Outdoor Fire Pit Ideas

1. Scenic View

This is a gorgeous spot for relaxing and enjoying a cozy fire pit! Taking on a more scenic view, you would definitely be left alone in this setup – free to take in the sights and sounds of nature. If you have a lot of space or property you are working with, having a fire pit at an outer edge facing trees or woods like this can add a fun element without much effort. The fire pit does all the work for you with its soothing, crackling flames and gorgeous surroundings!

2. Domed Fire Pit

Domed Fire Pit

Here’s an interestingly shaped fire pit that comes to a dome peak at the top. The unique shape of this fire pit will add intrigue to any garden or outdoor space. Even if you have minimal decoration or a theme, this fire pit is classy enough to stand on its own or can easily be integrated into almost any setting. The brushed paint at the base of this pit looks a bit rustic and should be able to stand up to the elements given its thick, sturdy structure.

3. Charcoal Pit

Here’s a gorgeous fire pit that can easily utilize charcoal instead of wood. Although some may prefer the smell and pops of a crackling wood burning fire pit, this fire pit is a cleaner version of a fire pit. The flame may even be automatic in this fire pit, being easily switched on by a button or remote control. Whatever the case, this is a great setup for a patio area or outdoor garden patio. Add some interesting and comfortable chairs to surround the fire pit for a more inviting look.

4. Best of Both Worlds

This modern patio setup utilizes both a barbecue pit and a fire pit. This fire pit looks like it could burn both charcoal and wood, but given the closer proximity of the ceiling, the safer bet would more than likely be charcoal. If you do have a fire pit under a patio area, be sure only to burn a thinner layer of charcoal or just a few logs of wood to prevent any fires and accidents.

5. Walkout Patio

Here’s a gorgeous walkout patio with a stylish fire pit right in the center. This patio looks like it could even be a balcony setup, what with those gorgeous treetops in the background. Adding some comfy chairs like the ones pictured will add a sense of ease and relaxation. Since this is open air with no ceiling to worry about, you could easily use several large logs to create an extra warm fire without worrying about any mishaps.

6. Backyard Gazebo

Here’s a gorgeous walkout patio with a stylish fire pit right in the center. This patio looks like it could even be a balcony setup, what with those gorgeous treetops in the background. Adding some comfy chairs like the ones pictured will add a sense of ease and relaxation. Since this is open air with no ceiling to worry about, you could easily use several large logs to create an extra warm fire without worrying about any mishaps.

7. Brick Fire Pit

This great brick fire pit stands as the focal point of this backyard scene. It’s a larger fire pit that is constructed to remain in one spot. You can easily build your own fire pit by using these types of bricks and concrete. You can purchase large or small bricks and match them accordingly to your outdoor décor. See how the bricks of the fire pit match the brick accents on the patio floor? Absolutely gorgeous!

8. Stone Fire Pit

This fire pit has utilized moss covered stones to naturally give this setup a wild look. Flat stones like the ones depicted would definitely be a safer rock to use than more rounded stones, but whatever rock you prefer, just make sure the whole setup is steady. You wouldn’t want a makeshift fire pit to topple over and throw burning coals all over the place. The grate on top of this fire pit looks like it could have come from an old barbecue pit, so as you can see, you can easily refurbish an old barbecue pit to make something like this!

9. Tiny Fire Pit

This tiny fire pit is just a piece of this grandiose backyard scene. It almost may seem to just blend into the scenery, but rest assured, come nightfall this little fire pit will be the star of the show. The gorgeous cut out shapes on the metal pit will glow into the night long after all the wood has burned down. Even the smallest glowing embers will look fantastic peeking out of these fun shapes. This goes to show that you don’t necessarily need a huge fire pit in order to enjoy one.

10. Cozy Cabin

This looks like a scene straight out of a mountain cabin escape. You can easily create your own picturesque scene by either having a brick fire pit made, or by conducting your own research and building one yourself! Imagine sipping coffee on one of these lounge chairs during an early morning fire and looking out on this beautiful, snowy landscape? It’s absolutely dreamy.

