Outdoor fire features are a great way to bring your typical bonfires to the next level and enjoy the beauty of your backyard while staying cozy. Whether you’re looking to add to your patio space, pool side, or grass area, there’s many ways to upgrade your landscape.
Why should you consider an outdoor fire feature?
- Cozy ambiance. A fire feature will add a relaxing, homey vibe to your patio so guests always feel welcome. They’re also a great place for socializing, so the family can gather around for quality time.
- Extends your outdoor use into the fall. Thanks to your warm fire feature, you can still gather around the fire with friends and family even as the temps start to drop.
- Less clean-up. Depending on the type of fire pit you get, you might have the benefit of less maintenance. A wood fire pit will need some routine cleaning if it’s used frequently to throw out the ashes, but a gas fire feature will simply turn on with the flip of a switch.
- They can become the centerpiece of your outdoor living space. If your patio has been missing something, a fire feature may be the answer to your dilemma. They make great focal points because they serve as a social gathering spot. Even when not in use, the chairs around it will create an inviting space.
- They offer a variety of design options. Most firepits will either have a more rustic, classic, or modern approach. Typically, they’re made with stone, brick, or metal (sometimes both). This gives homeowners the options of choosing what works best for their personal style and the vibe they want their outdoor space to give off. Some examples include:
The classic Kingsman Gas Outdoor Fire Pit. It features stones and a classic design while offering a more maintainable gas option.
The Lancaster Square Firepit Coffee Table. It features a sleek, modern design that can double as a place to eat food.
