Outdoor vs. Indoor Fireplaces: Which is Right for You?

HomeBlogOutdoor vs. Indoor Fireplaces: Which is Right for You?

Here at Pisgah Insulation & Fireplaces, we offer a wide range of both outdoor and indoor fireplaces to suit a variety of tastes. While many homes had multiple fireplaces in the days before central heating, in the modern era many homeowners only have room for one, so the choice of whether to get an indoor or outdoor option matters. In this article, we’ll go over some of the relative benefits of each type to help you decide which is right for you.

Indoor fireplaces also make for great family gatherings

  • Outdoor Fireplaces. Outdoor fireplaces are popular as focal points for outdoor entertaining. They make a great place to gather with loved ones and are typically built at table height or below in order to not hinder the views of your guests or your landscape. Also called fire pits, outdoor fireplaces offer a lot of flexibility in terms of design, but their placement also means that they are limited in terms of how much warmth they can provide.
  • Indoor Fireplaces. Indoor fireplaces also make for great family gatherings, as they offer a lovely visual component and a great backdrop for conversation. In addition, since they don’t have to fight the elements, indoor fireplaces are able to provide more heat. While the design of the room can put some limitation on designs for your indoor fireplace, our team at Pisgah Insulation & Fireplace can still create something that suits your individual tastes and ties the whole room together. Lastly, because the flame is contained, indoor fireplaces offer more safety from stray sparks than their outdoor counterparts.

We at Pisgah Insulation & Fireplaces hope that this information has been helpful to you. If you are interested in our outdoor or indoor fireplaces for your home, just give us a call.
