Deciding between the fire pit and fireplace can be an important decision when creating an outdoor room or lounging space. Both features will extend the pleasure of an outdoor living area by providing light, warmth and relaxation.

Important differences that should be considered include:
  • How many friends and family will be utilizing the fire-space regularly?
  • Outdoor fireplaces are romantic, and perfectly suited for intimate chats and long hours of conversation.
  • Fire pits are perfect for accommodating larger groups who are engaged in lively conversations across the fire with 360 degree views available.
  • What mood are you wanting to inspire or convey with the space? 
  • Fire pits encourage social engagement such as storytelling, marsh mellow roasts and laughter-- whereas outdoor fireplaces invoke more wistful memories and feelings.
  • Fire pits maximize your views, and social events, while outdoor fireplaces serve as an artistic and cozy focal point for your outdoor living space.
  • High winds can interfere with fire pit function, while outdoor fireplaces provide gorgeous, highly functional wind breaks.
  • Smoke from wood burning fireplaces go up into the chimney, while wood burning fire pits can have smoke that gets distracting.
