Warm Up Your Patio with a New Fire Pit

Published on: March 13, 2016

Summer evenings are often spent on the patio, enjoy the warm nights. But when nights begin to cool down, you most likely move inside to stay warm. Why miss sitting underneath a starry sky just because it is cooler at night? A new patio fire pit is a great way to warm up the nights and add a beautiful focal point. Now is the perfect time to build your new fire pit, once you decide on the type of fireplace or pit you want. Here are a few options.

  • Stone or brick fireplace. Like an indoor fireplace, you can add an outdoor fireplace to gather around on your patio. These can offer a wonderful source of heat while providing a beautiful stone or brick focal point.
  • An open fire pit. Create a campfire atmosphere with an open fire pit that you can gather around. Open fire pits are very versatile and can be make any size and with a wide variety of materials. Choose from natural stone, brick, concrete or metal.
  • Cooking fire pit or oven. If you want to cook more than marshmallows over your outdoor fire pit, a cooking pit or oven can be built. Bake fire pit pizzas or grill over an open wood flame for ultimate flavor – or do both with a large fire pit and brick oven combo.
