Techo-Bloc fireplaces make it possible for NJ homeowners to enjoy more time in their outdoor living spaces. Regardless of what time the sun sets or how much of a nip there is in the autumn air, an outdoor fireplace can illuminate and warm up the night, setting the tone for a memorable evening with the ones you love most.
While Techo-Bloc fireplaces are beautiful enough to make a statement on their own, though, you may still be looking for a way to create a truly fun and unique space with your outdoor fireplace.
Today’s post will provide you with some inspiration for putting your Techo-Bloc fireplace someplace surprising yet practical.
If Techo-Bloc fireplaces are so sophisticated and attractive, why would you need to come up with a plan for a unique and exciting design?
Homeowners who take pride in being completely original will find that it’s very important to map out a design schematic that will help their properties to truly stand out.
In addition to fulfilling a personal need, doing so can help to draw a lot of positive attention towards your property and could ultimately increase the value of your home as a whole. In order to achieve these objectives, of course, you need to make sure that your layout makes good sense for your property and will allow you to get the most out of your Techo-Bloc fireplace.
By the Water
The idea of fire and water may initially seem a little crazy, but Techo-Bloc fireplaces being situated next to a swimming pool and/or jacuzzi actually makes a whole lot of sense.
Numerous homeowners have gotten a whole lot more value out of both their swimming pools and their fireplaces by setting them side-by-side. When placed in a pool shelter area, your poolside guests can lounge in warmth and comfort while your swimmers can enjoy a nice, warm spot to dry off.
Fireplaces also help to regulate outdoor temperatures for those who are enjoying a nice soak in a hot tub. On top of everything else, Techo-Bloc fireplaces look amazing when situated next to the water, as the dancing flames will create spectacular reflections in the night.
We absolutely love the idea of constructing an outdoor living space, complete with Techo-Bloc fireplace, that is either partially or entirely below grade.
We’ve seen numerous NJ homeowners create outdoor living areas with multiple levels. For example, an outdoor kitchen and dining area may be at grade level, with a slightly recessed seating area where a fireplace is situated.
The steps leading down to this area may even double as “stadium” style seating around the fireplace. Another great way to go this route with your landscaping and fireplace layout is to consider constructing an outdoor living space that is entirely below grade.
Here, a staircase may lead down to a stunning space that has been built into the side of a hill. Your Techo-Bloc fireplace will be the centerpiece of this area, creating a great deal of warmth and joy.
Within the Bar
Tired of paying a cover fee every time you want to watch the game at your local bar? Wouldn’t you rather just hang out and have a few drinks with friends within the comfort of your own home?
A growing number of NJ homeowners are making the decision to construct full wet bars in their outdoor living spaces – complete with a beautiful outdoor fireplace.
Techo-Bloc fireplaces can add to the style and sophistication of your bar while creating a much more inviting place to kick back, drink a brew and cheer on your favorite team.
In the Front (or Side) Yard
Who says that an outdoor fireplace can only be situated in your backyard? Sure, backyards are great for small, intimate gatherings, but a Techo-Bloc fireplace deserves to be seen by everyone.
Whether you simply like the idea of making a bold statement by placing Techo-Bloc fireplaces in your front or side yard, or these areas are simply roomier and more practical for housing a fireplace, you can have a lot of fun with the design and layout.
Some of our favorite placements for these uniquely located fireplaces are along the sides of front driveways and walkways, or adjacent to courtyards and front patios.
No matter where you choose to place the fireplace, you can be sure that it will make a big impression on your guests and will improve the value of your home.
In the Corner
It’s true that “nobody puts Baby in the corner”, but have you ever thought about placing your outdoor fireplace in a corner? Techo-Bloc fireplace kits are available that can fit into a corner space, allowing for a truly unique aesthetic and a fun vibe for everyone.
The corner fireplace allows for an open seating area in an intimate and cozy space. We like the look of fireplaces with bench-style seating on either side, angling out from each edge of the fireplace. The seating can even double as a space to store firewood for easy access and convenience.
Because NJ homeowners are choosing to spend so much time in the great outdoors, they’re finding the needs to build multiple “rooms” or outdoor living spaces within the scope of their landscapes.
Everything from outdoor kitchens to outdoor dining spaces and even outdoor sitting or living rooms help to offer all of the comforts of indoor living while still allowing you to enjoy nature and the fresh outdoor air.
Situating a Techo-Bloc fireplace between two distinct “rooms” or areas can help to create a clear boundary or dividing line that will add to the overall appeal of the space.
