The Great Debate: Wood-Burning vs. Gas Fire Pits

While wood-burning fire pits usually come with a lower price tag than gas fire pits, they both have their pros and cons that you should consider before making your decision.

Wood-Burning

Wood-burning fire pits give a more rustic look to your outdoor space, are generally faster to install, and give off that natural crackling sound associated with fire that creates an authentic ambiance. Wood-burning fire pits, however, do come with fire hazard concerns, the necessity to have space to store the wood, the need for regular maintenance, and lighting and cleaning challenges. You should also note that you will have to check your local city and country guidelines to install a wood-burning fire pit. 

Natural Gas or Propane

Gas or propane fire pits are more environmentally friendly, easier to light and maintain, can run continuously, and poses fewer fire hazards in comparison to wood-burning. The disadvantage of outdoor gas fire pits is that you will need a gas line installed by a plumber.

Do you want permanent seating around your fire pit?

If you want your fire pit to be the focal point of your backyard and the perfect place for entertaining, you may want to incorporate a seat wall or other permanent seating around your fire pit. This can be done using paver blocks, concrete, or rocks and keeps you from having to drag heavy outdoor furniture to and from your fire pit. Batchelder & Collins is your one stop shop for all your needs. Not only do we have a variety of fire pits to fit your overall design style, but we also carry the supplies to create the seating surrounding it and make the entire area warm and inviting for friends and family.

Modern

Modern fire pits feature characteristics like straight, clean lines and are generally made of metal, wood, or concrete. They fit perfectly with a modern home but they also provide the perfect juxtaposition when paired with older home styles. 

Rustic

Rustic fire pits usually have characteristics like round forms, layers, and jagged imperfect shapes and are made of pavers, rock, stone, or rustic metals. They give an outdoorsy feel to your backyard and pair perfectly with industrial or farmhouse style homes.
