Pool house with beautiful outdoor fireplace

Outdoor Fireplace and Kitchen

My husband, Keith, and I walk in the evenings through our neighborhood as well as some adjacent ones, and I’m often amazed at some of the outdoor living spaces we see—welcoming porches, tranquil decks, stunning outdoor kitchens, and even gorgeous outdoor fireplaces. Today we’re looking at creative outdoor fireplace designs. These creative outdoor fireplaces warm up your outdoor living area and set the scene for a cozy, relaxing outdoor retreat.
