Freestanding

This modern-looking option is one of the more cost-effective types of fire pit. Even though it is probably the least customizable option, this type of fire pit is likely the most versatile. They do have the option to utilize propane tanks or natural gas. A freestanding fire pit is probably the most basic option and doesn’t have a more “finished” look, but does offer the ability to be moved.

Kit

fire pit kit is a more customizable option than the freestanding units, but is still conveniently packaged as a complete unit. You can select from a range of colors, coping options, and the size can be adjusted to fit your outdoor space. These tend to have a more finished, built-in look and feel as well. These kits are reasonably priced, and are an option for a more permanent fire pit in your outdoor living space.

Custom

You can also choose a customized fire pit. You would have the final say when it comes to size, shape, finish, and color. This is the most expensive option, but worthwhile if you have a more specific idea of what you want in your outdoor living space. Custom fire pits usually use natural gas and have a more finished look, often featuring a natural stone facade and coping.  Making decisions can be difficult, but we want to make it easy!
