What should I consider when designing my outdoor fire pit seating?

The seating for your outdoor fire pit, patio fire pit or backyard fire pit needs to suit your fire pit area while being a place for you and your guests to be comfortable and enjoy. The fire bowl, fire pit or fireplace design should inspire the colour and feel of your chairs, allowing attention to detail that will look sleek and pleasing to the eye. Your fire pit area will be used for everything from toasting marshmallows, gazing at the stars or catching up with your favourite people, so it's important to add a special touch with one of our many seating area designs. Our chairs are made to suit your space, and we believe the seating place should be one that can be long enjoyed, so we use some of the best quality materials to ensure durability and longevity of use.

Some considerations when designing your fire pit seating should be:

The space where your seating will be located.
Will the seating be on the ground, near the fire or in the garden?

How and where you will you store your chairs?
Will they be tucked out of the way, stored next to the pit, in their own space in the sun room or shed, or will they be a permanent fixture in your garden?

What kind of seating do you prefer?
Do you prefer a bench seat, low back, reclined, sunken or low laying chair?

What would you like your seating to be made with?
We have a range of options to create your seating, from wood to stone, timber and steel.

Additionally, we can give you tips and tricks to keep your space looking clean and minimal, or exciting and full, while adding design and cohesion to your outdoor space.

Replacement Coating

A failing deck protection coating can look unsightly and will increase the chances of premature timber failure. These coatings need to be stripped right back using products or sanding the timber to return the surface back to bare timber. If dome head nails have been using during the construction, then sanding the deck is not an option. For bullet head nails, screws or clip systems the deck can be sanded using professional sanding equipment. Once the deck has been restored back to bare timber, a new coating system can then be applied, usually requiring an initial 3 coat system. Once the new coating has been completed the deck is back to full strength and should be reviewed every 3 months to assess its next ‘top up’ application.
