A Modern Fire Pit Extravaganza

A fire pit is a gorgeous and engaging choice when you are deciding on your backyard decor, and whether you simply love a good blaze from time to time or you are someone who throws a great party, a fire pit can change everything. You can make it your focal point or you can make it a simple complementary feature in your yard. What many people do not understand is that a modern fire pit can come in almost any form that you like. Consider some of these options and see how it could change the way that your backyard looks.

Stone half-bowl

If you feel the call for fire but you want to make sure that your yard retains a certain modern sensibility, take a moment to consider a stone half-bowl design. This design is something that is quite lovely and does very well when you have other stone ornamentation in the yard. The simplicity of the design recalls classic Greek architecture, and the smoothness of the shape is one that matches any yard with either a simple modern or classical sensibility. This is a lovely permanent feature in your yard, and you can choose a type of stone that matches your decor very well.

Fire Pit Surrounded By Chairs

Raised circle

A modern fire pit does not have to be fancy to be quite lovely. Choose one that’s made out of stone that matches your patio and create a raised platform for the fire you want to build. This raised circle design is another permanent feature, and it is a wonderful way to enjoy a blaze without worrying about damage to the firepit itself. There is no metal to singe, and the brick holds the heat and the flame very nicely. This is a traditional design, but you can enhance it by adding metal trim around the edges or by using special stones that contrast with your patio instead of matching it.

Direct in the ground

A fire pit that is built directly into the ground has a very low profile, but it can make a fire feel much more intimate and a great deal more primal. A ground-inset fire pit is a great choice when you are not worried about children or dogs running into it, and when you love the feeling and the aesthetic of fire pit that resembles a campfire. These firepits can be embedded right in the stone of your patio, and they are quite easy to maintain.


Long fire pit

A long fire pit is an excellent choice when you are looking for something modern and out of the ordinary. A long fire pit allows many people to sit at it, and whether you want to socialize or toast marshmallows and hot dogs, lighting it is truly a social event.
