Do you love spending time outdoors? Is your patio a luxury retreat? Are you mourning the end of summer and the arrival of colder nights? You don’t have to! With an outdoor fire pit you can enjoy your patio throughout the year!
The following are our favorite reasons for adding an outdoor fire pit to your patio.
1. Fire Pits Make Your Patio a Multi-Season Space
Sure, the temperature outside has dropped a little. But a fire pit will warm you up during those cool nights. Place your fire pit in a common area on your patio. Arrange chairs around the edges of your fire pit. Keep a few blankets on hand for those who get extra cold. Then, invite your friends and family to gather around the toasty spot you just created!
2. Fire Pits Add Ambiance
Like candles and bistro lights, the glow of a fire pit adds a visual warmth to your space. It creates a sense of closeness between those who gather around its flames.
3. Fire Pits Provide Entertainment
This is especially true of wood burning fire pits. From stoking the fire to watching logs burn, the simple act of keeping the flame lively can be a source of entertainment.
4. Fire Pits Offer a Great Cooking Tool
Few things fuel our primal selves more than cooking over an open flame. This doesn’t mean you have to slow roast a pig or throw your cast iron on top of a log. But a few sticks and marshmallows can make for one heck of an evening. S’mores are a beloved treat by many. And with a fire pit, they can become the main event for the night.
