Why a Fire Pit is a Perfect Addition to Your Home

Have you been thinking about getting a fire pit but haven't made a final decision? As you start to do your research and make your pros and cons list, we want to help you move the process along. There are so many reasons why a fire pit is a perfect addition to your home! They are great for entertaining, fun for the whole family, and you can use it all year long!

If you are still considering purchasing a fire pit from Firepit Art, here are some reasons to move forward!


When you have friends and family over, wouldn’t it be nice occasionally to move the crowd outdoors? Even in a spacious house, why not enjoy this beautiful fall weather among us and enjoy some fresh air? Although it seems like a good idea to get outside, our outdoor living space isn’t exactly welcoming. A Firepit not only brings warmth to your backyard or outdoor space, but it also creates a center point to gather. People flock towards a fire pit because not only are they beautiful, but they serve a purpose for you and your guests. Your friends will love to have a drink, eat good food, and spend time together around this perfect addition.

Cooking together 

There may not be room for everyone in the kitchen, but that is what makes cooking over a fire pit so much fun! Do you know how many dishes other than s'mores you can makeover your fire pit?

We are talking dips, breakfasts, desserts, and everything in between. Cooking with a fire pit can be fun and has a super easy cleanup as well. This is also something that you can do with the whole family and get the kids involved.

A lot of the cooking for this will have some prep time, which you can do whenever. When it comes to making the dishes, you'll need some aluminum foil, and if your recipe calls for it, a Dutch oven or cast-iron skillet.

Most dishes are super easy to make and so delicious. Check out some of our earlier blogs for yummy dips and great fall dishes.

Perfect Ambiance

Are you looking to change the entire mood or look of your space? Is it entangled with hula hoops, a swing set, and a lawnmower you have sitting out? Our outdoor space can transform into a new and beautiful living space if we do it right. From outdoor decor to some landscaping, you can set up the perfect space to add a fire pit. A fire pit adds a new ambiance to the whole area. It allows you to have a focal point in your design, and then you can let your creative mind go with the exterior look.

Keep in mind, the fire pit can flow with any season. Some ideas to adjust the rest of the surroundings are:

- Different cushions for furniture

- New center Pieces for tables

- Plant flowers that are seasonal

- Throw pillows and blankets for each season

All these exterior details can work in tandem with the fire pit to create a chic and gorgeous outdoor look.

Increases Home Value

When you think of adding a fire pit to your backyard, the last thing you are probably thinking about is your home value. But did you know that adding a fire pit to your outdoor living space can increase your home's value?

If you choose to move in the future, home buyers will see the setup that you have created, and they are able to envision themselves using that space. If you create the patio, porch, or fire pit area, it sets up the next home buyer for a perfect gathering spot for them to make memories as well. Unlike a lot of homeowners who choose to put in a pool, shed, overhang, or permanent structure, a fire pit is more affordable and can go with you.

This is a great way to add some curb appeal to the home and show future home buyers what they could have if they choose to move forward.

We are in the middle of fall, and if you are loving being outside right now, then a fire pit would be a perfect addition to your home. Enjoy a delicious fall treat while you warm up next to your fire and embrace the season! You will be able to use this all year long, and the whole family will love it.
