Entertaining spot

Fires are a good way to play host to friends and family. When you are deciding whether or not to install a fire pit, remember to consider the view you’ll have from indoors. By positioning the feature of your backyard design in a way which is noticeable from inside the house, you can enjoy the relaxing ambiance while staying indoors. You can also think about placing your outdoor fire pit where warmth will reflect easily and keep the guests happy.

You don’t have to limit yourself to a random shape. Fireplaces can include indoor/outdoor, traditional in-wall fires, circular bowls, or traditional in-wall fires. The circular bowl provides your patio area an outdoor, camping feel while serving as a focal point for conversation.

Fire pits that are double-sided let people gather on either side, letting them spread out. They can be perfect for bigger parties. With the correct home design, homeowners will have a fireplace they can view outside and inside the home. Some of these add-ons have an oven opening for barbecuing brick.

Property

Before you start installing an outdoor fire pit, consider the balance between your design plan and your property’s size. If your yard is small, choose to install a small proportioned fire pit to seamlessly fit. Alternatively, if your yard has plenty of space, you can then select a bigger scale fireplace or fire pit.

Size

Selecting the right size for your outdoor fire pit is important in deciding the number of people that can gather around and enjoy it. If you are considering entertaining a big crowd, you’ll need a big outdoor fireplace having a longer hearth. This will permit plenty of seating and entertainment to take place around the fire. But if you just want to entertain a small group, a small fireplace is great.

Placement

By positioning your outdoor fire pit near your house, or in a circular fire pit design, you will be in awe of your hardscape from different viewpoints within your property. If you want to enhance a rustic design, think about incorporating a stone fireplace off your deck. For properties with a garden, construct your fireplace close to its edge to incorporate it into the foliage.

Before lighting up your new outdoor fire pit, you should take the time to look at varying weather conditions. For regions with heavy rain, you should leave a drain hole above the height of your deck and the fire pit’s bottom open to let water to escape.
