Make Your Country Porch Cozy with a Fire Pit

Fire-PitSome days and evenings can get cool, even in the summer time. You can still enjoy a cozy country porch with the addition of a fire pit. Self-contained and safe, you can send that chill packing on your porch or patio. Enjoying your country porch can be much easier with a fire pit that fits into your decor or theme. The choices are many.

Function and Decor

Always, I look for ways to add functional items that work as part of my decorating. It’s just simpler and less expensive overall. That’s what I found with these beautiful fire pits. It really is like bringing your fireplace to your outside living area. Besides looking good on your porch, fire pits help to create a more cozy effect especially when you have guests around. Firepits also function as part of your decor accents.

Favorite Fire Pit Choices

Here are three of my favorites. Each is styled different enough that you can chose the one that works best with your own theme or decor style. You can choose a more modern effect, one that works great in a vintage style and one that works for a country or Western theme.

Of course, one of the best parts is that these really are functional. They are safe to light a small fire. You won’t want a bonfire set in one of these, but for a little extra ambiance and warmth, a fire pit works great. Pick a size that fits in your country porch space. The smaller the porch, the smaller the fire pit you will need. There are lots more choices for fire pits. Just pick your favorite and enjoy your country porch more.

Entertaining with Style

Fire pits make great visual additions to your country porch and really work for having a cozy fire. On Sundays, especially after football games are over, we enjoy retiring to the country porch, lighting a fire and have a relaxing time talking about the great plays of the afternoon’s football. When friends join us, a nice dinner follows, all the time still enjoying our country porch.

So don’t close up your country porch during those cooler days or evenings, bring it to life instead.

    I love to see a throw or lap blanket draped on a country porch chair. It just looks so inviting! Great idea!

    We have a small outdoor fireplace that needs to be replaced. These fire pits look like they just might be the perfect solution for us since we can’t find another one like the one we have. We really enjoy sitting outside with our warm little fire watching the sunset.
