Fire Pits With Flair
An outdoor fireplace can make your patio feel warm and cozy. With so many selections available, you can easily find a fire pit that fits your personality and adds ambiance to your outdoor space. Here are five stylish outdoor fireplaces that will give your patio extra panache.
Classic outdoor fireplace
This outdoor patio fireplace from National Fire Pit ($180) will quickly become a popular gathering spot at your next backyard bash. With elegant mesh on all four sides, this fireplace provides maximum heat and light. The design is clean and modern with an Asian-inspired flair. The straight lines on the fireplace gate are balanced by curves on top and bottom.
Fireplace with chimney
If you're concerned about wayward smoke, check out this firehouse with a chimney from National Fire Pit ($200). A large chimney helps control smoke and exhaust. A removable ash tray on the bottom also makes for easy cleanup. This traditional fireplace design looks great in an outdoor living room accessorized with weather-resistant patio furniture and an outdoor rug.
A stunning accent for any patio, this copper firebowl with scroll accents from Home Depot ($100) looks gorgeous even when not in use. The copper basin sits on decorative wrought iron legs, giving the fire pit a feminine, girly feel. Paired with a wrought iron patio set, the firebowl becomes a chic, stylish centerpiece.
Slate and marble fire pit
This circular fire pit spotted on Amazon ($166) has high-end design elements for a bargain price. The slate and marble tilework is highlighted with inlaid copper accents, giving it extra sparkle. The fire pit easily becomes an entertaining hot spot when combined with a marshmallow roasting set ($22). The stone surround comes in handy for keeping cups of cocoa warm and also can be used as a foot rest when not in use.
Fireplace with storage
We love the storage space that comes with the Saratoga fireplace from Target ($150). A unique feature for an outdoor fireplace, the decorative storage box on the bottom keeps wood and supplies within easy reach. The top has a protective cover, which also helps keep the fire pit clean when not in use.
