Sitting round an outside fire isn’t just about keeping warm. An outdoor fire pit has many practical, emotional and health benefits too. We’ve found seven reasons why we believe having an outdoor fire pit is a great idea:
1. Creates a cosy atmosphere outdoors
Whether you’re hosting an outdoor party after the summer sun has gone down, or you want to snuggle up with your family and chat into the early hours, a fire pit is the ultimate focal point and creates an irresistibly ambient glow for a cosy evening outdoors.
2. Fire pits light up the night
Not only does a fire pit provide warmth once the day’s sun has gone down, it can change the aesthetics of your home and give your garden a wonderful warm glow. The most underused room in the house is often the garden, but when you have a fire pit, there’s no excuse that it’s too cold when you can sit next to those flames in the still of the night.
3. They can extend your home
Fire pits are ideal for creating an al fresco lounge space– an extension of your home where you can relax and socialise. Much like indoor fireplaces, fire pits provide the perfect focal point for an outdoor sitting area, and they look fantastic surrounded by outdoor sofas or built-in bench seating topped with cushions.
4. Useable all year round
It’s not just the summer season when you can enjoy sitting round a fire pit, with an Earthfire Ceramic Firepit, you can enjoy outside living all year round. Transform your Halloween, bonfire nights and even Christmas Eve with the warmth and comfort of an outside fire.
5. You can even cook on it
When all that relaxing in the warmth makes you wonder what’s for dinner, just pop the grill plate over the top and you can cook anything you'd usually cook on a grill on a barbecue fire pit and more!
6. Helps relax and unwind
When the sun goes down, there’s nothing better than to relax and unwind watching the flames dancing. In fact, a study by Christopher Lynn, Anthropologist at University of Alabama claims that the effect of fire helps us become calmer and more sociable and even causes our blood pressure to drop!
7. Make the days last longer
The longest day may well be behind us, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy these lighter nights whilst they last; sat in the warmth and comfort of an open outside fire gazing at the stars.
