When you think of fire pits, you probably think of smoke. Fire and smoke usually go hand in hand, especially when you are burning wood. Smoke can get in the way of a social gathering, engulfing your party in a cloud. Luckily, there are better options available on the market today that can help you out.
Gas Burning Pit
One option available is a gas burning fire pit. These pits do not burn wood, but rather fuel. This means that there is no annoying smoke to get in the way of your gathering. The fire is lit from a controlled area of the pit, keeping it under control and looking great. No smoke also means that you won’t have to worry about dangerous pollution going up into the air.
A Wide Rim
Add a wide rim or edge around the outside of your fire pit to give your guests a place to put drinks and plates. Because the gas fireplace keeps the fire under control, you can be sure that the fire won’t be jumping around. Having a place for guests to put down their food and drinks will allow everyone more space to relax and kick back.
Beauty In Design
Wood-burning pits need to be more functional than aesthetically pleasing. You can’t really add decorative stones to the bottom of a wood-burning fireplace because of all the ash and soot that comes from that type of fire. A gas burning fireplace, however, is much less messy and leaves room for more choices. You can add decorative stones, reflective materials, fake wood, or pretty much anything you want. The possibilities are endless.
