Types of Fire Pits in Des Peres, MO
"Fire Pit" is an umbrella term that encompasses everything from holes in the ground to elaborate stone structures. It differs from a built-in outdoor fireplace in that people form a circle 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 come in a vast range of sizes. They're ideal for people in Des Peres, MO who look forward to hanging out with friends, doing a crossword, or drinking a glass of wine with their partner while watching the sun go down. Because they're they're typically not very tall, people sitting around them will be able to stay warm. You can put legs under the fire bowl so the heat spreads further.
Fire tables come in a range of shapes, from circles, to rectangles, to octagons. They have a wide rim around the fire where drinks and hors d'oeuvres can be placed, or where you can safely put your feet up. They're great for having people over for dinner or socializing. They're great to put in the middle of a group of outdoor couches.
Tabletop Fire Pits
These are petite and portable and are designed to be placed on small tables throughout a yard. They're ideal for adding a little extra warmth to an outdoor dinner and keeping the mosquitoes away.
These are the fire pits most like an old school campfire. They're simple metal rings that rest directly on the ground and are easy to store when you're not using them. The fires are typically wood-burning, and rings help keep the embers and wood from hurting other people or property.
Inspired by traditional Asian design concepts, pagodas are vertically rectangular fire pits with a curved roof and chimney for ventilation. They give the impression of large lanterns, and the heat can be felt on all four sides.
These fire pits are thin and typically at least four or five feet tall. Some have a small bowl on top of them, while some have gas lines that produce fire directly from the column. These are great for smaller areas in Des Peres, MO as they don't take up much horizontal space. They usually have magnificent stone sidings.
4 Questions to Ask Yourself When Getting a Custom Fire Pit in Des Peres, MO
Poynter offers custom fire pits unique to each project we take on. We'll be able to give you the fire pit fits your tastes and how you envision yourself using it. Below are four important 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 add an amazing accent to the rest of your outdoor space. Or, you can choose a portable option that 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 the classic wood-burning approach. It's hard to beat the sound of crackling wood on a cold evening, and you'll be able to impress Des Peres, MO family and friends with your fire-making skills.
- Where do I want to put my fire pit? If you choose a permanent permanent, local laws or your homeowners' association may have restrictions on how close the fire pit can be to neighbor's property in Des Peres, MO or to foliage. You also need to think about how you want it to fit with the rest of your outdoor space. Do you want it off away in the yard as a quiet, mini-getaway? As a central feature in your patio or terrace? Or in your pergola or pavilion so you can enjoy a fire when the weather isn't great? Or close to 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 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 classic looking stone custom fire pit? Or something more bohemian?
