Both an outdoor fireplace or a fire pit will provide a lot of enjoyment for not only you and your family, but also add to the ambiance for evening backyard gatherings. They can add light, heat, and an interactive experience that really enhances your time spent outdoors. After all, there’s nothing quite like sitting by the fire.

Should I Choose a Fireplace or a Fire Pit?
While outdoor fireplaces and fire pits both add the appeal of fire to your outdoor space, they are different structures that provide quite different experiences. If you’re debating a fire pit vs. fireplace, there are a few things to keep in mind as you narrow it down. The first question we would ask when we come to your home for a consultation is, how do you plan to use the space? The answer to that question helps narrow down the best choice for your yard and your family. While there are similarities between these two fire features, there is an overall different “experience” that each provides.
You sit primarily in front of it as opposed to around it.
- It makes a bit more of an elegant architectural statement on your property.
- The smoke is directed up and out a chimney or through a vent, rather than smoke blowing freely like a fire pit
- It takes up less space on your patio as it can be built on the edge.
- It can be incorporated into the design of a pergola or patio cover, mixing stone with cedar for a very elegant feel
- If it is built in conjunction with a patio cover, it can be used even in rainy weather.
You gather around a fire pit, therefore it’s more interactive.
- You can create seating on all sides, which makes it the perfect centerpiece for conversation
- It creates the feel and fun of a family campfire
- Can be built near a pool to add a decorative flare
- Depending on the style, can be more cost effective than an outdoor fireplace
