A fire pit can make a fantastic addition to your outdoor living space because it can not only provide you with a place to gather around when the weather is chilly here in Oregon, but can also enhance the overall value of your property. If you want to design a fire pit from scratch, there are some things that you'll want to consider. First, you'll want to decide what size and shape you want your fire pit to be. Then, you'll need to consider what material you want your fire pit to be built out of, and you'll need to make sure that the material you pick is not only aesthetically pleasing but will also be able to withstand the high temperatures it will need to endure. Finally, you'll want to decide which fuel source you want it to burn. By considering all of these things before moving forward with a fire pit installation project, you'll be able to feel confident that you'll end up with a fire pit that you'll absolutely love!
What size and shape do you want your new fire pit to be?
One of the most important things to take into consideration when designing a fire pit from scratch is the size and shape you want it to be. When it comes to the size of your fire pit, you'll want to make sure that you choose a fire pit that will be able to fit into the space where you want it perfectly. Make sure to take into consideration things like how much space will be left around it for chairs so that you end up with a fire pit that can accommodate as many people as possible. You'll also want to think about the shape you want your fire pit to be so that it meets your aesthetic preferences.
You'll want to consider what type of material you want your new fire pit to be built out of.
Another decision that you'll need to make when designing a fire pit from scratch is what material you want your new fire pit to be built out of. While there are various materials available that you'll be able to choose from, one of the best options is concrete pavers. This material is perfect for fire pits because they can withstand the high temperatures that they will be subjected to and they don't require much maintenance to stay looking their best. What's more, concrete pavers are available in different sizes, shapes, and colors, so you can customize them to your liking.
What fuel source do you want your fire pit to burn?
The last thing you'll need to consider when designing a fire pit from scratch is what type of fuel you want it to burn. There are a few options available, including wood, gas, and propane. All of these options will give you the same result in the long run, a fire, so it all comes down to your personal preference. If you're looking for a true campfire experience, wood is the way to go. Wood-burning fire pits provide the smell and smoke of a natural fire, along with the crackling sounds of burning wood, making it a great option for those who want an authentic fire experience.
A great benefit of wood-burning fire pits is that their smoke can help deter mosquitoes!