11. Modern Gazebo

This looks like a scene straight out of a mountain cabin escape. You can easily create your own picturesque scene by either having a brick fire pit made, or by conducting your own research and building one yourself! Imagine sipping coffee on one of these lounge chairs during an early morning fire and looking out on this beautiful, snowy landscape? It’s absolutely dreamy.

12. Modern Landscape

Another modern gazebo layout, this scene looks like something straight from the future. The interesting gazebo shape and covering makes this look like a peaceful, yet interesting escape from the outside world. The fire pit is also that funkier chimney shape that we saw in the previous photo. This is a great way to siphon out the smoke and prevent it from getting into anyone’s eyes or affecting anyone who is sensitive to smoke. This is truly a gorgeous setup that will have guests talking about it for days.

13. Wicker Fire Pit

This is a gorgeous log cabin sitting perfectly in the middle of the woods somewhere. The criss-crossed wicker pattern around the fire pit gives this whole scene a more rustic feel. The marbled counter around the fire pit is a good way to prevent anyone getting too close to the fire without creating an obstructive barrier. This would be a great fire pit to have in a home that has children or a home that has pets.

14. Fire Bowl

This is such a fun and interesting design! This fire pit looks more like a large, wide fire bowl. With a fire bowl like this one, you can easily find any color you’d prefer or an assortment of colors in the bowl that would match with your outdoor décor. I love these little stump stools around the bowl, but of course this is easily adjustable and customizable as well. Given the area, you could add some interesting (and maybe a bit more comfortable) outdoor chairs or loungers.

15. Flagstone Fire Pit

This flagstone fire pit is not only sturdily constructed, but looks absolutely fabulous. Flagstone naturally gives off that rough and cut feeling while adding a generous layer of class. This shorter fire pit would be a great addition to an outdoor patio area or a corner garden. It would stand up to the elements – including rain and snow – since it is all made of flagstone and not a material that easily rusts like aluminum or metal.

16. Waterfront Fire Pit

This gorgeous scene utilizes a floor fire pit right at the water’s edge. How relaxing is this gorgeous setup? I can just imagine watching the sunset over the water, sipping on a cocktail and soaking in the gorgeous nature around me. The floor fire pit is an interesting concept and is totally safe since it’s sunken in. The Adirondack chairs in the photo also add so much character to the scene. The natural wood in these loungers just amplify the surrounding nature.

17. Propane Fire Pit

Here is a clean burning fire pit that utilizes propane instead of the old fashioned wood or coal burning fire pit. This is perfect for anyone who doesn’t want to deal with excess smoke or wood. This fire pit is simple to operate and looks incredibly modern. The slate mantel around the fire pit gives it a classic look while adding some interesting texture to the setup. The wood in the pit is not actually wood, but it definitely could pass for it.

18. Fire Column

This fire column also uses propane instead of wood and fire. Its interesting shape is a great way to add a fire pit to a more modern outdoor or garden scene. It looks more like a chimney than an actual fire pit. The body of the fire column holds the propane tank, so it’s out of sight and conveniently stored within the column itself. This is a clean, hassle-free version of a standard fire pit that has a polished, modern look perfect for a patio.

19. Contemporary Fire Pit

This contemporary fire pit almost looks like a split globe. The polished nickel and steel setup makes this fire pit so interesting to look at and would look great in any backyard or outdoor setting. This fire pit can burn traditional wooden logs, so that can add a more authentic feel to the fire pit even though the structure itself is very modern. This would look great on a deck area or balcony area that has enough ventilation to air out the smoke.

20. Fire Box

This unique fire pit looks like a box sitting in this modern scene. The box is actually made of stone, so the polished look remains safe from the flames spurting out the middle of it. This interesting fire pit goes great with those equally unique chairs surrounding the pit. This would be a perfect scene for a weekend getaway with old friends or a mountain retreat for a young couple. Whatever the gathering, this would be a perfect setup for a relaxing time.

