As the lockdown restrictions lift and socialising in gardens is a possibility once more, we’re looking for ways to make our outdoor spaces as comfortable, practical and stylish as possible.
We’re giving our gardens mini-makeovers and investing in bistro sets and BBQs for al fresco dining whenever we want, but what about when the evenings turn chilly – it is Britain, after all. No need to head inside though, just invest in a fire pit.
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.
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 and they’re all still in stock – for now. Just as there’s a garden furniture shortage warning from retailers, fire pits are also selling out extremely fast – Not On The High Street has reported a 51 per cent increase in searches for ‘fire pit’ week on week – so we suggest nabbing yours quick…
