5 Reasons You Need to Get a Firepit

If you’ve been dreaming of cool Colorado nights cuddled up by a crackling fire and copious quantities of smores, a fire pit may just be the perfect answer for you. At Pagosa Peak Custom Fireplaces in Pagosa Springs, we know your home is your sanctuary. It provides refuge from the outside world, shelters you from the stresses of life and offers one of the best staycations in the world. Those four walls hold your most valued treasures and memories too, but what about your back yard? If your back yard is less than loved here are the top five reasons why having Pagosa Peak Custom Fireplaces install a fire pit could transform your outdoor space from boring to sizzling.

Make Any Gathering Exceptional

Imagine spending nights with family and friends toasting marshmallows or even just enjoying a glass of wine as an open fire crackles beside you. The fact is, people love to gather around a fire. By installing a fire pit in your backyard, you can enjoy summer nights or even winter gatherings around a self-contained fire that offers heat, beauty, and elegance. And if you’re looking for an excuse to invite people, all you need to say is “We’re lighting up the fire pit tonight. Want to come over?”

Fire up The Beauty

All the fancy landscape lighting in the world can’t compete with flickering flames.  A fire pit allows you to control the experience. Choose from low flames or high flames, thick flames or thin flames. Use the warm light emanating from your fire pit to light up a far corner of the yard without having to deal with electricity. Fire creates a natural focal point at an outdoor gathering. Whatever type of natural lighting or relaxing ambiance you wish to create, you can do so with a custom fire pit.

Bring Style to Your Outdoor Space

When it comes to installing a fire pit, style is everything, and even a compact yard or patio can hold a fire pit. In fact, if you have a small yard, it’s sure to become the centerpiece of your space. If you build it, they will come. A fire pit is a destination, drawing in kids armed with marshmallows and adults wanting to enjoy cocktails and conversation into the cool of the evening. Honestly, it’s a wonder how any backyard party has ever gotten along without one. The design elements to choose from are endless.  You can choose between a circular, octagon or rectangular installations, and you have a lot of say when it comes to other design elements as well. For example, you can use glass crystals for a more sophisticated look or beautiful red rocks for a more natural feel.

Have a Seat

When it comes to seating, uncomfortable plastic chairs are out and natural seating is in. By installing a sitting wall around your fire pit, you and your guests can enjoy a fireside chat in both comfort and style. In a large yard, sprawl out with a big fire pit surrounded by bench seating for a crowd. If you’ve got a smaller space, remember, fire pits aren’t just for parties. A crackling fire is equally suited to romantic nights for two.

Added Value

According to a recent Houzz survey, fire pits are among the three most popular backyard additions made by renovating homeowners. In other words, fire pits are hot! And while they may add value to your home in terms of dollars and cents, the value they add to quality time with family and friends is priceless.
