Why should dinner time be regulated to eating solely indoors when you can turn your garden or outdoor patio area in to the perfect backdrop for a delicious meal? There’s nothing more enjoyable than dining alfresco during warmer evenings with family and friends and with warmer weather almost in our foreseeable future, it may be time to organise your outdoor furniture.
Your dining table is going to be the focal point for entertaining guests and enjoying your meal, which is why finding the right shape and size to suit your garden can make all the difference to the ambiance of your space. Depending on the size of your outdoor patio area, or the number of guests you enjoy dining with, we offer many versatile dining table options that come in a range of shapes, sizes and materials, able to suit your every outdoor entertaining needs.
Consider The Size Of Your Space
Of course, all homes come in different shapes and sizes, so finding the right outdoor furniture that will turn your space in to the inviting sanctuary that you deserve is important. If you do have a small patio or decking style setting, a smaller style dining table is the best option to make the most out of the space you do have. Made from teak slates and coated aluminium legs, we recommend the Optus Round Table if you’re looking for the ambiance of a French bistro, but in the comfort of your own home.
If your outdoor dining area is bigger, then you’ll want to fill the space with a larger statement piece, or even an extendable style dining table as it can cater to all kinds of occasions. Oversized dining tables work as a focal point within an area, offering guests or family a direct place to socialise and chill out. Our Seville Extension Table works well in contemporary environments, and includes narrow slatted wood, and a stylish extension feature.
Shapes That Matter
There are many different factors to take in to consideration when deciding what shape dining table will elevate your outside living area to its fullest and most stylish potential. For starters, you can figure out the kind of shape that will suit your space by considering how many people you’d usually have seated around it, or whether you want to fit a comfortable seating area nearby.
Instead of choosing a large rectangular shape when your seating area is limited size wise, try a smaller square dining table to create the illusion of more space. There are many tips and tricks to illuminate the area you do have and ensure that every inch has been used in the most functional yet aesthetically pleasing way.
Oval shaped dining tables give off a somewhat traditional and timeless feel, without feeling as casual as round, or as bold as a large rectangular shaped table. As long as the table you choose complements the rest of your outdoor furniture, then you’re on to a winner.
Comfort Is Key
Whether you opt for a contemporary feel, or a vintage-rustic environment, the main thing is comfort. Ensuring yourself, your family and your guests find your new dining setting comfortable and an enjoyable area to spend their time, it’ll be sure to stand the test of time.
