Looking for a fun and exciting way to upgrade your outdoor living? Look no further, because Patio Productions has the answer for you: fire pit !!! We can’t think of a better way to create memories with friends and family than around a cozy fire. Outdoor living used to be a thing of the summer, but fire pits now make it possible to enjoy your patio year-round.
Fire pits have taken patio heaters to the next level. According to a survey conducted by the American Society of Landscape Architects, the top three most popular outdoor design elements for 2018 include fire pits/fireplaces (66.0 percent), lighting (65.4 percent) and seating/dining areas (64.0 percent).
Why Have Fire Pits Grown in Popularity?
- Price: Fire pits are significantly cheaper than fireplaces, allowing more people to afford them. As Hearth & Home puts it, for relatively few dollars, a lifestyle can be created.
- Size: Not everyone has a large enough backyard for a fireplace. Fire pits, however, come in different sizes and shapes to fit any patio.
- Style: Fire pits are not only a fun accessory to your patio, but they also look good! Add some chairs around it and you’ve got a dreamy outdoor living space.
John Egan shared a good point made by the president of H&M Landscaping, Mark Mazzurco: “People are working harder and longer days, as well as being so engaged with their kids’ sports and other activities. With their time no longer a commodity, it is easier to walk into their backyard and spend time together, rather than having to schedule a weekend off to go enjoy it at a resort.” Fire pits— bringing families together!
Benefits of Adding a Fire Pit to Your Patio
- Creates a welcoming atmosphere
Fire pits are perfect for every occasion. Whether you’re enjoying a relaxed night with your family or hosting a bonfire party with friends, fire pits set the mood for an enjoyable night. And the best part, you don’t have to wait until summer to come back around to enjoy your patio!
- Lights up the night
Not only can fire pits look good, giving you a sense of upscale patio living, but they also feel good! Smiles are not the only thing to light up the night anymore. Fire pits will keep everyone happy– and of course, cozy!
- Serves as a primary kitchen
Nothing gives more of a warm fuzzy feeling than making those s’ mores you’ve been craving. Mmm! Because yes, fire pits also serve another purpose: cooking.
In fact, Hearth, Patio & Barbecue found out that there’s a new trend with patios and fire pits, and that is that they serve as the new primary kitchens and dining rooms for a lot of homes.
Customize Fire Pit & Increase Home Value
The nice thing about fire pits is that no matter how big or small your patio is, there’s a fire pit for you. That’s because fire pits come in different shapes and sizes. You can select every detail starting with its frame material to its fuel type and more. In fact, you can get as precise as you’d like. You can even add tables and chairs around it and choose your table height in order to make the best use of your space.
Patio Productions has styles from modern to traditional, to transitional and mid-century. You can also select your table type, material, and shape. Propane, natural gas, or wood? We carry them all.
Also, keep in mind that a patio on its own will add value to your home when it comes time to sell it. Fire pits will help boost your home’s value or chances of selling that much more. People searching for a home are more inclined to buy one that has a fireplace or firepit already in place. But for now, enjoy it yourself for as many summers or winters as you wish!
