Outdoor firepits are one of the most popular outdoor living design trends right now, and with good reason: they add a unique, fun and relaxing element to any outdoor space. There are many options for outdoor firepit designs. The one that's right for your backyard or deck should reflect your personality and goals for enjoying the welcoming warmth of a blazing firepit.
Gas & Wood Firepits
The first questions to answer for an outdoor firepit design is the same you'd ask if you were about to install a pool: in-ground or above ground?
Standard firepit designs are flat and flush with the ground. Others can have a raised profile. Ultimately the decision is yours and should be based on your own design preferences and the space you have to work with. Some common firepit designs incorporate decorative paving stones or fire-resistant bricks to line the exterior of the firepit. This can create a refined, yet rustic design. Additionally, some firepit designs use smooth river rocks or colored glass within the pit itself, another eye-catching touch which can give a firepit a unique quality. Other considerations for your fire pit include the shape—commonly, firepits are either square or round—the placement, and whether it is a gas or firepit. A gas firepit requires municipal permitting and special expertise in order to ensure you safely tap into your home’s gas supply, a service that Titan, LLC. can manage and provide. Anchorage municipal code also calls for firepits to be at least 15 feet away from the house.
Outdoor Family Gatherings
Firepits do not always have to be stand alone islands in the middle of the yard. Many people prefer to place their firepit within their deck design. Others prefer a firepit that stands alone in the backyard or connects to a deck via a walkway. There are many different ways to incorporate a fire patio into a landscape, hardscape or deck design.
