As we spend more and more time in our gardens this summer and finally get to entertain family and friends outdoors, keeping warm as the sun goes down becomes a necessity, especially given the unreliability of the British summer. And, when it comes to outdoor heating, a fire pit is a great option, stylish, affordable, and super easy to set up and use, a firepit allows us to all come together and keep the party going long into the night.
Outdoor Fire Pits
With a variety of Fire Pits available to suit both larger gardens and smaller outside spaces, finding one that is perfect for your requirements couldn’t be easier. As well as Fire Pits and Outdoor Fireplaces, there are also versatile, multiple-use options available such as fire pits that double as barbecues, for example, these Fire Pit/BBQ Grill combos allow you to purchase just one outdoor living accessory for heating, lighting, and cooking. There are also fire pits with removable inserts which can instantly transform into a useful side table.
The majority of outdoor firepits require only minimal assembly and are easy to use and clean. Whilst most manufacturers will still recommend the use of a protective cover to maintain the firepit, they are suitable to leave outside, all year round, with only minimal maintenance, making them a cost-effective outdoor heating option.
