Top 6 outdoor fire pit designs on the market
Functional outdoor spaces are now a must-have, no matter whether you're located in the middle of town or a quiet rural oasis. Everyone wants their own outdoor haven, especially as the last few years have meant spending more time at home than many of us planned! Various lockdowns and restrictions meant more time assessing whether our home space was conducive to relaxation and had received the attention it deserves.
Now that social gatherings are becoming a more normal occurrence, our home entertaining areas are seeing renewed focus. As the focal point for entertaining guests and family members again, many homeowners are looking at new ways to reinvigorate these social hubs. Fire pits are the perfect addition to any social area.
Traditionally fire pits were just pits dug into the backyard, lined with stones or bricks and were quite simple features. With demand for an outdoor social destination in the backyard increasing, the humble fire pit is now going from strength to strength. More people are utilising their at-home spaces by incorporating entertainment and relaxation hubs that can be enjoyed by all ages.
Another great benefit of incorporating a fire pit is that you don’t need a huge budget. There are many affordable options out there, and styles to suit all tastes. You can even choose between a built-in feature fire pit or a moveable one. While the former can be built into the style of the outdoor space the latter is transportable so you never have to leave your fire pit behind or leave it out when not in use.
In this blog, we have collected our top 6 fire pit types that are on the market here in New Zealand. They range from style, functionality and price.
