Let us warm your heart and home

No matter the season, you can spend time in your backyard. But let’s be honest.  There’s no denying the feeling in the air when you know fall is around the corner.  Fall is a glorious time of year that allows Brazos Valley homeowners a chance to really enjoy their backyard spaces. With the cooler evenings and nights, it’s the perfect time to sit out on the patio, make a nice fire, and just enjoy the presence of your family. Here at College Station Covered Porch and Outdoor Kitchens, we must admit we have a few favorites when it comes to fire features. We understand that every home is different and our favorites might not be yours, but here are two fire features that we absolutely love.

Gas Fire Pits

If you are a bit more adventurous, a gas fire pit might be a great option for you. They are plumbed with gas lines which provide fuel for the fire. They are usually adorned with a top layer of stone, ceramic “logs”, or even special glass pebbles that glow as the fire flames up through them. This is a great fire feature that will have your friends and family talking. While gas fire pits are usually more expensive than simpler wood-burning options, once you experience their beauty and ease of use, you will likely find them to be worth every penny!

Outdoor Fireplaces

The second, and most involved option, is the outdoor fireplace. Built to resemble a traditional indoor fireplace complete with hearth and chimney, outdoor fireplaces are permanent structures usually constructed from stone or brick. They can be built into a covered patio or free-standing, and either gas powered or wood-burning. An outdoor fireplace perfectly merges the charm of gathering fireside with the excitement of a natural outdoor setting. Trust us, there is nothing like curling up before an outdoor fireplace with a mug of something hot and tasty!
