Over the years, we at Setting Sun Patios & Decks have received several projects to construct fire pits in Raleigh, Cary, Wake Forest, Garner and Apex. Fire pits have proven to be more convenient and economical than fireplaces, in some incidences. It mostly depends on the design and personal preference.
Our clients in Chapel Hill, Durham, Morrisville, Knightdale and Clayton are all enjoying the benefits and the charm of a great fire pit. Not only are fire pits generally easy to install and great looking, but they also fit in well with small backyards and patios.
Diverse Fire PitsFire pits can fit into any design concept easily. Unlike fireplaces, they don’t generally dominate your outdoors; they just add an interesting element to it. There are different types of fire pits available to choose from.
- Fire Bowls: Fire bowls are, perhaps, the most popular form of fire pits. They’re generally made from precast concrete and can be very easily installed within a matter of hours. They’re a great addition to modern and contemporary designs as generally look sleek, clean and minimalistic. You can also opt for a variety of sizes as they can be small enough to be placed on tabletops or large enough to dominate your yard. You can also order custom fire pit bowls depending on your requirements.
- Fire Table: This fire pit design combines functionality with aesthetic appeal. In this design, the fire pit is placed within a table, usually in the center. You can use this table for dining or as a coffee table. You can also pick any shape or design you want. This way, you’re saving money by not having to purchase a separate outdoor table, and are adding something unique to your landscape.
- Fire Hearths: These can replicate the look of fireplaces and yet not cost as much. This design usually stands against a wall. They can be a centerpiece or a focal point of your backyard. You get the grandeur and drama of a fireplace at less cost and effort.
