When the weather is nice enough to go outdoor, it is time to sit around by the firepit. You can toast some s’mores, have a barbeque and exchange stories. There are various materials and designs to make a good firepit. Here are some of the most popular designs to inspire you.
It can’t get any easier than this. This type of pit does not need gas to light up. You will only need to put in charcoal and stones. To get the boulder pit, simply arrange several large slabs of stones as the base. And that is all you need, get some woods, and you are ready.
2. The Gravel
Make a firepit with small rocks and gravel ties with cement. The gravel makes an ideal material. Put more gravels surrounding the pit, and you’ll have a nice place to warm up on a windy night.
Who can resist a cheap yet sturdy material when you are designing an outdoor structure? The advantage of using cinderblock is you get a solid material with a modern shape. The square or rectangular forms blend perfectly with a modern home.
4. In-Ground Ideas
Basically, you just need to dig a hole large enough to make a fireplace. Some people prefer this kind of structure for safety reasons. The dirt around it can prevent fires from escaping the pit.
5. Firepit And Seating Area
Don’t you love it when one design fits all? Like having a pit that comes with a matching seating area. You can use bricks, concrete and cinderblocks as the pit structure as well as the seating area.
Highlight your home with a cozy firepit to make space outdoor to gather around. Feel free to be creative with the designs. Who knows you may want to do thing a little differently. Just make sure it is safe and comfortable.
