Modern fire pits today come in great, safe, table top varieties – here are some of the best fire pit features offered by these convenient and attractive appliances that you should know about, who knows, maybe they will make your next investment into the comfort and attractive design of your home.
What Are, In Fact, Table Top Fire Pits?
Table top fire pits are, as the name suggests, small fire pits that can be installed in indoor settings. They are usually gas operated, running either on natural gas or on propane and they come with settings that make it possible to adjust the height of the flames for safe burning. Many of these table top pits are mobile appliances that can be safely and easily moved to the desired location.
Great For Being Used Indoors as Well as Outdoors
The relatively smaller size, the mobility and the safe operation makes these units suitable for indoor as well as outdoor settings. If you are planning to entertain your guests in your dining room, you can easily place your small fire pit in the middle of the table, but if you want to enjoy the great weather outside, you can set up your appliance on your veranda or your patio. Many table top pits come with covers or lids that transform them into regular coffee tables when they are not in use.
An Efficient Mood Enhancer
A table top fire pit is just as great for creating a wonderful, cozy and friendly environment and atmosphere as a large outdoor fire pit. Most designs allow for some space around the fire chamber where you can put snacks and glasses with beverages, allowing the fire pit to become the focal point of your entertainment area. If you take a minute to imagine you, your family and your guests sitting in your friendly armchairs and on your sofa, all placed in a comfortable circle around your table top fire pit, you will surely picture people laughing and having an extraordinary time, their mood being positively influenced by the cozy fire burning in the middle of the table.
The fact that these table top fire pits come with smaller fire chambers than the fire pits that are designed for being used exclusively outside will also mean that these units offer enhanced safety features. The fire burning in these appliances is usually not as hot as the fires generated by outdoor units, which also means that the exterior parts of the appliance do not get as hot as in the case of outdoor units. Table top units usually come with advanced security features as well as the option to adjust the intensity of the flames, therefore table top fire pits are considered to be among the safest of all fire pits.
