How to Choose an Outdoor Patio Dining Set
When you're choosing an outdoor patio dining set for your backyard, there are a few questions you'll want to ask yourself. Don't forget to bring your family or friends along to help you choose the perfect patio furniture dining set(s) for your unique needs.
What size table do I need for my patio dining set?
This will totally depend on the seating capacity that you need for your family. If you plan on entertaining regularly, you'll want a larger table top. If it's just you and a few friends, or just you and your spouse, a smaller table top will create a more intimate feel. It's important that you choose the size of table that makes the most sense for how you'll use your space. Your table should be an easy addition to your backyard and should complement the space that you have available.
How many pieces do I need in my outdoor dining set?
Generally speaking, you'll want to consider your seating capacity and add one piece (the table) or two pieces (table and umbrella). It may help to use more pieces, such as accent tables, depending on the best use of the space you have available for your patio items. Many of our high quality patio items are designed to be flexible with space, so you can add and remove pieces as you see fit. This can help when the number of people who will be sitting at your patio tends to fluctuate. You may also want to purchase additional chairs to keep in storage for times when you have more guests in your backyard than usual.
Which materials are best for an outdoor dining set?
Our most popular materials for our outdoor dining sets include resin wicker, aluminum, wood, and wrought iron. Let's take a look at how each product can help set off the style and decor of your backyard space.
A resin wicker patio set creates a classic experience, reminiscent of a quaint B&B. While most resin wicker patio collection items are white, resin wicker is also available in any color you choose.
An aluminum design can be a great fit if you're looking for a sturdy option that can stand up to kids, pets, and weather. Aluminum designs are available in many different styles, and you'll be able to find the perfect design to fit with the style of your backyard.
A wood patio set can create a relaxing backyard experience. A word of caution: wood requires more upkeep than other backyard patio items, so please think carefully about how much time you want to put into patio furniture maintenance before deciding to purchase wood furniture.
Ridiculously sturdy and long lasting, a wrought iron design is a great investment for patio furniture you intend to keep for years to come. This may be the best option when it comes to longevity.
Which dining table shape is best for my patio set?
Not sure what type of patio dining table makes the most sense for you? Check out our options:
With a round table, it's easy to move your dining chairs around to accommodate more people. If you have limited space, however, a round table isn't easily pushed into a corner or against a wall. Nevertheless, round tables are one of the most popular table top styles.
An oval table is a great choice when you want a style that softens rough edges. Use a round table to break up a stark, concrete space.
Perfect for entertaining, a rectangular table is a great design contrast to a patio dining set that includes an umbrella.
A square table top is the best design choice for a family of four. Bonus: it's hassle free to push a square table against the house or edge of the patio in order to make more room for other outdoor furniture when necessary.
