Outdoor Fireplaces vs. Fire Pits
Before you decide which feature is best for your backyard, you should understand the basic differences between outdoor fireplaces and fire pits to make the right choice for your home.
An outdoor fireplace will look much like the fireplace in your home—complete with a hearth and a chimney. Grand and stunning in appearance, fireplaces make a more dramatic statement in your yard. A fire pit is usually an open structure that can be round, square, or any other shape you prefer. The top of a fire pit is open to the air, making it perfect for gathering around and roasting marshmallows.
Materials for Outdoor Fireplaces & Fire Pits in Montgomery County
You can build an outdoor fireplace or fire pit with almost any material you can imagine, including:
- Stone – Stone (slate, limestone, granite, etc.) is beautiful, versatile, and complements essentially every style of home.
- Brick – Brick is a classic material that will never be outdated and is simple to maintain.
- Cast iron – Cast iron is extremely durable and perfect for rustic settings.
Cast iron is one of the most common materials used for fire pits, but we’ve also built many full fireplaces (some more than 10 feet tall!) made of brick or stone. Each material has its own advantages, so your choice depends on the look you want!
The material you choose for your outdoor fireplace or fire pit will depend on your desired structure, size, design, and budget. Have a smaller backyard? A fire pit is probably for you. Want to make an impression on your guests? Go with an elaborate outdoor fireplace instead.
