Warm Up Your Backyard With an Outdoor Fireplace

The Year-Round Yard: 4 Outdoor Fireplaces to Keep You Toasty

4 Outdoor Fireplaces That Look Great in Any Backyard

Outdoor fireplaces provide a gathering area for families to warm up and enjoy company. Some can be used for cooking, while others are mainly aesthetic. Outdoor fireplaces offer beauty and functionality year-round, no matter the style.

Traditional Fireplaces

Traditional outdoor fireplaces resemble fireplaces people use to heat their homes. The outdoor versions tend to be on a larger scale, featuring bigger mantels and detailed masonry. The most popular designs are classic, modern, southwestern, and Mediterranean. Like indoor fireplaces, they can be fueled with gas or wood.

Outdoor Kitchens

Outdoor kitchens are a stunning example of form and functionality. Modern amenities like grills and broilers are built into a stone island, which often features a bar top and seating. Some outdoor kitchens are fully equipped with a fridge, sink, and dishwasher. Outdoor kitchens with a stone pizza oven provide both a place to cook and beautiful architecture.

Fire Pits

Fire pits reflect simpler times spent roasting marshmallows around a campfire, though they can be anything from unassuming to remarkable. Fire pits are fueled with wood, propane, gel, or natural gas. They come in a variety of styles, like copper bowls, stone or brick built-ins, and tabletop pits. Fire pits can be used for aesthetic purposes and open-flame cooking.


Chimneas are an inexpensive way to add a focal point to a backyard area or garden. These self-contained outdoor fireplaces provide visual interest and a place to warm up. Chimneas are usually made of cast iron or clay, and some can be used for cooking, provided they're big enough.
