It seems like everyone has a fire pit area in their yard these days. I see these people with their large yards and they just carve out a space in their massive backyard for a DIY firepit. They just scoop out the grass, stack some rocks, and viola – firepit. Are you dreaming of a fire pit area in your backyard? Even with limited space or city regulations, you can achieve the look and feel of a simple fire pit area on your pool deck. Say goodbye to digging and hello to a stylish fire table setup that incorporates small fire pit propane options and comfortable Adirondack chairs. Even with limited space in your small back yard or poolside area, there are plenty of deck and fire pit ideas that can turn your outdoor space into a welcoming retreat.

We have a small backyard, but we have always wanted a fire pit area and my husband has wanted Adirondack chairs forever. So, we considered making a firepit area in the yard; but, our yard is just too small to give up that much area to a fire pit. We have a rather large area of pool deck that we had dedicated to some lounge chairs. (I actually painted these outdoor cushions. Check out that DIY here.) We never sat in these lounge chairs, therefore we had a lot of deck space that wasn’t really being utilized. So, we decided to trade out our deck chairs that we never sat on for Adirondack chairs and a fire table. This poolside fire pit idea has all the ambiance of a real fire pit area and we didn’t sacrifice any yard space or have to dig a hole.
Our Pool Deck Fire Pit Table
In our poolside fire pit area, we’ve created a perfect alternative fire pit solution. Our fire table hides its own propane tank, providing a seamless and hassle-free experience. Its perfect if you have a small backyard or if your city ordinances would prevent you from building an actual firepit. We can do just about anything you would do in a built in fire pit area. We can even roast marshmallows and we don’t have to build an actual fire. With a hard cover over the fire area, the table surface remains functional even when not in use. Additionally, a weather cover keeps the entire setup protected, ensuring its longevity. Check out Fire Table Round Up for all of my fire table recommendations.
The Perfect Adirondack Chairs: Fire Pit Seating Area
Of course, no fire pit area is complete without the timeless charm of Adirondack chairs. Am I right? Well, do you know what makes the perfect Adirondack chair? It’s a combination of features, really. We bought these because they checked all the boxes. Our carefully selected chairs boast an oversized design, a curved backrest, and a rounded front for added comfort. Made from high-grade Poly, they exhibit the appearance of wood while being weather-resistant, requiring no painting or maintenance. Even tall individuals like my 6’5″ husband find these chairs comfortable. To make it even better, we added matching ottomans for a truly comfortable experience. Our Coastal Teak color choice complements any outdoor space.
They also fold and recline. Really, these chairs are great for any pit area and tall husbands. My husband is 6’5″ and he wanted these chairs because they actually fit him.
Throughout the year, our fire pit area serves multiple purposes. During the summer, it’s an ideal spot to lounge in the shade. As temperatures cool, igniting the fire table brings warmth and ambiance to our outdoor gatherings. We’ve enjoyed countless evenings roasting marshmallows and even transformed the space into an outdoor theater, with the fire as the centerpiece. The versatility and functionality of our pool deck fire pit area have far surpassed our initial expectations.
If you’re inspired by our fire pit area, it’s time to explore creative fire pit solutions for small spaces. Embrace the fire pit aesthetics without the need for extensive digging. Discover the compact beauty of a pool deck fire pit and design your own urban fire pit experience.
