5 Things To Consider Before Buying a Fire Pit Table for Your Patio

A fire pit table is an awesome feature for any outdoor living space – it offers both warmth and atmosphere, whether on a beautiful starry Summer night or during cooler Fall or chilly Winter months. Fire pit tables can truly extend your outdoor living season.  

If you’re looking to get the most out of your outdoor living space, whether it’s for adding warmth, ambiance, a focal point or all three – a fire pit table is the way to go! And one of the best perks is, they are offered in a wide variety of styles and for different purposes.

Not quite sure where to start? No worries.Our team of outdoor living space specialists are here to help! First, there are a myriad of factors that can be considered before you start your search for the perfect-fit fire pit table for your space. Here are the top five we recommend:  

  1. Local Rules & Regulations 

Before you make your firepit table purchase, you should make sure that you are aware of your local rules and regulations, so that you aren’t making an immediate return to the store. Local ordinances governing fire pits vary by municipality and are intended to maintain the safety of the entire community. Be sure you are familiar with the requirements in your area. 

  1. Fuel 

One of the first things you have to consider is what sort of fuel you want your fire pit to burn. Fire pits can typically burn either propane, natural gas or wood. Wood-burning fire pits produce that cozy crackling sound but require a lot of clean-up and maintenance. Natural gas burns cleaner but requires a professionally installed hardline. Propane tanks need to be refilled frequently, but propane burns the hottest and the brightest. Additionally, propane fire pit tables are portable. You also will want to consider how frequently you will be using it, along with costs associated with fuel. 

  1. Permanent or Portable 

Do you like to switch up your seating areas outside? Do you move often? How about camping? Depending on how you use, and how often you will be using your fire pit table may definitely change what type of table you get – whether it will be large and permanent, or portable. Another factor to consider is your weather conditions and if you will be needing to cover and protect your fire table. 

  1. Size 

The size of the fire pit table you choose should be appropriate to the space you have available for it. When you shop for a table online, you can look at the specifications which contain its exact measurements. Remember that people need space around the table to move around safely and easily, so don’t choose a table that fills up the entire available area. 

  1. Functionality

What do you intend to do with your fire pit table? Do you need multi-functionality to allow your guests to be able to rest their glasses on the edge? Is it for ambiance only? Roasting marshmallows? Creating a cozy outdoor space for Fall? Before you start shopping, know exactly what you require your table to be able to do for you, so you can find one that meets your needs.
