Fall Is the Best Time to Redesign Your Fire Features: Tips from a Fireplace Designer in Seattle, WA

There’s nothing like a good fire, outdoors or in! Fires are relaxing, provide warmth and fill the air with a wonderful smell. If you’ve been considering redesigning any of your fire features, including fireplaces, fire pits or natural outdoor stoves, fall is the best season in which to do it!

Here are just a few of the reasons why you might consider redesigning your fire features during the fall months:

  • The weather is right: The air is starting to get a little cooler, which means you’re about to be using your fire features more often than you had been during the summertime. While there are plenty of people who regularly use fire pits during the summer, it’s the fall months where fire pits get their most use, and where fireplaces begin to get their use as well. You’re going to want to have your redesign complete before you begin using these features regularly throughout the cooler fall and winter months!
  • You’ll need maintenance anyway: It’s important to give your fireplaces and fire pits regular maintenance. For fireplaces especially, it’s likely been many months since you last used them. There might be a buildup of soot that you need to get rid of, or there might be other issues that you need to address, such as potential leaks or ventilation issues. You are going to need to have maintenance performed anyway, so what better time than now to do the redesign you’ve been considering? You’ll have the newly designed fire feature you’ve been waiting for, while also taking care of any lingering maintenance issues you’ve been putting off.
  • You may need the warmth: If you live in an older home that uses a wood-burning stove for warmth, for example, you might rely on your fire features to help heat the interior of your home. This is especially true for log cabins and other country homes, especially those that act as second homes or vacation houses for their owners. If your current fire feature is not giving you the warmth you want or need, a redesign might be necessary to ensure it is in tip-top shape.
  • You want a new look: Perhaps you just aren’t pleased with the aesthetic of your fireplace or fire pit, and want a fresh appearance. If this is the case, there’s no better time than fall to get your redesign done. You still have a little bit of time before you are going to regularly use your fireplace, so you may as well get the redesign accomplished now.
