    Envision your Kansas City home’s yard bathed in the warm, ambient glow of mesmerizing, dancing flame. This picturesque scenario is possible with the strategic and expert implementation of fire features.

    Fire features have been a growing trend in outdoor living design. They bring a captivating element of fire, with both heat and light, to your exterior spaces. Apart from their enchanting beauty, fire features also serve as a dynamic focal point for social gatherings, and bring a deeply comforting warmth to cool KC evenings. These features can extend your outdoor living season considerably, and can even contribute to increasing the value of your home.

    While the design potential is endless, here are some of the most common features in our area. Use these as inspiration to create a fire feature that uniquely and distinctively you, with the help of High Prairie Outdoors.

    Fire Walls

    One of the most dramatic and honestly, breathtaking, options in the realm of fire features is the firewall. This ultra-modern installation sets your outdoor space apart, providing a simply spectacular setting of flames dancing behind a secure, transparent shield. Fire walls blend striking design and robust heating ability into one feature. They can also act as a windbreak or noise buffer, helping provide comfort zones and weather protection for your guests.

    Using Fire Features as Spatial Dividers

    The spatial division is another great way to leverage fire features. They can help create more distinct zones within your yard, without the stark and often inconvenient use of walls or fences. Imagine a fire pit marking the boundary between a bustling outdoor kitchen area, and a relaxed dining or conversation area. This enhances both spaces by giving them the room to accommodate the people who need them.

    Boulder Features

    Some homeowners want a far more natural aesthetic, and boulder fire features are a superb choice in these cases. They effortlessly merge with the landscape and help maintain the original charm of the terrain. The blend of stone and flames is rugged, rusted, and still sophisticated. This adds nearly indefinable elements to your Kansas City outdoor gatherings.

    Ground Plane or Sunken Features

    Sunken features and conversation pits were a feature of some lavish 1970s architecture that many people are eager to bring back, and the popularity of ground plane and sunken fire features are proof. Sunken into your yard, patio, or deck, these features offer a very unique visual appeal, as well as an intimate gathering spot. The flames are at eye level when seated, fostering closer connections and more meaningful interactions between guests, and cultivating a more engaging environment overall.
