The choice of materials can make your fire pit feel as though it is a seamless extension of your existing landscape design. Although the larger paving stones on this elegant and Mediterranean-style patio gave way to smaller version in the fire pit, the color palette remains mostly the same, helping preserve cohesion.
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.
An above-ground pit becomes a focal point of your outdoor living design. Be sure and place it where it balances with other large design elements. A gas fire pit can be placed just about anywhere, but a wood-burning pit will need to be at least 10 feet away from any structure. Before putting in a permanent fire pit, check for wind patterns that may cause potential smoke issues. Also, remember to leave ample room for seating around the pit.
Because of the vast array of fire pit designs available, and the importance of choosing the appropriate size and location for your fire pit, be sure to consult with a landscape designer for advice and guidance.
