25+ PERFECT Fire Pit Paver Ideas: Outdoor Patio And Yard Pavers For Fire Pits

| |

We’re focusing on fire pit pavers here, and boy do we have some good ones!

Fire pits are great in and of themselves, and you can put them anywhere within reason. But when you set them up with the right pavers, you’re taking your fire pit game to a whole other level.

As you know, there are many different types of pavers – different colors, textures, shapes, and sizes – and they can be made from different materials – stone, brick, concrete, and so on – and simply knowing what’s out there can be a mission!

However, hopefully, these patio and outdoor paver ideas for fire pits will inspire and enlighten you as to what’s possible.

 A delightful circular fire pit paver idea with river stones as a border.

The seating is ideal and the setting is topped off perfectly with lights.

This property in Pennsylvania is using Unilock pavers over a large area.

It’s under construction but you know it’s going to be amazing. The curves and the different color pavers add a wow factor to the design.

A wonderful backyard landscape design incorporating pavers in many ways.

The fire pit and fire pit chairs are on stones but they have a border of paving tiles.

This design is good because the pavers will weather equally without chairs over them.

Another stunning fire pit area is under construction, and this time it’s being done with natural stone pavers.

Stone pavers tend to last longer than concrete as they’re a lot stronger. Also, some would consider them a bit nice with the color variation.

Compared to some of the other paving designs featured here, this area has a large diameter for a lot of seating.

Brick and concrete can create a similar effect to pavers without the price tag.

Also, whereas you may need to get someone in to do the paving, you could potentially DIY an area paved like this.

This fire pit area has been set down into the earth for shelter from the wind.

It has been tastefully paved with stone around the circumference. These types of pavers are easy to powerwash and clean when they get dirty.

An area like this is definitely on my retirement bucket list!

This concrete fire pit has likely been set up on an area that was already paved with standard pavers.

You don’t always need an entire area designed around the fire pit. Instead, make the fire pit part of your existing landscape design.

A simple paved fire pit zone in front a magnificent home.

It’s a large outdoor living space that would also suit a BBQ and plenty more chairs!

Click right to see what this setting looked like before being tidied up and decorated.

These pavers are roughly shaped and laid in a way that fits this yard perfectly.

I like the inner circle of stones as well as it will be a good catchment for any ash and debris and stops people from getting too close.

Click right to see the paved fire pit area.

Breaking the trend, and perhaps setting a new one, this paved fire pit area is not in a circle but in a square.

Most of the previous fire pits have been circular, but this paved design suits the square fire pit.

It’s always nice to have a border of different colored pavers around the outside as well, isn’t it?

Now, this is a pretty epic brick paver idea for a fire pit and it shows what you can do!

It’s another design made with Unilock pavers in granite and dark charcoal along with Fendt Products bricks in red.

Make sure you check out the other image in this post as it’s a hardscaping dream.

The pavers and tiles cover a large area comprising of a fire pit with a conversation set, a swimming pool, and a dining area.

Large pavers set the scene for this reclaimed brick fire pit.

The curved bench is made of oak sleepers.

I love the paving but I can’t help but ask ‘Is the seating going to be that comfortable?’

Also, if the paved area had been larger you could add extra chairs around the other side of the fire pit.

Again, this is wonderfully designed using pavers, tiles, stone, and bricks.

This type of set-up really pops and would be easy to keep clean, but the permanent seating isn’t my favorite.

When I’m sitting around my fire pit or chiminea, I’m always moving my chair to get closer to the heat or further away.

Also, when it’s a wood-burning fire pit, the smoke will blow in different directions throughout the day or evening. 

Fixed seating obviously can’t be moved so it’s possible you’ll end up shivering!

This hardscaped paver design is incredibly intricate and detailed.

How many types of paver and brick do you see here?

I could at least 7 different shapes, sizes, and colors.

This isn’t being set up for a fire pit but rather for an outdoor fireplace, but it almost feels like a fire pit should be going in the middle there.

Simple large paving tiles around a large propane fire pit.

The traditional tiles and wicker furniture tie in well with the setting.

A paved patio area is perfect for spending long summer evenings making memories with friends and family.

Traditional brick pavers lead to what almost looks like a community fire pit – though it is on private property.

I’m not sure I’d want everyone looking on while I have a nice evening in front of the fire, but this way it’s easier to invite others in!

And, while I love the tidy pavers, one possible problem is the trees over the wood-burning fire pit – they’ll definitely require a good spark screen to prevent any tree fires.

This wonderful paving design takes things to another level.

The pavers are beautiful with different colors running through them – they almost look textured.

The paved area is contained nicely by an equally lovely stone wall with an onyx black pillar cap.

When you don’t have the budget to tile your patio or yard specifically for a fire pit, just plonk it down on existing pavers.

The heat radiating from beneath the fire pit will be fine on the pavers but would kill the grass or damage a wooden deck.

You could put down a heat-resistant mat on the tiles to be safe – especially if you’ll be using the same spot regularly.

A large light-colored tiled BBQ and fire pit area under a hardtop gazebo – the blue fire glass is nice too!

Because this is a gas fire pit it won’t put out as much heat, nor any sparks, so it’s OK under cover.

Here we have a nice juxtaposition of the reclaimed brick fire pit and steel fire pit ring insert with tile pavers.

The overhead lighting really finishes it off and makes everything feel magical.

Another excellent paved fire pit setting by the lake – I feel more relaxed just looking at it.

As with many of the other examples, this design fits in so well against the water, mountains, and sky. 

The large stones bordering the large pavers give a sense of grandeur that you couldn’t achieve with smaller-scale materials.

 And lastly, if you have a fire pit ready before the patio pavers are laid down, use a fire pit mat.

This is the Safeparty fire pit mat under my small cast iron fire pit.

As mentioned earlier, it stops the heat from the fire pit killing or damaging the surface underneath.


Paver Ideas For Fire Pits

Whatever materials you want to pave with, I hope this has given you a bit of inspiration.

Brick, stone, concrete, or tile pavers all look good when picked correctly for the right setting.

Whatever type of backyard design you’re doing, there is the perfect paver design out there for you!

We have another round-up of fire pit ideas that focuses on the different types of fire pits that are out there.

While I prefer wood-burning personally, propane and natural gas fire pits definitely have their place.

Not everyone wants to be buying and storing firewood!

Also, with propane, you get the benefit of basically just flipping a switch and you’re away, you don’t have to worry about lighting the fire pit.
