Designing the Ideal Fire Pit Area for your Hartford, CT Patio

 

Add ambience and warmth to your Hartford, CT, patio with a stunning fire pit design that you can enjoy all year round. There are many design options for fire pits for your patio. The one you choose should reflect your personality and goals for enjoying welcoming warmth of a blazing fire pit.

On one hand are fire pit designs that are flat and flush with the ground. On the other hand, there are fire pits with a raised profile. The decision on the choice of design should be based on your own design preferences and the space you have to work with. Integrating Unilock wallstone can create a highly functional, highly durable and highly attractive fire pit in styles that range from rustic yet defined, to sleek and modern.

Here are some ideas for designing the fire pit that works best for your home and landscape theme:

 

Rocking Chairs around a Circular Fire Pit

For a truly laid back, country feel, consider a circular Rivercrest Fire Pit Kit with rocking chairs for seating. This fire pit resembles one built from stacked flagstone slabs, giving it a rustic country charm. The circular shape provides ample space for moveable patio furniture to be placed around the fire pit and with rocking chairs arranged around the fire, this layout is sure to be a conversation starter and a favorite spot for deep relaxation. The ample Ledgestone coping around the top of the fire pit edge provides a surface to rest the feet and warm them by the fire.

Square Fire Pit with Sofas

For the height of fireside comfort, outdoor sofas are a must. Sofas go well with a square fire pit design, allowing them to fit effectively along the pit’s straight edges. One such fire pit that works well with this sort of setup is the square Sunset Fire Pit Kit. This kit consists of a base of Brussels Dimensional Stone, providing the look of aged, quarried rock; a Copthorne banding accent, adding the warmth of fired clay brick; and Ledgestone coping for a neat and attractive finish.

 

Circular Fire Pit with Permanent Seating

Adding permanent seating to your fire pit area provides both comfort and convenience, as well as the opportunity to extend the aesthetic of the attractive wallstone used to construct the fire pit. Estate Wall or RomanWall units are ideal for creating an aged, elegant look for both fire pit and seating. Remember to include comfortable coping in your permanent seating design. Brussels Fullnose and Ledgestone are both excellent choices for this, ensuring a smooth surface to sit on and an edge that won’t snag on clothing or skin. A backing to your seating is ideal. This can also double as a bar counter, a serving area for food, or simply a surface on which to place plant containers, lighting or ornaments. For this sort of design, permanent seating can enclose half the fire pit while leaving room open for additional moveable seating if required.
