Outdoor fireplaces may appear similar to fire pits, but are quite different in certain aspects, although they do serve the same purpose in enhancing the outdoor living space while providing a centerpiece. Both wood-burning and gas models are available, and the different fuel types may determine some of your design choices, such as placement and overall height of the fireplace.
One perk of an outdoor fireplace that a fire pit is unable to deliver is wind protection. Not only is an outdoor fireplace easier to light in windy environments, but it also provides wind protection and blockage for those trying to get cozy by the fire. On top of that, it’s perfect for those who prefer less smoke, considering it directs smoke upward and away from your guests and is much less likely to produce flying embers.
As with fire pits, we also have the ability to customize outdoor fireplaces. This allows us to create something each homeowner will love for years to come.
