Under the category of multipurpose outdoor furniture is the propane fire pit table. Both a dining table and a source of heat for your luxury outdoor living space, this is one item that is sure to become the most popular place to hang out. Here is everything you need to know about buying and installing a propane fire pit table.
Types of Fire Pit Tables
There is a wide variety of fire pit tables on the market today. You can easily select from various table shapes and sizes, heights (dining, counter or pub) and styles.
There are options for a propane fire pit portable style – a great selection if you are an avid RVer or camper. There are also propane fire pit camping models that are small enough to throw into the back of your vehicle for a quick trip to the great outdoors. A propane fire pit insert is another option if you already have a wood burning fire pit that you wish to upgrade to a cleaner fuel source.
Where to Start
If you are an experienced DIYer, you may want to consider buying a propane fire pit kit, which includes all the elements necessary to make your own piece of furniture. Some consumers even put a propane fire pit on top of an existing outdoor table, although there are some safety precautions to take. Since a propane fire pit does not use wood for fuel, there are no flying embers or sparks to potentially cause a fire but the table itself may be unsteady. When in doubt, it is better to go with a propane fire pit kit.
For the rest of us, a fire pit table that comes ready to unpack and install in the backyard is a better option. Most every propane fire pit table we offer at Hauser’s Patio comes pre-assembled with little to do for installation other than hooking it up to a propane gas source. Generally, this is a 20lb tank, but your backyard aesthetics will be enhanced if you can connect it to an existing outdoor gas line.
What Can You Do With a Propane Fire Pit Table?
A propane fire pit table is an excellent addition to a backyard because it is so versatile and useful. It provides a great place to gather family and friends for a casual meal. If your group loves s’mores, they are sure to love roasting their marshmallows right there in the middle of the dining table. It can also accommodate kabobs and hot dogs – a wonderful way to keep the kids entertained while waiting to eat.
But even if you do not wish to host a meal, a propane fire pit supplies all the warmth and ambience of a regular firepit. The convenience of propane means you merely have to flip a switch in order to instantly enjoy mesmerizing flames on a crisp, cool evening.
There are plenty of accessories, too, if you wish to get maximum usage out of your propane fire pit table. Things like a weatherproof cover, glass surround, kabob or marshmallow skewers, grill pans and various types of fire media are all great additions to your propane fire pit table.
