There are many options when it comes to the size, shape and style of a fire pit. You can have a built-in fire pit installed, or you can purchase a portable one that can be moved about your yard. If opting for a built-in fire pit, you will be able to choose from a variety of outdoor finishing materials including concrete, stone and brick. And remember, fire pits do not have to be round-they can be square, L-shaped, triangular, or an entirely custom shape.
Almost everyone loves hanging out by the fire pit while lounging in a yard. Here are a few fire pit ideas that might inspire you to build or buy one.
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.
