A fire pit table is, as the name suggests, a fire pit that also serves as a table. It’s like the more versatile, sophisticated version of your standard fire pit. All fire pit tables are made up of three parts: a tabletop, a solid or legged base, and a slit at the center of the tabletop, which holds fire.
They come in many shapes, sizes, and materials, such as stainless steel, copper, and concrete, and your choice of the table will depend on your style, preferences, and needs. If you’re looking for something more utilitarian, it may be best to select a table with a broader tabletop that can fit more dishware. These highly dynamic tables offer advantages in the way of appearance and lifestyle.
Fire pit tables can foster a social environment where friends and family can gather. They can emanate warmth in the cooler months, providing a cozy outdoor space. They can be considered an outdoor extension of your dining room or your kitchen — with a grill grate, you can cook just about anything atop a fire pit table. All while giving your outdoor space a dash of style, providing a centerpiece around which guests or family members can gather.
A fire table is a focal point in your backyard or patio, where you and your guests can gather in comfort. While fire pits can be a more basic option, fire tables tend to be more architecturally sophisticated statement pieces. The social and utility aspect of a fire table is a significant appeal – you can gather around on chilly nights and use the larger surface area of the fire table to entertain and enjoy a meal or drink with guests.
Many customers can get confused about the differences between a fire pit and a fire table. The simple explanation is that there are slight differences, but these terms are also often used interchangeably.
The most significant difference between a fire pit and a fire table is the larger surface area of a fire table that usually has a base and top design, consisting of more usable space on top. The key to this is that the greater space is designed specifically for entertaining.
Alternatively, a fire pit could be as simple as a hole in the ground but more commonly has a base with a hole in the center for a burner. While a fire pit is a more basic option, there is greater versatility in terms of placement in the backyard and style.
Whether you are interested in a fire pit table or a fire pit, both add a level of ambiance and warmth to your outdoor space. Whether you are most interested in entertaining or looking to roast marshmallows with your family, Audacia Home has various fire pits and fire tables to meet your needs.
Before we get into the most important considerations when choosing a fire pit table, we are going to go over the primary benefits of owning one so you can effectively visualize what it will be like with your new purchase!
Friends, like moths, are drawn to flames, especially when those flames are the centerpiece of your social gathering. Let’s set the scene: it’s a warm summer evening, and you and your friends crowd around the fire pit table in Adirondack chairs, cooking up s’mores, sipping cool drinks, and catching up on old times under the stars. Sounds nice, doesn’t it? If you enjoy hosting gatherings or parties, fire pit tables allow guests an attractive and comfortable setup to gather and talk.
It won’t take long to warm up to your new fire pit table. Literally, though. Fire pit tables allow you to dine al fresco, even in the wintertime, because they keep you toasty while adding style and sophistication to your outdoor space. Don’t limit yourself to the indoors once the temperature drops.
Get cozy around the fire pit table with a hot chocolate and blanket draped around your shoulders.
As long as you don’t get too close…
Warning: fire pit tables will enliven and beautify your outdoor space. Gardens can be full of clunky eyesores: air conditioning units, garbage bins, and garden hoses. Contrarily, a fire pit table makes for a classy and appealing focal point for outdoor festivities.
Patio chairs, outdoor dining tables, and even fire pits are relatively commonplace. But a table with a fire pit inside it is an attention-grabber.
Not every oasis is full of water. Some are brimming with fire too. Fire pit tables allow you to kick back and relax in the great outdoors. Whether you’re there to get out of the house and read a book or hang out with a group of friends, you can find calm around a fire pit table.
They invite you to take a break from the hustle and bustle of your life and bask in their warmth.
Let there be light…said anyone stumbling around a garden party after sunset. If you’ve ever been to a dimly lit restaurant, it’s not uncommon to see a diner hold a candle up to the menu, so they could better see the text. Fire not only gives warmth but also light.