21. Stone Pit

The gorgeous stone pit matches the paved floor beneath it with this great neutral cream color. Set a ways away from the house, this fire pit is easily found via the path of stones leading up to it. This is a great scene for someone who doesn’t want to have to worry about the smoke smell filling the house or worry about a family member that has issue with smelling smoke. This is a gorgeous setup that invites anyone to wander down the path and see the pit for themselves.

22. Gas Fire Pit

This gas fire pit is a gorgeous way to add some style to a modern atmosphere. Another bowl shaped fire pit, this fire erupts over these smooth, neutral colored stones for a look that is absolutely stunning and modern. This is another mess-free, worry-free version of a fire pit that combines the best of both worlds without the worry of cleanup or smoke inhalation. This would even be a great fire pit for a covered area or a closed off section of a yard.

23. Backyard Fire Pit

Here is a classic version of a backyard fire pit. Built from stone, this fire pit is sturdy and its structure will last for a long, long time. The pit itself add a cozy feel to the scene, but what makes this whole setup incredibly relaxing is this great patio furniture surrounding it. You can easily give the ambience a more relaxing feel or a modern setup by adding some interesting patio furniture and decoration. A pit like this makes the scene open for versatility.

24. Platform Fire Pit

This is an interesting and unique setup – the fire pit (which kind of resembles a fire bowl) is atop a gorgeous tiled platform surrounded by a brick separation wall. This is a great way of adding décor to an area specifically for a fire pit. With so much texture in this area, it’s hard to imagine needing anything else for an area as stylish as this one.

25. Inset Pit

This fire pit is inset with the retaining wall behind it. This is a great way to add that extra element of style and décor without distracting from the scene as a whole. This would be the perfect scene for backyard barbecues with family and friends. I can also imaging this would be a lot of fun for those long summer nights toasting marshmallows or enjoying a cup of hot chocolate in front of it around winter time.

26. Fire Table

This design is exquisite and entirely elegant on its own. This is a fire pit that doubles as a table – hence the name fire table. It features a gorgeous marble or stone table surrounding the flames so guests can rest their cocktails or beverages around the fire. This kind of setting just promotes conversation and good time among friends. It’s an elegant scene that does not require too much added decoration if it’s not wanted.

27. Architectural Design

This design is something out of a modern architecture magazine. It’s contemporary, versatile and entirely different. Almost as its own structure, this fire pit features bulky, sturdy features with a strong base, grill rack and wide side table surface. This would be a perfect addition to the home that likes to enjoy a lot of outdoor cookouts or enjoys entertaining outdoors. You don’t have to use this fire pit as a grill, as it would better fare as décor only, but it would be anise addition to a patio that already has an outdoor grill.

28. Retaining Wall Fire Pit

This is a beautiful way to have a retaining wall with an added fire pit. So many levels of décor here and so many opportunities to decorate the space however you’d like. Since this scene seems to be on the edge of a cliff or hill, the view is absolutely breathtaking. The colorful chairs in this scene add a level of contemporary style that is posh and stylish. This would be the ideal setup for having a small, classy gathering.

29. Poolside Pit

Here’s an interesting concept – a fire pit virtually in a pool feature. This completely unique design is an awesome way to integrate summer fun splashing in the pool with the added class of a roaring fire pit. If you wanted to stand out from the rest of your friends homes, this is the way to go. It’s a great concept that is so wonderful to look at, I can only imagine how great it looks in person. The sound of rushing water and blazing fire would entrance the sense while enthralling the mind.

30. Dome Pit

This is fire pit that is inset to the floor, but utilizes a brick half-dome to surround it. This is a great way to prevent the wind from snuffing out the fire or causing more smoke to snake into the patio area. Since this scene is near an ocean, that ocean breeze would be killer to any fire pit. This is probably an added precaution for the fire, but it looks really stylish too. A fire pit like this would be easy to maintain and can withstand even the harshest sea breezes.

