Outdoor Living With Kitchens, Fireplaces, and Fire Pits

You want to optimize your outdoor living space before summer picks up. By starting now, you can choose a new kitchen upgrade, grill, fireplace, fire table, or fire pit. You can design and choose the best space for you just in time for summer!

Outdoor Kitchens

Your outdoor space can include a fabulous kitchen with countertops, grills, ovens, sinks, refrigerators, and more. If your space is large enough, you can have it all! Make sure you include the professionals in your plan so that the measurements, products, and construction fit together perfectly. What your family uses the space for, the size of groups that you may have, and what you might like to cook will all affect your plans. We can help! There are fireplace experts at Beach Stove and Fireplace who also specialize in outdoor kitchens.

Outdoor Fires

Depending on the size of space you might have, you may be able to choose a standard fire pit, an ornate fireplace, or a functional fire table. As you plan your space, you may see that one style works better than others. If you don’t have space for a table, you can choose a fire table that burns with beautiful and warm flames while also working as a table for dinners or drinks. Adversely, fire pits are smaller and can fit in a cramped space safely. Gas fire pits have convenient on/off features, temperature and flame adjustment, and cool quickly after shut-off. Wood fire pits are smaller, burn hotter, and are often the favorite for fall and winter. They are messy, require more work, are harder to light, and are more dangerous than their gas counterparts.

If your outdoor kitchen has a wall, you can install a gas fireplace that can add both style and warmth. We carry gas fireplaces that feature realistic ceramic logs, beautiful flames, and many even have glass that helps the fire produce ambient heat great for fall and winter.

We Have the Perfect Backyard Fire Table for Your Next Gathering!

Even though it is still spring, much of our service area is experiencing summer weather. If you’re ready to barbecue, host gatherings, and celebrate summer holidays in your backyard, we have the perfect fire table to complete your outdoor dream space.

Fire Table Versus Fire Pit

Just as it sounds, a fire table can be used as a table. In fact, it combines the two most central components of a gathering–the focal point of the fire and food and drink. Choosing to install a fire table in your outdoor space saves room and offers convenience that a separate table and fire pit doesn’t. Additionally, fire tables add a level of safety that isn’t present in standard fire pits. If you commonly host gatherings with small children, the good time may be hampered by stress. A fire table puts the fire out of reach of children, but allows seated children to enjoy the convenient reach of the fire for roasting marshmallows or hot dogs.

Fire Tables are Convenient

When you choose a gas fire table for your outdoor space, you also get unrivaled convenience and low maintenance. You don’t have to worry about lighting kindling and firewood, or bother with covering a fire pit for the weather. When you purchase your fire table, you will get a user guide that is easy to follow and a product that is easy to maintain and use. Gas fuel allows you to turn your fire on and off with the touch of a button while easily controlling the heat, light, and size of your fire.

Fire Tables are Beautiful

Fire tables add an ambiance to the yardscape that you cannot achieve with other products. You may choose to fit your fire into your furniture by installing a linear fire table, or you may make it your focal point as a coffee table combined with a fire pit. The fire portions of the tables are attractive in look whether the fire is burning or not, and the table portion of the fire table is beautiful, with decorative ceramic tile top, wood, glass, or more.

Start Now!

You can start planning your outdoor space now by calling Beach Stove and Fireplace. We offer the best and safest products on the market, and pride ourselves on beauty and durability. If you’d like to see a fire table in action, you can stop by our showroom at 381 Old Riverhead Rd #8 in Westhampton Beach, New York. Don’t wait another minute. You can have your new fire table before Memorial Day if you call today.

It’s Time to Think About a Fire Pit

During this transition between the hot summer months and the cooler fall, it is a perfect time to think about adding a fire pit to your backyard paradise. Sitting outside with a drink and the smell of burning wood wafting into your nostrils is a great scene and an even better event space for entertaining others. As people add more and more accessories to their backyards, installing an attractive, crackling fire pit is just what the doctor ordered.

What to consider when adding a fire pit:

Like any new fixture in your home, it is important to consider all the choices before settling on the final product. What do you want out of your fire pit? Having simply a nice ambiance can result in a different product than one created for serious heat. Your budget can be another big factor. Starting at around $100, the choice to install it yourself, or have one that simply sits on the ground, will quickly filter out many of the competitors. If your budget is more in the range of several thousand dollars to more than $10,000, there are many more options to choose from, especially if you want a custom fire pit that matches the décor of your house and outside entertaining space. Deciding if you want your fire pit to be in your yard permanently or temporarily can also alter your options. If you can see the fire pit being a permanent fixture as the season changes, having one custom built with the proper materials and stones is essential. Having a choice in the metal, either copper, stainless steel, or cast iron, that forms the bowl of your fire pit can add or detract from the ambiance you are trying to achieve.

