To maximize enjoyment of your outdoor living space, you must create a comfortable, attractive environment while also moderating the elements. If your patio space feels incomplete or is not as practical as you would like, the perfect answer may be to add a gorgeous gas fire pit to the setup. Before exploring the beautiful designs available, focus on these incredible benefits that are yours to enjoy once your new gas-powered fire pit is in place.
Adds Style to Your Outdoor Living Space
Whether you invest in a traditional gas-powered fire pit or a modern fire pit table, the impact on your space’s style is tremendous. For example, gas-powered fire pit tables are available at pub-height as well as in heights akin to dining tables and coffee tables. The range of styles is tremendous with wood, stone and other finishes. In addition, accessories like tumbled lava rock, a glass guard, realistic-looking logs and even colored glass crystals provide incredible versatility to create the ideal look for your space.
The warm glow of a flickering flame adds charm and personality to your space. While artificial light from bulbs can provide functional lighting, the natural illumination from a fire pit transforms the space with gorgeous results. Whether your goal is to create a relaxed and peaceful ambiance or a sophisticated atmosphere, the additional element of fire brings your vision to life.
Extends Your Outdoor Season
When the flame of a gas-powered fire pit is controlled at a low setting, the impact is a flame that produces minimal heat and sets the mood. With a larger flame, the fire pit can generate substantial heat. This heat may help you to manage the environment on chillier days and nights. By having this functional heat source near your patio dining table or included in your outdoor living suite, you and your guests can remain comfortable when the temperature drops.
While some gas fire pits are designed simply to improve aesthetics and provide heat, others have a multi-functional design. When the flame is not in use, a cover can be placed over the burner to create a tabletop. This dual-purpose design is ideal on smaller patios where space is limited.
Turns On and Off Easily
If you perceive igniting a gas fire pit as a hassle, you may be pleasantly surprised to learn that most designs available today have a push-button ignition. Regardless of how windy it is or even if it recently rained, the fire pit can light up in seconds. Modern gas fire pits also have simplified controls to adjust the intensity of the heat and flame, and they turn off just as conveniently. Easy usage makes this a practical feature to use when entertaining.
Holds Up Well to the Elements
A gas-powered fire pit or a fire pit table is a true investment that you can expect to enjoy for many years. Unlike some outdoor furnishings that are designed to be covered in inclement weather or stored inside throughout the winter, a fire pit is a year-round feature. Many materials used in the manufacturing of stylish gas fire pits hold up well in extreme temperature situations. They also will not be damaged by UV rays, snow and ice or other elements.
May Be Safer Than Other Options
A gas fire pit is one of the safer ways to add the element of fire to your outdoor living area. While you enjoy the heat and charm of an open flame, sparks and flying embers are not concerns as they may be with a wood-burning fire. Because of this, they can safely be used next to patio furniture and other features that must usually be kept far away from a natural-burning fire. You can look for the UIL rating for additional confidence in the safety of your new gas-powered fire pit.
