Outdoor Fireplace Ideas For Your Backyard

There's something about the sound of a crackling fire that just makes you want to slow your pace and enjoy life. The same holds true for outdoor fireplaces as they are also great sources of entertainment and relaxation.

So if you have a backyard and love spending time outdoors all year round,  then an outdoor fireplace should be on the top list of your design ideas. Installing a fireplace in your backyard will make you feel at home. It will  create a warm and cozy atmosphere, allowing you more time to enjoy the beauty of nature while sitting around with friends and family. They can be placed near the house or nestled further away, but in either case, they'll add an inviting element that makes guests feel right at home when they visit. Patio Pelican has some great ideas to help you choose your perfect outdoor fireplace. 

1. Outdoor Wood-Burning Fireplaces

If you want to make the most of your backyard space, consider installing a wood-burning fireplace. This is an excellent option for those who love the look and feel of a roaring fire—providing both warmth and ambiance without dealing with the dangers associated with open flames.

Unlike other outdoor living space accessories, a wood-burning fireplace not only offers a unique, traditional, and natural focal point to your backyard but also offers a pleasant and distinct aroma from burning wood that you, your family members, and your guests will love.

2. Outdoor Gas-Fuelled Fireplaces

If you don’t want to give up the appeal of a wood-burning fireplace, but are looking for an easier-to-use, less time-consuming fireplace, look no further than Gas Fireplace. The artificial wood in gas fireplaces has an impressively authentic and realistic look while adding much-needed ambiance to your outdoor living spaces. With realistic ceramic logs and embers in our collection of gas fireplaces, you still get to enjoy the look and feel of a traditional, natural-looking wood-burning fireplace.

An outdoor gas-fueled fireplace resembles a wide array of indoor fireplaces as it has a façade and structure to it. These fireplaces are typically linear-styled, stationary structures that are attached to a permanent gas line. They are very convenient as they allow users to quickly turn on/off or adjust the flame height/heat output. 

If you are sensitive to the smell of smoke, the gas outdoor fireplace is also one of the best and safest options while enjoying the cozy warmth and inviting ambiance of a fireplace. If you have children or pets in your home, this is a much safer option.

3. Outdoor Electric Fireplaces

Whether you are looking for a fireplace that offers warmth and a romantic ambiance or are interested in a fireplace that is extremely fuel efficient, an electric fireplace is the new technology of choice. Electric fireplaces offer some advantages over their traditional counterparts, furnaces, and wood-burning stoves. Not only do they improve your outdoor living space's aesthetic value, but they also make it much more comfortable too. 

Electric fireplaces are by far the simplest method to integrate when it comes to enhancing your home entertainment layout. Major renovations are necessary in order to add a classic wood-burning fireplace, which will be costly and intrusive to your everyday life. An electric fireplace, on the other hand, is a straightforward device that only needs an outlet to work. It's a one-step procedure! You only need to plug it in, and you're ready to go.

Smoke is typically associated with fire, but not with electric fireplaces. These cutting-edge innovations emit no smoke compared to a regular or traditional wood-burning fireplace. Traditional fireplaces can pose some risks to your health and the environment if they are not installed properly or worse if you don’t know what precautions to take!