What to be careful of:

Within your own backyard, it is easy to lose sight of the dangers that are associated with fire, especially when left unattended. Keep your fire pit centrally located, in full view of yourself and your guests. Clearing away any brush or tree limbs that are anywhere near the pit will limit the chances for something to catch on fire. Before lighting the fire, make sure the wood you’re using doesn’t throw sparks excessively (common among pine or cedar wood), and take note of the wind patterns. Using soft wood or lighting a fire when it is excessively windy is a safety hazard for both you and your guests. Besides designing the right ambiance, ensuring that your fire pit follows all the local laws and community rules is absolutely necessary. Many have regulations limiting how close your fire pit can be from other homes, and some may even require a permit or site inspection to make sure there is no chance of your fire pit catching something like a fence or tree branch on fire.

There is no time like the present to consider adding a fire pit to your outdoor setting! Give us a call at 631-998-0780 with questions about your fire pit options.

Planning Your Gas Fire Pit

When you work with a professional, you can be sure your fireplace is built in a location that is beautiful, as well as safe. Your professional fireplace technician and contractor will find a place that is free from overhanging shrubbery and trees, as well as any pergolas or other hanging outdoor furniture. By taking careful planning measures before your gas fire pit is installed you will avoid costly modifications down the line.

Installing

Having a professional contractor like those at Beach Stove And Fireplace will make sure everything is in accordance with fire laws in your area. For example, in West Hampton Beach, NY we only sell electronic ignition and push button ignition because match lit fire pits are not allowed in our area. You also want to make sure you get the correct size burner for your fire pit and how you intend on using your pit (cooking, recreational, decorative). We are familiar with the local fire codes in our area and can help you install a fire pit that is both beautiful, as well as in alignment with fire codes. A qualified technician will sell you the products right for your area, for your personal needs and for your budget.

Maintenance

Another benefit to hiring a professional to plan and install your custom fire pit is that you will be able to call them should any maintenance needs arise. When you install a fire pit in your backyard you must make sure it is kept clean and that the stones are all sealed and intact. Additional repairs may be required, especially if you use your fire pit on a regular basis. Having a professional fire pit technician to call can help maintain your fireplace as well as answer any questions that come up.

Additional Fire Pit Tips:

  • Be sure to extinguish fire completely after every use.
  • Cover your fire pit to protect the stones and keep it dry.

Fire Up the Fire Pit

After the origin of controlled fire, you have to believe that the creation of fire pits followed shortly thereafter.  And now here you sit with an empty backyard, with the exception of a grill and/or some outdoor furniture on your patio.  Now is as good a time as any to add that fire pit you’ve been thinking about since last summer.  Fire pits have become increasingly popular in recent years—they’re the #1 requested backyard design feature according to the American Society of Landscape Architects—and the trend shows no signs of losing steam.

Setting the Tone in your Backyard

Make sure all family members know basic fire safety, particularly children.

Make sure all family members know basic fire safety, particularly children.

Keep in mind that fire pits don’t take up a lot of space, and combined with their functionality, can be featured almost anywhere in unlimited shapes and sizes.  The warmth and joy that radiates from the open fire can make parties, intimate gatherings, and simple marshmallow roasts the most sought-after and enjoyable activities of the spring, summer, and autumn months.  However, fire pits are wrought with dangers, and to ensure everyone’s safety, there are important safety tips every fire pit owner should know.

Fire Pit Safety Basics

As with any situation involving fire, there are many safety measures homeowners can take to ensure that you and yours remain safe.  The following safety protocols are a good jumping off point:

  • Always keep a fire extinguisher handy.
  • Keep a first aid kit on hand for any accidental burns.
  • Don’t light a fire in windy conditions.  One stray spark can cause a large fire in no time.
  • Don’t light a fire if a fire warning has been issued in your area.
  • Don’t allow children to light or play near the fire.  Closely supervise children at all times around your fire pit.
  • Always use seasoned wood and kindling to light your fire.  Avoid using soft woods (e.g., pine or cedar) because they can pop and throw sparks.  Do NOT use accelerants (e.g., gasoline, lighter fluid, or alcohol) or trash to light a fire.
  • Put out the fire completely before leaving the pit unattended or before going inside for the evening.  Even the smallest fire can become a large fire quickly; as such, embers should be completely extinguished.
  • Safely dispose of all ashes.

Fire Pit Positioning

You should set up your fire pit in an area that is well away (at least 10 feet) from adjacent walls or building overhangs.  You’ll also want to make sure the area is free of combustible materials and on a noncombustible surface.  Move all outdoor furniture at least 3 feet away from the fire pit as well.  Keep an eye out for low-hanging branches and drooping power lines overhead, and place the pit well clear of them.

Fire pits are very popular, but you need to keep fire pit safety in mind when using one.  The tips listed in this blog will help you get the most out of your enjoyable outdoor addition and reduce the likelihood of injury and/or damage to your property.  The professionals at Beach Stove & Fireplace are ever ready to meet and exceed your expectations.  Give us a call (631-998-0780) or contact us via our website to see how we can assist you with all of your outdoor living projects.
