A fire feature for your patio is not limited to the small fire pits you can buy at your local home improvement store. There are a variety of fire features that will add warmth and beauty to your outdoor space. All you need to do is contact your creative landscaping company for advice and help.
Reasons to Invest in a Fire Feature
A fire feature is a perfect addition to your backyard as it provides both warmth and style. While sitting outside in the evening with family and friends is relaxing and fun, it can get a bit cool outside, especially in the Colorado autumn. A fire feature will keep your family and guests cozy and warm, and the glow of the flame sets the perfect mood.
Sitting around and chatting with friends around a fire isn’t just about staying warm; a fire feature offers health and emotional benefits as well. When the sun sets, you will feel relaxed and transfixed watching the flames dance around. In addition, sitting around a fire feature will leave you calmer, and it will even ease your blood pressure.

It might be dark outside, but that doesn’t mean the fun has to end because your fire feature lights up the night. And should you and your guests feel peckish, you can roast a few marshmallows over the flame and enjoy some tasty treats. Your fire pit is an addition to your home that you can use all year long.
Another great thing about fire features is that they are available at all price points. You don’t have to spend a whole lot of money on a fire feature if you choose. It’s quite easy to discover a fire feature that not only fits your budget but will look beautiful and add a touch of class to your outdoor space.
Just imagine the look on potential buyer’s faces when they tour your backyard and notice the fire feature. While a fire feature might not add much to the value of your home, it certainly adds plenty of curb appeal, and it will prompt interest. One look at your awesome fire feature, and you might have a buyer who can’t live without it.

Fire Feature Trends
Modern fire features are no longer limited to circle and square shapes; they now range from double-sided in-wall fireplaces to circular bowls. Some fire features will give your backyard that campground feel, while other designs will give your outdoor space a modern look. A circular bowl fire feature, for example, will allow guests to gather around the fire in a more traditional setting. At the same time, a double-sided fireplace will offer space to congregate on either side. You can even choose a design that will allow you to see the flames from both outside and inside of your home.
Deciding where to place your fire feature is not an easy decision. You can choose to install your fire feature on your patio, near your home, or it might make more sense to have it installed in the garden, farther away from your home. For example, if you have a hot tub, it makes sense to have the fire feature nearby to warm cold bodies as they exit the heated water.
When it comes to installing a fire feature, bigger is not necessarily better. Choosing the size of your fire feature is also a decision that needs to be studied and thought out. A smaller fire feature is ideal for the family or couple who enjoys the warmth and glow of a fire but rarely, if ever, have people over for parties or other types of get-togethers. For those who love to entertain friends and family, a more extensive fire feature will allow enjoyment for more people.
If you are the type of person who enjoys sipping your morning coffee in your backyard, eating a tasty dinner out on your patio, or love roasting marshmallows over an open flame for classic s’mores, why not have a fire pit built in a dining table? A table with a central fire feature is ideal for people who want to take full advantage of their outdoor space. Table-style fire features offer an excellent way to entertain guests.
