Summer is on the horizon, but as we know all too well, that doesn’t mean guaranteed hot weather here in the UK. We love to spend time outdoors during the lighter months, and it’s such a shame when the temperature isn’t ideal. That’s why we’re always looking for ways to make our outdoor spaces as comfortable, practical and stylish as possible so we can keep enjoying them.
We’ve given our gardens mini-makeovers and invested in bistro sets and BBQs for al fresco dining whenever we want, but what about when the evenings turn chilly? No need to head inside, just invest in a fire pit instead.
Fire pits are the on-trend way of staying warm in your garden after the sun goes down – they’re far more attractive than a patio heater and can act as a focal point to your outdoor socialising space, even when unlit. They make a super useful addition to your outdoor space.
If you browse online for fire pits, you’ll find lots way over the £200-300 mark, but luckily you don’t need to spend even close to that much to get a fire pit that suits your needs. We’ve found plenty under £100, starting from £35, and they’re all still in stock – for now. Fire pits are known to sell out extremely fast. In spring last year, Not On The High Street reported a 51 per cent increase in searches for ‘fire pit’ week on week – so we suggest nabbing yours quickly…
