Brick-Lined DIY Fire Pit and Outdoor Seating Area

A fire pit that serves as a reminder that you must spend some quality-time in the yard every time you get a glimpse of it. A store-bought pit is employed inside a round-shaped assembly of rustic bricks that is further surrounded by another brick-paved seating area on the garden. Place a few wooden chairs on the bricked surface that separates the rest of the yard with the seating, throw in some cozy cushions on the chairs, lastly, decorating the same the section with some lovely planters. This inspiration goes for a variety of planters including galvanised containers, wooden ones, terra cotta pots and more. The final glamour comes into action by the addition of bright golden lights over the whole section, hanging in mid-air with the help of wooden dowels inserted into the ground.

Here’s another circular fire pit that is built entirely using tree rings, sporting the ability to fit into just about any backyard setting.

5. Firepit with Swing Chairs

Firepit with Swing Chairs

The ultimate showstopper of this DIY backyard firepit is those swing seats hanging to the metal frame worked up around the pit with the help of chains. The simple, super functional and oh so budget-friendly setup is a must-have for all those who would love to spend those lovely evenings with the family outside, cherishing a nice cup of beverage. Once the frame for hanging the swings is worked up with rectangular pieces of wood and dowels, it is spray painted in deep black to complement the natural weathered texture and grey hue of the bricks that are used to build the firepit in the middle. To differentiate the remaining yard with the firepit area, a large circular disc around the pit is lined with fine gravel, and it’s done!

6. Firepit with Built-in Stands

Firepit with Built-in Stands

You surely won’t find anything easier on the list than this inspiration shared by Roomodeling that simply assembles the different elements together instead of building a firepit from scratch. Yet, everything is done while keeping it all surprisingly pocket-friendly. I just love how the whole work is done using a store-bought metal firepit with built-in stands that leave enough room underneath the pit, accompanying it by thick wooden logs on four sides. Instead of working up the setup on the garden bed, this one goes for a bed of gravel and small stones on one corner of the garden to get it all done. Simply throw in pieces of wood and tree trunk pieces inside the pit and you are all ready to set them on fire. For an extra touch of decoration, adding a few terra cotta pots or planters near the pit is a great idea.

7. Firepit with Patio

Firepit with Patio

Not just any ordinary fire pit, this one is actually a complete backyard makeover that builds a whole seating area around the pit, further lining the area with a one-of-a-kind arc-like table that’s made out of more bricks and stones. The great spot to gather is more like a unique patio that features a fire pit as its focal point. A variety of stonework goes into the making of the patio, wherein square bricks are shaped up together to form the circular fire pit, throwing in smaller stones inside. The same bricks are used to build the curve-like tabletop that’s further adorned with large marble tiles in a rustic appeal. Choose another geometrical stone tiles for the floor of the patio area, and voila! Last but not the least, add a bunch of wicker chairs or ottomans to make for some comfy seating.

White totally owns this patio that is marked by a breathtakingly beautiful firepit in a lovely rectangular shape.

The rustic farmhouse-like wooden flooring goes with the firepit magically well, taking things to all new levels of awesomeness with a super huge L-shaped seating placed around the pit. The seating platform is lined with comfortable mattresses that come in milky white, while lots of cushions and throw pillows in the same white fabric cover work as the cherry on the cake for this inspiration. The overall look flaunted by the arrangement is absolutely regal, having the marble and shades of white dominate the scene at their best.

Patio Fire Pit with Stones and Marble

Build a gorgeous round patio in the middle of your yard by paving the ground with beautiful stones and marbles. The special part about this patio base here is that each of the tiles building the ground feature a different shape of its own. Plus, the intended imperfections and varied hues of the bricks that form the sides of the firepit work as the perfect extension of the patio floor. Finally, the top surface is finished up with fine curved marble tiles. While some low-height marble pillars make the scene even more rich in this idea by Roomodeling, you can always go for a minimalist construction. To make the area ready to spend an evening, throw in a few large, cosy comfy chairs side tables into the picture. The pastel hues of the upholstery on the chairs goes just right with their brown-black built.
