If you prefer outdoor flame lights involving actual fire, you might be thinking of traditional Tiki designs. However, cheap bamboo options might not always be the most durable.

So, if you were hoping for a reliable purchase guaranteed to last you for years, we recommend weather-resistant metal torches treated against corrosion, wear, and the actual elements.

Buying Guide

Most outdoor fire lamps are designed to simulate an intense and attractive flame effect rather than actually give off any heat. Many models contain LED semiconductor devices that give off a realistic fire simulation.

Nearly all outdoor fire lamps have a waterproof and weather-resistant casing, and the premium-quality models are highly cost-effective and energy-efficient. You should get a fire lamp with a rechargeable battery, and multiple flame presets so that you can change between modes to suit the ambiance on your outdoor patio.

If you’re looking for a weatherproof unit that gives off both light and heat, you should invest in an outdoor fire pit, electric heater, or rustic chiminea. You can use a pit to set up an open fire in your backyard.

Chimineas act like wood-burning stoves that give off lots of radiant heat to their surroundings. If you want to put a chiminea in the middle of your patio, choose a model with a 360° mesh design that transmits heat to all its surroundings.

Outdoor fire lamps are a beautiful and cozy addition to your backyard, but it’s critical you keep them a safe distance from your home. Generally, 10 feet is the minimum distance you should keep between your house and an open flame.

The guidelines surrounding backyard fire lamps and fire pits vary between regions, so check out your county’s laws before you light a match to ensure you’re not risking a hefty fine. In most cases, a clearance of 10 feet from any structures is required for an open flame. However, in some areas, you may need as much distance as 20 feet.

Because they come in all sorts of shapes and sizes, outdoor fire lamps offer endless decorative possibilities. For example, depending on what vibe you want to create and how much room you’ve got available, you could:

  • Introduce them as wall sconces in narrower settings
  • Use a main one as a centerpiece on your patio table
  • Place more than one next to the path connecting your gate to the front door
  • Create a magical composition by placing outdoor fire lamps in a decreasing order next to each other
  • Introduce a larger, heater-style lamp next to your patio furniture to keep yourself and your guests warm when eating al fresco