31. Set the World on Fire

This stunning globe shaped fire pit is one of the most unique things I’ve ever seen. The use of negative space where the continents are really makes the fiery blaze pop against the stark darkness of the metal sphere. This is a great way to make a fire pit safe and contained while also adding that wow factor to your backyard or lakefront property.

Outdoor Fireplace Ideas

32. Garden Fireplace

This is a gorgeous idea for an outdoor garden fireplace. This design is unique in that it’s virtually a fireplace for an outdoor garden area. The covered area of this patio will not be affected by the fire since this fireplace has a chimney-like structure that will easily siphon all the smoke out of the vicinity. The wood and brick combination in all this décor is versatile and looks magnificent.

33. Summer Backyard

The perfect summer backyard setup is obvious in this picture. You have your glorious fireplace and a matching barbecue  for added enjoyment. This setup is relaxing and lets you ease into the dog days of summer with style and grace. The plant life, bricks and furniture in this photo all seem to mesh effortlessly and would be the perfect layout for any backyard patio area.

34. Statuary Fireplace

This massive stone fireplace is stately in this scene. It’s huge, glorious and absolutely stunning. The stones used in this structure look old, which gives this fireplace an antique look. This also proves that structure like these can withstand the elements and the test of time. Adding modern furniture to the scene will mix up the feel of the décor if having an antique themed backyard area isn’t your immediate goal.

35. Outdoor Living Room

This picture pretty much resembles an outdoor living room. The fireplace itself resembles a fireplace that you’d find inside a home. Bring that family room outside for added fun with this amazing fire pit and décor setup. Everything in this photo looks so sleek and stylish, yet adds a level of comfort thanks to tiny attributes such as the striped cushions and plants.

36. Luxury Fireplace

This luxury outdoor fireplace stands stoic on this patio area. All the brick work in this photo play on each other to create an elegant scene. The criss-cross pattern of the tiled floor next to the aged light stones that make up the fireplace all add so much texture and intrigue. You could expect to see a scene like this outside a country club or outdoor wedding venue.

37. Summer Barbecue

This would be the perfect summer barbecue area! The fireplace itself could be used as a barbecue pit, I believe. So many of these fireplaces can double as a cooktop, but always be sure that your fireplace can be used as such before actually cooking on it. This scene is the perfect area for a picnic area. Add some tables and chairs, and you have a family outdoor dining room.

38. Social Setting

This patio area is the perfect setting for a social scene. The fireplace almost acts as an afterthought to the scene since it’s so far in the background, but the point is that this fireplace will still be crackling and burning through some pretty fun gatherings. The sounds of fire in these fireplace is almost as soothing as gazing upon the flames themselves and can act as entertainment on its own.

39. High Structured Fireplace

This modern fireplace features a long backboard that extends well beyond the fireplace itself. This adds a level of intrigue and a contemporary feel to the area. The dark gray polished stones in the scene also add a posh look that would require minimal extra décor. The groomed bushes in the planters on either side of this fire pit brings color into the scene without taking too much away.

40. Backyard Kitchen

This backyard kitchen is a great way to hold outdoor cookouts to cater to large groups of people. The massive brick fireplace blazes quietly in the corner while adding so much character to the whole scene. I can imagine plenty of family gatherings out here with loads of conversation and laughter. The more detailed you get with the fireplace, the more interesting it can be.

41. Contemporary Deck

This outdoor fireplace almost resembles an oven. The wide door at the front and stainless steel, polished look makes this an interesting fireplace that looks as if it could easily be maintained. This deck scene is truly gorgeous in that the view is spectacular, as is the surrounding chairs and overall décor. This proves you don’t need too much decoration when you have a decent view to enjoy.

42. Traditional Garden Patio

Here is a traditional garden patio setup, complete with adorable stepping stones to lead the way up to the fireplace. This looks like something you’d stumble upon in the middle of the woods. This quaint garden setup is also a perfect example on how versatile the addition of a fireplace can be. You don’t need a lot of expensive décor to surround a fireplace, since the scene is serene enough on its own.

