Fire Pit Tables
Fire pit tables are outdoor tables with a bowl in the middle to hold a propane or gas flame, often with glass stones covering the burner to add elegance to the table. Fire pit tables are more for decorative purposes, then to generate heat. However, the benefits of using these tables are that they are portable and can be moved around your outdoor space easily. You can have flickering flames with the simple push of a button. These are great for gathering with family and friends.
Fire Pit Bowls
Fire pit bowls are typically larger fire pit designs that are portable, bowl shaped pots that can hold a real wood fire or a gas or propane burner. Some fire pit designs include deep steel bowls with cut-out shapes, or shallow bowls on stands with intricate details. Fire pit bowls come in a variety of shapes and sizes, making this a great option for those on a strict budget.
Fire Pit Columns
Fire pit columns are more decorative than anything else. They are placed outside in corners as accessories or can be part of a stone fence or divider. Fire pit columns are typically made of stone, cement, or slate and come in various heights. These columns are usually round or square shaped, with a small fire bowl at the top. These are not used as a centerpiece but are used most often to enhance an outdoor living space with existing fire pit designs that include a larger fire pit focal point. So, whatever your needs there are plenty of fire pit designs that are sure to please.
