Outdoor fire pits add a stylish feature for your Ottawa patio

Teak Furniture Is the Perfect Pairing For An Ottawa Fire Pit

It’s finally here – summer has arrived in Ottawa, and the weather can’t be beat. Nothing beats unwinding after a day in the city quite like relaxing with friends around a fire pit. An outdoor fire pit is a great way to light up the night and entertain guests as the sun goes down, but it needs furniture to match. That’s where teak furniture comes into play, providing the perfect complement to a fire pit in Ottawa’s summer months.

Choosing the right fire pit is the first step. Understanding what you want out of a fire pit is important – traditional fire pits still rely on wood as fuel, but an increasingly common option is a gas-fuelled fire pit (requiring a propane tank like the kind found on a barbecue). Modern convenience comes at a cost, but opting for a traditional fire pit may also put you at the mercy of municipal burn permits and the availability of good firewood.

Regardless of what option you go for, pairing your fire pit with comfortable and stylish teak furniture is a sure-fire way to create a beautiful space for entertaining your guests or relaxing with family and friends.

Teak furniture is a great option in this regard, and not only because it resists the heat: teak boasts all-around durability due to its natural oil content and resistance to rot. In short, you don’t have to worry about bringing this furniture in when the rainclouds roll over. With numerous contemporary, casual, and traditional designs available, it’s easy and fun to match teak furniture with an outdoor fire pit.

With this in mind, here are a few things to consider when designing an outdoor fire pit in Ottawa:

  • How will the space be used? Are you entertaining guests or unwinding with those you’re close to?
  • Do you want to invest in propane refills, or are you a fan of the traditional bonfire look?
  • What sort of teak furniture will work in your space?
  • Do you want to include features such as benches or table space for serving food?

A fire pit is a beautiful and stunning feature for any backyard, and with the addition of matching teak furniture, you can easily create a comfortable and relaxing space that’s sure to be the feel-good hit of the summer with friends, family, and maybe even the whole neighbourhood.
