It’s a peaceful, gorgeous summer evening in NJ. You and your loved ones have been spending time outdoors, barbecuing, swimming and enjoying one another’s company.
It’s been a perfect day, but now the sun is setting, and the temperature is starting to cool off. Who says that you have to go inside, though?
A growing number of NJ homeowners are discovering how valuable and versatile a Techo-Bloc fire pit can be! Read on to learn more about why you should be interested in a fire pit, and for some great ideas for introducing one to your property.
The Beauty of a Techo-Bloc Fire Pit
By providing light and warmth to your outdoor living space, a Techo-Bloc fire pit allows you to keep making memories with your family and friends well into the night. The effect of crackling firelight under the dark, starry sky creates a warm and inviting atmosphere for trading stories, singing songs, playing games, roasting hot dogs and making S’mores.
Once you’re ready to start building a fire pit, Techo-Bloc will have you covered. Techo-Bloc makes some of the best fire pit kits on the market, providing homeowners with a wide range of options in terms of size, shape, texture, color and style.
Whether you prefer something sleek, modern and with sharp edges, or something rustic and round, you’ll find the perfect fire pit to enjoy in the many years to come. The kits are easy to install and maintain, and they are designed to ensure that you and your loved ones are cozy and comfortable at all times.
The concrete materials used to build the fire pit are non-combustible and don’t retain heat. In addition to being exceptionally safe, practical and functional, the fire pits are also stunningly beautiful, emulating the look of natural stone. There’s really nothing not to love about Techo-Bloc fire pits.
4 Super Cozy Ideas for Your Techo-Bloc Fire Pit
Because you want your fire pit to create a cozy and charming environment, it’s wise to take a little bit of time to think about what your needs and personal tastes are. Ask yourself some important questions in order to get a better sense for what style you should be shooting for.
How many people will be gathering around the fire pit at one time? How frequently will you make use of the fire pit? Do you plan on cooking over the flames?
What type of seating appeals to you? Where will the fire pit be located in respect to other landscaping features?
From here, you’ll be able to lock down what’s really important and settle on a comfy, cozy design for your home. Here are a few of our favorite ideas to help provide you with some inspiration:
1. Sunken Fire Pits
We are absolutely crazy about the idea of sunken or recessed fire pits. These fire pits can be built off on their own, or can be adjacent to the rest of your outdoor living space.
You might have steps leading down to the seating area which surrounds your fire pit, or you might have your steps double as seating in the space.
Tikki torches, plants and plush cushions can help to create a truly relaxing, casual and cozy space where you and your friends and family will love to unwind and spend time together.
2. Poolside Fire Pits
After a long, fun day of splashing in the pool, your body can come to quite the shock when the sun goes down and it starts to get a little bit chilly. Many NJ homeowners choose to remedy this effect by placing beautiful fire pits beside their swimming pools and hot tubs.
Swimmers might be able to catch some of the warmth when treading water towards the edge of the pool, or might choose to climb out of the water, wrap up in a towel and snuggle with their nearest and dearest around the fire pit.
In addition to helping everyone to get warm and dry off after swimming laps, fire pits look absolutely incredible when placed near bodies of water. The effect of the dancing flames reflecting off of the water is truly magical, and will create a snug and cozy atmosphere for everyone.
3. Intimate Fire Pit Patios
In order to create a warm and intimate atmosphere, many homeowners make the decision to construct a smaller patio area, separate from the remainder of their outdoor living spaces, that is strictly dedicated to gathering around the fire pit.
Both round and rectangular fire pits work well in this type of intimate environment, and the intricate, natural beauty of the fire pit is easily complimented by Techo-Bloc pavers and other hardscaping materials.
It’s also easy to introduce your patio furnishings to this space, pulling your chairs, couches, love seats and benches close to the fire where you can spend time with your family and friends. This is a great setting for having a glass of wine or hot cider and just enjoying one another’s company.
4. Fire Pits with Tiered Seating
This is a fabulous idea for any homeowner who regularly entertains larger groups of people. Whether you’ve got a robust family or a teenager with a lot of friends, you need to have plenty of seating around your fire pit in order for everyone to enjoy their time together.
This approach plays on tiered seating, almost like what you’d see in a stadium or amphitheater setting. Here, you can use Techo-Bloc wall blocks and similar hardscaping materials to create multiple rows of “stone” benches around the fire pit.
For a round fire pit, the seating can be curved and arranged into a semicircle, whereas a rectangular fire pit might lend itself to straight bench seating. Because the fire pit then becomes the focal point of the entire area, you can situate a storyteller or musician in this space to entertain your loved ones or lead everyone in song.
You can build up the rows as high as you like, establishing a back row back rest that also doubles as a retaining wall for your property. Because it can also act as a retaining wall, this is a smart idea for sloped or hilly properties as well.
