Outdoor Fireplace or Fire Pit?
Some areas in Silver Spring have ample space, while others are somewhat cramped. The space you have in your yard is the first thing to consider when choosing between a fireplace or a fire pit. A fireplace is usually somewhat narrow, vertical, and only open on one side, but most firepits need quite a bit of space all the way around them for safety.
The second consideration is cost. While both options can be extravagant or bare as you choose, an outdoor fireplace is going to cost more than installing an outdoor fire pit in Silver Spring. Why? Outdoor fireplaces are usually larger structures that take more materials to build.
Outdoor Fireplace & Fire Pit Materials Common in Silver Spring
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 in Silver Spring, 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Brick fireplaces will never be outdated and are simple to maintain.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 of your space, your budget, and your ultimate vision. Do you want stone built-in seating? Or a place to store dry wood?
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!
