Installing at least a small fire pit in your backyard is something that every homeowner should consider. Those things not only transform the entire look of the patio, becoming its centerpiece, but also create a special calming and warming atmosphere of staying somewhere in the wild and sitting near the fire, when in fact you’re just several feet away from the house. Some people not only manage to use them as the place to sit around during cold spring or even summer nights, but also cook on them.
Designs of fire pit for small patio vary drastically, ranging from a little mobile firebox that may be installed on floor, on table or just wherever you wish to small, but traditional fireboxes, which have a metal base and stone edges. Some of these smaller items are typically gas-powered; some of them consist of a simple metal base of weird shape, where the wood is burning. You may even opt for a little firepot that looks just like something a houseplant would normally grow in. Of course, it’s not really functional, but if you put some time and effort, you’ll be able to fry your marshmallow by the end of the evening on it.
However, you may also incorporate a traditional small outdoor fire pit into your patio table, so that your family members and friends could stretch their hands and feel the pleasant warmth of burning fire while you’re having a nice outdoor dinner without having to lean to the floor. And, they get to eat normally, just as they would eat at home, but with the only difference that they get to enjoy fresh air and other delights of the nature while sitting around a small patio fire pit, which definitely encourages frank and easy flowing conversations.
If you don’t want to build it as a part of patio table, you may easily set it up on the ground. And, you won’t really need to carry out too many construction activities. You’ll just have to set up a metal base pit and decorate it with huge stones and gravel or in any other way you like.
