We love fire pits, lord knows, the Love Island fire pit will be the location of all sorts of drama this summer and, as such, it is perhaps one of the most iconic pieces of televised garden furniture. Quite a title to hold, eh? In fact, searches for the best fire pits have skyrocketed by over 200% since the series started this month – wowza. The Majorcan villa’s gas fire pit is, after all, where the majority of the reality TV show’s most tumultuous scenes are filmed – from the dumpings to the re-couplings. So it comes as no surprise that searches for wood burning fire pits have got insanely high and, lucky for you, we’re prepared for such an occasion.
Alongside a neon light sign or two, investing in a fire pit is a sure-fire way to give your garden the Love Island glow-up it deserves. Plus, they’re among the most functional of outdoor investments you can make as you welcome guests ’round for a garden soiree in blustery Britain.
Having a fire pit in your garden will ensure you can remain horizontal on your sun lounger or relaxed on your hanging egg chair after the sun goes down without ending up shivering. What’s more, a gas fire pit will create a gorgeous ambience – casting a beautiful golden glow over the rest of your outdoor space. Dreamy.
But with wood fire pits, bowl fire pits and coffee table fire pits among the many styles on the market, it can be difficult to know where to start. So we’ve whittled it down to the very best.
