Outdoor Fireplace Ideas

Since the beginning of time, families and friends have gathered around fires for companionship, dining, and entertaining.

As the patio and garden evolve into outdoor entertainment rooms, many people are looking for ways to add outdoor fireplaces, fire pits, or fire bowls to their outdoor spaces.

Before you purchase your outdoor fireplace, there are some things you should think about.

Outdoor Fireplace

Consider what you want from your outdoor fireplace or fire pit. Are you looking primarily for heat to take the chill off the evenings so you can enjoy your outdoor space for more of the year? Are you mainly looking for a fire everyone can gather around for socializing? Do you also want the ability to cook over the flames of your fire?

A fire pit in or on the ground gives a real campfire feel.  Outdoor fireplaces and fire pits that elevate the fire bowl place the fire closer to eye-level viewing yet usually low enough to see over from a seated position.

Do you want to be able to visit easily with people sitting on the other side of the fire? If so, you will probably prefer an outdoor fireplace or fire pit that you can see over when seated.

If you think you might want to take your outdoor fireplace anywhere, then an outdoor fire pit or fireplace that you can move may be more appropriate for you.

Some have wheels, others are lightweight enough to move easily, and some even fold for portability and come with carrying cases.
