4 Questions to Ask Yourself Before You Get a Custom Fire Pit in Dardenne Prairie, MO
Poynter designs custom fire pits unique to each job we do. We'll be able to give you the fire pit fits your tastes and how you envision yourself using it. We've put together four essential questions to ask before deciding what kind of fire pit you want:
- Should I get a permanent installation, or one I can move when not in use? A permanent fixture can can be the focal point of an outdoor space. But a portable custom fire pit is easily removed to make room for a crowd when you're not using it.
- Do I want a gas or wood-burning fire pit? Gas fire pits can be more convenient as a fire can get started in seconds, and they are much easier to 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.
On the other hand, you may prefer top burn wood. There's nothing like the sound of crackling wood on a cool evening, and it's always nice to impress Dardenne Prairie, MO family and friends with your fire-making skills.
- Where do I want to put my fire pit? If you choose a permanent installation, local laws or your homeowners' association may have rules about the proximity of the fire pit to neighbor's property in Dardenne Prairie, 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 in a secluded area for short 2-hour vacations? As the centerpiece of your patio or terrace? Or in your pergola or pavilion so you keep warm when the weather isn't great? Or next to the swimming pool so you can stay warm between dips in the pool.
- What type 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 people warm as they circulate your patio? Or a table-height fire pit, that you can eat over and then open up after dessert?
Also, what do you want the aesthetics of your fire pit to be? Do you want a gorgeously designed brick or marble custom fire pit? Or something more modern?
