If you’ve ever been camping, then you know relaxing around the fire is a great way to spend an evening with family and friends. But the campfire experience doesn’t have to stay at the campground. More and more families are choosing to install a fire pit in their backyard.
Just picture it:
- Put on a sweater and go outside anytime to sit by the fire and gaze at the stars
- Enjoy a drink with family and friends around your fire pit
- Roast marshmallows and make s’mores in the middle of fall
While there are many social aspects to having a fire pit, there are other reasons you should consider adding one to your backyard.
Boost your home value
Should you decide to sell your home at some point, a fire pit is a very attractive and appealing feature.
Prospective home buyers will be able to visualize themselves enjoying the backyard with friends and family surrounded by a roaring fire.
As a matter of fact, according to ExtraSpace.com:
- Homeowners can recoup 78% of the costs of installing a fire pit
- A fire pit was rated a perfect 10 when it comes to enjoyment
Spend more time in the backyard
It’s always nice to spend time in the backyard.
But throughout fall and into early winter, it’s challenging to be outdoors, especially if the weather gets colder and there’s no real focal point to your outdoor space.
With a fire pit, you can get more enjoyment from your backyard because it provides a source of warmth and light.
Many styles and design choices to choose from
There are so many shapes and sizes of fire pits for you to choose from. For example:
- Sleek, modern, and round
- Classic and linear
Whether you’re completely transforming your backyard – or simply want to create additional ambiance – you’re certain to find the right fire pit for you.
In addition to warmth and light, a fire pit can provide functionality.
For example, a fire pit can be a gathering spot for enjoying a cup of coffee for family or friends. Some fire pits come with table top which allows them to serve as somewhat of a dining table.
And, of course, a fire pit can be another outdoor cooking appliance. Besides marshmallows and s’mores, you can grill hot dogs or even pop popcorn on your fire pit.
