There are many different ways to install a fire pit in your backyard. You can do everything from simply buying a temporary fire pit to building one out of pavers to creating a unique permanent installation. If you’re thinking about adding one of these features to your backyard, here are five amazing ways to create outdoor fire pits.
1. The Ultra-Modern Approach
If you’re a fan of modern architecture and style, you may want to have a fire pit that’s more modern looking than most. These modern fire pits, also known as fire tables, are often rectangular and look just like a regular table. The only difference is that with a touch of a button, the center part of the table erupts in flame. These modern looks are usually gas-powered, so you don’t get the same smell or the pops and cracks of a wood-burning fire pit. However, if you love the modern look, this may be the installation for you.
2. The Conversation Area
Many people use their fire pit as the center of their conversation area and, by extension, their entire patio or backyard. With this type of installation, your fire pit is situated in the center of the space with all the chairs facing it. Normally, these fire pits are circular and good-sized, but that doesn’t always have to be the case.
3. The Basic Fire Pit
If you go for the basic look, you want a fire pit that doesn’t really stand out that much. You want the simplest look you can find. There’s nothing wrong with going basic, especially if the fire pit isn’t going to be the centerpiece of your patio. These fire pits may actually be situated off to the side or near your outdoor hot tub, providing light and warmth for other activities.
4. The Fireplace Look
While you typically think of a fire pit as being open on all sides, it doesn’t have to be. You can place your fire pit within an alcove or have a small wall behind one side of it. This can be helpful if you want to split your backyard into clearly separated areas or if you tend to get a lot of wind from one direction. It creates a look that’s similar to an outdoor fireplace but doesn’t feature a chimney.
5. Fire Pit and Built-In Seating
Finally, some fire pits have an extended lip around them that you can use for seating. Others may have stone seating built up around them. Either way, these installations create a permanent space that can be customized for your home or backyard. This provides you with an amazing place to enjoy or, if you plan on selling your home at some point, a space that adds value.
