Creating an outdoor space that includes a fireplace can be a great way to spend time outdoors. Outdoor fireplaces have become more and more requested as outdoor living has increased in popularity in the last few years. Fireplaces are a great way to add warmth and charm to any home.

Are outdoor fireplaces worth it?

Homeowners have found creative ways to safely spend time with their loved ones. One of those solutions has been morphing indoor spaces into outdoor spaces, and one of the most popular items has been the installation of outdoor fireplaces. In this blog post, we’ll explore some ideas on how to create the perfect outdoor space with a fireplace.

Outdoor fire pit or fireplace?

First, let’s look at the different types of fireplaces you can choose from. Fire pits are a great choice for a backyard oasis, allowing you to gather around the fire for conversations and laughs with friends and family. If you’re looking for a covered space, a custom built pavilion with a fireplace is a great option. Not only will it protect you from the elements, but it will also provide some warmth and comfort on those chillier nights.

Outdoor living is unique to each home and can include the complete construction of an additional custom patio, a pavilion to protect you from the elements, an outdoor kitchen and/bar area, and almost always, an outdoor fireplace. Most homeowners will never go without the addition of a custom fireplace that can be fitted perfectly into any outdoor space.

Where should an outdoor fireplace be placed?
