If you've decided that you want to add a fire pit to your property in New Jersey or Pennsylvania and have scheduled a consultation with a professional company, there are some things you'll want to consider so you're not caught off guard during the consultation. First, you'll want to decide if you want a custom fire pit or would rather choose from a pre-designed kit. If you want a custom fire pit, then you can design whatever type of fire pit you want. However, if you want to go with a pre-designed kit, there will be several options to choose from that will meet your aesthetic and functional needs. You'll also want to decide what materials you want your fire pit constructed out of. Lastly, you'll want to decide what fuel you want your fire pit to burn. Wood, propane, and gas are all great options and each has its own unique benefits.

Will you have a custom fire pit built or do you want to pick from a pre-designed kit?

One of the first decisions you'll need to make when designing a fire pit is whether you want to have a custom one built or if you want rather pick from one of the available pre-designed kits. When it comes to choosing between a custom fire pit and a kit, a custom fire pit gives you complete freedom over how it looks. That means you get to design it however you want and it will be completely unique! On the other hand, a kit offers several different styles to choose from so you don't have to worry about starting from scratch. While you may prefer one over the other, both types of fire pits have their advantages, so you should use whichever option fits your needs better.

You'll want to decide what material you want your fire pit to be made out of.

The next thing you'll need to consider before your fire pit design consultation is the material you want your new fire pit to be made out of. While there are many options available, you'll want to choose the one that will meet your specific needs and preferences. For example, you'll want to choose a material that is aesthetically pleasing, but will also be strong enough to withstand the heat and elements it will be exposed to throughout its lifespan. Also, you'll want to choose a material that will meet the level of maintenance that you're willing to do. If you don't want to do much work to keep your fire pit in pristine condition, go with a low-maintenance material that does not need to be cleaned often.

Some popular materials used to construct fire pits include wall block, natural stone, bluestone, and brownstone!

What kind of fuel do you want your fire pit to burn?

The last major consideration you'll have to make during your design consultation is what type of fuel you want your fire pit to burn. There are three main options - wood, propane, and gas. Wood is a classic choice that offers a classic, campfire feel along with the smell of natural smoke. Propane burns cleaner than other fuels but you do need to replace the tank when it runs out. Gas is another clean-burning option that allows you to start fires quickly just by pushing a button. None of these options are better than the other, it all comes down to personal preference.