And when you’re planning to have a party or gathering in the evening, you’ll find that sufficient light can come in handy. It looks lovely: orange flames dancing beneath a starry sky.
Fire pit tables are not just a pretty centerpiece; they have utility too. You can cook your food on them: appetizers, main courses, desserts. With the right tools, such as a grill grate, pots, pans, tinfoil, and sticks, the sky’s the limit for what you can make: grilled cheese sandwiches, bacon, and eggs.
Gather your family around the fire pit table for a fun dining outdoors experience; have a romantic dinner date — nothing like dining at a fire pit table to fan the flames; invite friends over for a DIY dinner party. You can cook on a free pit table any time of year: at a summer soiree or a winter get-together.
Functional, attractive, and cost-efficient too? You might find that your fire pit table saves you from a hefty energy bill. Rather than binging on television shows and playing video games all day, you might be more inclined to sit outdoors, spending time with your friends and family around the fire. Now, that’s a recreational activity anyone can get behind or gather around.
Before purchasing a fire pit table, you’ll want to carefully consider which type of furniture would best suit your lifestyle and would ensure that you keep a safe and organized home. If you’re not planning on cleaning the table very often, you may want to choose a table that requires less maintenance: one that’s smaller in size or not metal if you don’t want it to rust. You’ll want to consider your safety as well.
Perhaps a gas fire pit table is a better option than one that uses wood. Or one that uses an electronic ignition system is better than one that uses a match-lit one.
You might want to consider, as well, the BTU/HR measurement. BTU stands for British thermal unit, showing how much heat a fire pit table can give off. This can be a critical factor in choosing the right fire pit table, as providing heat may be what you consider the table’s primary purpose. Generally, cooler climates require around 50,000 BTU/HR, while warmer temperatures need about 20,000 BTU/HR.
Firepit tables and fire pits can generally be categorized by shape, material and ignition type. But before exploring the different kinds of fire pit tables, it’s essential to know how a fire pit table, also referred to as a fire table, works.
Fire pit tables generally use a hidden propane tank connected to a burner instead of burning wood. To get the flame going, you’ll need to press a button on an electric starter and then turn the dial according to how intense you’d like the flame to be. Anyone who’s used a propane-powered grill will be familiar with the process used for a propane fire pit table. Fire tables can also be connected to a home natural gas line if you want to save money on propane.
The primary consideration is choosing the type of material that your fire pit table will be comprised of; see below for a brief description of the most popular options.
Concrete and cement tables add a contemporary flair to your outdoor space. Industrial materials are known for their binding properties and a polished, sleek look. What’s more, they require little maintenance and won’t fade with UV ray exposure.
Stainless steel, carbon steel, Corten steel. Durable and modern-looking, steel is a popular choice amongst fire table owners. Certain types of steel rust over time when exposed to outdoor elements.
Embrace these reddish-brown hues that offer a classic weathered look to your outside furniture. There’s much beauty to be found in a layer of patina.
Granite and tile are easy to maintain and resistant to stains, and oils are the gold standard for fire pit tables. The polished, speckled rock is a classic addition to any garden, and tile, made from clay or porcelain, comes in various colors and patterns to go with your decor.
Copper may be a solid option if you’re looking to go the rustic route. And solid it is! Copper is a highly pliable material that won’t break, no matter its thinness.
Remember that you often get what you pay for when choosing a table. In other words, if you pay little for a fire pit table, you may be getting one with flimsy materials. When considering materials, you should think about sturdiness. Stainless steel, for example, is a long-lasting and durable material for your fire pit table top.
Like any other table, fire pit tables come in many shapes and sizes. If you’re going for a more formal aesthetic, you might choose a rectangular fire pit table.
A cozier vibe? A round fire pit table might be more fitting. Your fire pit table can be low to the ground or high up like a countertop. Again, it’s essential to choose a design in line with the style you’re trying to achieve.
