Everything you Need to Know about Fire Pit Tables

For many families and individuals who live in homes with a small exterior yard area, having a bonfire at night might seem like an activity that can only be enjoyed during your yearly family camping trip. Building a large and expansive fire pit in your yard requires a bit of space, and not everyone is fortunate to have that at their disposition. Fortunately, with a fire pit table, families and homeowners can create the perfect space for enjoying an outdoor fire, even if your β€œback yard” is nothing more than a small deck connected to your living room. In this short article, we will explain the advantages of investing in a fire pit table and what you should look for when purchasing a fire pit table for your property.

Fire Pit Tables: A Perfect Way to Enjoy your Outdoor Living Areas Even in Cool Weather

According to new research conducted on behalf of the International Casual Furnishings Association, an incredible 86 percent of households in the United States have some sort of outdoor living space connected to their home. Whether that is a small deck, or a complete, luxurious outdoor kitchen and dining area, outdoor living areas are a fantastic way to increase the β€œsquare footage” of your homeΒ΄s livable area without having to invest in major home renovations.

Unfortunately, the vast majority of households essentially abandon their outdoor living areas as soon as the fall weather turns unbearably cold. As soon as you cannot enjoy a relaxing evening on your back deck because the cold is a bit too much, most people cover up their outdoor furniture and take their entertaining inside. What if there was a relatively simple and inexpensive way to renovate your outdoor living area so as to be able to better enjoy that space, even during the coldest and darkest months of the year?

A fire pit table is a piece of exterior furniture that comes with a table and a flame centerpiece where people can enjoy the warmth, glow, and light of a fire. The β€œtable” part of the fire pit table can be used to place drinks or appetizers, while the β€œpit” is where a small fire is lit to keep those around it warm. Fire pit tables can be fuelled by a wide range of materials, firewood, gas, and even coal. A fire pit table, besides being extremely functional, is also a statement piece that comes in many designs and styles.

Top 3 Reasons to Purchase a Fire Pit Table

So why exactly should you decide to purchase a fire pit table instead of opting for an outside heater or a permanent fire pit? Below, we take a look at the top four reasons to choose a fire pit table for your outdoor living area.

  • Extend the β€œUsefulness” of your Outdoor Living Area: If the evenings in your area start to get cold around October, and it doesn’t start to warm up until the month of March, then most people essentially abandon their outdoor patios, exterior dining areas, and other types of outdoor living areas for half the year. With a fire pit table, however, you should find that your family and your guests can comfortably enjoy the cool fall evenings and even mild winter weather. A fire pit table not only offers warmth and light, but also encourages people to gather together around the fire, creating a perfect ambiance for family time or for entertaining guests.
  • Convenience and Versatility: Of course, a regular fire pit would also create a nice place for people to gather around outside during the cooler months of the year. However, a fire pit generally requires a professional mason for stacking and cementing the blocks, bricks, or stones, and any permanent seating you might also choose to include. Once the fire pit is built, it is most likely not going anywhere. With a fire pit table, however, homeowners can easily move the table to whatever part of your outdoor living area that you are using at that time. For example, if you are having company over for a fall barbecue, the fire pit table can easily be moved to your grilling area so that people can stay warm while the steaks are on the grill.
  • Affordability and that Natural Feel: Lastly, a fire pit table is also the most affordable solution for outdoor heating. A regular fire pit will generally require specialized labor to install, and outdoor gas heaters can be expensive. A fire pit table, on the other hand, is generally more affordable, and the only β€œinstallation” required is deciding where you want to place the fire pit table. Furthermore, fire pit tables offer a natural, nostalgic form of warmth and light that give you that β€œcamping” ambiance that many people enjoy.

We offer top-notch assistance through our product specialist team, but if you're shopping on your own or just looking at what we offer ahead of time, it's good to keep these factors in mind:

  • Fuel Type - Fire features are generally fueled by either natural gas or propane.

What Factors to Take into Consideration when Purchasing a Fire Pit Table?

As we have seen above, a fire pit table offers a simple, practical and affordable way to extend the usefulness of your outdoor living area while also creating a unique ambiance for your family and guests. When purchasing the best fire pit table, it is important to take into consideration a few of the following factors.

Type of Fuel

Do you prefer the natural feel of a wood fire, or do you prefer the ease and convenience of a gas fire? In general, fire pit tables that are fuelled by gas can be instantly turned on and obviously don’t create any sort of smoke. The downside of a gas fire pit table is that you will most likely not be able to move the table due to the gas connection. With firewood, on the other hand, you can more easily move the table, though you will have to have a supply of dry firewood and experience in building and maintaining a fire. You might also consider using charcoal, as this creates a smaller β€œflame” than regular firewood, but still allows you to move the fire pit table if you so desire.

Type of Materials

You also need to take into consideration what type of material the fire pit table and the surrounding outdoor furniture will be made of. Heavy duty, powder-coated steel offers durability, though it is certainly harder to move. Rattan-style furniture can be combined with a fire pit table for a natural look and easier mobility. Stainless steel fire pit tables offer a sleek, modern look, but are generally the most expensive option on the market, while aluminum frames for the fire pit table are lightweight, resilient, and combines nicely with outdoor aluminum furniture.

Fire Pit Table FAQs

Yes. If you opt for a gas-powered fire pit table, these can be placed safely on a wood deck or patio without much concern. If you opt for a charcoal or firewood fuelled fire pit table, you will need to ensure that the table is located away from any plants, wooden railings, and far enough away from your home so that sparks do not create a fire hazard.

For gas powered fire pit tables, you simply turn β€œon” the fire and gather around the table for warmth. Many gas powered fire pit tables have a convenient glass countertop. For charcoal or firewood tables, you will have to ignite the fire. As an added benefit, you might be able to roast marshmallows or even add a small grill for roasting hot dogs while sitting around the table.

This ultimately depends on how much you want to spend, and what β€œaesthetics” you prefer. Rattan and aluminum fire pit tables are generally the most affordable, while stainless steel is the most expensive.

Yes, though when the temperature dips into single digits even a roaring bonfire will probably not be enough to keep you warm. To make it warmer, you could combine other outdoor heating options.

A mid-size gas-powered fire pit table could put out 50,000 BTU, while a larger wood-fired model using good quality and dry logs could be stacked in a way to exude as much as 100,000 BTU. A quality fire pit table is a great option for keeping your family and your guests warm during a cool fall or winter evening.
