How to Choose a Fire Pit For Your Outdoor Space?

Outdoor fire pits are one of the most popular outdoor living design trends right now; they add a unique, fun and relaxing element to any patio and they also allow you to extend the enjoyment of the outdoor living space.

We believe you should choose a fire pit that reflects your personality, your lifestyle. Here are some very general things you should look for when considering purchasing a fire pit: 

START WITH STYLE/SHAPE- 

KNOW THE DIMENSIONS- generally, fire pits range in size from 20″-48″ in diameter. Small ones are usually 26”-30″ while the largest pits are about 36″-48″ in diameter (about the size of an outdoor table).

DECIDE ON FUEL- most fire pits are either wood-burning, natural gas, propane, or ethanol and it’s important to decide on which type you want. One of the biggest benefits of a natural gas fire pit is the BTU’s. Hidden propane tank fire pits are easy to hook up and they are very portable.                                           

CHOOSE MATERIAL- for fire pits, materials can range from stone, steel, aluminum or stainless steel. Concrete fire pits are beautiful and make a great focal point, but they do require a little bit of maintenance. Just like your concrete countertop, concrete fire pits need to be sealed once a year. Stainless steel fire pits, can be pricey but it’s rain- and rust-resistant and also easy to clean. But, if you’re looking for something low maintenance, consider a cor-ten steel version or aluminum. Aluminum fire pits powder-coated to stand up to the elements and they also have a nice look. Steel fire pit will develop a nice rust patina and you will never have to worry about cleaning it.

.

 ACCESSORIES- the type of rocks used greatly affects how the fire behaves and how you experience its blazing allure. Choose from fire glass, decorative river rock or lava rock.