43. Corner Fireplace

This contemporary patio features a fireplace built into the corner. The area is cozy, with benches extending outward from the fireplace and decorative outdoor cushions strewn about. The block-like fireplace adds an interesting conversation piece to an already unique scene with contemporary furniture. The side garden in the photo also makes the area feel very well in touch with nature. This would be a perfect outdoor area for a small family or contemporary couple.

44. Romantic Garden Getaway

Have a romantic getaway as close as your backyard with a beautiful patio like this one. These long, elegant pillars add a feeling of renaissance-era romanticism along with this blazing outdoor fireplace. This is a scene that feels as cozy as an indoor living room could be. The flowering vines and abundant plant life helps make the area full of wonder and gives off a whimsical feel. The garden chandelier is an added bonus that matches the outdoor fireplace perfectly.

45. Stone Arches

This patio fireplace features glorious stone arches that fit into this scene perfectly. This same type of stone is used throughout this patio area, which allows the eye to move effortlessly from one section of the fireplace to the other. Being a rather large fireplace area, you’d need to be sure to have enough space to accommodate such a stately outdoor structure. The fire rack in the middle of the fireplace adds an extra accent that is reminiscent of an indoor fireplace.

46. Outdoor Den

This is an amazing setup that almost looks like a den – just outdoors. The fireplace, the TV and the furniture all suggests this would be inside a home, but it’s not. The outdoor living room space is made cozier by the fireplace and the fact that it is all outside. A family could easily enjoy the great outdoors with all the added comforts of home through this amazing living space.

47. Small Space Fireplace

Make the most out of even the smallest outdoor space by utilizing a fireplace as a centerpiece. Since fire pits and fireplaces come in so many different sizes, it’d be easy to add one to an outdoor area without much of a hassle. In this scene, a small fireplace is used in the background of what appears to be a deck social setting. This photo demonstrates that you don’t need a very large area in order to entertain. You just need the right accents.

48. Rustic Porch

Here’s a beautiful rustic porch that looks like you’d find it in some kind of upscale resort. You could easily recreate an area like this in your own outdoor area by adding an outdoor fireplace and appropriately themed furniture. Although the fireplace in this scene is gigantic, you could easily scale down to fit your tastes and needs. Stick to that lodge feel by adding an abundance of wooden elements.

49. Lower Fireplace

Here’s an outdoor area that features a lower fireplace right along the back area. Resembling a fireplace shelf, of sorts, this long paneled fireplace brings an elegance to this outdoor area. Since there are so many attributes to this particular outdoor scene, the fireplace in this setup becomes another accessory instead of the focal point. Whether you want your fireplace to be the center of attention, or simply an addition to a greater scape, you can easily accomplish both scenarios.

50. Gas Fire Panel

This gas fire panel is a contemporary way to add a fireplace into your décor without taking up too much space. Inset within this large, brick retaining wall, the fire shelf fits in perfectly without too much distraction or bulk. This is a modern look that would be a perfect setup for sipping cocktails on this patio area or enjoying some intimate conversation around the fire feature.

51. Fire and Water

The incorporation of fire and water results in a truly enigmatic scene that is sure to captivate anyone who has the pleasure of being immersed in these two elements. This outdoor fireplace roars on as the serene, still waters of the pool smoothly flow beneath it. The sound of the crackling wood and calm, flowing waters is sure to delight all your guests and create an intimate setting.

52. Smokestack

This grandiose outdoor fireplace has it all. Not only is the design gorgeous and unique, but there is a nifty firewood shelf built right into it. This will save you time and space when it comes to cutting or gathering wood for this feature. The large smokestack adds an industrial feel to the whole area and is sure to create some interesting conversation when hosting a party or gathering.

