You don’t have to spend a large amount of money or take out a second mortgage on your home to spruce up your backyard. A simple addition of a fire element can cost just a few hundred dollars and completely change the look of your home. This not only makes your yard more pleasant for you and your guests, it can also add value if you decide to sell your home. The following ideas are some inexpensive ways to add a fire or water element to your home so your outdoor living area is just as pleasant as your indoor living space.
A fire pit is one of the most popular fire elements for homeowners. A fire pit adds ambience, and is a great source of heat when you want to entertain guests outside on a chilly evening. A fire wall that holds a few fire bowls is also a great choice. You can also add fire bowls to an existing in-ground swimming pool to add a contrast to the water and bring the scene together.
There are a few ways to add value to your home with a water element. A gorgeous fountain is a great aesthetic choice. If you’re looking for something more practical, hot tubs can be used year round and provide a place to relax with friends and family. If you have an existing pool, you can add lighting to the pool, either in the water or surrounding the pool, to draw the eye to the water.
Unite Fire and Water
There are also options to unite fire and water in your outdoor living area to add a dramatic effect. And again, these elements do not have to cost a fortune. Fire and water bowls are a good choice, and are safe for both children and pets. But remember that even the safest features are not fool-proof, so you will still need to supervise the little ones around these features.
