Whether you decide to buy a pre-built model or work with a craftsman to have one made right for your space, there are a plethora of alternatives available to you when it comes to getting a fire pit. Either way, it can be difficult to get started. Check out the following suggestions and factors, which include advice from five experienced architects and designers, to help guide your decision. With this knowledge, you should be able to work with a designer to select the ideal fire pit that suits your preferences, requirements, spending capacity, and location.
1. Know what a Fire Pit Table is?
For a while, it looked like the only option was a tabletop barbeque, which is a miniature grill that can be placed on a table. They offer powerful heat for roasting s'mores and frying hamburgers. before the invention of modern patio furniture and fireside tables. An environment with a safe but genuine flame creates a patio table with a fire pit in the middle. Adding a fireplace table makes patios more luxurious and useful. As the weather begins to cool, you can rest assured that you and your family can still enjoy the outdoors.
2. Make sure you want to buy portable or permanent
Whether you want your fireplace table to be permanent or portable is another thing to think about before you start shopping. Permanent fire pits, such as Outer's table and grill, are often more durable, produce a larger flame, and seat more people. These designs are ideal for spacious patios and decks as well as large backyards. Portable fire pits, on the other hand, usually hold two to four people at a time and are smaller, lighter, and produce a smaller flame. These designs are ideal for balconies with limited space or for people who enjoy the freedom to move their fire pit around every few days.
3. Focus on the style
Your intended purpose will have a significant impact on the type of fire pit you choose. Naturally, you want it to be able to sustain a flame, but do you also want to use it as a grill or fire pit for cooking? Do you intend to welcome a lot of guests? Or will it often just be your family? If the former, focus your attention on a larger hearth to accommodate everyone. In the latter case, focus on a more compact model to avoid feeling distracted.
Choosing a style (and purpose) for your fireplace table will help you narrow down your search and find the model that's perfect for you. Modern Rattan's new fire pit is the best of both worlds. You can use it as the focal point of your deck, patio, or backyard, and when it's time to cook, place the Hibachi grill over the flame.
4. Material of Fire Pit Tables
High-quality materials are used in the construction of fireplace tables, which ensure a safe open flame. Listed below are typical building supplies, each with its distinctive features:
Rattan (mainly synthetic): A rattan fireplace table gives terraces a very natural look when using artificial fibers. The material itself is easy to maintain and waterproof.
Stainless steel: This is a premium option that is often very expensive. For modern homes, the steel material creates an elegant, futuristic look.
Aluminum: This kind of material is often used because it is comfortable, light, and durable. We see a lot of beautiful aluminum garden furniture as it works well with contemporary outdoor furniture and garden settings.
5. Usage of Fire Pit tables
You will find that some fire pit tables can practically be used as a barbecue grill if you learn how to use one. Although a whole BBQ can also be cooked over some roasted marshmallows, this may be the preferred method. If you have a table where you can put dishes and delicious sauces, you can cook hotdogs, bacon, or even kebabs if you have a grill. In addition to meat, you can cook corn on the cob.
6. Cost of Fire Pit Tables
Prices vary because there are many types and brands to choose from. Are you considering a high-end model or an entry-level one? Depending on the brand, fireside tables cost between £1,500 and £2,500 in the UK. If you want rattan outdoor furniture with a built-in fire pit on the table, you should budget more money. Browse our wide range of rattan fire pit sets priced between £1,800.00 and £2,250.00.
7. Choose between the type of fuel
Choose between wood, propane, or natural gas as your fuel source. Although wood-burning fireplaces make the traditional crackling sound of a fire, they are increasingly scrutinized due to concerns about air pollution. Propane and natural gas provide the benefits of a smoke-free environment, easier cleaning, and faster on and off.