Other than material and shape, the next most important consideration when choosing a fire pit table will be the type of ignition that you select. Below, we discuss some of the different options:
The match lit system requires you to light the burner manually. Start by turning on the gas, then hold a match or candle to the fire pit to ignite the gas. You can control the height of the flame with a shut-off valve. Fire pit tables with this ignition system are generally more affordable and easier to maintain.
Spark ignition systems are often confused with electronic ignition systems because they produce a spark though it’s important to note that they’re not, in fact, electronic. So how do they work exactly? Spark ignitions have a battery-operated ignitor probe situated close to the burner.
Turn on the gas using the shut-off valve, then push the spark button. You can adjust the flame and turn the fire pit off with the shut-off valve. This system is easy to install and doesn’t require any matches.
The electronic ignition system is the easiest of the methods. It uses a switch or remote to ignite or turn off the burner. For this system, you’ll need an external battery supply or a main source of electricity. The gas flow will be cut off with an electronic model if the flame is accidentally extinguished.
The primary advantage of this type of system is safety. This is especially important for commercial spaces, such as bars, hotels, and restaurants.
Fire pit tables also use different types of fuel. Most use propane. However, some use natural gas — this is an excellent choice if you have a natural gas line to your home. Others use wood, which is a more precarious option that must be closely monitored.
While rugged in style and generally equipped with screens, Wood fire pit tables are not as common and require more maintenance.
A happy medium between wood and gas fuel: charcoal. Charcoal is affordable and available at most hardware stores. Bioethanol is an eco-friendly fuel and creates a flame with the look and feel of a gas fire.
Once you purchase a fire pit table, there are many accessories to choose from. You can get a glass lid covering the glass rocks and doubles as an extra surface to place dishes. Depending on your outdoor environment and the table material, you may also want to get a UV and weather-resistant cover.
A wind guard is a handy tool, too, allowing you to use the table even on the widest of days. Finally, you can get a natural gas conversion kit to help you save money,
Everyone’s needs in terms of a fire pit table are different. Here are a few things to consider before purchasing a fire feature from Audacia Home.
An example of these ignition systems is The Outdoor Plus Plug & Play Smart Weather Electronic Ignition which offers an easy installation of simply plugging the fire table into an electrical socket with the included flames sensor system that ensures a controlled and safe flame.
Q: Can I put a fire table on my wooden deck?
A: Gas fire tables including natural gas and liquid propane, are generally safe to put on your deck because unlike wood burning fire tables, they do not give off sparks or embers. To be safe, non combustible decks are highly recommended, as well as checking with manufacturer requirements and your city’s code prior to putting the fire table on your deck.
Q: What is the Difference Between a Propane Fire Table and Natural Gas Fire Table?
A: There are a few considerations to keep in mind when deciding between propane and natural gas for your fire table. To start, propane comes in tanks that get attached to the fire table meaning there is greater portability. Natural gas on the other hand is fed to the fire pit by a gas line that is attached to your home so there will be less flexibility in moving it. Another consideration is cost, natural gas is significantly cheaper than the cost of propane. A final consideration is the type of flame you are looking for. With natural gas, it burns cleaner meaning less potential for soot but also it does not burn as bright, compared to propane which produces a bright flame that can even be seen when the sun is shining.
Q: Can I cook food on my gas fire table?
A: It is not advised to cook food on these types of fire tables because food ould potentially drop down into the table and cause damage to some interior parts. However, roasting marshmallows is definitely still common and okay!
Q: Where to buy a fire table?
A: You may think that going to a big brick and mortar store may be the best option to buy a fire pit or fire table, however, there are some drawbacks. With these larger retailers, there may be less flexibility in finding a fire table in your price range because of the fixed prices many of these stores must stick to. Also, the physical moving of the fire table from the store, into your vehicle, then from your vehicle to wherever you want to set it up can be grueling. By buying online, specifically from Audacia Home, you can simply place your order from the comfort of your home and it will be delivered right to your door free of charge!
