Types of Fire Pits in Arnold, MO
"Fire Pit" is a general term for a source of fire that a group of people can gather around. It differs from a built-in outdoor fireplace in that people can easily gather and move around a fire pit. What type of fire pit installation is best for you will mostly depend on why you want a fire pit in the first place.
Fire bowls can be small enough to warm your hands, or big enough to warm your entire backyard. They're ideal for homeowners in Arnold, MO who look forward to hanging out with friends, reading by themselves, or having an evening drink with their partner while stargazing. Because they're low to the ground, people sitting around them will be able to stay warm. You can also choose to elevate the fire bowl to help the heat dissipate a little bit more.
Fire tables come in a range of shapes, from circles, to rectangles, to octagons. They have a wide rim around the fire where glasses and hors d'oeuvres can site, or where you can rest your feet. These are ideal for people who like to use their outdoor space to host guests. They are a great addition as the centerpiece among outdoor couches.
Tabletop Fire Pits
These are the smallest type of fire pit and are designed to be placed on patio tables, decks, or small tables around a pool. They're perfect for keeping hands warm while you eat and keeping the mosquitoes away.
These are the fire pits most like a classic campfire. They're simple metal rings that are placed on the ground and are easy to store when you're not using them. These are purely wood-burning fire pits, and rings help keep the embers and wood from hurting other people or property.
Inspired by ancient Asian design concepts, pagodas are enclosed, typically square fire pits with a chimney where smoke can escape to. They give the impression of large lanterns, and heat can be felt by someone on any side of it.
These fire pits are thin and typically at least four or five feet tall. Sometimes the fire comes from a small fire bowl on top, while some have fire coming directly from the square top. These are perfect for smaller areas in Arnold, MO as they provide warmth without taking up too much space. They typically have magnificent designs.
4 Questions to Ask Yourself Before You Get a Custom Fire Pit in Arnold, MO
Poynter offers custom fire pits because we know that stock designs aren't the best for every outdoor space. We'll be able to give you the fire pit fits your tastes and what you want it for. Below are four essential questions to ask before buying a fire pit:
- Do I want a permanent structure, or one I can move when not in use? A permanent fixture can add an amazing accent to the rest of your outdoor space. Or, you can choose a portable option that can be stored to create more space when you're not using it.
- Would I prefer a gas or wood-burning fire pit? Gas fire pits are easier to start and keep clean. Poynter has a thorough understanding of how to properly install gas fixtures and lines to provide a flame that is both realistic and warming.
Others may prefer top use wood. There's nothing like the sound of crackling wood on a cool night, and it's always nice to impress Arnold, MO family and friends with your ability to create a sustainable fire.
- What part of my yard do I want the fire pit in? If you choose a permanent permanent, local laws or your HOA may have rules about the proximity of the fire pit to neighbor's property in Arnold, MO or to shrubs, trees, or other greenery. Where's the best place for what I want to use it for? Do you want it off away in the yard as a quiet, mini-getaway? As the centerpiece of your patio or terrace? Or in your pergola or pavilion so you be warm outside when it's raining? Or by the swimming pool so you can stay warm between dips in the pool.
- What kind of fire pit do I want? There are several types of fire pits. Do you want one that emulates a campfire? A taller, fire column to keep guests warm during cocktails and mingling? Or a table-height fire pit, that you can eat over and then open up after dessert?
