Outdoor Fireplace Ideas to Gather Around

Nothing brings people together like a fireplace. Outdoor fireplaces can turn patios into four-season gathering places.

Outdoor fireplaces can be either permanent or portable. While portable outdoor fireplaces can be moved to add warmth to multiple locations, permanent outdoor fireplaces — such as this handsome outdoor fireplace that's combined with a teak dining table — offer an extra degree of luxury and style to your outdoor spaces.

Common outdoor fireplace materials include stone, stucco, tile and brick — plenty of options that allow you to match your backyard or deck's overall design. Outdoor fireplaces can burn wood or offer the convenience of gas fuel.

See the following outdoor fireplace ideas — featuring designs from modern to rustic — and get ideas for a space that fits your style.
