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.
Although fire pits are a common appearance in more traditionally influenced landscapes, with the right detailing they can fit perfectly in modern-leaning yards. That’s why the choice of material is particularly important if you’re adding a fire pit after the backyard gathering area has already been assembled. Here, an atypical fire pit design -- a sloped-in base -- as well as the neutral color and wide top shelf help give this portable fire pit a clean-line aesthetic.
Many people opt for a mobile fire pit that can be moved around to various locations. Movable fire pits are certainly less expensive than a built-in pit, come in a wide variety of designs, and have the added benefit of portability. The primary drawback, however, is that a movable fire pit tends to only last a season or two before the materials begin to deteriorate.
Although fire pits are often a central part of backyards, portable versions are good options for encouraging more secluded seating nooks. Here, a change in material underfoot -- from gravel to pavers -- marks the quiet square. It is just big enough for a cozy sofa and chair as well as the central fire pit.
