It’s the perfect time of year for gathering around the fire with friends and family. Check out some unique fire features you can add to your deck or patio that will allow you to enjoy your backyard during the colder months of the year!

Unique Outdoor Fire Features

Concrete Fire Pit

Pits can be made from fire-resistant concrete and can be filled with anything that will allow a fire to burn, so don’t limit yourself to wood! For a unique take on the traditional fire pit, fill it with rocks or stones and use cooking gel for a fire that does not produce burn marks or messes.

Wok Fire Pit

Concrete can be heavy and is a more permanent fire fixture. Consider a steel wok fire pit that can be moved from place to place. During the summer months, the wok can be filled with ice and used as a drink cooler when entertaining friends and family!

Chiminea Fireplace

A chiminea fireplace has a single forward-facing opening and a tall, tapered top for collecting smoke so that it stays out of your eyes. These fireplaces are very affordable and can be found in steel, clay, copper, and cast aluminum.

Gas Fire Pit Tables

Gas fire pits don’t put out any smoke or produce ash and are a more environmentally friendly way to heat your deck or patio. They can be customized with features like colorful LED under-lighting and fireglass, which offers a unique, stylish, and modern look for your fire pit.

Tip: When installing a wood-burning fire pit on a wooden or flammable deck, always create a no-burn zone surrounding and beneath the fire pit and keep it away from furniture or any deck decor that can easily catch fire.
