Types of Fire Pits in Richmond Heights, MO
"Fire Pit" is an umbrella term for flames that a group of people can gather around. As opposed to an outdoor fireplace, people sit on any side of a fire pit. What type of fire pit installation is best for you 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 people in Richmond Heights, MO who look forward to sitting around the fire with friends, doing a crossword, or drinking a glass of wine with their partner while stargazing. Because they're they're typically not very tall, people sitting around them will be able to stay warm. You can also choose to elevate the fire bowl to help the heat spread 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 food items can site, or where you can rest your feet. They're great for people who like to use their outdoor space to host parties. They are a great addition as the centerpiece among outdoor couches.
Tabletop Fire Pits
These are the smallest type of fire pit and are meant to be placed on small tables throughout an outdoor space. They're great 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 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 contain the fire.
Based on traditional Asian design concepts, pagodas are vertically rectangular fire pits with a chimney where smoke can escape to. They essentially look like 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 decks in Richmond Heights, MO as they don't take up much horizontal space. They usually have impressive designs.
4 Questions to Ask Yourself Before You Get a Custom Fire Pit in Richmond Heights, MO
Poynter designs custom fire pits because we know that stock designs won't be the best for every outdoor space. We'll be able to give you the fire pit that is perfect for your home and what you want it for. Below are four important questions to ask before buying a fire pit:
- Do I want a permanent installation, or a portable one? A permanent fixture can can be the focal point of an outdoor space. But a portable custom fire pit can be stored 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 are easier to start and keep clean. Poynter knows how to properly install gas fixtures and lines in order to give you a realistic, gas-powered flame.
On the other hand, you may prefer top use wood. There's nothing like the sound of crackling wood on a cool night, and you'll be able to impress Richmond Heights, 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 homeowners' association may have rules about the proximity of the fire pit to neighbor's property in Richmond Heights, MO or to trees. 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 the centerpiece of your patio or terrace? Or in your pergola or pavilion so you can enjoy a fire when the weather isn't ideal? Or next to the swimming pool so you can stay warm while swimming at night.
- What kind of fire pit do I want? There are several types of fire pits. Do you want a standard, low-sitting circle to keep you warm as you sit around it? 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 brick or marble custom fire pit? Or something more modern?
