outdoor conversation pit ideas

If you love to host parties or just invite a few friends over to your home and have plenty of outdoor space, you should go for a unique outdoor function – a conversation pit. It used to be a trend and now it’s making a big comeback. There are several advantages – it’s a lot cozier, it’s a unique piece for any outdoor space, and you’ll really feel special in it as it’s usually a bit separate from the rest of the back yard. They can be made and clad with stone, brick, and concrete for durability and covered with wood for coziness and warmth. Let’s take a look at some ideas on how to steal.

Sunken pits

Sunken conversation pits are a hot trend because they look really amazing. It’s like a separate zone in your outdoor space. It can be modern and elegant, with simple padded seats, and you can place a table or fire bowl in the middle for maximum comfort. If you have a pool, consider sinking your conversation pit right into the pool. It looks and feels amazing!

Usual pits

Common conversation pits are no lower than your deck level – they are on the same level or at least have cushioned seats on the deck. They are a lot easier to design. Add colorful pillows and candle lanterns to make the space more welcoming, and fireplaces are of course a good idea.

Pool poses make pool time super fun and your pool inviting. Floats can be speakers, toys, or just swimmers to relax in, and if you have kids I think these parts are a must have. What can you buy to delight your kids? Let's take a look at the coolest options.


The animal theme is perhaps the most popular one for children's pool swimmers. These can be some marine animals: lobsters, sharks, orcas, turtles, and even aquatic dinosaurs. You can also find some birds like swans, ducks and so on. Lizards and unicorns are welcome for those looking for something out of the ordinary. Remember that your children's swimmers should be comfortable, safe, colorful, and have handles for comfort.


Foodie poses are cute and fun too. I'm sure your kids would love to try a hot dog or donut pose - choose the fun and colorful types of food, of course!

Other ideas

There are so many fun and cute ideas to try out! If you have young children, consider options with very comfortable seats and secure handles to keep the child safe. If you have multiple kids or are planning a pool party, why not buy a private floating island for your pool? Another fun idea is a maze, and a floating ring toss will keep the kids busy all day.
