Imagine gathering around a toasty warm fire as the flames dance and crackle before your eyes. If this sounds like a fun way to spend the evenings at your Redmond and Snoqualmie, WA, area home, it may be time to add a fire pit to your landscape. A landscape design that includes a fire pit combination will not just elevate the appearance of your property but provide you with a relaxing way to enjoy the outdoors. Here are some additional reasons to have a fire pit built:
Expand the Usability of Your Landscape
Whether the fire pit is built in a little-used area of your landscape or sits in a prominent location, it will give you and your family a big reason to go outside more often. The addition of this outdoor masonry structure will be an inviting draw for friends and family members. You can have the fire pit built on your backyard paver patio or situate it down a lovely paver walkway to your side yard amid a more natural setting.
Improve Your Entertaining Options
A fire pit addition can also help you with your entertaining goals. Maybe you are having a new outdoor kitchen built in your backyard and you’re looking to add some additional masonry structures to go along with it. A fire pit will be a nice accompaniment to your alfresco cooking area, by offering something to admire when the dining is done.
A fire pit also becomes one of those features you wonder how you lived without if it is placed on the pool deck—living luxuriously means being able to walk out of the pool and getting warm by the fire pit on a cooling evening. Pool parties are simply better with the addition of a fire pit for people to gather around after a long swim.
Promote Family Time
If you’ve been looking for ways to get your kids away from their electronic devices for a while and encourage them to go outside, the addition of a fire pit may be a way to do so. You can enjoy family game nights around a warm cozy fire. Add an outdoor dining table and chairs to your patio area and settle in by the fire pit to play games.
Create a Lovely Visual
The sight of a bright, crackling fire is a lovely visual your family and friends are sure to adore. Whether you and your family members just want to enjoy the sights and sounds of the lovely fire pit flames or you like to host cocktail parties and gatherings with friends, the beautiful sight of the fire burning within the fire pit is sure to be a pleasing vision.
The fires you’ll burn in the fire pit aren’t just lovely to view but they’re also warm and cozy. You won’t have to hide indoors anymore, even in the fall, when there’s a chill in the air.
