Garden Dining Table
A family lunch out on the patio or an outdoor dinner with your friends is one of the best ways to take advantage of every sunny day that the great weather allows us to. You can easily set up your dining space outdoors in just a few steps. As part of our garden table collection, we have created a wide variety of garden dining chairs and tables for you to choose from.
Thinking through a few things and planning ahead will help you make the best out of your outdoor dining experience. Here are a few questions and considerations you may want to think about before deciding on the right garden dining table for your outdoor space.
Decide on how many seats
With a whole variety and options to choose from, you should first consider how many people are you planning to host. An 8-seater table will easily host even a large extended family. If need be, add a few additional garden dining chairs to seat any extra guest that might pop up. Or if you prefer smaller gatherings, a 6-seater table will comfortably accommodate you and your closest friends.
If you are not sure how many people you might end up hosting, perhaps an extendable garden table is the right choice – it will fit any situation and take up as much or as little space as you may need. This option is particularly great if your patio is not that big – variable size will help you save on some of that precious outdoor space that after dinner you might want to use for something else.
If you are planning on some one-on-one time with someone (or simply don't have too much space to begin with), you might want to look into our garden bistro sets – you can create your cosy dining corner in a blink of an eye, and save both on space and money. This option is also a great choice if you are looking for balcony furniture as bistro sets will help you optimise your limited space available and give you flexibility.
Choose your frame material:
There is a whole variety of garden table materials to choose from, each one with its own aesthetics, form, and level of care.
One of the most popular materials for garden dining furniture is metal – it is an excellent option for creating industrial and modern outdoor ambiences. Metal is extremely durable and sturdy, and requires very little care – just wipe it with a damp cloth to remove any dust or dirt. Metal dining tables will also easily withstand most of the weather conditions, so you will not have to worry about leaving it outdoors.
Another traditional and time-tested material is wood. Wooden garden dining sets bring cosiness, warmth and subtle Scandinavian charm, which blends perfectly into your lush planted surroundings. Wooden garden furniture requires a bit more care but will last you for just as many years if you keep in mind to regularly wipe it down and once a year to refresh the wood with some natural colour stain or varnish.
One of the trendiest (yet still very classic) garden furnishings include rattan. A rattan garden dining table will bring a subtly retro feel to your patio and will become the centrepiece of your dining space. Rattan is an eco-friendly material that will serve you for many seasons, but it should be well cared for so as not to lose its material vibrancy.
If you really want your garden dining table to become the centre towards which all your garden activities gravitate to, you might want to consider something a bit different, perhaps even a concrete table. A beautifully designed concrete dining table will be easy to care for and, because of its unique look, will bring something special into your garden.
Select shape, features and finishes
With our wide variety of options, you can choose the shape of your garden dining table to best suit your taste and the shape of your patio. The most space-efficient dining tables are rectangular ones. You can also choose circular or square garden dining tables to find the best fit for your outdoor space. If you are planning to dine outdoors during sunny summer days, you should consider choosing a garden dining table with a parasol hole to be able to create some shade when need be. Keep in mind that not all garden dining table models include this feature, so make sure to check this before purchasing.
Our collection of garden dining tables offers a whole variety of colour choices. For a laid back and subtler feel you can choose from our black, grey and white colour models. Or if you are feeling playful, there are some yellow, teal or green options to add a splash of colour onto your patio. For some finishing touches, choose a couple of outdoor dining accessories, and your private outdoor dining experience is ready to go.
