Love to lounge outdoors but the chill easily gets to your bone? Adding a fire pit can easily make your outdoor area more hospitable and comfortable for you and your family. But is adding a fire pit really a good idea? Here are 3 instances when you should consider adding a fire pit.
– When the outdoor area caters to social gatherings and groups
A fire pit’s 360-degree warmth allows people to move around the area and still feel the comfort of the fire pit heat. A fire pit also allows for the group to sit evenly spread and away from each other but still feel the heat from the fire pit.
– When there’s an outstanding view that shouldn’t be blocked
A fire pit’s low profile lets you enjoy the panorama with no tall chimneys in the way. So, watch the sun set while not feeling the chill of the night or watch stars and still feel warm against the biting cold breeze. However, your fire pit is open to all the outdoor elements that may extinguish the fire, such as rain or wind.
– When the space is limited
Fire pits come in different builds such as pre-fabricated, custom-made or portable. A pre-fabricated fire pit is the easiest and fastest to install, sometimes even within hours. There is no additional fee for an expert stonemason to finish the exterior design but there is a need for you or your contractor to know how to connect it to your gas lines or to a propane tank safely. Portable fire pits are perfect for camping but can also be used at home. Meanwhile, a custom-made will allow you some choices in the location, design, size, and other features such as a over-the-top grill or seating area. No matter how large or small your outdoor space is, there is a fire pit that can suit your outdoor heating needs.
