Many Youngstown, OH, homeowners enjoy the beauty and convenience of an outdoor fire pit during different seasons. Fire pits can be the ideal focal point and create an inviting space for small and larger gatherings. To get the most out of your fire pit experience, consider adding details that will enhance its use, versatility, and comfort. Here are some ideas for adding flair and function to your fire pit:
A pre-built fire pit kit
A convenient option for many homeowners is installing a pre-built fire pit kit that adds instant charm and appeal to your backyard. The Rivercrest Fire Pit Kit can be added to an existing patio and comes with a fire pit grill that fits safely into the fire pit. If you are looking for a more versatile option, the Sunset Fire Pit Kit comes in square and round shapes and is available in five different color options that give a sophisticated touch.
Because of a fire pit’s natural openness, it’s easy to plan and place circular or semi-circular permanent seating around it. Adding a seating area shapes the space, making a visual statement that brings out the originality and character of your outdoor living area. The built-in seating can be built above or in-ground, which gives a sunken look. Unilock’s concrete wall systems come in different shapes, sizes, and colors, perfect for creating a seating area that will match the design of your fire pit.
Unilock Rivercrest Wall comes in two neutral shades, Coastal Slate and Buff that give a cozy, warm appearance. These color options are great if you already have a fire pit that is not built with Unilock wall units because their rocky texture tends to complement both modern and traditional landscape design.
If you are planning on building a fire pit from scratch, consider Estate Wall. This wall unit offers earthy tones that blend easily with the surrounding elements. With a matching seating wall, you can create the ultimate gathering place. Estate Wall is available in four different shades, Almond Grove, Granite, Sierra, and Walnut.
Coping and Accent Units
Coping adds instant visual interest to your fire pit and provides an additional seating spot or platform on which to put up your feet. Ledgestone coping is one of the most popular Unilock coping systems because of its widely compatible natural appearance. You truly can’t go wrong by choosing this universal coping option for your fire pit design because of its beauty, quality, and optimized design selection.
Brussels Fullnose coping is an option with stylish, rounded edges. This coping option comes in different colors that are sure to match the style of any fire pit and patio. You can use the colors Mocha or Limestone, for example, to highlight the attractive features of the fire pit.
Accent wall units are amazing in giving definition to the overall fire pit design. Just including a band of a dark, complementary shade will create a dramatic effect. Any shade from the color options of Pisa2 will help you make a solid statement because of its bold look. You can use accent pavers to create interesting laying patterns around the fire pit too. Achieve a dramatic look with Hollandstone in the shade Rustic Red or Charcoal, for example.
