Thoughts While Installing a Fire Feature

With this cold weather, it’s nice to have a warm and inviting area to get comfy. Many people choose to huddle up inside to seek warmth. However, there are many fire features available that can encourage you to enjoy the outdoors, even on the coldest nights. But before you make the investment, you should think about the following when picking out your fire feature.


Things to Consider When Installing Fire Features

Before you make the investment, you should think about the following when picking out your fire feature.

There are so many fire features from which to choose. It’s hard to decide which one is best for you. There are fire pits, fireplaces, and fire bars, among other features. To decide which feature to choose, think about how you will use it. Each fire feature can be used for different functions, so knowing what purpose it will serve goes a long way with deciding which one to pick. You should also consider how many people will be using it. Some fire features are better for small groups of people, while others are better suited for larger gatherings.


You’ll need to pick a spot to place whatever fire feature you install. Think about where you will get the most use from it. Do you want a fire feature that’s near the house or somewhere farther away? Will this feature become a focal point of your yard? If so, how can you arrange your yard so that your new fire feature draws in attention?


Fire features are made from a variety of materials. What materials do you want to use for the installation? What style would you like your fire feature to have? What complements the existing features of your home? You’ll want your fire feature to go well with the other pieces of your home and garden.

Picking the right material can be tricky so you may want to consult with a professional.  You should also consider if you want the feature to be movable or stationary. Movable fire features provide flexibility by letting you set it up wherever you want. Stationary fire features are often installed once and never moved or adjusted. This can limit the space of your yard if you are working with limited space.


Your fire feature will need to use some sort of fuel. Do you want to make the fire yourself, or do you want the fire to start by using a switch or turning a key? If you have natural gas or propane already in your home, you might want to consider using that for your fire feature as well.  If you are in a wooded area, you might want to consider using the fallen branches as fuel. Some people love the idea of building a fire, while others simply want to sit down, turn a key and enjoy.

Ideas for Use

Fire features can serve different purposes and come with different accessories. Some fire features have grill tops for cooking, while others house Fire Glass for effect. There are some fire features that serve as great gathering areas for guests and some that are small and intimate. Whatever function you want your fire feature to serve, you should know all of the possibilities out there before you make a decision.
