Thinking about purchasing a fire pit? The designs are endless and so are the prices depending on what you are looking for.
Custom made fire pits designed to your specifications, usually cost a pretty penny, but the end results will be well worth what you spend. You will have a well-made piece of art that will enhance your outdoor space for many years.
If you choose a propane (LPG) or natural gas fueled fire pit, the styles are many and the prices will vary. They can be a little more expensive than the wood burning units, but not always. It depends on the make and model that suits your needs and taste. Some of the LPG fire pits are available with spaces to put your propane tank in to keep it out of sight.
The wood burning fire pits are usually the most affordable, depending on the style you choose and how long you want it to last. Their prices can range from under $100 to over $1,000.
My preference is the one-piece maintenance free steel designed fire pits (wood burning, gas or propane). They last longer and usually can be left outdoors in any weather without damage to the unit.
So, think about the benefits you want out of your fire pit as well as how long you would like it to last. The bottom line is whichever fire pit you choose … just like anything else, you’re pretty much going to get what you pay for.