53. Outdoor TV Room

This room seems to have all this fun stuff in one area. The TV, fireplace and comfortable couches are all perfectly set to create an inviting space that has something for everyone. I can’t imagine watching a TV when you have a gorgeous, blazing fireplace to watch, but if that’s just not your thing, you also have the TV option for entertaining.

54. Porch Chimney

This outdoor fireplace is more like a porch chimney with that massive smokestack funneling the smoke away. The chimney is made all from brick, but because of its smooth cut, looks almost like steel or something that was polished. The matching wood box next to it is unique and makes the whole area look organized and clean. The matching lounge chairs are a great added touch.

55. Southwestern Patio

This patio looks as if the entire thing is made from adobe. Rustic and purely created with the heart of the southwest in mind, this fireplace is delightful. The smooth yet slightly flawed build of the stove and surrounding walls makes the scene look very old. The bumps and grooves of the bricks and clay brings an authenticity to the patio area that would be perfect for a home in the desert or for someone who wants to bring the desert to their home.

56. Tall Fireplace

You can’t miss this tall fireplace. This guy is huge! These massive bricks that created this tall chimney are gorgeous in themselves with all that natural color and texture. To see them create this giant, impressive chimney is spectacular. This is the perfect type of outdoor fireplace for a home in the mountains or a home that endures some pretty chilly weather. You’d stay warm for days with this awesome fireplace!

57. Outdoor Pizza Oven

The only thing you need to know about this idea – pizza oven. That’s right. There is a pizza oven included in this massive fireplace. Amazing! Think of all the great parties you could host with your very own outdoor pizza oven. Plus, think of all the money you’d save on delivery! Pretty sweet! If the pizza oven aspect wasn’t enough incentive to get on the ball and start building, just look at the structure! Everything about this scene is gorgeous.

Fire Pit Landscaping Ideas

58. Back Patio with Fire Pit

When it comes to building a landscape around an area with a fire pit, you could easily create a wonderful space by using the same kinds of bricks or stones you’ve used in the construction of the actual fire pit. This idea demonstrates how clean an area can look just by paving the area around the fire pit. Plus, odds are you will have leftover bricks, so this is a great way to put those to use.

59. Vintage Patio

What makes this patio vintage? Just look at all this picturesque, old stonework. The textured stones look weathered and can really add that vintage feel to any patio area. The rippling water feature resembles a babbling brook that coincides well with the vintage style fire pit in the center of the scene. Stones also line the garden areas which makes this scene true to that vintage style.

60. Garden Beds with Fire Pit

Another great way to use extra bricks or stones from an outdoor fire pit, make some matching garden beds. Even if you don’t have leftover stone and have to buy more of the same – this is never a bad idea since it looks great and timeless. Or, you could easily mix the whole scene up by mixing and matching bricks to your liking. The possibilities are endless with this idea!

61. Fire Pit Circle

This abstract scene is full of texture. From the pebbled great big circle to the straight wooden panels – there is so much to look at in this photo. You’d almost overlook the great fire pit right dab in the center of the whole thing. I bet this scene would look amazing at night once the fire pit is lit and all these great colors and textures can meld together.

62. Circles upon Circles

The fire pit is the center of this interesting landscaping design. The outer circle features flowers and plants, which slowly snake their way into the gravelled area, which gives way to the circular fire pit in the middle. This is a great play with shapes and can make your garden area look that much more polished and elegant with this obviously well thought-out gardening plan.

63. Stone Garden Floors

This looks like a scene straight out of “Downton Abbey.” Never seen it? That’s ok – all you need to know is you should expect plenty of garden parties with teas and little cakes in a setup like this. Not only is it absolutely stunning, but it has that classy look that would withstand whatever garden trends the times are going through. The great water feature is quite the spectacle, but I’m sure once twilight settles in, that perfect little fire pit is the burning star of the show.

Outdoor Fire Pit Seating Ideas

64. Retaining Wall with Chairs

This delightful little stone fire pit is adorably concealed by this matching stone retaining wall. Adding wooden lounge chairs beyond the short retaining wall is a great way to add an interesting element to the whole scene without taking anything away from the actual fire pit. The retaining wall could also double as a great foot rest for those colder winter nights by the fire.

