A fire pit table can increase your property's value; best of all, it can be used all year round, any time of day. Chilly morning? Start the fire and warm up with a cup of coffee or tea. Cool evening? Light the flame and relax with a loved one and a glass of wine.

What To Look For In a Fire Pit Table

When you are ready to purchase a fire pit table, you want to invest in a quality one. There is no doubt there are cheap ones out there, but you will get what you pay for and most likely regret it as you’re replacing it much sooner than planned.


Some key elements you want to look for in a fire pit table include:


  • Durable materials to withstand the elements.

  • 12-14 inch height to keep little ones safe, feel warm, and enjoy the flame from a patio chair.

  • Use of a clean-burning fuel like liquid propane.

  • Protective lid for when the fire pit table is not in use.

  • Easy start, easy access to the fuel tank, and easy flame control.


As always, fire pit safety is of the utmost importance. Always have an extinguisher nearby in case of emergency, whether it be a dry chemical extinguisher, a bucket of water, or a hose. Consider adding a windshield around the fire area to keep little hands from getting near the flames.


Before installing your fire pit table, ensure you understand your current municipal regulations concerning fire pits and fire pit tables.
