"Fire Pit" is a general term for flames 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 mostly depend on how you use it.

They're great for having people over for dinner or socializing. 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 patio tables, decks, or small tables around a pool. They're ideal for keeping hands warm while you eat and discouraging mosquitoes.

4 Questions to Ask Yourself When Getting a Custom Fire Pit in Webster Groves, MO
Poynter offers custom fire pits because we know that one or two designs aren't the best for every outdoor space. You need to find the fire pit that is perfect for your home 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 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.
- 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.
On the other hand, you may prefer top burn wood. There's nothing like the sound of crackling wood on a cool night, and you'll be able to put your Webster Groves, 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 permanent, Webster Groves, MO regulations or your homeowners' association may have restrictions on how close the fire pit can be to neighbor's property in Webster Groves, 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 close to the swimming pool so you can stay warm between dips in the pool.
- 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 during cocktails and mingling? Or a table-height fire pit, that you can drinks, appetizers, or dessert over?
