5 Reasons Why You Need to Install A Fire Pit for Your Home This Winter


The fall and wintertime are prime times of the year to spend outside in the comfort of your backyard; the changing colours and brisk winds make for an aesthetically pleasing & comforting atmosphere for homeowners all over Vancouver, BC and the surrounding area. The weather is beginning to get colder, but it doesn’t mean you have to stop enjoying the amenities of your backyard. Implementing a fire pit for your outdoor patio could bring new life & energy into your backyard at the end of the calendar year. Here are five reasons you need to install a fire pit for your home this winter.

The Party Doesn’t Stop in November or December!

Having guests over to enjoy the outdoor kitchen & patio that you worked so hard to perfect shouldn’t end when the warm weather dissipates; instead, it allows you to find new ways to host & entertain guests. Fire pits make for an excellent centrepiece where guests can set up around a controlled flame, warm their hands and feet, and relax with a couple of drinks and good food!

Choose Between Wood, Propane or a Natural Gas

Wood burning fire pits are the most commonly found variations at households across Canada; however, modern technology has made it possible to enjoy fire pits that are fueled by propane or natural gas. Since wood-burning fire pits create the most smoke, many homeowners are now turning to propane and natural gas-powered fire pits- both of which are much easier to light and keep lit as opposed to wood fire pits.

Keeps Your Backyard Lit

You put a lot of time & effort into crafting your backyard kitchen & patio; you shouldn’t have to stop using it as the nights get darker much sooner. Don’t rely on house lights & spotlights to illuminate your backyard; use your fire pit to light up your pristine backyard!

No Matter the Size of Your Yard, A Fire Pit Will Fit

Home appliances like a fire pit need to compliment the setup of your backyard and highlight the features of your outdoor patio & kitchen. Whether you have a very small and compact backyard or a large backyard with plenty of grass and rural area, you will be able to find a fire pit that fits your homeowner needs to accentuate your outdoor space.

Good for Use All Year

Finally, the best part about investing in a fire pit is that it can and should be used all year round. Of course, fire pits are extremely popular in the winter due to its ability to keep you warm. However, there is also something incredibly spectacular about sitting in front of a burning fire pit and being able to look up and gaze at stars during the summer. From late-night conversations that never end to roasting marshmallows, a fire pit never goes out of style.
