Fire bowls come in a vast range of sizes.

These are ideal for having people over for dinner or socializing. They look great as the centerpiece among outdoor couches.
Tabletop Fire Pits
These are the smallest type of fire pit and are designed to be placed on patio tables, decks, or small tables around a pool. They're perfect for keeping hands warm while you eat and keeping the mosquitoes away.
These will remind you most of a traditional campfire. They're simple metal rings that are placed on the ground and are easy to store when you're not using them. The fires are typically wood-burning, and rings help contain the fire.

These fire pits are taller and thinner. Some have a small bowl on top of them, while some have gas lines that produce fire directly from the column. These are ideal for smaller patios in Warson Woods, MO as they provide warmth without taking up too much space. They usually have ornate designs.
4 Questions to Ask Yourself When Getting a Custom Fire Pit in Warson Woods, MO
Poynter designs custom fire pits because we know that pre-imagined designs aren't the best for every outdoor space. You need to find the fire pit fits your tastes and how you envision yourself using it. Below are four important questions to ask before buying a fire pit:
- Should I get a permanent structure, or a portable one? A permanent fixture can can be a great feature in an 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.
- Would I prefer a gas or wood-burning fire pit? Gas fire pits are easier to start and keep 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 crackle and pop of wood on a cool evening, and it's always nice to put your Warson Woods, MO friends and family in awe with your fire-making skills.
- Where do I want to put my fire pit? If you choose a permanent installation, local laws or your homeowners' association may have restrictions on how close the fire pit can be to neighbor's property in Warson Woods, MO or to low-hanging branches. Where's the best place for what I want to use it for? Do you want it in a secluded area for short 2-hour vacations? 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 great? Or by 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 drinks, appetizers, or dessert over?
Also, what kind of style custom fire pit do you want? Do you want a classic looking brick or marble custom fire pit? Or a sleeker, more modern look?
