The visual combination of fire and water can absolutely transform the pool area of your Flint, Midland, or Bay City, MI, residence. By including a fire pit that complements the poolside setting you can create an inviting, elegant space that wows with its breathtaking appearance. Here are some ideas to help you achieve this effect:
Recreate the Feel of Old Elegance
If the style of your landscape, including your poolside setting, leans towards the traditional, a fire pit built with Brussels Dimensional System will enhance the antique appearance of your home. This choice offers quality coping options that drastically enhance the look of any outdoor element. Brussels Fullnose coping, for example, is a versatile coping option that matches a pool’s smooth, rounded edges and highlights it with its earthy tones. This combination of wall unit and coping option for your fire pit creates structure and a weathered charm in your landscape.
Incorporate a Natural Look
There is no better way to accentuate your poolside setting than with the look and feel of natural stone. Build your fire pit with Estate Wall to give your poolside a classic touch. This wall unit is incredibly flexible and can be used as a material for both square and round fire pits – the latter ideal for creating a soft, organic appearance. Available in two color options, Sandstone and Sierra, Estate Wall by Unilock reflects the look of aged, natural rock.
An especially suitable option for circular fire pits that recreate the authentic look of natural stone is Rivercrest Wall. Using this unit for your fire pit works great if you want the look of flagstone without the high cost associated with natural stone. Rivercrest Wall is not only known for its durability and natural look, but also for its charm and stylish appearance that will enhance the design of any type of poolside setting. This wall unit can be found in two color options, Coastal Slate and Buff. A coping option that creates a vivid color contrast is Estate Wall coping available in two color options, Sandstone and Sierra.
The style and design of your seating area around the fire pit can also influence the look of your poolside setting. A combination of Estate Wall and Ledgestone coping will distinguish the seating area from the other landscape elements and at the same time complement the fire pit and surrounding greenery.
Enjoy Modern Style
Lineo Dimensional Stone enhances the look of modern residences and modern poolside designs. Its contemporary, sleek lines give an exceptionally clean touch that highlights colorful landscape features. This stone option is available in four shades, including Mahogany Ash, Midnight Charcoal, Limestone, and Sandstone. The deep, dark Midnight Charcoal shade is great for creating banding in the upper part of the fire pit.
