Outdoor and Patio Furniture – Fire Pit Tables, Recliners, And More

We all spend hours, even days and weeks deciding and picking out the right furniture for our homes. But we often miss out on giving attention to and decorating the outside of our homes, which is our gardens, backyards, and patios.

Now, these areas require special attention as not all sorts of furniture would fit or last well given they are completely exposed to the outside weather. From special materials that are waterproof and sun proof to structures that ensure they would not rust, a lot needs to be thought of before jumping in to buy outside and patio furniture.

Fire Pit Tables

Enjoying a good old fire inside is great, especially in cold weather. But once we step outside onto the patio or the garden our hands freeze up in no time. Fire pit tables are a common solution to this problem, and with the various designs on the market, they have become more than simply a necessity, but an accessory as well.

They provide a little space for people to gather around, making a great sitting area. They provide heat of course, and their decorations make them a beautiful ornament that any garden would be brought to life with.

Most have hidden control panels where there are electronic ignitions to kick start it. Most come with tile mantles, so there are no damages done to the outside if you decide to increase the degree of your fires.

Being square in shape, they can be easily tucked away in corners. Having a small fireplace of your own in the backyard is one of the coolest ways to make your space look chicer and put together.

In general, they are easy to put together, and much less maintenance than an actual fireplace. They also do not get too hot, but just enough so people can sit surrounding it. While some come with plastic covers, it is always better to opt for anything other than plastic since you will be putting it directly over a hot space.

Round Fire Pit Tables

Round Fire Pit Tables have a certain flair to them, some come with chat tables on the side, which makes it easier to sit around it. They can be directly bought, or customized. There are models in steel, while others come in stone.

In most the heat is adjustable, so one can change it to their requirements based on the weather or atmosphere. Gas tanks have to be bought separately for these, and the measurements need to be correct so they do not end up being too big and not fitting.

The rocks used can also be customized. Although most do not come with glass rocks, they can be added on later for a better outlook. As for the cover, there are many kinds, and one should always opt for tile, and not plastic since it will very easily melt and might become the source of a hazard.

Cast Aluminum Dining Tables

Having a table outside can be really hard to maintain, but when they are made of cast aluminum, you know nothing can beat it. Whatever the weather, sun or rain, it will not affect the furniture. They will not be tarnished, scratched, or damaged, and they will not get stained or rusted either. All of these make them just the right furniture to put on your patio or backyard.

These cast aluminum dining tables mostly consist of a steel hardware with cast aluminum construction. They have intricate designs all over which makes them a pretty sight to the eyes, and also have umbrella holes so you can put one up while lunch.

Fancier ones even come with highlights applied by hand, in colors, other metal ornaments, but there are plain black ones as well. These do not only serve the purpose of a table but are also considered a garden décor piece.


For times you want to take in the sun, or simply enjoy some leisure in the backyard, recliners beat all sorts of chairs for the purpose. Being very lightweight and adjustable, they are very easy to move around and can be shifted from the patio to the deck or the garden in minutes without hassle since they fold up so easily.
