Fire Pit Design

Fire pit designs and shapes include the typical round shape but can be square, rectangular, or even built with a "walled side" for a special effect. The shape and style of your firepit can be most anything you want it to be.

Metal fire pits are relatively inexpensive and a homeowner can buy these at a local home improvement store or online. Almost every metal fire pit product is made from cheap metal, which is poorly finished, and will rust-out in 1-2 years. We've worked with many customers who effectively wasted money buying metal fire pits every few years instead of investing in a quality fire pit.

The size of your fire pit is entirely up to you. A typical fire pit height is 18"-24" above ground level. The width, or diameter, of a fire pit is often 48"-72". It's worth considering that the amount of flame it takes for a full effect translates into how much fuel you consume. While a large fire pit may be more impressive or dramatic, the operating costs will be much higher than a smaller version.

Fire Pit Construction

Fire pit designs all begin by creating a relatively shallow pit, and then building it upward with firebricks with a fire-proof grout. The exterior face of the fire pit walls can be covered with decorative stone, rock or brick. The best fire pit construction uses products specially designed for high-heat construction. Although not mandatory, high-heat products provide greater safety and longevity for your firepit. If you're curious, take a few minutes to learn the difference between fire brick and regular brick.
