An outdoor fire pit seems like such a simple addition to your external living space, but it’s amazing what a difference the right fire table can make. Check out all these uses for a fire pit and then find all your perfect backyard finishing touches at Valley Spas & Pools.
Enjoy Your Outdoor Space Year-Round
You have misters on your patio to help mitigate the scorching summer heat, but hats and sweaters can only do so much once winter rolls around. Make the most of your investment in your outdoor space by completing the upgrade with a fire pit. A simple fire in the evenings means you can sit outside and drink a cup of tea or read a book without piling on the layers or worrying that your chattering teeth will drown out the much more appealing sounds of Mother Nature.
Let There Be Light!
There’s a very practical purpose to an outdoor fire pit. As well as providing heat, fire pits provide a source of light that’s much more welcoming than garish fluorescents and more reliable than unpredictable solar lanterns. The right fire pit gives off a glow that’s ideal for reading, chatting, or watching the kids play tag as dusk settles in.
When you can’t get out of town to go camping, enjoy the same feel of a backwoods experience without having to pack the car or schlep the kids. With a fire pit at your disposal, you can roast weenies, make s’mores, and tell ghost stories as the firelight dances across the faces of your camping buddies. You can even pitch a tent to complete the effect — but no worries if everyone ends up sleeping inside in their comfy beds!
Make Date Night Brighter (And More Romantic)
Try to get a reservation in front of the fireplace at your local hotspot eatery, and you’ll quickly discover how hard it is to score a primo position, especially on coveted holidays like Valentine’s Day. For your next anniversary, keep things simple yet infinitely romantic with dinner at home. Whip up a meal or order in, then take your plates out on the patio along with a bottle of wine for an evening in front of the fire pit.
Not so handy in the kitchen? No worries. A couple of cocktails and some cuddle time by the fire is every bit as special, and you won’t have to do more than throw some ice in a glass and add your beverage of choice — the fire pit does the rest!
Expand Your Living Space
Why spend money constructing an expensive add-on when you already have outdoor living space just waiting to be utilized? Add a fire pit alongside your terrace or built-in pizza oven and suddenly you have another room — albeit one that’s more suitable for alfresco dining. Watch as the glow from your fire pit table attracts family members young and old, turning a porch into a gathering spot. Put on some music, pass around snacks, and experience first-hand what a difference one simple addition can make.
