5 Things to Consider When Designing Fire Pits

Home Improvement

If you want to create a gathering place in your backyard, then you might want to consider installing a fire pit. The first thing you might think of when you hear “fire pit” is the typical campground-style fire pit with just a metal cylinder sitting on the ground, and you might wonder why you’d want that in your backyard. Fire pits have come a long way, and they can now be used to create beautiful focal points in your yard. You can choose from a variety of options to create fire pits in Torrance, CA. Here are some things you will probably want to discuss with your contractor when you design your fire pit.


It doesn’t really matter what size your yard is because fire pits can be customized to fit any space. When you look at your yard, you should consider where the best place is to build a fire pit. Ask yourself these questions: Is it easily accessible from the house? Is it too close to neighbors? What are the city ordinances for fire pits? You’ll have to make sure that the fire is the appropriate distance from all buildings in order to comply with city codes. Once you choose a location, you’ll be able to determine how big the fire pit can be. It’s not that the fire pit itself changes size, it’s the patio and surrounding location that you can alter to fit your space.


Fire pits can be a beautiful addition to any yard. You can choose to use concrete, natural stone, pavers, wood, gravel, or any other number of materials available. Sometimes it’s even nice to mix and match various materials to add texture and dimension. Adding a nice patio around the fire pit creates a place to relax and enjoy the outdoors.


The purpose in creating fire pits is to provide a place to gather around and spend time with friends and family. Seating is an important part of your fire pit. After you know how much space you have to work with, you can decide whether you prefer benches, chairs, or permanent seating. There are pros and cons to each. Permanent seating is always there, and it’s built out of the same materials as your fire pit and patio, but it’s not possible to move the seating to get out of the smoke. Benches and chairs provide flexibility, but they can get tipped over or broken. When you know how you’ll be utilizing your fire pit, you’ll be better prepared to make choices about the seating that will fit your needs.


If you don’t think you’ll have access to firewood on a regular basis, you can opt to install a gas-burning fire pit. You can choose from countless designs if you decide to use a gas fire pit. You can still enjoy the warmth, ambiance, and marshmallow-roasting opportunities the same as you can with wood-burning. If you choose to install a wood-burning fire pit, you’ll just need a fire ring that can be dressed up with stone or pavers. Both options function well to create a luxury fire pit.


Lights are important, especially if your fire pit is further from your house. Although the fire will add a warm glow, you might need lighting for other purposes too. There might be times when the fire pit patio is used without actually starting a fire.

Sometimes it is helpful to look at samples of other fire pits when you design your own. Contractors should have sample materials available for you to look at as well. There are a lot of things to consider when creating fire pits in Torrance, CA, but you’ll enjoy the space for years to come.
