Dallas Backyard Fire Features are a HOT commodity!

Covered patio

The demand for professionally designed and built outdoor living spaces in the Dallas and Southlake areas shows no sign of slowing down, and, in fact, homeowners are showing increased diversity in regards to the features they want. Nowadays, homeowners see their yard as an extension of the inside of their home, and they are increasingly seeking ways to convert their backyards into comfortable living spaces if it means they can spend more time there.

Outdoor fire features such as outdoor fireplaces and fire pits provide the diversity, coziness and ambiance homeowners are seeking in their outdoor living spaces. Not only do fire features make a stunning focal point within an outdoor living space, but they also make a perfect accompaniment to a patio, deck, covered patio or in unison with an outdoor kitchen.

The Desire for Outdoor Living Amenities Grows Nationwide

The American Institute of Architects reported that requests for outdoor living structures have increased for the sixth consecutive year. That information was included in the AIA second quarter 2017 Home Trends Design Survey. After all, what would a living room be without the inclusion of a cozy fire feature? Just as our interior living room spaces enjoy a fireplace, our outdoor living rooms wouldn’t be quite complete without a fire feature.

In a recent post from that cited which outdoor features will boost home values the most. Two of the most popular structures mentioned were barbecue stations and fire pits. With regard to fire pits, they noted few things more satisfying than roasting marshmallows over a fire pit’s crackling flames. Our clients would probably agree. In the Dallas and Southlake areas, fire pits are very popular.

Here at Archadeck of Northeast Dallas-Southlake, we pride ourselves in creating unique, one-of-a-kind outdoor living spaces that complement your home and elevate your outdoor enjoyment. Take a look at some of the custom backyard fire features we have created for our happy clients:

Las Colinas, TX, Custom Pergola and Outdoor Fireplace

These homeowners’ patio was already in place, and our job was to build an outdoor fireplace at the edge of the patio and a large cedar pergola for shade overhead.

Outdoor fireplace

We built the wood-burning outdoor fireplace with Oklahoma chopped stone topped with chocolate Lueders stone for the hearth, the mantel and the angled pieces. The 45-degree angles and the picture framing above the mantel accentuate the fireplace and represent a Chapel fireplace design. The back of the fireplace is tied into the patio’s existing retaining wall.

Rockwall, TX, Covered Patio with Outdoor Fireplace and more!

Fenced in covered patio

This outdoor oasis in Rockwall encompasses multi-functional structures and was planned in dual phases. The first phase of this design began with the addition of the covered patio featuring a custom stone seating wall and outdoor fireplace. This second, and final phase, of the project entailed the addition of two custom cedar pergolas flanking either side of the covered patio connected by a pergola-styled breezeway across the back.

Archadeck of NE Dallas-Southlake used Oklahoma Flagstone to build the wood-burning fireplace and the seating wall that extends around the covered patio on this project. The top of the stone seating wall is covered with a smooth Leuders limestone in chocolate. The simple, elegant fireplace mantel is made of walnut.

Outdoor Kitchen & Fireplace Space in Euless, TX

For this project, Archadeck of NE Dallas-Southlake extended the homeowners existing patio with brushed concrete. In addition to the added outdoor living space, we also designed and built a custom outdoor kitchen with a grill top and bar area and majestic custom stone fireplace. There is even a spot above the fireplace’s mantel for hanging a flat screen so the homeowners can enjoy endless movie nights, sporting events and their favorite TV shows — don’t forget the popcorn!

Outdoor fireplace

The stone used to build the bar in the kitchen area and outdoor fireplace is all chopped Oklahoma stone with integrated Autumn Brown masonry bricks to match the home. We used native Lueders stone for all the horizontal surfacing.
