Poolside Fire Features For True Beauty and Inspiration

Outdoor living environments continue to rise in popularity throughout the United States, especially in Texas, where the weather ranges from a sub-tropical steppe climate, semi-arid for most of the state, to arid in the far west. Therefore, people are taking advantage of their backyard space, from indoor swimming pools to outdoor kitchens and living rooms.

Here we delve into poolside fire features as there are many options; fireplaces, fire pits, fire tables and bowls. While reading, remember that the combination of water and fire can be mesmerizing and set a mood like no other.

So let’s get started touching a bit about each and their benefits.


Poolside fireplaces can add an element of luxury to any outdoor living space, and they are a perfect choice for those who want to create a cozy and intimate atmosphere. They are great if you have an outdoor living area with sofas and an outdoor TV where you, your family, and friends can hang out.

They come in various styles, from modern and sleek to traditional and rustic, so there is a fireplace to suit any design aesthetic.
One of the benefits of a poolside fireplace is that it can be built to suit any design aesthetic; it provides more heat than other fire features, making it ideal for cooler evenings or when entertaining a large group of people. However, fireplaces also require more space than other fire features, so they may not be suitable for smaller poolside areas.

When choosing a fireplace for your poolside area, consider the type of fuel you want to use. Gas fireplaces are low-maintenance and convenient, as they can be turned on and off with a switch while wood-burning fireplaces provide a more authentic and rustic feel.

Fire Pits

Fire pits are also increasing in popularity for poolside landscapes, as they are versatile and can be customized to fit any backyard design style. They can be constructed in any size and shape, from small to large, round, rectangular or square. In addition, a range of materials, including stone, metal, and concrete, to match your backyard pool decor is doable.

One of the benefits of a fire pit is that it provides a 360-degree view of the fire, making it ideal for entertaining and creating a focal point for your outdoor living space.

They are easy to use and maintain; like fireplaces, they can be gas-fueled and turned on and off with a switch. If you want an authentic campfire feel, and more heat, add sticks and wood stumps to get that beautiful fire glowing.

Fire Tables

Firetables are somewhat new poolside fire features. They combine a table’s functionality with a fire’s warmth and ambiance. They come in various sizes and styles, from small, coffee table-sized models to larger bar and dining table-sized versions, so you can choose one that fits your needs whether poolside, in the outdoor kitchen or outdoor living room area. In addition, like fireplaces and fire pits, they can be customized in various materials such as stone, metal, and glass to match the home’s architectural style and backyard decor.

Add artificial colored stones, and you will surely achieve the ‘wow’ factor.

Fire Bowls

Fire bowls can be portable, making them excellent poolside water features. As the types are limitless, it’s a choice to consider. They can sit on pool retaining walls, pool posts or anywhere you choose. If they are light enough, they can be moved about when desired.

If you want to be more creative, consider a fire water bowl that fires up as it spills water from the bowl into the pool. Sounds impressive. Well, they indeed are.
