If you’ve got an avid DIYer or home improvement lover in your home, head over to a paver supply company to get the building blocks for an exciting fire pit design that you can create together. Previously Cutting Edge has written about the top four uses for pavers: patios, driveways, walkways, and backyard spaces. Let’s take a deeper dive into those backyard spaces.
When creating an outdoor fire pit, you might not consider adding permanent seating into your design plan, but why not? Building a fixed bench out of pavers that you can decorate with outdoor cushions and camping blankets can create a cozy and inviting space. The more inviting your yard feels, the more you will want to utilize it and invite your friends and family over for entertaining.
Enclose the Area
Built-in seating creates a designated area, but what if you want to use more rustic seating like camping chairs or unique wooden seats? Make your fire pit feel like a special area by creating a border around it with decorative stones or concrete pavers. Another popular option to consider is concrete curbing. A border will set it apart from the rest of your yard and can create a rustic focal point.
Make it a Multi-Functional Space
If you’re working with a large lawn, build your fire pit in the middle of your yard based on the idea that it will be your most used hangout spot. Make it complete with tables made from pavers to hold drinks or portable speakers. If you have a smaller yard, build your fire pit in a circle formation with a flat surface to rest your drinks.
Build a Pathway
If you have a pre-existing fire pit, but you don’t feel like it gets enough use because it’s not noticed, use your pavers or landscaping sand or rocks to create a path to it from your home. Tracks will naturally draw the eye to it and make the area more inviting. This would also be a time to create built-in seating or a stone enclosure to make the space more of a focal point.
There are so many DIY ideas out there for fire pits created out of pavers or stones. Take a trip down to your local paver supply store and see what products stand out to you. Finding the right medium can inspire a design idea that you will adore.
