Whatever your ideal night, adding the cozy comfort of an outdoor fire feature can complete the evening.

Outdoor Fireplace or Fire Pit?
Before you choose which feature is best for your backyard, you need to understand the basic differences between outdoor fireplaces and outdoor fire pits.
An outdoor fireplace will look much like the fireplace in your home—complete with a hearth and a chimney. A fire pit is usually an open structure that can be round, square, and any other shape you desire! Here the top is open to the night air, which is perfect for roasting marshmallows, hot dogs, and any other campfire treat you may have in mind.
Outdoor Fireplace & Fire Pit Materials
You can build an outdoor fireplace or fire pit with almost any material you can think of including:
Cast iron and copper are often used for fire pits, while we’ve built many full fireplaces (sometimes more than 10ft!) made of brick or stone. Each material has its advantage – no one is better than the others. It all depends on what you want!
Brick fireplaces will never be outdated and are simple to maintain. Stone fireplaces are beautiful and complement any style of home. Stainless steel is the most weather resistant and is very low-maintenance. Copper and cast iron fire pits are extremely durable and are perfect for rustic settings.
The material you use for your fireplace or fire pit will depend on the structure you want, the size, your personal design tastes, and your budget. Have a smaller backyard? A fire pit is probably for you. Want to make a grand statement to your guests? Go all the way with a majestic outdoor fireplace.
Though a fireplace (or fire pit) is great in an outdoor kitchen, you don’t need a full kitchen to enjoy a large outdoor fireplace. It is the perfect addition to your patio if you simply enjoy sitting outside almost all year round. It doesn’t matter if you want a large brick fireplace with chairs and tiki torches surrounding it or a beautiful stone fireplace that matches the stone retaining wall lining your patio – your new outdoor fireplace will bring your outdoor living space to the next level!
