manhattan beach - outdoor patio


What Houzz contributors are saying:

6. Find a focal point. The fireplace in this yard is the center of outdoor activities, thanks to its large-scale presence. If you're on a budget, a fire pit could work well too.
Lily Gahagan added this to 50 Great Designs for a Garden Party
A fireplace makes a wonderful focal point around which the party can revolve.
Wood or gas-burning: when to choose what. A wood-burning outdoor fireplace has that campfire romance going for it — you can't roast hot dogs in a gas fireplace! Also, installing a wood-burning fireplace is a simpler (and often less expensive) process.On the other hand, gas fireplaces are easier to use, which is ideal if you plan to spend a lot of time around yours. Also, some areas may have environmental restrictions in place limiting wood burning, so be sure to check with your city before committing.Wood fires can have health consequences, too, so consider your neighbors when placing one, or choose a gas fire pit.

emmasturgis added this to Design Elements of A Rustic Patio or Deck
last Monday
The patina that will develop over time on metal adds another distinctive style element. Search for special deals from Design Furnishings and browse your local secondhand stores to find outdoor furnishings with character. Well-chosen cushions will ensure comfortable seating and add splashes of color.
