Outdoor gas fireplaces provide a unique, cozy gathering area for your outdoor living space.

Outdoor gas fireplaces are an increasingly common feature in backyards everywhere, and with good reason. They provide a cozy and unique gathering place for friends and family, help extend the appeal of an outdoor living space well past sundown, and offer the convenience of gas as opposed to wood. With an array of options to choose from, the perfect outdoor gas fireplace for you is surely well within reach.


Inspirational Outdoor Fireplace Design Ideas

The first step in determining which outdoor gas fireplace is right for you is to decide if you want to purchase a pre-assembled fireplace, a customizable kit, or to have your outdoor gas fireplace created entirely from a concept of your design.

There are advantages and disadvantages to each approach. A wholly assembled fireplace affords the convenience of little or no assembly, plus portability, but it may be difficult to match to the existing design of your outdoor space. A partially assembled kit may allow for more customization on your part, but it will also require more assembly from a handy homeowner. Finally, a fully customized fireplace constructed from scratch will allow for the closest interplay between its design and your existing design, but it'll likely cost you a pretty penny.

Another option that many manufacturers of outdoor gas fireplaces are offering currently is a "customizable kit." This may come as a fairly simple-looking fireplace design, with very little adornment at all. The homeowner can then add brick or other stone design to the face of the fireplace in order to match the home or outdoor space. Alternatively, the homeowner can purchase pre-assembled designs with common brick or stone designs already included. This range of choices normally means that most homeowners can find the outdoor gas fireplace design they're looking for—or the customizable option they can then decorate to match their desired style—without too much trouble.
