Types of Fire Pits in Fenton, MO
"Fire Pit" is a general term for a source of fire that a group of people can gather around. As opposed to an outdoor fireplace, people can easily gather and move around a fire pit. Which type of fire pit you want will largely 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 Fenton, MO who look forward to sitting around the fire 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 make the fire bowl taller so the heat spreads further.
Fire tables come in a range of shapes, from circles, to rectangles, to octagons. They have a place around the fire where drinks and appetizers 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 an outdoor space. They're ideal for keeping hands warm while you eat and discouraging mosquitoes.
These will remind you most of a classic campfire. They're simple metal rings that rest directly on the ground and can be put in storage when not in use. These are purely wood-burning fire pits, and rings help contain the fire.
Inspired by traditional Asian architecture, pagodas are enclosed, typically square fire pits with a chimney for ventilation. They essentially look like large lanterns, and the heat can be felt on all four sides.
These fire pits are taller and thinner. 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 outdoor spaces in Fenton, MO as they don't take up much horizontal space. They typically have ornate stone sidings.
4 Questions to Ask Yourself Before You Get a Custom Fire Pit in Fenton, MO
Poynter offers custom fire pits because we know that one or two designs won't be 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. We've put together four essential questions to ask before deciding what kind of fire pit you want:
- Do I want a permanent structure, or a portable one? A permanent fixture can add an amazing accent to the rest of your outdoor space. But a portable custom fire pit can be stored to create more space 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 in order to give you a realistic, gas-powered flame.
Others may prefer top use wood. It's hard to beat the sound of crackling wood on a cold night, and it's always nice to put your Fenton, MO friends and family in awe with your fire-making skills.
- What area of my yard do I want the fire pit in? If you opt for a permanent permanent, local laws or your HOA may have rules about the proximity of the fire pit to neighbor's property in Fenton, 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 be warm outside when the weather isn't great? Or by the swimming pool so you can stay warm while swimming at night.
- What type of fire pit do I want? Fire pits come in all shapes and sizes. 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 drinks, appetizers, or dessert over?
Also, what do you want the aesthetics of your fire pit to be? Do you want a gorgeously designed stone custom fire pit? Or something more modern?
