Outdoor Fireplace

Outdoor Fireplace Materials

Compare brick, stone, stucco & concrete outdoor fireplaces

The most popular materials used for facing outdoor fireplaces are brick, stone, stucco and concrete. All of these materials are durable outdoors and will hold up to the heat the fire produces. You should make your decision based on the style of your home and your personal tastes.

Material Options:

Brick fireplaces are appropriate with traditional or country style homes and gardens.

A stone fireplace is suited for traditional and rustic homes. If the stone is cut it will have a more formal appearance.

Stucco fireplaces are popular choices for homes and gardens inspired by the southwest.

A concrete fireplace can take on many forms; however, they are typically used in modern designs.

The overall goal is to make sure your new outdoor fireplace fits in its surroundings. By selecting a material that coordinates with your home's exterior or existing paving you will create a cohesive appearance. A successfully designed outdoor fireplace will feel like it has always been there
