If you are looking to build a new home one thing is for sure, indoor-outdoor flow is key when it comes to deciding on the final layout and design. Take a look at any building company and their new build options.
Functional and well utilised outdoor spaces are now a must-have no matter if you are located in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the town or a quiet rural oasis. Everyone wants their own outdoor haven. Throw in a Fire Pit and you’ve got yourself a spot you can enjoy all year round.
Traditionally Fire Pits were just holes, dug into the backyard, lined with stones and finished off by some wood thrown on top. With the demand for an outdoor social destination in the backyard, the evolution of fire pits is now going from strength to strength as more people are utilising their 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. However, if you are wanting to splash out there are numerous options to consider that can suit any style. They are also super transportable so you never have to leave your Fire Pit behind.
