Autumn is on the horizon, and you know what that means. It’s time to set up a fire pit outside so you can keep the outdoor fun going even when there’s a crisp chill in the air. You can still stay cozy and enjoy your outdoor space!

Imagine gathering together with your friends and family, telling stories, and having drinks around the warmth and glow of a fire pit. Can you picture it?

We’re here to help you bring that vision to life. Read on to learn how to make a great fire pit setup.


Pick the Right Fire Pit Style

First and foremost, you’re going to need a fire pit. What style suits you best?

If you’re a DIY master, you could make your own with bricks, but this can be time-consuming. Most people choose to buy their fire pits. We recommend choosing one that’s easy to move so you can choose the perfect location for your fire depending on the day.

You could get a stylish fire table, a classic concrete basin, or a sleek and versatile metal fire pit. Which one is right for you?


Surround It With Comfy Chairs

What’s a fire pit without perfect places to sit around it? Choosing the right outdoor Adirondack chair can totally upgrade your outdoor living space. Here are a few factors to consider when you’re choosing chairs.


Choose the Right Materials

When you choose outdoor Adirondack chairs, make sure you’re choosing materials that are durable and easy to clean. After all, these chairs will be spending their time outdoors, exposed to the elements. Eco-friendly poly lumber is an excellent choice if you want durability with the aesthetic of real wood.


Suit Your Outdoor Aesthetic

Next, pick a color and design. Are you into bright and bold colors, or do you prefer a more subdued neutral look? This is where you can get creative with your outdoor space! Choose colors that speak to you.



Prioritize Comfort

You want to choose a chair that feels comfortable to sit in. Avoid chairs with sharp edges and consider buying an Adirondack chair ottoman to add extra comfort. You could even choose a folding and reclining chair if you really want to get as cozy as possible!



Utilize Small Tables and Bar Carts

Don’t underestimate the importance of tables and other surfaces when you’re setting up your outdoor living space. When you’re enjoying your fire pit, you don’t want to keep getting up to grab snacks or drinks. Small side tables and a handy bar cart can help.

A bar cart with wheels is easy to move outside and perfect for storing drinks and glassware. Use tables for holding beverages, snacks, and anything else you want to bring outside with you so it doesn’t have to go on the ground.




Get Cozy With Your Fire Pit This Season

So what will your fire pit setup look like this fall? These tips will help you turn your outdoor living space into a cozy gathering place for relaxing, having fun with friends, and enjoying the outdoors. Are you ready to get cozy?
