40 Best Patio Ideas with Fireplace – Traditional Designs for Outdoor Living Spaces

40 Best Patio Ideas with Fireplace for Traditional Designs

Patios are ideal spaces for outdoor family gatherings like barbecue parties and brunches. However, not everybody likes modern outdoor living spaces that seem too sterile. Here are 40 patio ideas with fireplace to help you create a warm and welcoming space using more traditional designs as your inspiration.

When you think traditional, you’re probably thinking of comfortable oversized chairs, earthy hues, and brick and stone fireplaces. You are spot-on as these features are the essence of all conventional living spaces. It’s where comfort meets practicality and dining tables.

Yes, dining tables and outdoor grills are other staples of traditional outdoor living spaces. Depending on the weather where you reside and your design aesthetic, you can opt for a covered or open patio. Don’t worry, though, as we have you covered on both ends.

You could opt for an extended roof to create a covered patio or opt instead for oversized umbrellas to provide the much-needed shade during summers. If you want the best of both worlds, you can instead opt for wooden pergolas that allow enough sunlight to pass through while allowing for some relief from the sun.

You can opt for stone, tile, flagstone, or brick patio depending upon your decor theme. Conventional patios usually feature earthy tones to keep the theme warm. Decorate it with fairy lights, a fireplace, and comfortable seating to create a magical space.

A fireplace is another important feature as it adds the perfect element of warmth and coziness. You can even have it double as a wood-fired pizza oven. Combined with a grill and dining area, it creates an outdoor space perfect for parties.

The seating is how you define your outdoor living space. The traditional patio features oversized sofas with a table in the middle. Rustic patios reminiscent of archaic times usually feature stone benches and flagstones. However, these also feature huge fireplaces and earthy tones that capture the essence of conventional patios.

You can also choose to keep the setting simple by opting for simple patio chairs around a stone surround fireplace. For those with restricted space, keeping it simple is the best idea. In backyards with pools, decorating the space with only chairs can suffice.

Other spaces require more elaborate decor. If trees surround your patio, consider adding a hammock to create a lounging area for children and adults alike. Surround the area with ample greenery to create a pleasant atmosphere.

Adding fairy lights or overhanging light fixtures can also elevate the look of your traditional patio. Warm lights work particularly well with red brick or flagstones of the same color palette. However, with gray stone patios, we suggest you keep the color theme light. Stick to white sofas or patio furniture.

You can mix and match the two design themes by painting white a red brick fireplace while maintaining the original look of the patio.  There are endless traditional patio ideas with fireplace that you can choose from. Here are a few pictures to help you make a decision.
