With fall in full-swing and temperatures cooling off, it’s the best time of year to have a fire pit. Not only do they serve to add warmth to an outdoor space, but they also bring a lot of style to it, too. There are a range of cool options out there, from the inexpensive to the fully customized. Whichever route you go, one is sure to add some charm (and maybe even some fun if you plan to roast s’mores) to your patio or backyard. I’ve gathered 10 design ideas for fire pits that I think are especially cool, so check them out.
Design Ideas for an Outdoor Fire Pit
1 If you have a large outdoor space, creating multiple conversation areas is easy to do with a couple of fire pits. Let them be the focal point for comfortable outdoor furniture.
2 To capture a natural, rustic look, a stone fire pit is the way to go. It costs a little more but will blend in seamlessly with the outdoors.
3 I love the look of a sunken deck with wrap-around seating. (Especially if it has a view like that!) They create a cozy atmosphere that is the perfect conversation area, especially a fire pit in the middle that keeps everyone warm.
4 If you really want to go rustic, an in-ground fire pit is perfect for sharing scary stories over and roasting s’mores. The stone around it keeps it safe and gives you an intimate space for some chairs. A few lanterns set about will help light the way.
5 Festive string lights add ambiance to this fun fire pit area with poufs and low wicker rockers for seating. The wall around the perimeter is a smart design choice, offering extra seating for guests.
6 Fire pits come in all shapes, sizes, and materials. This one looks like a large clay bowl, perfect for a rustic setting with a modern flair.
7 This sunken fire pit makes a great focal point in this backyard as a modern architectural feature. The wall also serves as extra seating.
8 For an ultra modern look, this concrete fire pit is a great choice. The river rocks echo the water view, making this space wonderfully serene.
9 This cool fire pit serves as both a table and a fire pit. It’s a nice low-key option with some streamlined contemporary style.
10If you like the idea of an outdoor space looking like a living room, then this fire pit perfect for you. The details make it look like a piece of furniture. The top even allows space for drinks and snacks.
