Baby It’s Cold Outside (But Cozy With a Gas Fire Pit)

Casual Fireside by OW Lee

Winter has arrived in Southern California. Even though our temps never get as low as neighboring areas, it still gets quite chilly when the sun goes down. In order to continue enjoying your luxury outdoor living space, a gas fire pit is a must. Here’s what you need to know about your options.

Size Matters

No matter how much or how little space you have in your backyard, there is an outdoor fire pit that is sure to fit the space perfectly. You can opt for something grand, such as a large, built-in fire pit with elaborate stone surround or you can go the opposite way, with a small, mobile gas fire pit that tucks neatly away when not in use.

Some factors to consider when deciding on the size are how much outdoor space you wish to heat, how many people will be gathered around the fire pit and whether your location is protected or out in the open. When it comes to finding the right size to fit your needs, you are sure to find it at Hauser’s Patio – and we’re here to help guide you.

Style It Up

Here’s another thing about a cozy gas fire pit – it is sure to fit your style. At Hauser’s Patio, we offer hundreds of styles and shapes. We have everything from unique, contemporary shapes (obelisks, urns and more with or without a pedestal) to classic styles such as coffee tables and occasional-height round shapes. Shapes of rectangle, round amd square in high and low configurations abound. There are plenty of choices when it comes to the material of the base and top and even some color variations.

Another choice you have when selecting the perfect fire pit is the type of media for the gas flames. Ceramic charcoal briquettes are a perennial favorite, but you might fall in love with contemporary media such as bits of glass or river rock. Then again, realistic logs crafted from ceramic, such as you might expect to see in an indoor gas fireplace, are another popular choice. No matter which you select, your gas fire pit will be providing outdoor warmth in high style.

Other Gas Fire Pit Options

In addition to size and style, there are several other considerations for your gas fire pit. For instance, your fire pit can run on liquid propane or natural gas. Do you wish to use it for cooking? That’s an option. You can select its height by adding a riser or putting the fire pit vessel atop a pedestal. Another choice is to add a glass or decorate metalwork surround. Accessorize your gas fire pit with a cover, lazy Susan or even a coffee table extension. The possibilities for customization are nearly endless.

Enjoy the Great Outdoors

Just because it’s cold outside – at least relatively so! – does not mean you can’t get out and enjoy your luxury outdoor living space. Adding a gas fire pit – or two or three or more – is the perfect way to stay warm and cozy all winter long.
