What are Outdoor Linear Fireplaces?

Jun 12th 2019

There are many different styles of fireplaces and sometimes they can be confusing for people buying their first fireplace. Should you look for an indoor fireplace or an outdoor fireplace? Is a linear gas fireplace better or should you go with a traditional wood burning fireplace? There are many questions that can be asked in regards to this.

One of the growing trends in outdoor living is outdoor linear fireplaces. These fireplaces have become very popular in many different types of places, both commercial and residential. But what are these fireplaces and why are they so popular? Today, we will take a closer look at this growing trend.

Outdoor linear fireplaces are rectangular fireplaces, styled similarly to a gas fireplace, that offer a contemporary look and fit perfectly in an outdoor space. Linear fireplaces can be installed with other building materials right up to the glass, meaning they can be easily inserted into a wall or placed at a corner of the room.

Many times, these fireplaces can line an entire wall, connect two rooms or even be linked between an indoor and outdoor setting. There are so many different ways you can plan a design around a linear fireplace and the best part is that it doesn’t have to take up space like a traditional fireplace where design options are limited.

Outdoor linear fireplaces can come in many different sizes ranging from three feet to 21 feet or more. They offer a great amount of heating capability, making them perfect for an outdoor space that you want to enjoy as temperatures become a little brisk in the early spring and late autumn months. Linear fireplaces can also come with safe-touch glass, keeping you safe from the heat source.

Using gas for a fireplace can also offer some added convenience. These fireplaces can power up in an instant. With just a flip of a switch, you can have a roaring fire going and start to warm up or just enjoy the relaxing look. It helps that these fireplaces also offer a very realistic look, whether you are using logs, glass or stone.

We often see linear fireplaces and don’t even know it. If you have ever been to an establishment that had a fireplace behind glass placed within the wall or an outdoor fireplace that was part of a patio setup and located in the wall, then you have seen a linear fireplace and likely been drawn to it. Maybe you have been to a neighbor’s and seen an outdoor fireplace that they have and wondered about getting your own.

Just like with an indoor space, a fireplace becomes the center of attention in an outdoor living space. Linear fireplaces are built the same for indoors and outdoors, and can be made from many different materials like stone or brick. The design you choose for your outdoor space should match the rest of your home or your outdoor landscape.
