The changing of seasons can be a tricky time for people who enjoy spending time outdoors. The weather may still be warm, but it can also be unpredictable and inconsistent. The days are getting shorter, and evenings are getting too chilly to stay outside for more than a few minutes at a time — so although you may want to take advantage of the fact that mosquitoes and other seasonal bugs are dying off, it may not be warm enough to do so.

Outdoor fire fixtures, such as chimineas, fire pits, fire shoppes, and outdoor fireplaces, can be a fun and attractive solution when you’re trapped indoors by chilly evenings. These fire fixtures can provide a warm and bright area that can become a hub for outdoor parties and gatherings, allowing outdoor activities to continue as long into the evening as you want. Imagine sitting near your fire pit in the evening, alone with a good book… or with a few of your closest friends and some drinks. Whether you want to have a quiet evening relaxing by the fire or you’re planning to throw a wild party that your friends will remember for years, fire pits appeal to a very primitive desire for warmth and comfort.

Fire shoppes and chimineas can continue to be a great addition to your backyard or patio throughout the year. In the fall, friends and family can gather around the fire pit for an evening of toasting marshmallows, drinking cider and telling ghost stories. After a Saturday of tough yard work or springtime gardening, reward yourself with a drink by the outdoor fireplace. A outdoor fireplace can be great for an afternoon barbecue or summer pool party. Instead of sitting in front of the television when you get home from work, try relaxing outside in front of the fire.

There are a variety of great outdoor fire fixture options to fit any budget or space restrictions. Whether you opt for an easy to install bowl-style fire pit or choose a more elaborate custom-built outdoor fireplace, having an outdoor fire fixture is a great way to get more enjoyment out of your backyard or patio all year-round, regardless of the temperature.
