How to Design the Perfect Fire Feature
By installing a fire feature, you can create a warm and inviting atmosphere in your space that will be the perfect conversation starter.

Fire Pit or Fireplace

The first design choice that you’ll have to make is whether you’d like to install a fire pit or fireplace. Fire pits are accessible from all sides while fireplaces are just accessible from the front. Take note of your space and how you want your family and guests to interact with the fire feature. With a pit you can create an experience reminiscent of a campfire, and you may even be able to do some cooking and grilling. Fireplaces work better in smaller settings and if you want to create a focal point in your space.  

Modular or Mortared Design

Modular designs come in square, rectangular, or even hexagonal shapes. They are cost-effective and relatively simple to install. Mortared designs typically use natural stone and create a more elegant and sophisticated appearance. With both you can create a completely customizable look, so use your budget and personal style as a way to help make the choice between the two.   

Gas Burning or Wood Burning

If you want your design to veer more toward a traditional atmosphere, then wood burning will likely be the choice for you. The crackling, smoky smell and rustic environment will all add to your experience. On the other hand, gas burning fire features are tidy, more convenient, and lower maintenance. They obviously don’t require any wood and won’t produce any ash, smoke, or soot.
