6 Fire Feature Ideas Sure To Electrify

Feature Ideas That Are Sure To Electrify

Do you love the outdoors? Do you know how fire can electrify the spirit and soothe the mind? Looking for fire feature ideas that will do just this?

More than 60% of adults in America spend less than five hours outdoors every week. That means we spend less than 3% of our week outside. 

Between office jobs, going to school, and sleeping, it’s no surprise that we spend most of our time indoors. 

The trouble is, if you’ve invested money in a backyard swimming pool, 5 hours a week isn’t enough to make it worthwhile. 

Fire Feature Ideas

Luckily, the right fire feature ideas can make your space more inviting and keep it usable as the weather gets cooler. Read on to get some fire feature inspiration to electrify your space and encourage you to spend more time outside.

1. A Built-in Stone Fire Pit 

If you’re looking for a fire feature that’s also functional, you can’t beat a built-in fire pit. Use it on warm summer days to roast hot dogs and on cool fall evenings to make s’mores. 

Plus, a fire pit makes for a great gathering place during outdoor parties. 

2. A Classic Outdoor Brick Fireplace

If you’re looking for a way to add coziness to your pool deck, spring for an outdoor fireplace. Put up a pergola with curtains and arrange comfy furniture in front of the fireplace to create the perfect outdoor living room. 

You can even turn the fireplace into an outdoor pizza oven for the ultimate outdoor entertaining spot. 

3. A Combination of Fire and Water Feature

If you really want your pool area to make a statement, consider a fire feature that also uses water. This idea combines a spillover water feature with a square fire bowl in the center. 

Whether you’re having a summer pool party or an outdoor gathering on the pool deck, your guests will be impressed by this luxury fire pit. 

4. A Sunken Fire Pit and Conversation Area

You’ve heard about the sunken living rooms of the 1960s, but what about a sunken poolside fire pit? Don’t worry, there’s no carpet in sight. This design idea keeps the drama of the original sunken living room but updates it for the modern pool. 

To use this idea as inspiration, install a fire pit at the pool level. Surround it with a round stone seating area for an intimate outdoor gathering spot.  

5. An Open Linear Fireplace

For a modern home with a rectangular swimming pool, consider an open linear fireplace. Instead of a traditional outdoor brick fireplace with a chimney, this low-profile fireplace shows off its flames from both sides. 

Install the fireplace at one end of your pool and set up a seating area on the other side. The fireplace will add instant ambiance to your backyard.  

6. In-Pool Fire Pits

One of the most electrifying fire feature ideas is the in-pool fire pit. These gas-powered fire pits get installed within the boundaries of the pool. Place one at each corner for a truly eye-catching design. 

If you host a lot of evening poolside parties, in-pool fire pits would be a perfect choice.
