In the summer, a backyard becomes the heart of the house.

We only get so many warm months in the year, so it’s important to spend as much time outside as we can, whether that means grilling with friends or just tanning on the deck.

With so much time being spent outside, we need to make our outdoor space as welcoming and fun as possible. And what brings an outdoor space together better than a fire pit?

Personally, nothing relaxes me more than curling up with a good book by the fire pit and losing track of time under the stars. When I have friends over, my fire pit is great for making s’mores or even staying warm on chillier nights.

A fire pit is a great backyard investment that can be used well beyond the summer months.

Check out our guide below on the different types of fire pits, and make sure you buy yours soon so you can enjoy it ASAP!

1. Propane Fire Pit

With a propane fire pit, you don’t get the smoke and crackle of a wood-burning fire, but it will heat up at the turn of a switch and doesn’t require any cleanup. A propane pit is best for those looking to use their fire for warmth and decoration, as propane fires aren’t recommended for roasting s’mores or other foods.

2. Wood-Burning Fire Pit

When you think of a classic fire pit, you probably think of a wood fire pit with a pile of logs and bright, fragrant flames. These are the most classic fire pits out there, and they’re great for everything from roasting s’mores to telling ghost stories at night.

These natural pits do require some patience, though, because you’ll have to start the fire yourself.

3. Natural Gas Fire Pit

Though a natural gas fire pit doesn’t burn as colorfully as propane, this type of fire pit burns cleanly into the air and thus is great for the environmentally conscious. Plus, unlike a propane pit that has to be hooked up to a tank, a natural gas fire pit gets its fuel from a gas line attached to your house, so you’ll never run out.

4. Chiminea

With a round body and thin smoke vent — like a fireplace — a chiminea is a unique fire pit that will add character to any backyard. Traditionally used indoors in Spain and Mexico for heat and cooking, today chimineas are widely used as outdoor fire pits. Their long vents serve to relocate smoke.

5. Fire Pit Table

If you plan on using your fire pit for hosting dinners with friends, a fire pit table makes it easy for guests to set their food and drinks down while enjoying the warmth of the fire.
