7 Reasons Why You Need An Outdoor Fire Pit

Sitting around a fire in general, whether that's indoors or outdoors, isn't just about keeping warm. Fire has many practical, emotional and health benefits too. Here are seven reasons why we believe having an outdoor fire pit this spring and summer is a great idea:

Cooking On Fire | Wood-Fired | Kadai Fire Bowl | Kindwood | Kiln Dried Logs | Kind Comfort

1) Useable all year round

It's not just the summer season when you can enjoy sitting around a fire pit, with a Kadai Fire Bowl, you can enjoy outside living all year round. Spring, autumn and wintertime are also perfect for some outdoor living.

2) You can cook on it! 

When all that relaxing in the warmth makes you wonder what's for dinner, just pop the grill plate over the top and you can cook anything you'd usually cook on a BBQ. Get those smoky aromas from the wood. 

3) Helps relax and unwind

When the sun goes down, there's nothing better than to relax and unwind watching the flames dancing. In fact, a study by ___ claims that the effect of fire helps us become calmer and more sociable and even causes our blood pressure to drop. 

4) They can extend your home

Fire pits are ideal for creating an alfresco lounge space — an extension of your home where you can relax and socialise. Much like indoor fireplaces, fire pits provide the perfect focal point for an outdoor sitting area, and they look fantastic surrounded by outdoors sofas or built-in bench seating topped with cushions.

5) Creates a cosy atmosphere outdoors

Where you're hosting an outdoor party after the summer sun has gone down, or you want to snuggle up with your family and chat into the early hours, a fire put is the ultimate social point and creates an irresistibly ambient glow for a cosy evening outdoors.

6) Fire pits light up the night

Not only does a fire pit provide warmth once the day's sun has gone down, but it can also change the aesthetics of your home and give your garden a wonderful warm glow. The most underused room in the house is often the garden, honestly, it is. But when you have a fire put, there's no excuse that it's too cold when you can next to those flames in the still of the night. 

7) S'mores

It doesn't matter what time of year it is, it is always S'mores time. You can cook them right in your garden over an open flame.

  • Well, as you might expect, we couldn’t agree more here at www.GBOutdoorFires.co.uk Nice article! We started out 4 years ago with just open fire pits, but are now starting to introduce a number of retrofittable accessories to extend the experience to a variety of outdoor cooking ideas. Stay safe. Stay outdoors.
