Add visual interest to your fire pit design by using a fire pit insert.

If you're planning to install a fire pit as a feature or focal point of your outdoor living space, you may want to browse options and ideas for fire pit inserts. These crucial design touches add a great deal of visual interest to any fire pit, and they can help transform your backyard into a truly unique gathering place.


Inspirational Outdoor Fireplace Design Ideas

The first consideration when browsing fire pit insert designs is shape. You'll probably want (and may even need) to match the shape of your fire pit burner to the shape of the fire pit. Rectangular or circular shapes are the most popular designs, but you'll also find star shapes and other unique twists that will make the flame a real point of curiosity for guests.

Next up you'll need to think about materials for your fire pit insert. Stainless steel is the most popular option for the burner trough, but you'll have many options when it comes to the "burning display" (the portion of the fire pit guests will see). From faux logs to diamond glass to crystals, the options are varied, and many are quite beautiful.

Finally, you'll need to decide on the ignition mechanism for your fire pit insert. You'll have more or less two choices here—remote ignition, fired by a switch located somewhere in your home or outdoor living space, or push-button ignition located on or adjacent to the fire pit itself.
