This time of year makes the most sense to have a fire pit in your backyard or outdoor living area. A fire pit with cozy seating area will be a perfect centerpiece of your backyard paradise. For before-dinner drinks or after-dinner s’mores, this awesome outdoor space provides you an amazing place to entertain or a place to relax and unwind. Here are some fire pit ideas with seating area that you will get inspired and want to add them to your outdoor landscape.
Built-in seating is currently one of the top trends in outdoor living and makes an excellent addition to a fire pit design. Some people like to place seat walls four feet away from the fire pit, which allows for walking room. Others prefer a three-foot distance, which can allow you to prop your feet on the ledge of the pit. If using seat walls, consider leaving one or two sides open. This will allow for the option of furniture placement, which softens the look and adds interest to the design. To add comfort and color to seat walls, use a variety of throws and outdoor pillows.
Did you know that you can make your own fire pit in less than a day if you want to? Even though fire pits don’t have to be intricate structures (and they actually aren’t), the level of design people resort to when it comes to DIY fire pits is spectacular. From simple round or square shaped pits to multi-level stone designs, the collection we offer you for guidance will prove useful when you’re in lack of fresh and unique ideas. Don’t confine your imagination to the range mentioned above. The fire pit can even come in the shape of a small flower pot, like you can see from the photo. Metal is also used, not just stone, and the decorating additions can really put some personality into a fire pit. Do you think 38 ideas are enough for you to get your creativity up and running? Grab some inspiration from the awesome collection we provide you with and good luck building your own DIY fire pit. Your outdoor events will have a new and improved ambience from now on.
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.