65. Steel Chairs

These steel chairs add an interesting spin to this outdoor fire pit scene. They look more modern and can easily be moved, if need be. The fire pit in the center is stationary since it’s made out of bricks, but the chairs are completely mobile and interchangeable. This would be the perfect kind of patio furniture for adding or taking away depending on the number of people you’re hosting.

66. Marbled Patio

This gorgeous chimney style fire pit sits atop a great marbled outdoor patio floor. The floor is catching the light from the flames and glowing magnificently from it. This whole scene is exquisitely elegant and beckons for people to gather around it. The cozy patio couch also beckons for some late night conversation and good times. Although a marbled outdoor patio floor may require a bit of upkeep, it’s totally worth it – as evident in this great photo.

67. Balcony Fire Pit

This fire pit sits on a balcony facing the ocean. These great patio couches with throw pillows add so much character to the whole scene and an extra bonus for all facing the ocean. When you have an outlook like this you don’t need a lot of fluff to make a space interesting. All you need is this view, and of course, this pretty great little fire pit to keep you warm.

68. Smooth and Sleek

This smooth stone garden patio holds some great lounge chairs, some swanky patio couches and a beautiful fire shelf. With all this sleek design, your outdoor area will look perfectly posh and modern. You could expect to find a scene like this outside a jungle hotel resort or somewhere deep into a tropical forest. I can almost hear all those tropical birds calling out to me.

69. Slats and Lines

So much shape and line work to this outdoor setup. The varying direction of all these wooden slats gives this fire pit patio an interesting look while maintaining a classic feel. The natural wood color and the added stone fire pit makes all this texture feel cozy and inviting instead of distracting. Adding decorative plants and outdoor safe throw pillows is a great touch when you want to incorporate some color to the mix.

70. Garden Fire Pit Area

All the things in this great landscape point to that perfect fire pit in the middle. The fence, the lining trees, the plants and wooden deck area all seem to present the fire pit in all its splendor. This is a great design idea when you don’t have a very large space to work with and you want to have a focal piece – like this fire pit. Adding all the plants to a scene like this also helps make it feel fresh and interesting.

71. Perfectly Polished

I love the look of smooth stonework. This fire pit sits on a smooth stone patio and is even adorned with a matching smooth stone rim. It is an elegant scene that incorporates the fire even in the lighting. The stones seem to bring out the glow of the fire and bounce it out to create this luminescent hue all around the outdoor area. This would be the perfect place to hold a cocktail party or small get together.

72. Urban City View

This is a great outdoor design for incorporating a fire pit patio in an urban city. Just because you live in the suburbs, doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a great fire pit from time to time! This idea completely embodies that idea by building a great, comfy social area all around this fire pit. The string lights and funky, green patio couch cushions are some of the best parts of this scene.

73. Curved Benches

When you have a retaining wall around a stone fire pit, you might as well build a bench around it! All the brick work in this setup is absolutely beautiful, and by adding a few interesting throw pillows here and there, you have a great scene ready for entertaining. The stairs leading down to this sunken in style patio is an added element that creates depth and class.

74. Sunken Fire Pit

This incredibly contemporary design features a sunken in fire pit. The all-white exterior makes this scene look polished, classy and completely modern. To change up the space, add some varying colors in the accenting throw pillows or even some throws to place outside so you can get extra cuddly around this great fire pit. The interior of the building behind the fire pit looks like a studio, so this would be a great, swanky place for creative minds to meet and network.

Conclusion

As you can see, there are so many great ideas for incorporating a fire pit into your outdoor area. Whether you have an existing fire pit area that you want to spruce up or are looking to create a whole new scene, the possibilities are truly endless.

Feeling more modern or more vintage? Prefer a fire pit or an outdoor fireplace? Whatever you prefer is entirely possible, especially when looking at great ideas like these.
