As you’ve begun to sit outside on your patio this year, you’ve been imagining ways to improve its appearance and make it even more enjoyable. Having an extra space outdoors to entertain or just hang out with family and friends betters your quality of life and saves energy, allowing you to lower your utility bill. You may have seen the new trend of having an outdoor fireplace or fire pit on a patio, and The Cozy Flame installs custom outdoor gas fire pits that will perfectly work with reimagining your patio for the new look of your dreams.

The outdoor fire pit, a very popular look in patios today, can be imagined in all sorts of patio settings, and we’ve found a few ideas from reputable home decoration online magazines to help you on your quest for the perfect fire pit for your patio. Once you find a look you like, contact us at The Cozy Flame, and we will be happy to get you started on the design process today.

House Beautiful

In this backyard oasis designed by Toni Tobin, she accents a stone outdoor fireplace with a unique chandelier of candles that is attached to a tree and can be lowered and raised by a pulley. All of this natural light gives off a soft glow around tables and seating for outdoor dining and entertaining.


This design shows that enclosing a side of your patio with a stone wall that includes a grill — The Cozy Flame carries a large selection of Wilmington Grills that can be built into a stone wall enclosure — with a sink and bench seating. Flanked by an outdoor fireplace or fire pit on one side and a cedar pergola on the other, this patio fits all of your entertaining needs.

Better Homes and Gardens

Recommending a firepit to toast marshmallows with your kids or to warm your family on your patio all through the year, Better Homes and Gardens suggests the addition of a fire pit to your patio area creates the perfect gathering spot for your family and your guests.

Country Living

If you are reimagining your patio as something completely different, this idea may inspire you. Installing a large, stone fireplace instantly adds a beautiful focus to this area, and enclosing your patio as a screened-in room gives you the versatile option of indoor/outdoor living.

Southern Living

For a simple update, this canopy patio is anchored by the addition of an outdoor fireplace, or you could choose a fire pit instead, if you prefer. To get this look, a 10-foot-wide by 30-foot-long iron pergola was installed over the patio, and wisteria was planted to grow into the leafy canopy overhead.

As you can see, outdoor fire pits and fireplaces are essential pieces in reimagining your patio, and The Cozy Flame is experienced with guiding many through this journey of realizing the patio of one’s dreams. Contact us today, and our consultants will get back with you to show you what we have in both state-of-the-art grills and custom outdoor gas firepits and get you started on making your patio reimagination a reality.
