    Types of Outdoor Fireplaces

    Some of the most common types of outdoor fireplaces you can choose from include:

    Fire Pits

    One of the most common types of outdoor fireplaces available is a backyard fire pit. Fire pits are available in a wide selection of sizes and styles, making it easy to find the perfect fit for your outdoor space. Most types of fire pits are developed for aboveground use and can be either built in or portable.

    What should you take into consideration when building a fire pit?

    Fire Bowls

    While fire bowls are similar to fire pits in functionality, they offer a higher level of transportability, as they tend to be much smaller in size and more lightweight. Fire bowls can also be used in areas where fire pits or outdoor fireplaces are not allowed because they are completely self-contained.

    Fire Columns

    Fire columns are distinct outdoor fire features that combine the most effective qualities of both fire pits and fire bowls. Fire columns also have the added benefit of a slim design, which means that they use up much less room than fire bowls and are ideal for small patio spaces.

    Fire Tables

    One of the most distinct outdoor fireplaces available is the fire table. These specially made tables are designed with both function and aesthetics in mind, as they can be used as both a table and a fireplace. Fire tables are available in an almost endless range of styles, from rustic to contemporary.

    Outdoor Fireplaces

    Outdoor fireplaces are the ideal solution for homeowners who want to add warmth and security to their outdoor space. Similar to an indoor fireplace, an outdoor fireplace can be built using a wide range of different materials. Outdoor fireplaces are also weather resistant to stand up to all seasons and are available in both portable and built-in options.

    Fire/Water Features

    If you are looking to create a focal point in your yard, a fire/water feature might be the best option for you. Fire/water features work to combine a small fireplace with a small water fountain, creating a classy centrepiece that will draw in the eye.
