Outdoor living isn't just about a grill and a table and chairs anymore. Outdoor fire pits are gaining popularity and enhance your outdoor living experience. These days people have full-on outdoor kitchens and fully appointed outdoor living rooms and many outdoor spaces now include fire pits. A fire pit can easily become the go-to spot for family and friends and are perfect for a lively fireside chat or a place to stay warm on chilly summer nights. This urban garden's seating area is the perfect place to kick back and catch up, and the fire pit is the right height to be used as a table when not lit. Some homes even have separate seating areas for fire pits and include built-in benches/banquettes (a perfect opportunity to accessorize with decorative outdoor pillows .) Adding an outdoor fire pit can extend your outdoor living season, starting in the spring and go until fall (or later, depending on your climate.)   Adding outdoor fountains  will provide the peaceful sound of trickling water while you watch the flames licking up from your fire pit. I love the festive touch of paper lanterns in the trees above the seating area. String lights are a great addition to this outdoor seating area with a wood-burning fire pit.  The addition of decorative lanterns adds to the cozy ambiance. Some outdoor fire pits are great for toasting marshmallows, others are just pretty to look at, but all will help keep you toasty on cool spring/summer nights. Here are some great outdoor fire pits to consider when you're ready to add one to the mix: 1. Round Crystal Outdoor Fire Pit  2. Drop-In Tile Outdoor Fire Pit Table  3. Tereno Stucco Outdoor Fire Pit  4. Round Chat Fire Pit Table with Granite Top  5. Real Flame Gray Burning Fire Pit  6.
