A backyard fire pit offers warmth, illumination, and a romantic and dramatic ambience that promotes relaxation at its finest. Sitting around the fire is a pastime that has been upheld for millennia by people from all walks of life. The only thing that has changed is that designer fire pits have replaced traditional fires.
As you think about installing a designer fire pit, consider the following factors;
- Local codes – Different local authorities may have various codes and ordinances about fire pits. Some limit the type of fire pit, while others require you to get permission from them if you plan on using natural gas as your source of fuel.
- Cost – It is determined by the type and size of the fire pit. People who buy amenities to place around the fireplace end up spending more than those looking for a simple fire pit.
- Style – The space available determines the style of the fire pit. If you have a small space, use the bowl design, but if you have a large space, use rectangular or square fire pits.
- Fire pit material – Before choosing the material for your fire pit, consider the ease of cleaning it, the weight in case the fire pit is portable, cost of installation, and its durability.
- Location – Do you want the fire pit to be permanent or portable? If you want it to be portable, buy a light fire pit so that you can move it around with ease. If you want it to be permanent, choose a location that is convenient and safe.
- Fuel – There are three main types of fuel; wood, propane and natural gas. Consider the availability, cost, and effectiveness of each option before choosing any type of fuel.
