Question: Should we buy a pre-made fire pit or should we build one that matches our custom patio? -- audience members Andrea and Jason.
Designer Taniya Nayak of HGTV’s ‘Restaurant: Impossible’ put on her therapist hat to settle a debate between a husband and wife. Get a custom look while saving time and money by doing a combination of both, she suggests to them.
Taniya demonstrates how surprisingly easy it is to customize an affordable store-bought fire pit by using bricks or pavers (this is a great use for leftover materials from a previous project). Just stack them up around your portable fire pit-- square or round -- and use sand or gravel to fill in any gaps.
