One of the fast-growing trends for outdoor spaces in 2016 is the addition of fire pits. While this feature has been around for a while, the interest is growing as consumers seek to add additional conversation and entertainment areas to their landscape.
Fire pit design can be as unique as the individual consumer. Fire pits can run from off-the-shelf products to simple DIY projects to professional installations that combine several competing elements (such as a fire pit combined with a water feature – like these pictured on Houzz.com http://www.houzz.com/fire-and-water-features).
Hardware and home improvement retailers can provide consumers with a wide variety of materials to complete a DIY fire pit build, and can also carry a variety of ready-to-assemble and ready-to-use products for those customers who are less interested in a project but still want a fire feature.
Some examples of off-the-shelf products include:
- The Baton Rouge, the Savannah, and the Big Sky Stars and Moon fire pits from Landmann (http://www.landmann-usa.com/#!copy-of-copy-of-fire-place-grates/clmg)
- The Roman Fire Pit or the Bellante Woven Cast Aluminum LPG Fire Pit by Fire Sense (http://shop.firesense.com/collections/fire-pits)
- The LPG Outdoor Fire Bowl with Slate and Marble Mantle by Blue Rhino (http://www.bluerhino.com/Outdoor-Living-Products/Fireplaces-and-Firepits/LP-Gas-Outdoor-Fireplaces.aspx)
