It has always been my dream to have an outdoor fire pit in the backyard to roast marshmallows with the kids during the summer. I had the best time camping with my family when we were younger so I really want to bring back those memories in a bit less rustic way with fire pit ideas like these. I love a luxury backyard set up, and this design really takes the cake. It incorporates an awesome seating area that encourages intimate conversations and fun parties while not overwhelming the entire backyard. Even better, the sitting area surrounds a really cool outdoor propane fire pit that is subtle and elegant. These are supposed to be the easiest to install and maintain so, of course, I am planning on using that in my yard.
My partner and I have been wanting to add an outdoor fire pit to our backyard for the longest time, but we just didn't know what style, shape or size would look best in our outdoor entertaining area. Of course our backyard patio designs are not as grand as the awesome space in these photos, but we have a similar architectural style on the exterior of our home and a large sandstone patio like they do. I really like The ultra modern design they used for this fire feature because it makes it look like an awesome piece of modern art that decorates the place, rather than just a functional object that takes away from the overall decor. I definitely want to try to find an outdoor gas fire pit enclosed in glass like this, and maybe even with the cement eggs to perfectly imitate the design.
If you are looking for inspiration to find the best outdoor fire pit ideas, check out these pictures my friend recently renovated the exterior of his house and added this backyard entertainment area. I could not be more in love with it. Next to the outdoor kitchen is a large dining table that makes for a great area to host a party. The best part of the whole renovation is the addition of the outdoor fire pit. There is ample seating around the fire that makes for the perfect place to relax and enjoy an evening cocktail with friends. Another great thing about this outdoor oasis is that the whole area is covered by a roof. So you don’t have to worry about your time outside being cut short by rain.
I am absolutely loving our new outdoor fire pit that we just had installed in our backyard patio area. As you can see, we have done a ton of updates out there this year and have really worked to make the place look chic and modern. For this reason, we wanted to keep the backyard fire pit ideas that we utilized just as contemporary and chic as the rest of the decor so that it would not take away from the overall look of the space. White and emerald green has been our color palette of choice out there so it was a natural choice to mimic those shades in the fire element. We chose a fire pit table in the same white sandstone as the surrounding bench and retaining wall.
My colleagues and I are absolutely loving an outdoor fire pit for this upcoming summer season. Fire pit landscaping is one of those trends that many designers baulk at because a lot of the designs just aren't that appealing; however, homeowners really love them when they are installed and the bring so much fun and functionality to your outdoor entertaining spaces. For this reason, I have made it my mission to make these sometimes unsightly features, an awesome (and beautiful) element of your outdoor landscaping. My favorite way to blend an outside fire pit with the rest of your decor is to finish it in the same stone or material as you patio, then accent that primary product with things like natural stone, glass or stamped cement.
An outdoor fire pit is one of those backyard features that you don't realize how much you will love it until it is installed. I was inspired by these photos that I found while browsing online for the best outdoor fire pit ideas to use in a wooded yard. I would not go so far as to say that we live in the mountains, but we certainly have a rocky wooded property that has a lot of natural beauty. For this reason, we want our outdoor entertaining space and wood burning fire pit to have a very rustic yet elegant look, just like the gorgeous home in these photos. I think that the large stone patio pavers that coordinate with the home's exterior are the perfect foundation for the entire entertaining area, and then the fire pit material coordinates perfectly with the rest of the space.
