version of fire pits that can be placed on the ground, on a patio, and depending on their size, on a column or another architectural form. Though they are smaller than a traditional fire pit or outdoor fireplace, the fire bowls still create a flame large enough to give off heat and light.

If you have a specific vision of what you would like to see in your backyard, next to the water, the Outdoor GreatRoom Company can create a custom fire pit to make your dream a reality! Take a look at the website for inspiration and click here to start the process of creating your perfect fire pit.

An outdoor kitchen island is a great way to spend time outdoors with your family and friends in a space that is completely customizable to your lifestyle and architectural tastes. The possibilities of what to include in your outdoor kitchen are endless and help to ensure that you are maximizing the use of your backyard!

These islands are 100% customizable to fit the need of each individual home. Many kitchen islands can be designed to include a grill, refrigerator, bar, sink, dining and counter space, cabinets, and even a place to hold trash. Creating a kitchen complete with all of these components ensures that all of your food preparation can be done outside on you island, minimizing the amount of trips back and forth from the kitchen. If your focus is more on the beverage side, look into options such as a kegerator or a wine cooler for your outdoor bar. Wine racks are an easy add and look great in an outdoor kitchen! With a traditional kitchen island, you’ll never have to worry about missing the party while you’re busy preparing a meal, snacks, or drinks!

 

Entertainment IslandCustom Kitchen Island

If you’re looking to create an outdoor space that can serve as both a place for food preparation and entertaining, consider adding an element such as a fire pit to your island. The fire pit may be small, but will add a touch of elegance to your island giving you more counter space and will make a beautiful place for you to gather around with family. Take it a step further and increase your options for entertainment by adding a TV or speakers to play music from, to keep your family and friends entertained. Specialty lighting is also a simple and easy way to create ambiance in and around your outdoor island. An entertainment island looks great on a patio or next to a pool. Spend your summer outdoors, by the water, with your drinks and snacks just a few feet away!
