What could be better than cozying up by an outdoor fireplace as you gaze up at the stars? A warm, glowing firepit makes it easy to enjoy the outdoors even when it’s freezing out. But if you don’t have a large backyard or patio, you may think you’re out of luck.
But don’t worry. There are actually a number of firepits that are built with small spaces in mind. Thanks to these pint-sized pits, you can enjoy an outdoor fire whether you live in an apartment with a small balcony or have limited patio space.
Here are 8 outdoor fireplaces that will suit your cozy abode perfectly:
1. Sunnydaze Portable Outdoor Fire Pit Bowl
This firepit is only 29 inches wide and 24 inches tall, and it comes with a folding stand and a mesh screen to keep you safe from sparks. This highly-rated firepit is quick to assemble and costs $105 on Amazon.
2. Landmann USA 23172 Patio Lights Firewave Firepit
This sturdy little potbelly firepit has a unique wave cutout design on its steel exterior, which makes it aesthetically pleasing and also allows it to give off more warmth. You can also opt for other designs, including deer- or bear-shaped cutouts, or opt for a shorter pit design for an even smaller firepit height. Find it on Amazon for $85.16.
3. Field & Stream Fire Pit and Cooking Grate
At 32 inches, this Field & Stream firepit is dainty enough for smallish patios and balconies, yet it offers a large area for grilling dogs or veggies or roasting marshmallows. Find it at Dick’s Sportings Goods for $69.97.
4. Terra Flame Wave Table Top Fire Bowl
You may not have the floor real estate for a firepit, but you probably have room on your patio table! This stone fire bowl is the perfect centerpiece for chilly days and nights, and the compact design makes it perfect for small spaces. Find it here on Target for $47.49.
5. Ebern Designs Steel Firepit
We love this steel, contemporary design not only because of its clean lines and modern aesthetic, but also because it makes this firepit more compact than its round peers. At 17.75 inches wide and 23.5 inches tall, its slim profile makes it easy to tuck into tight spaces while still giving off that warmth and comfort you desire from a firepit. Find it here on Wayfair for $139.99.
6. England’s Stove Works Tabletop Fireplace
Made from 16-gauge steel, this sturdy firepit is 11.25 inches tall, 18.5 inches wide and weighs just 17 pounds. It fits neatly on patio tables or outdoor end tables, yet it exudes plenty of heat and ambiance. Find it on Wayfair for $74.99.
7. Pure Garden Square Marble Tile Firepit
This diminutive 30-inch square firepit features beautiful marble and a unique contemporary design. It also comes with a removable tile table top cover so you can use it as a table when not in use, and a protective cover made of weather-resistant PVC to keep the firepit safe during inclement weather. Find it for $119.99 on Amazon.
Or, Splurge On:
8. Solo Stove Stainless Steel Firepit
This wood-burning firepit is one of the smallest (and most expensive) options on this list, coming in at 19.5 inches wide and 14 inches tall. But don’t let this miniature firepit fool you — it gives off plenty of warmth and light, and reviewers say that it gives off very little smoke or campfire odor. Find it on Wayfair for $299.99.
