Staying Warm and Cozy All Year Long: A Buyer's Guide to the Different Types of Fire Pits

One of the best ways to spruce up your outdoor space in a pinch is by installing an attractive fire pit. But with so many different types available, how do you know which one will work for what you're looking for? Read on as we break down popular styles and offer our opinion on each!

Propane and Gas Fire Pits

Propane fire pits are the perfect option for those who don't want to spend their time collecting wood, or setting up and maintaining a charcoal-filled pit. These trendy fire pits do not need you to worry about either separate propane tanks or natural gas pipes--just connect your top area of the pit directly with an ignited flame!

A gas fire pit is similar except that it usually requires a direct line of natural gas that attaches to the unit. These fire pits are sometimes called "direct plumbing" fire pits since the fuel source comes directly from a pipe or line, similar to a water line.

If you want to decorate your outdoor environment during the winter, a gas or propane fire pit is highly recommended. With these pits, it's easy to add glass logs and colorful ceramic balls as decoration pieces that are built for high heat! You can even customize how hot each piece gets so that all of the colors look their best without melting into one another.

The only downside is needing refills with a gas-based system every now and again because natural supply comes right from the source while gasoline needs some help reaching an open flame more easily when lit in its reservoir tank.

These types of fire pits are the most popular choice for many homeowners. However, the specially designed burner system is more complex than a wood-burning fire pit, and it can cost you more upfront if you choose to have a new gas line installed.

Fire Pit Tables

A fire pit table combines the convenience of outdoor furniture with a beautiful fire feature. These products are typically higher off the ground than a standard fire pit since they are used as functional tables in addition to the beautiful fire they produce.

You can place some chairs around your fire pit table and enjoy a delicious meal outside while you gather with friends and conversate. These fire pits include a sturdy tabletop that can be made of anything from metal and stone to composite materials and more.

Some people like to enjoy their time outdoors by relaxing near a fire pit table. Fire pits have many shapes and sizes, but there are three main types that you will most likely find in stores: circular tables with tall sides for more intimate gatherings; wide rectangular ones where friends can gather around the edges; smaller rounder versions which allow two people to get cozy close together next to each other while still having enough room left over for some drinks!

All these different styles offer unique benefits depending on what kind of person you want your company outside with you this summer.

A fire pit table adds visual interest and functionality to your backyard. They're also a great place to gather around for drinks in the evening or to spend time together during the chillier months of the year.

Fire Bowls

Fire bowls can be a perfect alternative to classic fire pits. These unusual bowl-shaped fire pits appear low and close the ground so that your eyes stay fixed on the blaze, not the vessel itself.

However, just because they have one specific purpose doesn't mean it cannot also provide innovative styles for those who want something different with their backyard fireside experience as well!

Many fire bowls use natural gas or propane to work and are normally made of aluminum. However, modern materials such as cast concrete are becoming another common option that brings structure and visual appeal to your patio or backyard.

Unless your fire bowl is directly attached to a natural gas line, it's a portable way to enjoy a fire. These smaller units are easy to move anywhere, and you can turn them on with a quick flip of the pilot light switch.

You can enjoy fire bowls on a deck unless they are wood-burning. Propane offers a cleaner burn, and you won't need to worry about burning embers hitting your deck or home and potentially causing a fire.

Fire bowls and fire pits are stunning additions to any outdoor space. The flame is captivating, but it's also a great way to create ambiance with some decorative bottles or other materials such as lava rocks for your theme!

Find the Perfect Fire Pit

Who doesn't want to lay back and enjoy the warmth of a fire while they relax outdoors? There are many creative ways you can do so with propane, natural gas, or bio-ethanol fuel.

The best part is that these outdoor accessories will make your time spent outside even more fun than it already was!
