If you have thought for a long time about adding a fire pit to your backyard then it is for certain that not just any fire pit will do. If looks matter to you then that is one of the things you will want to take into consideration. You will also want to think about what you will be using your fire pit for as well as whether or not safety is a concern with small children. Finally you will want to consider how long you want your fire pit to last and how much money you are willing to invest in one. Keep in mind there is a wide range of quality and price when it comes to fire pits so choosing the right pit your deck with hinge on all these factors.
There are many different styles and types of fire pits including those that you can custom order exactly how you want it. You can choose from any type of material as well as color for your fire pit, and you can choose the color of fire glass that you put in a gas fire pit adding a whole new dimension to your patio with the soft glow or reflection of the fire glass you choose. What you will use your fire pit for will also influence the type of fire pit you buy, are you looking for a warm open crackling fire of your favorite wood? Or does it appeal to you more to simply push a button and have instant fire? You can choose between gas or wood depending on how much time you want to spend messing with it and what your preference is. Of course you can also get some of the better fire pits that have interchangeable liners that allow you to choose either. How and when you plan to use your fire pit will also matter, can you see yourself eating dinner, having drinks or roasting marshmallows around your fire Pit?
Then you may be happier with a fire table, these pits have a table around the fire allowing you to relax with family or friends during a meal time or late in the evening for entertaining. If your fire pit is just for sitting around and relaxing you may not need the table, opting for a fire pit without the table allows you to have a bigger fire, get a bit closer to the fire and may save you a bit of money. If safety is a concern and you have small children you should opt for a bit better quality model fire pit that has a heavy base, wide leg span and is low enough to the ground that it will not tip easily. Some of the less expensive models are not very sturdy and can be a serious safety hazard to small children running around.
