Are you wanting to upgrade your outdoor living space with tiki torches?
According to survey results, outdoor living is at the top of homeowners' wish lists right now.
When enjoying your outdoor space after dark, especially while entertaining, the right lighting is a must.
Tiki torches tick (pardon the pun) all the boxes. Not only do they provide sufficient light to illuminate pathways, decks, pools, and patios, but they create resort-style ambiance.
The tiki torches of yesterday have been significantly improved in both materials and features: meet the fire torch. So before you go and buy the first torch you see, there are key factors to consider.
Keep reading to learn 3 tips for choosing the right tiki-style fire torch.
Tip #1: Look for Materials that Ensure Longevity

When it comes to longevity, the type of material you choose matters. A lot.
All fire torches sold by Fountainful are USA made from high grade 304 stainless steel by skilled craftsmen at The Outdoor Plus. This makes the torches incredibly durable and resistant to rust, corrosion, sun damage, and temperature swings.
Most traditional tiki torches are made from thatched wood or bamboo. This is fine if you want to temporarily accessorize your garden for a barbeque — and if you don't mind taking down the torches once the party's over.
If you leave these traditional tiki torches outdoors full time, they'll start looking shabby within a couple of seasons.
Here in Texas, where Fountainful is based, we receive more sunlight than 47 of the 50 U.S. states. Our abundance of sunshine is great for outdoor entertaining, but not so great for lightweight garden accessories like thatched tiki torches.
For a fire torch that can be a lasting, permanent feature in your yard, go for a modern option like stainless steel.
Tip #2: Make Sure You Get a Complete Kit

If you’re already convinced that a heavy-duty stainless steel fire torch is for you, make sure it comes with everything you need to set it up before you buy.
There's nothing more irritating than receiving a product you can't install and enjoy until you've tracked down the right collection of fittings to construct it.
Every fire torch ordered from Fountainful is a complete kit, meaning it includes everything required for immediate installation including multiple anchoring posts, flex hoses, and a regulator when liquid propane is selected as the fuel type when ordering. Fire torches can also be ordered for natural gas hookup.
Tip #3: Think About Flame Level Adjustability
Another hallmark of a well made, new-era tiki torch is adjustable flame levels.
Being able to adjust the flame on your natural gas or liquid propane fire torch can save on fuel and give you flexibility over the level of light produced.
Thanks to the innovative team at The Outdoor Plus, our fire torches have built-in valves that let you adjust the flame level to your exact preference.
