A fire pit is a worthwhile investment for your outdoor space in North Carolina, but there are two options for bringing it to fruition: a custom design or a pre-designed kit. When choosing between a custom or kit fire pit, you'll want to ask yourself three questions to determine the best option for you. First, you'll want to consider whether you have a clear idea of how you want it to look; a custom design allows you to create it from scratch, while a kit is great if you need help getting started. Second, you'll want to consider how quickly you want to complete your project; kit fire pits typically take less time to install than custom ones. Third, you should consider your budget; kits are usually less costly, but if money isn't an issue, then custom is a good option, too!
1. Do you have a clear idea of how you want your fire pit to look?
The first question to ask yourself when choosing between a custom or kit fire pit is whether you already have a clear idea of how you want it to look. A custom fire pit allows you to design it from scratch, giving you creative freedom over its appearance. For example, you can customize everything from its structure, shape, and size to its materials to ensure your new fire feature meets your vision and aesthetic preferences.
On the other hand, if you don't have a specific idea for your fire pit's look and need some help getting started, a pre-designed kit may be the way to go. Kits are great because they already have the structure, shape, and size pre-made, and you can choose from numerous options to match your style! From there, you select your desired materials and tailor your fire pit to your preferences.
2. How quickly do you want your fire pit to be completed?
Another question to ask yourself when choosing between a custom or kit fire pit is how quickly you want it completed. Kits usually take less time to install because fewer preparations are needed before construction begins, as they've already been pre-designed. So, a kit may be the best option if you want your fire pit project to be completed sooner rather than later.
Meanwhile, custom fire pits can take longer since the design is created from scratch. Constructing a unique layout may also extend the turnaround time. However, if you don't mind waiting a little longer to get exactly what you want from your new fire feature, custom is a good option, too!
3. What's your budget like for your fire pit?
The last question to ask yourself when choosing between a custom or kit fire pit is what your budget is like. Kits are generally more cost-efficient since they're quicker to bring to fruition and may require less labor, making them perfect if you're on a tight budget. In contrast, custom fire pits usually cost more because they're designed from scratch, and more labor goes into building a specific layout. However, if money isn't an issue, you can opt for a custom feature!
