Fire pits have quickly become one of the most popular accents to include in outdoor living spaces. Homeowners are truly spoiled for choice when it comes to selecting from one of the many styles that are available.
If you’ve been trying to decide which fire pit style would best suit your home and provide additional value, this list will get you started:
Something that Matches your Existing Patio
One of the best ways to ensure that a fire pit brings additional value to your home is to match it to your patio area’s existing aesthetics. For instance, if the rest of this area has been finished with concrete, it makes sense to erect a concrete fire pit as well.
A Pit that Performs Double Duty
If space is at a premium in your outdoor living area, but you’re dying to incorporate a fire pit, consider installing one that can double up as a coffee table or BBQ. Many firepits have flat lids that can be decorated and function as a coffee table providing instant usable space when you are not having a fire. Several models come fitted with a detachable swinging BBQ arm that can be attached whenever you’re in the mood to grill.
If your home is comprised of more modern finishes, you may want to consider a fire pit that has been made with a decorative or ‘cut out’ metal design. This will almost certainly be a talking point among family and friends who spend time in your yard because it will stand out from the usual designs.
Slim Line Options for Smaller Yards
Just because your backyard is smaller than average, it doesn’t mean that you’ll have to forego having a fire pit installed. A number of slimline options are now available, which are not only practical but also highly stylish and elegant.
Having a wall mounted fire pit can allow you to create a separate area from your pool – a place for the adults to gather while the kids swim under supervision. Some wall-mounted models can act as a BBQ as well and an additional disk can be placed on the wall behind to protect it from ash. If your yard area is small, consider a model that folds up when not in use.
Before rushing off to purchase a fire pit, it’s strongly recommended that you consult with an outdoor living space expert to determine which options will be best for your yard.
