Fireplace extends the use of outdoor living spaces from summer to the fourth season. Unlike fire pits, outdoor fireplaces define your terrace or deck as a focal point and destination for gathering places, making recreational activities, entertaining and making memories. Fireplaces range from cheap chiminea and portable metal models to homeowner do-it-yourself kit projects to beautiful fire features that are part of the open space designed by landscape architects and built by contractors.
And here you sit with an empty backyard, save for a gas grill on your terrace. You have plenty of time to stop thinking about the fire pit and start building a fire pit. Luckily for you, the design of the fire pit has evolved in an extraordinary direction and you can be as simple or fancy as your time and budget.
Outdoor patio with a warm fireplace
Fireplaces usually conjure up images sitting inside a fireplace, breathing warm drinks. However, thanks to modern ingenuity, outdoor fireplaces are as popular as indoor fireplaces. Now on those colder nights, you don’t have to leave the terrace to enjoy the traditional fireplace.
Outdoor fireplaces tend to be built from three main ingredients: stone, brick, and plaster. Some styles mix these ingredients. Look below for some of the top outdoor fireplace designs on each material. You might be inspired to install it yourself.
This open space is full of inspiration to help you create a charming and relaxing holiday in your own backyard.
