An outdoor fireplace can be both a beautiful and functional asset – plus add value to a home. It provides the perfect focal point for entertaining, and it offers warmth at the same time.
Not only that, but outdoor fireplaces can instantly upgrade the sophistication of a patio. When positioned right, they can extend the usable square footage of your home outward – making it appear that your home is larger.
When you look at it this way, permanent stone fireplaces are more of an “investment” in your property, because when you go to sell your home, the increased value can essentially cover the cost you paid for the installation.
All that said, we don’t want to pay more than we need to. According to Improvenet.com, a professionally installed outdoor fireplace can cost up to $20,000!
