Evaluate the Space
Outdoor fireplaces come in just about any style and size you can imagine. The first thing you need to do is evaluate the deck, patio or pool area where one is needed. You may fall in love with a massive fire bowl, but if it is going to get in the way of foot traffic or generate too much heat for the space it will pose safety risks and can make guests uncomfortable.
Choose a size that is appropriate.
It is helpful to have an idea of where you want to place the fireplace as well. An open corner is always a great location for a small area. If your outdoor living space is extremely small, don’t assume that you have to go without. Tabletop fireplaces are ideal! Some are even large enough that they can easily be placed on the floor as well.
Choosing a Style
The selection of outdoor fireplaces is far greater than most people are aware of. It is important that you choose a style based on the décor and furniture you have. You may fall in love with a rustic style, but if you have contemporary pieces, it will become an eyesore.
If you want one that you can cook on, choose a fire pit with a grate. For a classic look, go with a chiminea. If you have the space to accommodate a fire bowl, they offer a dynamic focal point. If you have a smaller space, or you are looking for an environmentally friendly option then tabletop fireplaces that burn gel or biofuel are ideal.
