Picking out new furniture to have set up on your patio can require a lot of thought to ensure that you get great results and that the patio seating will be ideal for your needs. If you’re feeling unsure about what furniture will be safest to use when you have a fire pit outside, it’s best to consider what kind of furniture will be the best for preventing fire hazards and get you the kind of results that you can enjoy.

Look for Flame Resistant Furniture

One of the most important things to look for when narrowing down your choice of patio furniture is flame resistant fabrics. It can be tempting to choose furniture based on looks or price, but you also need to make safety a top concern. Avoiding patio furniture that can catch fire easily is a wise choice, along with looking into whether any furniture has been treated with flame retardant.

Choose Seating That’s the Right Size

Considering how many people in your home will be using the patio furniture is so important since the seating options can vary considerably. While some seating can seem like a good fit based on the size of your patio, you may find that it doesn’t have enough room to accommodate your family and friends when you’re having a gathering. Choosing furniture that’s the right size, including the fire pit is important so that you can maintain safety.

Avoid Placing Anything Too Close

When picking up new furniture, you need to make sure that nothing will be located too close to the fire pit. To prevent fires, it’s important that none of the furniture is directly next to the fire since embers can fly off and potentially cause a fire.
