Consider a Gas Fire Pit to Update Your Outdoor Living Space

As summer is drawing to an end, you may be wondering how to extend the use of your outdoor living space. You are loving being able to spend more time relaxing with your family and friends on your patio or outdoor kitchen space so much that you are thinking of ways to add a source of heat to the space. IBD Outdoor Rooms would like to help you provide warmth to your outdoor living space with a new gas fire pit that will allow you to hang out on the patio despite cooler temperatures. We can design the perfect fire pit housing in various shapes for various building materials that will match with the decor of your existing outdoor living space. You can choose from octagonal, round, square, wedge, oval and rectangular shapes, and we also offer a Stratford design and a tall pedestal table housing. We would like to tell you why we recommend choosing a fire pit as a way to provide heat to your outdoor room by sharing a couple of the most popular benefits of adding this feature.

Convenience of use

Although sitting around a wood-burning fire outdoors can be very atmospherically pleasing, it can be quite challenging to get the fire going quickly. The wind can make it difficult to ignite a fire, and it can also blow wood fires completely out. You also must have a supply of firewood for fuel for every fire, which means you have to have a proper storage location. With a gas fire pit, you can conveniently start up the flames in seconds with no problems by simply flipping a switch or push a button on a remote control. The Landscaping Network recommends gas fire pits for outdoor living spaces because you will be able to spend more time enjoying the fire because you will not have to spend time struggling to get a fire lighter or doing maintenance chores such as bringing in firewood and sweeping up ashes off of your patio.

Safe and clean fires

One of the best things about a gas fire pit is that you will not have to worry about smoke bothering anyone as you relax around the fire with your family and friends. A wood-burning fire can produce a lot of smoke, which can be both an annoyance and a health hazard. If you have experienced a smoky outdoors fire, you know that the smell can be absorbed by your clothes. While the scent of wood burning is pleasant, you do not want to smell like a campfire. Wood fires can also be hazardous when hot sparks and embers jump out of the fire. This can lead to someone being burned or even to an accidental fire. Hot sparks and embers are not produced by a gas fire, so you can truly relax without worrying about that hazard. In addition, the fires you will enjoy from your gas fire pit burn much cleaner with fewer fumes than wood fires, so you can also cross pollution off the list of concerns you could have with a wood fire pit.

Adding a gas fire pit to your outdoor living space increases the time you can enjoy that space and adds value to your home. Contact us at IBD Outdoor Rooms to learn more about how we can design the gas fire pit of your dreams.
