4 Questions to Ask Yourself Before You Get a Custom Fire Pit in Huntleigh, MO
Poynter offers custom fire pits because we know that pre-imagined designs won't be the best for every outdoor space. You need to find the fire pit fits your tastes and what you want it for. We've put together four important 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. 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 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.
Others may prefer the classic wood-burning approach. It's hard to beat the crackle and pop of wood on a chilly evening, and you'll be able to impress Huntleigh, MO family and friends with your ability to create a sustainable fire.
- What area of my yard do I want the fire pit in? If you opt for a permanent permanent, local ordinances or your HOA may have rules about how close the fire pit can be to neighbor's property in Huntleigh, MO or to low-hanging branches. 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 ideal? Or close to the swimming pool so you can stay warm between dips in the pool.
- What kind 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 guests 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?
