Why Fire Pits Are a Great Idea for Your Backyard

If you and your family enjoy spending time on your deck, patio, porch, or other outdoor living space, you may want to consider adding a fire pit to the area. With a firepit, you are able to take advantage of spending time outdoors no matter what the weather may be. IBD Outdoor Rooms specializes in designing gas-fueled fire pits that are convenient and chore-free. We have several styles of fire pit housings in different standard shapes and sizes, and we can help you choose the best style for your outdoor living space.


Variety of Shapes and Styles

Whether you are wanting an elaborate fire pit that will be the focal point of your outdoor living space or a simple fire pit to provide a gathering place for friends and family, IBD Outdoor Rooms can help you design the perfect fire pit for your backyard. Our most popular design is the octagonal fire pit, but we also have round, square, wedge, oval, and rectangular shaped fire pit housings. If you are looking for something unique, we can show you our Stratford and tall pedestal housings. We carry different sizes of each shape that can fit 19-inch and 25-inch gas burners.

Variety of Uses

Not only does a fire pit give light and warmth to your outdoor living space, but you can also cook food by placing a grate or grill over your fire pit. A fire pit can be even better than a regular grill if you have a larger fire pit that will allow you to cook for a large crowd. You can also treat your fire pit like a campfire to roast hot dogs and marshmallows on skewers. No matter whether you choose to use your fire pit for cooking or not, you can still use your fire pit as a place to gather with friends and family and enjoy the outdoors by watching a fire. If you need a focal point for your outdoor living space, a fire pit can provide the perfect one.

Safety and Ease of Usage

Gas fire pits are very safe to use if they are built and installed properly. You will want to ensure your fire pit is at least 10 feet away from any structure or combustible surface to avoid any accidental fires. Gas fire pits are also very easy to use as you use a knob or switch to turn it off and on and control the flame. You will not have to worry about gathering wood for the fire or cleaning up ashes after a fire with a gas fire pit.
