There’s something serene and aesthetically-pleasing about having a fire pit adjacent to your swimming pool. Whether it’s there to add ambiance, style, warmth, a spot to entertain, or even a place to cook, a fire pit is a welcomed addition to any swimming pool and backyard.
But you can do a lot more with your fire pit than just plunk it down on your hardscaping. Instead, you may want to consider a sunken fire pit for an added more cozy feel.
Here are some benefits to having a sunken fire pit installed in your backyard.
Sunken fire pits may be a bit safer than above-ground fire pits simply because of the flames being emitted. The flames associated with sunken fire fits have fewer risks because fire flames are not as likely to spread. That said, it’s important to watch small children or pets, as they may be more vulnerable to falling into a sunken fire pit.
They Can Take Up Less Space
If you’re trying to make sure that you don’t take up too much space with your fire pit, then a sunken fire pit might be a great design to adopt for your backyard. These fire pits can get away with a smaller diameter compared to those that are above-ground. The fire itself may also be smaller, so there won’t be as many embers escaping.
In-ground fire pits are surprisingly simple in design and structure While there is certainly more work involved in installing a sunken fire pit due to the digging, it doesn’t take much to add a fire pit to your yard if space permits. Plus, there are fire-rated materials that can be used to construct your fire pit, as long as you enlist the help of experienced contractors to do the job for you.
