For those seeking a useful way to spend their time during social distancing—or anyone simply interested in forging a deeper connection with their homes—HB has launched Home Love, a series of daily tips and ideas to make every minute indoors more productive (and gratifying!).
A fire pit is an instant-upgrade of your outdoor space. It adds warmth and a beautiful glow to your backyard, and let's be real: there's nothing quite like a cool summer night by the fire. It's cozy, it's romantic, and making it happen in your yard is easier than you think. As long as you have an outdoor area to work with and you're allowed to add a fire pit (renters, you should check with your landlord first!), you're good to go.
In terms of choosing a fire pit, the easiest route to go (and often, the most inexpensive and aesthetically-pleasing) is a wood-burning fire pit or bowl. You won't have to worry about hooking it up to a fuel source like a propane tank—you just have to place it somewhere that it's safe to have an open flame. Wood-burning fire pits are easy to buy online and come in tons of styles. Another popular option is a propane fire pit. You can find them online too, but note that they tend to cost more. They're also often larger—or just take up more space in general—because they either have a built-in housing for the propane tank or require a separate cover for it, not to mention the fuel line.
In any case, if you're looking to add a little fire pit magic to your outdoor space, these are some of the best—and most stylish—fire pits you can buy online, whether you want a wood-burning fire pit or a propane-fueled one. There are even a few budget-friendly options under $200, and a portable option for camping or if you want a lower-commitment fire pit.
