Five Reasons to Install a Paver Fire Pit
Outdoor living spaces are becoming increasingly popular with our Macomb County clients. The desire to spend more time enjoying the amazing Michigan summers inspires people to create outdoor spaces that bring the comforts of the indoors, to their backyards. One of the most popular features of these outdoor living spaces is the fire pit. This great feature makes your outdoor space useable for more of the year, and is great for increasing the look and value of your home. Here are five reasons to install a paver fire pit in your home’s outdoor living space.
A Great Gathering Place
When you entertain indoors, everyone seems to gravitate toward the kitchen. When you entertain outdoors, you should have an amazing place for your guests to hang out. A beautiful paver or stone fire pit is the perfect answer for creating a great outdoor gathering space for your guests. Surround your brick or stone fire pit with comfy chairs or matching benches and you have a cozy and inviting space to entertain your guests.
It’s a Useful Feature
Besides keeping you warm, your new brick or stone paver fire pit can also be a fun and useful outdoor feature. Fire pits often make people feel like they are enjoying a great camp fire, without ever leaving their yard. Use your new paver fire pit to roast marshmallows or hot dogs. And, if you can have a wood burning fire pit, this is a great place to get rid of tree trimmings, just like when you are camping.
Extend the Outdoor Season
When you add a brick or stone paver fire pit to your home’s outdoor living space, you extend the outdoor entertaining season. Fire pits bring additional light as days get shorter, and with a warm place to gather, your outdoor entertaining days don’t have to end in September. Extend your outdoor entertaining to October and beyond.
Many of our Macomb County clients like to use natural stone pavers for their fire pits. This material is strong and durable and stands up well to the heat of your new fire pit. The other great thing about natural stone pavers is that they bring a natural and organic look and feel to your home’s outdoor living space. Many clients think that brick pavers are too perfect. Enjoy a bit of nature with a fire pit built using natural stone pavers, instead of brick.
Increase Your Home’s Value
While you may not be thinking about selling your home now, or anytime soon, there may come a day when you will want to think about selling. Fire pits are a highly desirable feature for outdoor spaces, so when you add a brick or stone fire pit to your home’s outdoor spaces, you add value to your home. For now, it’s entertainment for you and your family, but when you sell your home, it’s more money in your pocket.
Creating a great outdoor living space requires many different features. One that you shouldn’t overlook is a beautiful brick or stone paver fire pit. You’ll receive hours of enjoyment, spending time with your friends and family around a cozy fire.
