Four Outdoor Firepit Ideas to Complement Your Outdoor Landscape

Here at Nite-Lite Landscape Lighting, our primary objective is to help you enjoy your entire home at any time of the day. A lot of us start work before it gets light and finish when it’s dark, so with some clever landscape lighting design, we can help you enjoy your home – including your outdoor space – at any time of day.

But what about those days when there is a chill in the air? A firepit is a perfect place to sit next to and get cozy, maybe with a drink and a blanket for good measure – and not only will it keep you warm, but it will also complete the look of your landscaped yard. Here are four ways to add some warmth to your outdoor space.

Campfire-style Bowl

If you are looking for some rustic firepit ideas, one of the most simple and effective ways to add some sparkle to your yard is a traditional, cast iron firepit. Apart from looking gorgeous next to landscape tree lighting, for example, you can easily move it to any spot you like, and if you invest in a deeper bowl, you can add a grill shelf to it for some marshmallow toasting or even a little barbecuing!

Firepit / Table Combo

A thoroughly wonderful way to enjoy some heat is to have it right in the center of your outdoor dining table. We all know how much a fire captivates people and with a firepit / table combo, you and your fellow diners can watch the flames dance while continuing to eat, chat, and laugh together.

Bespoke & Upscale

For a higher-end finish, it’s time to go built-in. There are a number of options for built-in firepits, but they all require some custom stonework. These firepits blend seamlessly into your hardscape and are an excellent addition to any backyard or patio.

For an ultra-polished look, you could skip the “pit” altogether and go with a built-in outdoor fireplace. A fireplace built into a beautiful stone surround looks fabulous next to up-lighting, giving a regal and stately effect to your yard.

Custom options for outdoor fireplaces include the addition of a cooking element like a wood-fired pizza oven to take your outdoor kitchen to a whole new level!

Go Smokeless!

Love sitting by the fire but hate the way your hair and clothes smell afterward? Upgrade your outdoor firepit with a smokeless model like the ones available from Breeo (which are manufactured in the USA) or Solo Stove.

Once they’ve heated up, these models are extremely effective at creating a secondary burn that burns off nearly all of the smoke that you otherwise end up trying to dance around whenever the wind blows a little.

They also offer options to add grill accessories to turn your outdoor firepit into a wood fired barbecue grill!

Match your theme or color scheme

One of the most vital things to remember when you are looking for a firepit is that it should blend in with the rest of your landscaping. If you have a color scheme in your outdoor lighting, find a firepit that complements it – did you know you can even change the color of your flames, too?! Or if your outdoor space has a theme such as chrome or rustic, pick a firepit that you know will look great with your other outdoor décor!

In the end, your outdoor space is just as important as indoors – treat yourself to a cozy space that you, your family, and your friends will be excited to spend time in and you won’t regret it!
