As summer comes to an end, there are still many days to be enjoyed outdoors by having a year-round backyard retreat. There are a number of ways to create an elegant space that functions as comfortably as indoors. Utilizing this space increases your home value and maximizes the use of every square foot.
WHERE TO START
Think of your backyard as an extension of the indoors. For example, extend color pallets, furniture style, and fixtures to the outside. Take the overall look and consider the amount of square footage available. Designing around these will help guide in the steps to create a cohesive extension of your home. In addition, focus on the intention of the space, and how it will be utilized on a daily basis.
Make amenities easily accessible by including an outdoor kitchen, sink, refrigerator, or fireplace. By anticipating expected use and considering space, make life easier by having indoor conveniences readily available. Include comfortable lounge furniture for additional seating to create an inviting atmosphere.
When adding furniture and amenities space plays a major factor in the overall layout. Keep in mind walking room and daily use before buying appliances and furniture. The two should complement each other in order to create an open and inviting environment.
MADE TO LAST
Investing in a year-round space for your home increases the overall value. In the event that you plan to sell, having a well designed and functional outdoor space will increase equity and potential buyers’ interest. With this in mind, plan to purchase items of lasting quality versus quick fixes. As a result, you’ll have a relaxing environment that potentially pays in the future.

Choosing between wood burning, gas, ethanol, and electric can be confusing. The following information will help you choose which fireside is best for you.
Most will agree, the ambiance of a natural wood burning fireplace is picturesque, and is hard to beat. However, wood-burning fireplaces require more in maintenance, cost, and are not energy efficient. 90% of heat for wood burning fireplaces goes out the chimney leaving only 10% to heat the room.
In addition to being inefficient, wood burning fireplaces tend to cost $190 annually, while electric and gas firesides run on under half the cost. Yearly chimney cleaning is needed to prevent creosote excess and fires. Wood burning emits much more pollutants into the air.
GAS AND ETHANOL FIRESIDES
Gas and ethanol firesides produce heat with much lower emissions compared to woodburning fireplaces. These firesides produce up to 99% fewer emissions. Both gas and ethanol firesides cost about $60 annually to run and do not require annual clean up of ashes and soot in the chimney.
Typically gas inserts have gas lines and will need to have pressure checks from the main gas supply. Ethanol inserts, on the other hand, do not require this in most cases. Between the two, gas firesides produce more heat than ethanol. Ethanol hearths are ideal for small spaces that are not the primary heat source for the room.
For both inserts, simply turn a switch to ignite flames that produce a warm ambient glow. These hearths turn off with ease making it possible to leave the premises without the worry of a fire burning.
These fireplaces are the cleanest and release no pollutants into the atmosphere. Inserts annually cost about $25 a year and do not require vents. Electric firesides convert all they produce into heat. While gas and ethanol units have various safety features, electric are cool to touch making them very safe for small children and animals.
DESIGN AND BUILDING CODES
When thinking about installing a fireplace each style comes with permits and codes to follow. For a traditional wood burning fireplace, you’ll need a permit from your local government. Unlike many new inserts, wood burning fireplaces have a number of codes that must be met. This would include; chimney standards, flue, opening requirements, and more.
Some gas/ethanol inserts can be (depending on the insert) installed without a permit. When remodeling, inserts are often your only option since traditional fireplaces require much more structural preparation.
When it comes to the design of the room, it’s important to think about the purpose and the location of the hearth. Traditional wood burning firesides work in small/large rooms but are least efficient in producing heat. Ethanol fireplaces are typically used in smaller spaces. Gas inserts heat mid to large sized rooms. Electric firesides are used in spaces grand or small depending on the size.
Trinity Fireside provides various inserts to fit your specific needs! Contact us today to see which fireside works best for you!
MORE THAN A DOOR
Some would consider a garage door to be another expense that does not provide equal value, but garage doors yield a number of benefits that far outweigh the cost. For example, an enclosed garage provides a layer of protection for your vehicles against weather and potential burglaries.
