The season is upon us to seek a little extra warmth while enjoying our outdoor spaces. We’re here to shed some light (and heat) on a few options to consider when deciding to outfit your home with a fire feature.
Fire pits are a choice that might offer the most individuality, being that they can be constructed in just about any shape, size, or design you could dream up! Fuel options are plentiful and vary from wood or charcoal to propane and natural gas. There are now many electric models to select from as well. Whether you opt for brick, stone, concrete, or metal, you’ll have the freedom to make your fire pit not only a stylish central gathering place but also a functional feature of your backyard. Fire pits are a great place to cook dinner as our MN nights begin to cool off, so get the kids involved and plan a family cookout!
Fire bowls are a handy alternative to a pit if you’re looking for a more portable fire feature. For example, a fire bowl can be transported easily from your home to your cabin and can also be brought inside when not in use to avoid the harsh elements. Because they’re self-contained, fire bowls are useful in areas with regulations that restrict pits or outdoor fireplaces.
If you’re looking for another option that offers both fashion and function, a fire table is a stylish way to bring ambient lighting and warmth right to your dining space! Sizes and styles vary greatly with fire tables, so there’s a lot to think about when deciding how you want to utilize yours. From small end tables, to grand dining areas, fire tables are a statement piece for your patio as well as a convenient 2-in-1 option when searching for a multi-use area in which to dine while staying warm. Of course, the size of your feature will play into its portability but will also determine how many friends and family members you’ll be able to accommodate around it’s inviting glow.
