The differences between a fire pit and an outdoor fireplace, along with a chart that can help you evaluate the most suitable choice for your outdoor living space. Weighing the pros and cons of the various fire pit fuel options, including gas, propane, wood and ethanol.
People naturally want to draw closer together when seated around a fire pit. This elegant tall version includes a few enviable features. More comfy seats equal fewer spots for a side table; the fire pit eliminates that need with enough height to double as a narrow shelf, too. Two materials offer subtle textural and color contrast in the patio space to help heighten visual interest.
Scale and shape are important in a fire pit design, too. Angles and straight lines in a home or yard equal the same in a fire pit. The rustic bend of this version is tempered with a cool almost-white stone selection and flat edge at the top.
There are few things more welcoming in an outdoor space than a fire pit. Fortunately, these amenities come in shapes and sizes to fit nearly every budget and landscape style.