In addition to protection, garage doors increase curb appeal which raises the overall home value. In most cases you get what you pay for. Cheap garage doors usually reflect the cost. This results in a decrease in desired home value.
Your investment in a well designed garage can save money in the long run. Thermal insulation will aid in the reduction of energy needed to cool and heat your home.
Curb appeal greatly increases the monetary value of a home. Many realtors, designers, and architects would agree that the outdoor appearance makes a world of difference in equity. When designing, take into consideration the intended use of your garage. In addition, consider the elements your door will encounter over the year. Garage doors are usually made of wood, steel, vinyl, fiberglass and aluminum.
Steel doors are known for aiding energy efficiency and durability, while a vinyl door is ideal for locations with intense sun or high salt spray. When thinking about aesthetics, aluminum works with contemporary homes that allow natural light into the garage. Wood doors pair beautifully with various materials and can be painted or stained for a more natural look.
When choosing a door, know the design of your home, and then choose a style that will coordinate. Well designed homes take the overall style and use the garage door to enhance that look. Designing a 1950’s home may fashion a traditional or carriage style door while modern homes with clean and simple lines normally use aluminum. After determining the look, choose from single and dual color doors as a finishing touch.
Garage doors have options for insulation to aid energy savings. Double and triple layer doors by Amarr provide a steel exterior and interior (triple layer doors only) with insulation in the center. By having a well insulated garage, it can help to maintain the temperature, and reduce operating noise level.
Having an attached garage can help minimize the transfer of outside air into your home increasing energy savings. For homes with a room above the garage, having insulation will reduce temperature fluctuations to prevent higher energy bills year-round.
Your garage door is an investment in curb appeal, energy savings, protection and more! Contact Trinity Fireside today for your new garage door! https://trinityfireside.com/steel-garage-doors/

TIPS TO CREATE THE PERFECT OUTDOOR KITCHEN
With a plethora of designs and products, there’s a world of opportunity to create your backyard kitchen. Start by asking what you want in an outdoor space. Maybe your desire is to have the ultimate gameday grill area or a quaint retreat for two. Think about your specific needs and future plans to build an area that fits you.
Take into consideration the layout and space. This will aid in the design process and will help to narrow down which items will work best with your square footage. For example, a large space with an owner that plans to host parties may want to have a large grill, sink, fridge, and TV. While some with smaller spaces who intend to cook for two may desire a portable grill with a small fireside and fan. Either way, depending on the need and use there are options for all! (Click to see different design styles.)
With the rise in demand for outdoor living products, there’s no longer a need to compromise your style. There are a number of firesides, grills, furniture pieces, and outdoor kitchen appliances to choose from that are both high quality as well as a statement piece!
THINGS TO CONSIDER
Before getting carried away, it’s vital to remember the current structure of your home. When choosing a grill, for example, you may be restricted to electric due to HOA rules in a condominium. Others may not have a gas line and will have to decide on either installing for a gas hook up or using propane tanks. Think about what works with your space, and what is involved with each choice. Know your guidelines and zone in on a product from there.
Decide what kind of features will work with the design in mind. This can include; an outdoor fridge, fans, heaters, counter space for food prep, and more! Each space will have different features depending on the use. When investing in an outdoor getaway, try to anticipate future needs. The avid griller may require multi-surface grilling with a rotisserie, fridge, and outdoor sink. While a family designing for an outdoor pool cabana may want a small fridge, fan, and grill area.
Grills can range from $150 to around $10,000! If you’re planning an outdoor kitchen and your entire budget is $10,000 then you may want to consider a grill and appliances that will work within your desired budget. While having a spending limit is ideal, keep in mind that you get what you pay for. Remember, you’re creating an outdoor dream kitchen that is an investment in your home, so try blending your budget with quality in order to have the best long term result.
