Choosing the Best Firepit for your Backyard
Get ready to warm up while you chill out! A fire pit is the ultimate backyard accessory for creating a warm ambience, casting a magical glow, and encouraging friends and family to relax. If you've never owned a fire pit before, here are a few tips to get you to cozy nights on the patio faster.
What is a Fire Pit?
At its most basic, an outdoor fire pit table is a freestanding metal vessel in which you can enjoy a propane-powered flame. A fire pit table is like an outdoor coffee or chatting table, but it has a campfire in the middle- just a much more glamorous alternative to a traditional campfire. You can place drinks and snacks down on the flat surface surrounding the fire pit just like a regular table— just remember not to put them too close. Fire pits are available in many different styles, shapes, colours, and sizes.
Fire Pit Placement & Safety
Finding the right spot for your fire pit is important for your comfort and safety. The fire pit should sit on a level spot to limit the possibility that the firepit will tip over. The firepit should not sit directly over a grassy area but should be set up over something that isn't combustible, like a stone or concrete.
Your fire pit should sit at least 10 to 20 feet away from your house. Remember that you're dealing with an open flame, and safety should be your number-one concern. These fire pits can emit a lot of heat. Even if you have a heat shield in place to keep things from getting too warm, the fire pits still heat up surrounding structures.
The idea of a cozy fire pit nook set up in your covered porch or under a pergola or gazebo might sound tempting, but this can present a few safety concerns, too. It’s best to install your fire pit in the open air. Because floating embers can drift up out of the fire pit and land on rafters or the roof and that’s not a risk you’ll want to take. This is also true for trees, never place your fire pit under overhanging tree branches. In fact, it’s always a good idea to keep a fire extinguisher close to the fire pit when you're enjoying it.
Let’s face it, there is something truly magical about watching a flame. And with a fire pit, you can have that ambiance and tranquility with function and fashion – it warms up your nights, extends your summer, and it makes a perfect centerpiece of your outdoor oasis. We have picked 8 fire pit tables that can be coordinated into any setting, so you can find the perfect size, shape, and style to make your summer last longer!
