Before you start creating your outdoor fireplace area, you’ll need to put some thought into the design details and the atmosphere you want to create. The following are some questions to ask yourself:
1) How will you use the outside living area?
Are you looking to create an intimate environment or more of a fun social setting?
2) Do you prefer more of a traditional brick fireplace or more of an circular open pit style?
Traditional brick fireplaces can give off more of a formal feel whereas a round open pit fireplace is more social and fun.
