4 Questions to Ask Yourself Before You Get a Custom Fire Pit in St. Peters, MO
Poynter designs custom fire pits because we know that one or two designs aren't the best for every outdoor space. We'll be able to give you the fire pit fits your tastes and how you envision yourself using it. Below are four essential questions to ask before deciding what kind of fire pit you want:
- Should I get a permanent installation, 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 is easily removed to make room for a crowd 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 top use wood. There's nothing like the crackle and pop of wood on a chilly night, and you'll be able to put your St. Peters, MO friends and family in awe with your ability to create a sustainable fire.
- What part of my yard do I want the fire pit in? If you decide to go with a permanent permanent, local ordinances or your homeowners' association may have rules about how close the fire pit can be to neighbor's property in St. Peters, 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 the centerpiece of your patio or terrace? Or in your pergola or pavilion so you can enjoy a fire when it's raining? Or next to the swimming pool so you can stay warm between dips in the pool.
- What type of fire pit do I want? Fire pits come in all shapes and sizes. Do you want a standard, low-sitting circle to keep you warm as you sit around it? 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 kind of style custom fire pit do you want? Do you want a classic looking stone custom fire pit? Or something more modern?
