Pandemics, Protests, Politics, Panic! Yikes! What we all need now is some Peace! As cold weather approaches and we close up our doors and windows against the chill, many of us are feeling anxiety about the continued need for social distancing and staying close to home. But it doesn’t have to be as bad as that sounds. As stir-craziness sets in, your backyard could become an oasis for you and your family.
As summer ends with so many plans cancelled, an outdoor space feels like the closest thing you’ll get to a destination. Making your backyard feel special with a safe, comforting propane or wood-burning fire pit helps break the ordinary routine, as you still stay safely at home. The sight of dancing flames, the calming effect of simply watching the fire, and the warmth as the leaves fall, makes home feel like the right place to be.
Creating a Backyard Oasis
Design concepts are not just to decorate inside your home! Bringing similar design elements into outdoor spaces can glam up every corner of your yard, extending your living space while exuding a feeling of luxury, calm and serenity.
Really, outdoor spaces open up more possibilities than indoors, especially in the backyard. Gorgeous outdoor spaces increase the value of your home, are more inviting for guests and make for more usable square footage for every day.
A comfy, luxe option is a fire pit as the centerpiece of an outdoor living room. In this setup, you have several options for the fire pit. You can combine the fire pit with an outdoor coffee table surrounded by large comfy couches and chairs. Or you can take a more contemporary approach with a larger, single-use fire pit. If you’re more of the camping type, an open wood burning fire pit set out in the yard, or on a rustic stone patio, surrounded by Adirondack chairs and folding camp chairs is another fantastic options for outdoor spaces. Any of these options build a special place where the whole family can enjoy time together.
With a propane gas fire pit, you don’t have to worry about the cushions on your good patio furniture. Wood fires emit hot embers that singe holes from stray sparks, but gas fires don’t! But if you really want to feel like you’re camping, spread out some old blankets on the ground.
Safe for Wood Decks and Patios
Since a propane fire pit is safe to use on your wood deck or patio, there’s no special preparation. They set up as easily as a new BBQ grill (and easier than some!). Just assemble and attach the propane line from your propane canister directly to the fire pit, and you’ll be ready for a cozy evening the same day your delivery arrives. No special tools and no special skills required.
People now spend more time at home. A favorite evening or weekend pastime gathers everyone around the backyard fire pit, and with the right set up, you can be roasting marshmallows, sip wine or a mug of hot cocoa with your loved ones, around the fire on autumn evenings. You will be creating wonderful memories of special time spent together.
