Square and round firepit tables have similar heat reach in their environment. However, they significantly differ in shape and design. Sizes might also be slightly different due to the shape difference.
Unlike square fire pits, round firepit tables are more intimate. They are ideal for solo use. While square fire pits can easily be fitted in a 4-seater sofa set, a two-seater and two one-seaters facing opposite each other, round firepit tables are ideal for couple. This is where the intimacy aspect lies. You can either position them on two one-seater sofas facing each other or sitting parallel to each other (acting like a side table).
Their shape makes up for enough leg room, makes them flexible to move around, and can fit in any corner on your patio. This makes it easy to fit them into any outdoor sofa set arrangement or furniture design. They also come in different designs, short or long, and of different diameters. You will buy one depending on where you'd want to position them in your outdoor patio design.
