Handcrafted fire pits and fire bowls add warmth and atmosphere to beautiful backyard living spaces. There’s nothing quite like sitting around the enchanting glow of a crackling fire while relaxing or visiting with family or friends. As well, they provide a stunning fire feature when entertaining outdoors, there are some utterly beautiful fire pits out there available, you may want to look into some fine examples of copper fire pits.
There are several types for fire pits and bowls in a myriad of materials and styles to choose from. Below we offer the information you need to choose the perfect pit or bowl for your outdoor space.
Fire Pits & Bowls
The most popular types of backyard fire features, the fire pit and bowl, offer a mobile, more flexible and affordable alternative, to the traditional ‘fixed’ outdoor fireplace. Handcrafted iron versions are highly desirable due to their long lasting durability and low maintenance qualities. And aesthetically, the more decoratively ornate styles offer added character and beauty. Both pits and bowls come in a myriad of designs, sizes and finishes to enhance any outdoor décor and activity. If you’re not sure which type of fire pit to buy, a portable propane fire pit creates a cosy campfire experience so if this sounds like something you’d enjoy, check them out!
Placed in the backyard and surrounded by Stamped Concrete for aesthetic reasons and with comfortable seating, they offer a more relaxed and casual way to enjoy a roaring wood fire in the spring or winter. Due to safety and lower heat produced, a gas/propane fueled pit or bowl is recommended over a wood burning one for covered patio and pergola areas as well as smaller urban or city terraces.
Fire Pit Tables
An alternative to the more portable fire pit or fire bowl is the fire pit table. Available in several table types, shapes, sizes and materials, they generally are configured as a dining table or coffee/cocktail option.
With both versions, the fire pit is set within the middle of the table and is usually fueled by gas/propane to avoid the intense heat and messy ash and soot of a burning wood. Table materials run the gamut from heavy duty aluminum and iron bases with table tops in the same material or differing ones of concrete, natural stone or decorative tile. Many fire pit tables are easily converted into a grill by using manufacturer offered cooking accessories.
The dining table and bar table styles allow for enjoyment of a meal or cocktails set around a glowing fire, providing both ambiance and warmth. As with traditional dining tables you’ll find round, square and rectangular shapes in an array of common sizes to fit any outdoor area and purpose.
Just as with its traditional counterpart, the fire pit coffee or cocktail table provides space to rest drinks or plates and can be set in the middle of a conversational seating arrangement– but with the added beauty of a fire feature. They also come in round, square and rectangular shapes and in sizes common to regular coffee and cocktail tables.
These functional masterpieces will bring you a lifetime of enjoyment and beauty in all your outdoor living areas, from backyard patio to city terrace. See our charming array of fire pits, fire bowls and fire pit tables here.
