We all know someone with an amazing outdoor entertainment space. What are some of the factors that make it such a fantastic place to spend time together? A fire pit is likely one of them.
Whether you have a small or large outdoor space, a fire pit is a perfect touch to tie together all elements of your personal outdoor environment. It doesn’t matter if your design tastes are traditional, quirky, or everything in between…incorporating a fire pit will create just the ambiance you’re going for. Even if your outdoor space is already lovely, why not add some icing to the cake?!
Check out some reasons why fire pits are a must-have…
Sure, fire pits are great for summer evenings. But they’re just as wonderful for spring and fall! They can provide the illusion of summertime on a chilly spring night or serve as a source of warmth on a crisp fall afternoon. One of the main reasons it’s such a worthwhile investment is the fact that you’ll use it 3 out of 4 seasons (75% of the entire year).
They add value to your home
Outdoor spaces are a huge selling point for homebuyers. “Homeowners know that designed landscapes add value to their lives as well as their property values. They’re interested in livable, open spaces that are both stylish and earth friendly”, according to Nancy Somerville, CEO of the American Society of Landscape Architects. Fire pits are just that – open, stylish and earth-friendly. Home buyers are often looking for spaces that are conducive to entertaining guests, and nothing screams “Make yourself at home!” or “Make yourself comfortable!” quite like a fire pit.
They’re a source of socialization and sentimentality
Just picture it. You’re circled around the fire with your closest friends and family, roasting marshmallows and making s’mores. More importantly, you’re creating memories that will last a lifetime! A toddler is trying her first s’more, friends are laughing while the light of the fire illuminates their smiles, an older relative is telling stories from their youth, the dog is chewing its favorite stick.
You can cook on it
Why fire up the oven or traditional grill when you can cook over an open flame? Most (if not all) fire pits are compatible with grill grates that sit nicely across the top of the flame. Check out this website for some yummy fire pit recipes – 23 things to cook on your fire pit!
