Upgrading your patio: why you need a fire pit

in Outdoor Living

When planning an upgrade to a patio, many people focus solely on stones and chairs without really considering all the possible ways they can turn the back of their home into another living space. Installing a fire pit is a simple way to put some flair into your back yard and make it a place you’ll spend more and more time in.

Fire pits come in all shapes, styles, sizes, and fuel types. There is literally something for everyone and can fit a big or small patio space. But if you’re not sure if a fire pit is right for you, here are a few reasons why you need a fire pit.

Perfect for groups big or small
There’s something primal about sitting around an open fire and talking with friends and family. It’s a great way to stir up some conversation and relax at the same time. Big parties can get out the marshmallows and roast. For smaller, romantic moments, having a nice glass of wine with that special someone while sitting in front of a roaring fire just makes it better.

A Nice Firepit

Year-round usage
Fire pits are great in the summer time, relaxing on the patio and enjoying the balmy nights. They’re also amazing in the winter, adding a little warmth and comfort to a cooler evening. Just imagine how those flames will look on a dark Vancouver night during the winter.

Adds resale value
Everything you do to improve your patio, from better patio furnishings to a roaring fire pit, will help improve the resale value of your home. It’s such a popular backyard renovation that a fire pit is something that new home buyers are looking for all the time.

Big or small, propane, gas, or wood, there is a fire pit for you. Come and see the friendly staff at Art Knapp and find out how we can upgrade your patio with an amazing new fire pit.
